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.
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.

"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
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
The footage I did get was good but I'm very disappointed that it only worked for three (two and a half!) surfs.
Hopefully it will be replaced with one that works.
Also check the warranty before you buy. GoPro won't honour the warranty if their waterproof camera gets wet!
Hopefully I just got an unlucky one built on a Friday afternoon.
There cheaper to buy on Amazon than the Gopro Site, a lot cheaper in fact. Its a great product
But all the Gopro Items are too costly to really invest in everything that goes with it.
Do not be afraid of the Firm where upgrading if you look at the Gopro Videos and follow them its simple, do not be bamboozled by the none official so called help Videos pn line
