The editors liked

  • Great image and audio quality
  • Wide lens captures all the action
  • Waterproof case is included
  • Ugly camera
  • Pretty pictures. Shoots fantastic HD video at breakneck speed. Ships with enough mounts to start a very tiny Canadian police force. So small and lightweight we initially mistook it for a Sarah Palin speech. Includes both waterproof and standard housing. Exceptionally rugged — we tried to get all Jason Voorhees on its ass and the thing would not die.
  • Good quality build
  • Fine image quality
  • Convenient size
  • Reasonable price

The editors didn't like

  • Flimsy
  • Unreliable mounts
  • Difficult to use with gloves on
  • Confusing menu
  • No viewfinder or display for setting up or verifying shots. No shooting indicator light. Fisheye effect on photos gets old faster than leftover tuna salad.
  • Auto-everything can produce funky exposure
  • Clunky menu system
  • No LCD

  • While the GoPro HD HERO may not be a brand new video camera, we here at Steve's finally got our hands on one. By far, the GoPro HERO is the most popular HD video camera used by athletes, racers, and other adventurous folks. This extremely compact unit ...

  • The HD Hero is for people willing to invest a little extra time to get shots that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive, or risky, to film. It’s for sports enthusiasts whose hobby includes not just the activity itself, but sitting afterward at a ...

  • Abstract:  by Steve Douglas I probably wouldn't have believed it if I had not seen it for myself. I know there are many pint sized cams on the market but this one really surprised me. I was on a shoot in N.Carolina a few weeks ago filming the sand tiger shark...

  • Great image and audio quality, Wide lens captures all the action, Waterproof case is included
  • Flimsy, unreliable mounts, Difficult to use with gloves on, Confusing menu
  • The GoPro HD Hero is an absolutely massive step forward from the old model in terms of visual and audio fidelity. There's simply no comparing the footage you'll get from one of these to the footage from the originals and, since the design has stayed more ...

  • Stunning picture quality, Flexible, Really useful accessory options, Long battery life
  • Cost of cool accessories soon adds up, Sound isn't perfect, Poor lowlight performance
  • The GoPro HD Helmet Hero is a 1080p camcorder that attaches to your helmet, and can also attach to your car, surfboard, bike and so on. Its excellent image quality means it's the device to buy if you want to document your extreme-sports shenanigans....

  • In the UK, the $270 price of GoPro Surf HD Hero doesn't translate too well, being nearer to £285, so you need to be sure you're going to really use this camera, likewise with the£300 Helmet . For surfers, skiers, wake and snowboarders, the HD Surf Her...
