Quick question :  Has anyone tried to use go cam footage for microstock?  Is it the right file type? 

Thanks!

Go Cam? Or do you mean GoPro?

I don't know about Go Cam (never used) but seems to me quality of the video is not very suitable for MS. I'm using GoPro3 black and it's really amazing camera at 1080p60 / 720p120 / 1440p48 / 4kp15 / 2.7kp30 / WVGA-240fps. It's a bit expensive (450eur) for such a small camera but worth every cents.
Another option is Sony HDR-AS15 HD Action Camcorder at slightly better price.

Many of the sports networks use footage from these cameras -- motocross/supercross for instance mounts the camera on a helmet and records the race from racer point of view.  Works great.  If network uses the footage ... should be commercially viable.   ;D

Have they sorted out the lock-up issues that I read about?

I just sold my Hero1 to a friend, but I'm still a bit gunshy about the Hero3 Black... I REALLY want 1080p @ 60FPS, though!!

Something doesnt look right with the pricing  of your large file jpg on your website.

Large is the cheapest at 2.50. Unless thats what it needs to be,

Thank you all.  I have been thinking about doing some video.  I am in a photo funk.  You know the one:  "I hate my camera and want to smash it to bits."  That one.  I have a somewhat limited budget for a vid. cam.  The camera looks "fun" but maybe  not very useful for stock.

Always thankful for the input. 

 :)
