Audio Excellence

We've invested more in the HD HERO2 camera's sound system than most companies spend on their entire camera development. You'll only be hearing the sounds of your experience, not the howl of the wind. How? Obsessive audio engineering and an understanding that good sound is as important as good video. The HD HERO2 also utilizes a 3.5mm stereo external mic input for professional sound quality.

Shockproof & Waterproof to 197' (60m)

Proven in heavy surf from Hawaii to Tahiti, Southern Mexico to Northern California, HD HERO2 cameras can handle it thanks their highly engineered polycarbonate exoskeletal housing. Ready for action ranging from scuba diving to dirt track racing, and tough enough to take a spin across the asphalt, GoPros are built to take a beating & keep filming. Replacement lens kits & housings are available, so there's little worry while going for glory - even while diving with sharks.

True HD

New Easy-To-Use Interface

Simple Language-based user LCD interface.

One Button Mode: One Button Mode forces the camera to automatically begin recording in its default power up mode once the camera is ON. To stop recording, you turn the camera OFF.

LED Lights: LED lights on all sides. This allows you to know if the camera is on from nearly any angle.

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery lasts 2.5 Hours, Heater Included

The included 1100mAh Lithium-Ion battery lasts 2.5 hours and is rechargeable through any USB port. You can charge it with your computer or with any USB compatible wall or car charger. You can even use the camera while the battery is charging, convenient for filming road trips where you might leave the camera running for long periods of time. The Battery BacPac is a second battery can be added to the back of the camera, doubling the battery life to 5 hours. Wall Chargers and Car Chargers are also available from GoPro.

For colder temperatures, an integrated battery heater helps keep the battery warm during winter sports, extending recording times beyond what's possible with other camera systems.

I'm a keen sports enthusiast from mountain biking to snowboarding to wakeboarding, the GoPro captures it all. It was a shame that the Surf Edition did not come with even one mount to attach to a helmet. However with it's 2 surf mounts and the floaty back door along with a standard waterproof back door, I was still pleasantly surprised. With the addition of the Grab Bag of Mounts I am now all set up to take this cam anywhere I go. With its new features the Hero2 is packing more punch than the original which was already performing well. Shop around and u can get urself a real bargain

Positives:
Crystal clear HD video shooting that can be taken anywhere your imagination can think off.
Wide angle ensures that you are always in frame and always in focus.
It says it is a massive 60m water proof.

Negatives:
You need to buy lots of different mounts and housings to get full use of the camera in all situations. This increases the cost, but still worth it.
Still shots are only decent in daylight, and still not as good as a dedicated compact camera. However, I am sure you would not want to buy this for your average holiday snap.
I couldn't use their editing software because I am on a 3 year old Mac. Needs a more updated OS. I just rely on iMovie '08 for now.

Great product, you only have to look at the Go Pro website to see how good the footage is on these camera's. Great step up from the original and GO PRO are still leading the way in action filming.

As per the Go Pro website; "Please note that due to the curved lens of the HD HERO2 (and the original HD HERO) waterproof housing you will notice a slight loss of sharpness with underwater images."

"slight loss of sharpness" is an understatement. Despite thousands of requests by users of the older version Go Pro still haven't fixed the problem with the case which means underwater images are awful. Avoid is you're looking to use for diving or snorkeling until the problem is fixed or they supply an alternative case. There are 3rd party lenses that you can buy to replace the lens but it will invalidate your warranty, can be difficult to fit, etc...

I've updated my rating of the camera to 4 stars because it works well with the new optional case. Jan 2014

my first experience with the GoPro, mainly bought for a skiing holiday which is coming up in a few weeks time. Received today, installed 'Integral' branded 32Gb SD card also sourced from Amazon for circa £26, charged battery.... all very easy. Have tried the camera on each of the settings and am really impressed with the wide angle field of view and clarity of the images. I bought the SURF version as I'll need those mounts for my kayak, but I have also purchased mounts for my skiing helmet. looks like this has been a good buy and am really looking forward to the skiing now!

I have only used it on 3 sessions -on a bike &on a land yacht Each time the first 2 clips have been fine and subsequent ones
very hazy I was putting this down to some of the shots being into the sun but someone told me in the last couple of days that
there is condensation inside the camera lens the description I bought this on was very good condition which it appears to be
untrue I have since checked the housing in water -without the camera and that seems fine Please advise I do not want to make
a fuss Just want a GoPro that does the job
Thanks
