hd hero

GoPro has updated the HD HERO camera to bring you the HD HERO 960, where it will feature a similar professional image and sound quality that is found in the original HD HERO. Available for $179.99 a pop, it will definitely bring a new dimension to your video recording especially if you’re an adrenaline junkie. It was specially designed to be attached to your body, head, helmet and favorite gear, where it will also sport a wide array of mounting accessories that range from chest harnesses to head straps, as well as pole mounts to surfboard mounts, making it a snap to capture incredible footage which can normally be found only in professional productions. Of course, all of that is marketing speak – how the final “movie’” turns out really dependson your expertise with it, so we would suggest doing a whole lot of experimentation with the device to maximize its potential. Resolution of the HD HERO 960 is limited to 960p (1280 x 960) and 720p (1280 x 720) at 30 frames per second, while those who opt for a lower resolution will be able to get WVGA (848 x 480) at 60 frames per second. Not only that, the HERO BUS expansion port has been removed, which means it will lose the capability of having LCD, secondary battery and additional expansion BacPacs to be attached. Best to call your insurance agent and make sure your policy has you well covered before you go nuts with the GoPro HD HERO 960. [Press Release]
