The Genius Behind this Great Little Camera…

Developed by GoPro, a world leader in wearable sports cameras, the HD Hero is the world’s first TRUE high definition wearable camera. Recording 1920x1080 HD footage at 30 frames per second, the Hero captures your thrilling moments in crystal clarity that puts you back in the middle of the excitement every time you play it back. This slick little camera can also be set to record at 960p “full frame” resolution for a maximum field of view at 30 frames per second, while it also boasts the ability to shoot at 720p at either 30 or 60 frames per second. When you film at 30 fps you get a fluid realism that is super pleasing to the eye, while 60 fps provides slow motion footage that spreads like butter.


Miss Nothing with a Wider Angle of View…

The Hero is equipped with the industry’s widest 170° Surround Video™, which takes in much more of the scene, eliminating the worry of severing your buddies heads and lower legs when recording at 960 or 720p. Recording with a slightly narrower angle of view at the 1080p setting, the Hero is the perfect choice for adding a little variety to your videos. GoPro also records superior HD sound with their highly developed recording system. This means that the audio captured enhancing your videos, as opposed to dragging them down with irritating wind noise. 

This camera just seems to keep getting better doesn’t it… well we’ve only got a few more things to cover, then you can get down to making that all important choice… I promise.


Did Someone say Still Imagery?

Guess which camera eliminates the need to carry a second camera to capture still imagery? You got it… the HD Hero shoots 5 megapixel images, perfect for a nice sharp print. Wait, we are not done yet… it also can be set to shoot images every 2, 5, 10, 30 and 60 seconds in Auto-Photo Mode. This camera has the ability to be set for 3 photo burst mode and also has a self timer mode… so you’ll never be left out of the shot again.


Water is NO MATCH for the HD Hero!

But another standard addition with each package is the Rugged Waterproof Housing which is able to accompany you to depths of unto 180 feet, or 60 meters. As an added bonus, all orders include a free 4GB SD memory card, while shipping and the POV Filming Guide are always provided free of charge.

Sounds pretty awesome doesn’t it? Well you really only have one more decision to make… and that means deciphering exactly what your recording needs are…

So lets break down these packages and see what makes the most sense for you.
