You ask, and PointofViewCameras delivers; A quick and dirty comparison between the Twenty20 VholdR Helmet Cameraand the Go Pro Hero Wide 5MP Camera. We take the feedback of customers, our own internal gear experts, and even ask the cameras themselves if they’d like to battle it out. Here’s what we’ve got in the lightweight class championship match;Vholdr vs GoPro .
In the VholdR corner, we have the lean, the mean, action sports cam adventure shooting machine, the Twenty20 VholdR for $279.99
- The VholdR shoots a bit better than the GoPro in low light, (the VholdR is a bit of a lady’s man)
- The VholdR is a bit more compact than the GoPro, (you won’t find any love handles on this baby
- The VholdR helmet camera looks sleeker mounted (the GoPro has its own charm)
- It has a rechargeable battery (nothing’s going to hold this baby back)
- Laser Beams!!It’s easier to direct the angle you’re shooting at since it has the laser beams (it’s also a fantastic icebreaker for when you spot a cute girl in the woods)
- Usability!! The Vholdr is very easy to use (it practically runs itself).
- Memory!! The Vholdr has more memory
In the Go Pro Camera corner we have our little Hero, The Go Pro Hero Wide 5 MP; $139.99
- The Go Pro Hero waterproof (waterproof casing works well, check out our Go Pro Surf Hero Wide for Surf mounting options)
- The Go Pro Helmet Camera is cheap (recession-proof, and your buddy on the slopes is less likely to snatch it off your helmet as he races by)
- Pictures!! You have the option to take a picture every five seconds. (hands-free candid shots of glory)
- It comes with several mounts, all of which work well. (Mounting Bling From Surf to Motorbike to Helmet to Hat - Check out the Go Pro Helmet Hero Wide and the Go Pro Motorsports Hero Wide)
- The Go Pro takes AAA batteries, which are easier and cheaper than a re-chargeable battery (and those little batteries are so cute).
- Durability! ( this baby won’t break - you don’t have to worry about the lens or the button - even when the VholdR gets in a head lock.)
- Functional Interface (you can erase videos, including those embarrassing clips *before* playing them back to your friends on your computer or tv)
- Noise settings - The Go Pro Hero has 2 settings; high and low for noise, so you can prevent wind noise (or drown out your buddy if he/she brags to much about the wave or the powder)
