Product Description

Number One Among Motorsports Fans
GoPro HERO cameras have always been the number one choice of motorsport camera enthusiasts. With the new HD HERO2 Motorsport, action sports videographers now have an even more professional camera to play with. Improved low light sensor, faster lens, HDMI, sound port, 11mp digital stills at 10fps, improved language based LCD readout and many other improvements in the HD HERO2 Motorsports Edition cement GoPro's top position among POV camera buyers.

Better Sensor and Faster Lens

Gopro Lens

GoPro bumped up the HD HERO2's imaging sensor to be twice as powerful for even better video quality than the HD HERO. With a new faster f2.4 lens for double the sharpness and enhanced low light performance, you can capture super wide 170 degree field of view 1080p videos with enhanced brightness and clarity. With the new sensor comes faster photo multi frame shooting that is better than even dslr's at up to 10 frames per second. Choose from 30fps to 120fps for super smooth slow mo, it's your choice. Whether you want to capture footage of a wild run through backcountry roads or you want to record and study lapping footage to learn how to set a new track record, the HD HERO2: Motorsports Edition can produce exceptionally sharp and colorful results.

Field of view

Wide Angle of View

Capture the action you need in multiple fields of view. The GoPro HD HERO 2 offers a full 170°, 127° or 90° shooting in 1080p and 720p video. Select the optimal field of view for your activity: 170° to capture the widest point of view, making sure you get everything in the shot; 127° for shots that are still wide, but not so wide that you get a fisheye effect; and 90° for those close in shots where you don't need a huge field of view.

Intuitive, Easy To Use Interface

Revamped user interface

Unlike the interface on the original HD HERO, which was difficult to understand with its abbreviations and codes, the new LCD panel message are now language based with easy to read and understand words and settings, making camera setup a breeze. New LED lights on all sides of the camera let you know whether the camera is on at a glance.

Expansion ports

Extra Ports Means Extra Options

The GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsports comes with a mini HDMI port for connecting to external HD displays so you can quickly review your adventures without needing to transfer to a laptop or computer first. Good audio is a mark of a professional video so the HD HERO2 includes a mini 3.5mm audio port so you can attach your own professional microphones to the GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsport for optimal audio to match the video.

Backwards Compatible Even with all the improvements the GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsport Edition case is the same size as the older HD HERO. If you already own a HD HERO you can be sure all your old mounts and accessories will fit this new camera.

Wifi remote

With the new Wifi BacPac (sold separately), you will be able to record wirelessly from multiple camera setups with up to 50 GoPro HEROs! The Wi-Fi BacPac attaches to your HD HERO2 camera, making recording long range video by remote control via the Wi-Fi Remote, a smartphone, tablet, or computer running the free GoPro App possible.
