Review: GoPro Hero HD Motorsports Camera

Box shot – the GoPro Hero in it’s protective case.

I was lucky enough to be able to borrow a GoPro HD camera last week and I’ve just spent a few days trying it out around Sydney. Included in this rigorous testing regime was a full-day ride with a bunch of mates in some glorious weather north of Sydney. But more on that, and the footage I captured, in another post.

First things first. The GoPro Hero HD is a tiny 5-megapixel miniature point-of-view video and stills camera that mounts to your bike and takes wide-angle HD quality movies and pictures while you ride. Included in the kit is the camera itself, a battery, a waterproof plastic case, leads, and a whole bunch of mounting options centred around a GPS-on-your-car’s-windscreen-style suction cup.
