GoPro HD Helmet Hero review


The GoPro HD Helmet Hero may not be as small or good-looking as the Contour GPS action cam, but it has plenty of other advantages. Like the GPS, it can shoot at 1,920x1,080 at 30fps and also has a 60fps 720p mode, which is great for slo-mo footage.

Stunning image quality, albeit with average audio, makes this the best action camera we've seen

GoPro HD Helmet Hero


I used this for the first time last week. I have the ipad2 and bought the gopro as the video format is recognised by imovie. I uploaded the footage simply by plugging the sd card into the ipad adapter and edited my footage on the journey back from...

If any the interface. some options you wouldnt remember without the instruction. But that takes nothing away from this awesome camera. I only gave the image quality 9 as the gopro2 has better
