Throw this in a delrin case or something and it would make an awesome camera.

GoPro does 30fps at 1080, or 60fps at 720.

Compared to what? When you went to the movies as a kid (and up until the recent use of digital projectors) they ran the film at 24 frames per second.

For your edification:

Frame rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If this is 30 fps based on true film speed rather than process speed, and you aren't looking to analyze frame by frame for still image capture, then 30 fps for watching youtube videos is plenty fine.

Seems to me it would be a simple operation to remove the lens from the board, build a nice extension cable for it, and then re-attach.

part in bold would not be so simple depending on how the camera is built. something on that small scale is rather difficult for an average joe to jerry rig. i know because i've tried gutting out an old camcorder's lens module before. it was even conveniently plugged to the main board by a ribbon cable, but alas it's just too tiny.

Also by making an extension, you can greatly influence image quality and even camera functionality.

I like this project; video quality is very sharp -- you might be able to out-Gopro Gopro (at least the HERO1).

However, the worst thing about the Gopro is the form factor, which you have seemingly replicated. So everybody is back to square one scratching their heads and wondering how to mount the thing.

Which direction is even "up" on the imager? Is that configurable considering it's a 9MP sensor?

Speaking of configurability... being able to program the thing for different applications might be nice.

One of my peeves with the Gopro is the lack of programmability, even though I'm certain that the hardware underneath is very capable. If it can't be reprogrammed to do simple things like an intervalometer or continuous-recording-mode-with-event-save type stuff... might be a tough sell. Sure, the intervalometer could be external... but that's more crap to buy and wire up when the hardware should be perfectly capable of doing it. Probably not applicable to paintball, but more for other applications.

Luckily, my name is not Joe and I am far from average. Oh, and I work for a cable manufacturer.

One of the nice things about the OP camera is that it is H.264 which means that dropped frames are minimal. I do not like the fish eye lens on it though...always hated that look.

The other camera had the vid quality of several of the key chain cameras out there. And the darker earth colors get turned to purple. A great reviewer of these cameras is at Techmoan - YouTube

But found a sample video here:
