I use the GoPro. Although it's great for action sports, not so great for hunting. The wide angle and no zoom, makes the deer seem like it's a mile away, even at 20-30 yds. Also requires alot of light, not usually found when in the woods.
I used the handlebar mount, and mounted it right on the riser. You can also mount on the stabilizer.

I have the original Hero. Yea, light really hasn't been a problem, it's the "no zoom" thing that doesn't work well with hunting.
I mount it to my ATV also, and the footage is awesome. That's where the GP can't be beat.
Let me see if I can dig up a doe kill I have, and upload it to a site.

Not that I know of Muzz. They are making flat lenses for the weatherproof cover to eliminate the fisheye, but don't think it would help with hunting.
People seem to be using the flat lens for underwater mostly, from what I have seen.
I'm sure it's just a matter of time before they start selling a zoom model.
