Yeah, I've seen the screen. Seems a bit spendy and kills some of the GoPro's allure (makes it a lot larger). The G12 is a lot bigger than a GoPro, but it's small enough to work fine for the speedo vids. It sits right next to my head the way I have it mounted on the window. I don't think it would work with a helmet on. The suction cup mount I have for it looks very similar to the GoPro suction cup mount. For automotive videos I'd much rather have the camera (GoPro or other) mounted to the car. Seems like it would be a lot less nauseating vs on a helmet.
