GoPro HD Hero review and helmet cam face-off

 

What's this, another tiny, high-definition camera to strap onto your person before doing something wild and crazy? Yes, it's the latest pixel-pushing

Great image and audio quality ; Wide lens captures all the action ; Waterproof case is included

Flimsy, unreliable mounts ; Difficult to use with gloves on ; Confusing menu

Sensible price, lots of accessories available, rugged, beautiful images in good light

Screen is optional extra, waterproof housing can be a faff, not well suited to normal video camera activity

For less than £200 you can get an HD camcorder that produces vivid, high-quality, 1080p video.

GoPro HD Hero

 

This one tip will make your videos better: Move the camera to meet your subject. If you're shooting children, get low. If you're shooting skyscrapers, try an aerial view. And if you're shooting a surf sequence, find the nearest point break and get into...

Good quality build; fine image quality; convenient size; reasonable price

Auto-everything can produce funky exposure; clunky menu system; no LCD

Australian Macworld’s buying advice. The HD Hero is for people willing to invest a little extra time to get shots that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive, or risky, to film. It’s a godsend to those who don’t want to risk trashing an expensive...
