Intercoastal Breathalyzer was the first experience I had with the GoPro HD Hero. My friend and I wanted a camera that could capture some of our spontaneous adventures in Hawaii. I was stoked at how small the HD Hero was and how little it weighed. I was used to carrying around a bulky slr, and this thing was nonexistent in comparison. Its not fun carrying around an slr when it starts raining, or you have to venture upstream on slick rocks. The HDHero is ideal for all these hazardous treks.
For the video, the GoPro was rigged up to a 2 ft. mono-pole. Capturing the rainforest was easier with the HD Hero, because it was possible to take it through streams, up banyan trees, and through brush. I noticed the quality of video goes down in low light, and in the water as well.
Snorkeling and diving with the HD Hero was incredibly easy. Even with the mono-pole, it was barely there. Taking it through the arches was insanely fun. The point of view was so cool, and it is only possible with a something as small and light as the HD Hero. Having the mono-pole is also convenient, we just jammed it in the sand to record the rock running clips.
We are planning to keep on working with the GoPro Hero, and hopefully come out with some sicker flicks.
