GoPro HD Hero2 Motorsports Edition

 

I've had a bit of a love-hate relationship with the GoPro HD Hero that we've used during the recording of the Car Tech Live podcast for the last year or so. On the one hand, the Hero takes phenomenal wide-angle video, is ridiculously durable thanks to...

The GoPro HD Hero2 boasts improved optics, a few new video- and still-photo-shooting modes, and backward compatibility with current HD Hero accessories. Most importantly, its interface has been overhauled and is now much easier to view and understand.

As improved as it is, the Hero2's interface can still be a bit confusing for the first-time user.

The GoPro HD Hero2 is easily the best GoPro camera yet, with the ruggedness and quality that we've come to expect and a new user-friendly interface.

Professional Action Video in a Tiny Package

Size; number of modes; accessories; image/footage quality

Noise in low-light conditions

Using the Hero2 is easy, although the LCD screen is tiny and the buttons are somewhat difficult to operate with the waterproof housing in place. Yet I found the GoPro HD Hero2 to be a professional camera by any standard, except for one thing: in poor...

Good photo/video quality, large number of mounting options and replacement parts, shockproof, waterproof

No viewfinder, tiny LCD display, two button interface menu, bad performance in low light conditions

GoPro Motorsports HD Hero has a great video and photograph quality. There are lots of mounting options and is shock proof and waterproof. Buy it if you don't mind the tiny screen and the two button interface.

GoPro Motorsports HERO Wide Camera Review

 

First, you have a suction mount cup system that you can use for any car, truck, or van that has glass windows. Additionally it can be used on your vehicles side panel, the top of the car, sunroof and on any flat non-porous surface. This isn't your...

GoPro HD Hero 2 Motorsports Edition

 

The GoPro HD Hero 2 Motorsports Edition is the latest edition of the extreme sports fans favourite video and stills mini-digital camera.

The big change with the GoPro HD Hero 2 is that it will now handle Full HD with ease, while the previous model only dealt with 720p. This means getting high-quality footage when out and about is easy

We’re accustomed to instant playback of video and photos from our digital cameras but with so little space to play with, you won’t find this the case here. The rather limited number of buttons also makes scrolling through the Menu system a little...

The GoPro HD Hero 2 Motorsports Edition takes what we already knew about this extreme mini-camera and ramps it up, giving the motor enthusiast everything they need to get out there and record what they’re doing for posterity. The whole kit is well...

"It's pretty good."

 

There's quite a few cons, but overall it'll be exciting to have an use. It's nice to just stop on a river and stick the camera in and take a picture.

It has good video when you put it on the highest setting, it seems fairly durable so far, and the interface is easy once you get the hang of it, but it took a while to figure it out for the first time.

Quality is awful in low light conditions, the battery life on video is bad but in order to charge it while in the case you have to buy an all new 40 dollar skeleton case, after you've already spent 300 dollars on the camera and 30 on the memory card.

"GoPro did it right this time!!!"

 

Overall, this is an amazing HD camera for the price and the many options you can use it for. To be waterproof, have multiple HD selections, great sound quality, and of course light weight sets this camera above the rest. I highly recommend this.

One of the biggest overall improvements from the first version would have to be sound quality. Second, of course is the multiple options for video quality as well as HD.

2 small cons would have to be the loss of the eye sight which was on the first version. It had its moments that would help line of sight for recording. Second, which in minor, is the use of the menu options. First time users will be confused.

Product Specifications

GoPro's HD Motorsports Hero is the world's highest performance 1080p HD on-board video and still photo camera. Professional quality 1080p, 960p, and 720p HD resolutions record at 30 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). The HD Motorsports Hero easily mounts to any helmet, motorcycle, ATV, car, plane, jet ski, boat, snowmobile or other vehicle. The camera's quick-release mounting design makes it easy to re-position the camera around your vehicle for professional quality HD video from several angles. GoPro's obsession with sound has conquered the wind. At 85 mph on a motorcycle, you'll enjoy the throaty sound of your motor, not the wind. Inside even the quietest street cars, hear the pull of your motor...not the drone of the wind and road. The camera can also shoot automatic 5MP photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second intervals during your drive or ride, hands free. Press the shutter button once and record up to 2.5 hours of poster-print quality photos. Waterproof to 180/60m and protected from rocks and other hazards thanks to its removable polycarbonate housing.
