Advice needed. The essential GoPro kit is as much as the actual camera isn't it <<cries>>;

DS is almost 11 and would like a GoPro. This would be a joint birthday and Xmas gift.

Am I right in thinking that the basic camera (£130) also needs a memory card, bike mount and a super suit?

Although, if the camera is waterproof what is the super suit for? Does that protect against bashes?

It doesn't seem to come in one whole kit, or is that what the £300+ kits are confused.

apart from the camera don't buy the accessories from gopro, they're a rip off. Amazon do mounts for a few pounds. The cameras need a frame to attach to the mount, you can normally buy these in a bundle.

source: purchased head mount for scuba diving, water proof case for diving, bike mount off amazon for about £40

Thanks 12th. A friend mentioned that generic accessories were ok.
