About GoPro

GoPro's HD Helmet HERO is the world's highest performance wearable 1080p HD video and still photo camera. Professional quality 1080p / 960p / 720p HD resolutions record at 30 and 60 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). Record up to 2.5 hours on a single charge and up to 9 hours total on a 32GB SD card (not included).

The camera can also shoot automatic 5MP photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second intervals during your activity, hands free. Press the shutter button once at the start of your activity and record up to 2.5 hours of poster-print quality photos of you and your friends, living it up. Included are mounts for attaching the camera to three helmets and two pieces of gear or vehicles, as well as a head strap allowing you to wear the camera like a headlamp.

You can also pull this strap over helmets for easy camera sharing between friends. One of the above mentioned helmet mounts is a lace-through strap-mount designed for vented helmets. The HD Helmet HERO is compatible with all other GoPro HERO camera mounting accessories, so it's very easy to expand the functionality of your camera to also suction cup to vehicles, clamp to bike handlebars and seat posts, mount to surfboards and even be worn on the wrist or chest. Waterproof to 180' / 60m and protected from rocks and other hazards thanks to its removable polycarbonate housing.

GO PRO is fine for playing with!

This is definitely a POV (point of view) camera, and as long as that is not forgotten, the GO PRO will fit the bill. You cannot get the same quality as you would from a Sony HDR / SR / CX line of camcorder, but you can't fit a Sony in such a small space, or take it down 180 ft. without an expensive $800 plus housing. But you can take the GO PRO.

My son LOVES this video cam.

By

We are still getting acquainted with this product but we like what we have seen so far. It takes a little time to digest the instructions and work out things like "how to work without a view finder or LCD screen." The camera is so compact and light, it is a wonder.

Awesome, durable, fun camera.

By

Possibilities are endless. Great picture quality. Super easy to capture outdoor action and fun. Only minor complaints: some kind of decoder wheel should be included to decipher all the cryptic setting codes. Setting up mounting angles requires some trial and error since there is no real time display.

Great Picture

By

We use this camera at the dirtbike track and so far it has withstanded water, rocks, dirt, and crashes. This is a tough camera with a great picture. Sound quality is great too! It does not have a wind noise in the background. All I hear is the sound of the dirtbike. It's a great camera!

Great Camera!

By

We ride dirtbikes on the weekends and crashes tend to happen from time to time and this camera has held up quite well! The sprinklers are turned on to wet the track and with the underwater housing the camera stays dry as can be, but does not taken away from the sound quality at all. The HD quality on this camera is excellent! Overall I would definitely recommend this camera!

Very versatile!

By

Keep the instructions close at hand for the first while to help navigate the cryptic menu for settings. Otherwise, a great little take anywhere HD camera that is waterproof and capable of recording high-speed (60fps) action.
