Default Go Pro Limitations...?

Can one use a HD Go Pro like a hand held cam corder or does it need to be mounted? My girl wants a cam corder and I want the go pro...... Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Jr.

a go pro is definatley not a camcorder.... a gopro works great for what it was designed for but you cannot use it the same as a camcorder.....

I was cleaning my garage the other day and saw my powell skateboard with your bones logo on it...

The list goes on... buy both :-)
