    Are you talking about 5 hours of continuous shooting? If yes, finding one will be quite a challenge if even possible due to battery life. However, according to the description on Amazon ( the GoPro 2 recording times are as follows:
    "Media saved to SD card, up to 32GB capacity (SDHC). Average recording times using a 32GB card:
    •1080p @ 30 FPS = 4 hours
    •960p @ 30 FPS = 6 hours
    •720p @ 60 FPS = 4 hours
    •720p @ 30 FPS = 9 hours
    •WVGA @ 120 FPS = 4.5 hours"

    For about $60 less you could consider the Sony HDR-AS10 HD Action Camcorder (
    "Recording Time in Minutes:

    Mode 8GB 16GB 32GB
    HQ 60 125 250
    SSLOW 40 80 165
    SLOW 80 165 330
    STD 160 325 650
    VGA 295 600 1205"
    According to what I have read Sony does not advertise information on battery life.

    The Swann Atom HD Wearable Action Camera with LCD Screen supposedly has a maximum recording time of 4.5 hours in full HD. Never mind, looked at the Swann site and the battery life is about 1.5 hours.

    Looks like the biggest challenge is finding one with a battery powerful enough to last five hours.
  2. i had a look at the sony it seems alright but the go pro seems a bit beyond the budget
  3. could i take another battery or even an SD card

    Depending on which one you choose you could see if a longer life battery is available and you could see what the maximum size card the camera supports.
