You know for sure that you are going to get some awesome looking recordings with the GoPro HD Hero2 camera, where it will be twice as powerful as its predecessor (which rolled out in 2009), being capable of shooting 16:9 videos in Full HD glory (that’s 1080p for you!) in narrow (90-degree), wide (170-degree) and medium (127-degree) angles. Video is not everything, as sometimes it is also better to express a situation or emotion with stills, and the GoPro HD Hero2 camera is more than up to the task as well, being able to snap up to ten 11 megapixel photos each second. Yes, you read that right.
Connectivity options on the GoPro HD Hero2 camera include a mini-HDMI port, composite out, USB, and the ability to perform live broadcasting as well as camera control using a Wi-Fi connection – now how cool is that? All your memories will be stashed away on an SD memory card, and a language based menu certainly makes things run a whole lot smoother and easier even for newbies.
There are three configurations to choose from, where all of them cost $299.99 a pop – outdoor, motorsports, and surf editions. For those who do not need to get the latest and greatest, the release of the GoPro HD Hero2 camera means its predecessors, the original HD Hero will retail for $200 now. [Press Release]
