GoPro HD Hero 2 Outdoor is the best camera for extreme activities

Image

this is the review for the selected GoPro HD Hero camera.

The GoPro HD Hero2 Outdoor Edition is a compact camcorder designed to record your extreme adventures. Whether you’re skydiving, rock climbing, or snowboarding, the Hero2 can survive the elements thanks to its sophisticated protective case. It’s also fairly inexpensive for a helmet camera , so if it does drop from an extreme height the replacement cost will be less than that of the competing Contour+ camcorder.

Design and Features

The HD Hero2 camera itself is as basic as it can get. The camera is a silver cuboid with two control buttons, a monochrome LCD, and a wide-angle lens. It measures 1.6 by 2.4 by 1.2 inches (HWD) and weighs 3.3 ounces, which makes it a bit smaller and lighter than the 2.3 by 1.3 by 3.9 inch, 5.3 ounce Contour+. Adding the protective housing to the GoPro increases its weight a fair amount, bringing it up to 5.9 ounces.

The camera has just two buttons. The front button acts as a power toggle and mode selector; tapping it cycles through video recording, still capture, burst still capture, and the settings menu. The top button is used to start recording, grab a photo, and navigate through the menu system. Because of its simple design, the menus can be a bit tricky to scroll through, although there are, thankfully, only a few settings to configure. You can choose between three different video modes and control the volume of the beeps that the camera makes to confirm that it’s recording, and that’s about it. Because the menus can take some time to operate, it’s probably a good idea to take the time to navigate through them during some downtime.

  • PROS

Inexpensive. Rugged construction. Good quality video. Compact. Waterproof to 197 feet.

  • CONS

Limited battery life. Archaic control system. Fixed focal length lens. No GPS.

  •  BOTTOM LINE

The GoPro HD Hero2 is a rugged HD video camera that can take a beating and go deep underwater. It includes a number of different mounting tools so that

you can affix it to a helmet, skateboard, or anything else you can imagine.
