I cant give you a gaurantee about the 16Gb card, but we have used 2Gb, 4Gb, 8Gb and 16Gb in ours with no problems (without updating firmware as it suggests on GoPro site).

You get everything execpt BATTERIES and SD CARD. Get those and its ready to go. Oh... of course you'll need a PC with SD card reader or USB port!

£150 posted, thats correct (in the UK)
