Summary: As you have seen from hundreds of "ThatWebsites" Hero2 videos, by now you know the quality of both the picture and sound. There are many more video and camera options than anticipated so this is a nice value to a compact camera. This model I purchased was a used version and included both the "Wi-Fi BackPack and Remote", both which I would highly recommend as you can add an app to your phone developed by GoPro to wirelessly connect to your camera and control what seems to...
Summary: Pictures and video are great for outdoors or sunny days. Expect low quality for night / foggy days. The camera is really simple, but the size is excellent, really fits in your hand. The motorsports suction cup is great to attach to smooth metalic surfaces, I used it on my motorcycle, and it didn't fell off, plus the video was great. For the price is a good buy.
Pros: It has good video when you put it on the highest setting, it seems fairly durable so far, and the interface is easy once you get the hang of it, but it took a while to figure it out for the first time.
Cons: Quality is awful in low light conditions, the battery life on video is bad but in order to charge it while in the case you have to buy an all new 40 dollar skeleton case, after you've already spent 300 dollars on the camera and 30 on the memory card.
Buy 2, that way you can shoot action movies in 3D.

Summary: The GoPro Hero2 is an excellent value for the money. The pros are that the rolling shutter and moire have been greatly reduced from the original. The cons are that the camera does not have any type of mount attached to it and must be put inside the plastic case to mount it to anything. Once in the case, you can't access the ports on the sides of the camera. The Hero2 also does not have any display as delivered. You can purchase the LCD Backpack, but it is not included.
Summary: I bought this camera to record video and take video's while riding on the motorbike, water-sports (diving and sailing) Pro's: good HD quality, small, light, comes with waterproof casing up to 60 meters deep for diving, easy menu, all connections necessary for whatever use, different quality settings for taking photo's or recording video, all the accessories that you get and that you can get.
