Pros: Sensible price, lots of accessories available, rugged, beautiful images in good light
Cons: Screen is optional extra, waterproof housing can be a faff, not well suited to normal video camera activity

Pros: Good quality build; fine image quality; convenient size; reasonable price
Cons: Auto-everything can produce funky exposure; clunky menu system; no LCD
Conclusion: Sportler, die ihre Aktivitäten auf Fotos oder Videos festhalten möchten, werden die GoPro HD Hero lieben. Die Kamera ermöglicht beeindruckende Aufnahmen aus der Egoperspektive und ist in ihrem Gehäuse optimal vor Beschädigungen geschützt.
