Be A Hero – The GoPro HD Hero 2 Camera

The Best Sports Cam on the Market, Period.

Although you may not have heard of a GoPro Camera, chances are you have seen footage from the tiny HD Hero 2 camera all over the internet. Surfer’s POV from inside giant barrels, freestyle motorcross jumps from a helmet cam, skydivers flying over mountainous terrain, race car drivers pushing their vehicles to the limits, indeed it seems that there is no place the GoPro HD Hero 2 camera can not go.

Recently, GoPro released the HD Hero 2 as an update to the HD Hero and the results are amazing. Video footage from the original HD Hero looked good, but the new HD Hero 2 looks way better. A new sensor in the camera truly delivers stunning HD quality with more vibrant and realistic colors, sharper details, and brightness and contrast that are much more balanced. There is also a full 170 degree view while filming in 1080p, and there are more options for frame-rates and sizes. The HD Hero 2 can shoot still photos at 11 megapixels (HD Hero was just 5 megapixels), and it can process images much faster, which means you can take a time-lapse with one shot every half of a second, or you can shoot 10 shot per second bursts.

The GoPro HD Hero 2’s user interface has been refined as well, making it much easier to set up and use the functions. Actual words are used on the small screen instead of abbreviations. There are now 4 LED lights that blink while you are recording, so you know that you are rolling from any way the camera is facing. The HD Hero 2 also has a mini HDMI output to connect with a TV for big-screen viewing. They also added some new accessories like a Wi-Fi BacPac that allows for remote control and real-time streaming, which is very cool. There’s an LCD BacPac which allows you to line up your shots and play them back. And since the HD Hero 2 is the same exact size/shape/configuration as the HD Hero, all the first generation HD Hero accessories will fit perfectly. It also still features it’s sturdy housing that is waterproof up to 197′.

  • Awesome for personal use but no one else wants to watch your video. Unless you are a pro, don’t post a video of you surfing on you tube. You’re not that good.

  • Me and my little bro use the outdoor edition GoPRO for snowboarding…didnt use it much last season cause the snow was so bad. I want to try and film us surfing but were not very good yet haha! Maybe this summer well perfect our skills!

  • The GoPro HD Hero 2 is hands down the best camera on the market for any action sports. I have used it for surfing, kiteboarding, and motocross and am always surprised at how good the video looks. Big thanks goes to Sean at Sundance Beach customer service for answering my questions and being so helpful. He was knowledgeable about GoPros and uses one when he rides his supermoto. I will definitely purchase my GoPro accessories from them in the future. Cool site too. 🙂
