GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsports overview

  • 1Description

The GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camcorder records 1080p high definition video from your helmet, your vehicle, or anywhere else you mount it. The camera comes with 2 helmet mounts, 3 vehicle mounts, and a suction cup mount. Other optional mounts can be obtained for even more ways to record. The waterproof (up to 180 ft, 60m) polycarbonate housing also protects the camera from crashes and scratches.

Aside from shooting HD video, the HERO also captures 5MP digital stills. You can record at 2, 5, 10, 30, and 60 second intervals until the battery dies or the SD card fills up. The camera can also take single shots, triple shots, or be used with the self-timer. In addition, the built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts for up 2.5 hours on a single charge and features an integrated heating system for staying warm during cold weather activities.

Motorsports HD Recording
Mount the HD Motosports HERO to any helmet, motorcycle, ATV, car, plane, jet ski, boat, snowmobile or other vehicle using GoPro's specialized Motorsports package

  • 1080p: 1920x1080 True HD featuring a 127° angle of view, 30 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
  • 960p: 1280x960 Ultra Wide and Tall HD featuring a 170° angle of view, 30 fps, and 4:3 aspect ratio. See more of the action above and below than widescreen 16:9 resolutions can show
  • 720p: 1280x720 Ultra Wide HD featuring a 170° angle of view, both 30 and 60 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
5MP Photos, Automatically
HD HERO cameras can shoot hands-free, 5 megapixel photos automatically at 2 / 5 / 10 / 30 and 60 second intervals until the batteries die or the SD card is full (2.5 hours). Or set it to single shot, triple shot, or self timer for more traditional photo taking
HD HERO's Sound System
You'll only be hearing the sounds of your sport, not the howl of the wind with the HD HERO camera. The HD HERO uses 48kHz, AAC audio compression and a built-in mono microphone with AGC (Automatic Gain Control)
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion, Built in Battery Warmer
The rechargeable 1100mAh lithium-ion battery (included) lasts for 2.5 hours of constant recording. It can be recharged to 80% capacity in just 2 hours when plugged into a computer's USB port, or in 1 hour when plugged into a USB compatible wall or car charger. Camera can also be used while charging...handy on road trips where it's fun to leave the camera rolling. Camera also features an integrated battery heating system for keeping your battery warm in winter activities
Shockproof, Waterproof to 180 ft (60m)
Don't let a little water, or even a ton of water get in the way of getting the shot. Proven in heavy surf from Hawaii to Tahiti, Southern Mexico to Northern California, HD HERO cameras can handle it thanks their highly engineered polycarbonate exoskeletal housing. Waterproof to 180 ft (60m) and tough enough to take a spin across the asphalt, GoPos are built to take a beating. Replacement lens kits are also available, so there's little worry of scratching the tempered glass lens while going for glory. Trash the housing in a massive crash? Replacements are available
NTSC/PAL Switchable
Features a switchable NTSC/PAL output for watching recorded video directly from the camcorder on your NTSC or PAL analog television

    GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsports reviews

    HD Motorsports HERO Camcorder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 152.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent video from small camera GoPro HD delvers exactly what it promises - HD video of a superior quality from an extremely small device (in a waterproof - or water resistant enclosure, not sure which) that's easily installed on any vehicle with a small smooth non-porous surface. Cheap and easy to use SDHC memory devices. Only drawbacks - small sometimes difficult to use control buttons, especially with gloves on, a somewhat difficult to use menu interface and lack of a screen to review video. A small price to pay to get stunning personal perspective video from otherwise impossible angles. Optional headstrap and other mounting accessories makes this an incredibly versatile camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again The camera is simple, but easy to use. It has limited possibilites to do custom settings, no whitebalance, shutterspeed etc. Is has quite strong fisheye effect, but sharp video. Buttons are abit slow - takes about 1 second from pressing the shutter button until the picture is taken. It has no image stabilization, so you will need to use software to do this. It is not so good in low light, the best quality is outdoors at daytime. It has no live output port /nor LCD screen). It is supposed to be relased a software fix for live output. However, for this price, and with its limitations, this is a good camera and good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, yes, yes Its great, little, very versatile camera. I was expecting better picture quality but the shots taking with the HERO are having such a WOW effect that the picture quality goes second. There is simply no substitution for this small HD monster. It goes to places you I never thought before. Image stabilization is SUPERB. One big minus practically unusable in dark, but when its bride it does the job and does it very-very well. I wish it has a screen, even a small one, but with a wide lens guessing work is minimum, just point it to the right direction and press a button. And one more thing, If you want to capture the sound with it, not a good idea.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun - serious tool I ordered this camera to have a second unit action camera for my professional camera work: and it does a great job. I fixed it inside and outside of a car, at a 9ft-boom, under water and the result was amazing. Its wide angle lens shows unseen perspectives, the sound is usable (although not hi-fi). The operation is easy, as soon as it is set up once, there is nothing to do than activate the releaser. I use the 720/60p-resolution to have HD video with 60 frames per second. And it's really small and lightweight. I'm looking forward to useful accessories like a display (perhaps remote controlled). The price is very fair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Camera!!! This camera is Amazing!! I love how small it is and compact. I can put it in small spaces and record at great HD quality. It records at 60fps so I can slow down the video on my computer for great super slo mo. That being said, only draw backs I have are for it is that the camera doesn't do so well in low light. And when shooting underwater, the image isn't as clear as shooting above. But those are small flaws for the price of the camera and what you can do with it. Definite MUST for someone who loves shooting or recording sports or just wants to shoot in a new creative style.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Super FUN Camera! I love this camera! I really enjoy sticking it everywhere on my car and playing with all the possible angles that I can find. The Motorsport mount holds extremely well and remains very stable on the car body. The housing feels very good and tough! The camera is light in weight, so helmets and the like are looking very good too! Get WITH the LCD backpac screen! The options are hard to navigate on the little 4-digit read out. The abbreviations get somewhat out of hand... This is a camera to abuse and destroy for that killer video shot, consider that when buying! It's NOT a highly customizable beast, settings wise!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from does the job, better for underwater This camera is good for in car footage, but audio is poor. Lighting also must be good for good quality. After looking at the package contents, I also ordered the handlebar attachment/clamps. I used that to attach the camera to the end of a gaff on my fishing trip this weekend and shoved the gaff under water to get underwater footage of Ahi's as we pulled them into the boat. Also got picks of dolphins underwater following the boat. 5 stars for the underwater footage! Would be better if you could view your recording on the camera, itself, even if the screen is small.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little camera for the money I've been using the camera to make outdoor adventure videos. Mounted it on one of my cross-country skiis and got great footage. Outdoors in nature the quality of the video is excellent. Tried it in a theater for an onstage shot from a musician in a symphony orchestra and the white balance was off and had to be corrected and was getting smear from lighting sources. One drawback is that there is no viewfinder so you have to frame your shot by guessing where you want to aim. But the wide-angle lens gets a lot of coverage so most of the time you get a usable shot. The menu system takes a little getting used to but does the job. All in all it's a great little camera for the money.
