The GoPro line of super tiny, super durable cameras have become a bit of an industry standard when it comes to sports and outdoor movie making. From surfing, sky diving and even doggie cams, GoPro videos are all over the internet right now and are deemed to become ever more ubiqitus with the launch of the brand new GoPro HD Hero2. A fully HD and fully overhauled GoPro that's even easier to use, but remains the same tiny size.
What we really love about the GoPro range of wearable cameras is how small and lightweight they are, but if like us you sometimes wish you could use your HD Hero Camera in way more like a traditional camera, such as viewing back footage you’ve just covered, then the accessory you need is the GoPro LCD BacPac. Adding extra functionality to your HD Hero Camera, a favourite of ours is the full text viewing of all your menu items instead of the cryptic lettering on the front screen.
The HD Hero Camera from GoPro is pretty perfect as it is, but like any electronic devices these days, we want them smaller and lighter, and usually it’s the battery life that suffers the most from this. Luckily GoPro have a solution for those of us that want extended video and photo time with our HD Hero Cameras, and the GoPro Battery BacPac is the perfect little solution to the relatively short 2.5hour batter life of the HD Hero Camera.
There is nothing more exhilarating then the thrill of riding 85 miles per hour across rough terrain on a motocross bike, enjoying the sound of your engine roaring. Trying to capture and share these moments of utter bliss on the other hand, is usually not as enjoyable, requiring either overly expensive equipment or destroying cheaper handheld HD cameras like the Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1010 Camcorder, that just aren’t built for speed and a little destruction.
What any motocross or auto racing fanatic needs is a reliable and exceptional camera to document their moments of glory in style. With that in mind GoPro created the HD Motorsports HERO, a professional grade full HD 1080p video camera that mounts to virtually anything, whether it’s a helmet, motorcycle, car, ATV, jet ski, snowmobile, or boat.
If you’ve been desperate to join the wearable camera gang on YouTube and start posting videos of your sickest tricks but just can’t afford the original HD HERO camera price tag but want something a little more professional than the cheap Flip UltraHD, look no further than the GoPro HD HERO 960. This is the most adorable of the GoPro wearable camera range, and is perfect for young extreme sports enthusiasts.
Who would have believed that it could be possible to create your very own 3D home movies just a few years ago? The only problem with this new breed of 3D camera is that they are extremely expensive, heavy and cumbersome, not to mention expensive. For extreme sports enthusiasts 3D footage is something that they could only dream about, until GoPro came up with a pretty simple solution to the problem. Why not combine two 1080p HD Hero Cameras into a single housing, so you could record 3D videos and photos, whilst also capturing regular 2D footage? That’s exactly what GoPro have done with the GoPro 3D HERO System.
Have you ever fantasised about you and your longboard barrell surfing through YouTube, your video carving its way to the attention of all those gnarly hotties you’ve added on Facebook? This might have been a pipe dream before GoPro came along and created the HD Surf HERO, the surf-specific HD camera developed specifically for surfing. This is the most affordable and yet most functional action sports HD camera on the market, perfect for the cash strapped surfer trying to find his or her endless summer.
Showing off your incredible extreme sports skills time and again can get pretty tiring, let alone it being dangerous to try recreate those unique moments. It’s why there is a growing popularity for high adrenaline extreme sports videos on Youtube. Not a day goes by where another amazing wingsuit flyby, skateboarding stunt video, high speed freeride down the side of a mountain and other awe-inspiring sports videos get posted and shared online.
So how exactly do these sky divers, skateboarders, motocross drivers, surfers, BMX bikers and other adventurers capture such amazing footage of themselves performing incredible feats of human athleticism and daring? They couldn’t possibly be using any kind of standard video equipment, it just wouldn’t be safe. Instead these daredevils use the exceptionally safe GoPro HD Helmet Hero to capture these amazing moments.
If you’re an adrenaline junkie that loves to show off, it makes sense that you should film your memorable exploits, be it to share with the Internet on YouTube or to create beautiful movies to show on your HDTV to your friends. There is no better way to create these videos than with a GoPro Wearable Camera like the GoPro HD HERO Naked. Developed to be used during extreme sports the HD Hero camera can shoot videos or photos from your point of view while via your helmet or chest mount, or mount it on your surfboard or motorcycle.
