    I really want to love this camera. **Updated, July 7, 2010
    MD Boatbum (Annapolis, MD) –
    This review is from: GoPro HD Motorsports Hero (Camera)

    This is close to being a perfect example of a wearable/mountable POV camera. But unfortunately, close isn’t quite good enough.

    The pros:
    Video is awesome, in all of the modes.
    Stills are very good quality, the timelapse feature is fantastic.
    It’s waterproof.
    The mounting options are (almost) limitless.

    The cons:
    It’s awkward to set up. Menu is like something from 20 years ago.
    Firmware issues have yet to be addressed by the manufacturer. This is inexcusable as the camera has been available for sale for nearly a year.
    Audio is useless. They could have saved weight and cost by just not including a mic. The only instance where it even sort of works is when mounted right near a loudish sound you want to highlight, such as an engine.
    There are too many instances where “Macgyvering” is required to get the desired result. The quick release mount rattles so you need to tape the base plate, the non waterproof back allows too much wind noise, so you need to tape over the openings, the shutter button rattles, so you need to tape over that. Moral of the story: BUY TAPE.
    The support by the manufacturer is not quite adequate. I realize it’s a small start up company, but for all the issues with the use of the camera and the handling/editing of the files, they really need to release some conclusive videos or articles to address these concerns.

    People who might find this camera useful:
    Auto racing enthusiasts
    Mountain Bikers
    Hobbyist videographers looking for those unique shots

    People who will likely be disappointed and frustrated by this camera:
    Pretty much anyone who thinks they’ll be using it as a camcorder.
    People who aren’t really tech savvy and/or have an older computer
    People who don’t like to tinker and engineer solutions to make it do what they want.

    As of September 7, 2010, Gopro released the new firm ware for the camera. It seems to have fixed most of the bugs/issues. It also provides the option for upside down mounting.

    Great HD Camera for Adventure Minded People, January 26, 2010
    technojerry “technojerry” (Ridgecrest, CA United States) –
    This review is from: GoPro HD Helmet Hero (Camera)

    I have used this camera a couple of times since receiving it for Christmas. I have used both the strap mount for my vented bicycle helmet as well as the permanent stick on mount for my dual sport motorcycle helmet. In both cases, the mounts work as well as the camera. I still have the previous generation GoPro HERO in standard definition, but not in the wide field of view lens configuration like the current HD version. I like the wide field of view of this HD model. It is great at giving a very good view of both the trail as will as your handlebar movements while riding both my mountain bike or motorcycle. The quality of the video is fantastic. The files do get large, but that is to be expected with the high resolution of this camera. I have been using a 16GB SDHC card and have filed up about half of it on one battery charge. I would recommend a high speed card reader to improve the download times from the card. A 12 min video was nearly a gigabyte. The battery last I think longer than the previous standard definition camera which ran on AAA batteries. I think that I will buy an additional battery someday for long rides with lots of action.

    The only reason I have not given it a full 5 stars is the difficulty in reading the small status screen with all the various modes it has. The same issue I have with the standard definition HERO. The icons that tell you if you are in burst, still, timed, or video mode are very small across the top of the display. The numbers to tell you the number of pictures or videos taken are much larger. It is just difficult if you have the camera mounted on top of your helmet and you try and look in the mirror on your bike to see if the camera is on and what mode it is. You have to use the select button on the front to both turn the camera on and select the right mode. The shutter button is on top and is easy to operator even with gloves. It is not difficult to read the display if you are holding the camera in front of you, but much more difficult when mounted on top of your helmet. You can unclip the camera from the mount, but that can be difficult when it is on top of your helmet.

    I am looking forward to the expansion port options being available, like the LCD screen to view the videos in the field. I am also thinking of investing in the chest strap mount so I can get different view over the handle bars as will as making it easier to see the small status display. Other than the small icons telling you which mode, this is a very nice camera that takes very high quality action videos. It is very small and light and easy to use when you have it in the right mode. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone wanting action videos of their bicycling, motorcycle, or skiing activities.

    Great, but not underwater!, October 6, 2010
    This review is from: GoPro HD Helmet Hero (Camera)

    the good…
    Great package. Plenty of accessories for customized mounting. nice small and simple design. strong housing, yet clasp can be broken easily if not properly aligned and forced to close. Amazing picture quality. setup menu a little dated.

    the bad…
    Was bought for its waterproof qualities in preparation for a Fiji trip. HOWEVER, contrary to what GoPro touts, it is not great for underwater. The reason is the housing curvature over the lense curvature combined with water defraction creates blurry images. this is only found in the GoPro FAQs. very misleading. do an internet search on this. had to buy a special housing with flat lense from eyeofmine.com at $80. Now picture quality underwater is the same as above water. this is where my two stars came from.

    If you want it for underwater and don’t mind buying a new housing for $80, then I recommend, if not, don’t buy.
    If you are using this not for its waterproof qualities, then I recommend.
