The GoPro HD Motorsports Hero camcorder is a great camera for recording motorsports that is waterproof and can be used in lots of places. The price is good considering how small the camera is and all the functions it offers.
Pros: Great video quality, Lots of mount options, Priced well at $299
Summary: The GoPro HD Hero captures crisp HD video and offers users a great deal of flexibility of resolution and mounting options. However, some users may find it to be too complex for its two-button interface and tiny screen.
Pros: The GoPro HD Hero Motorsports captures video in a variety of resolutions and frame rates up to and including 1080i full HD, as well as still photos. The Hero has a large selection of mounting options and replacement parts. The polycarbonate shell is submersible, shockproof, and--if it takes too bad of a beating--replaceable.
Cons: The lack of a viewfinder makes precise aiming difficult. The tiny LCD display and a cryptic menu is difficult to navigate without first consulting the manual. Low-light performance still leaves much to be desired.
Conclusion: I think GoPro's execution of the Motorsports HERO Wide is fantastic. I love everything about it and cannot say anything overly negative about it that would give me any reason not to recommend it. Without a doubt, the GoPro Motorsports HERO Wide is a must have.
GoPro Motorsports SD Hero Wide On-Board Camera Review
19 January 2010
Excerpt: When it comes to extreme sports part of the fun isn’t just being in the middle of the action but capturing the excitement of the experience for others to share. Plus looking cool doing it doesn’t hurt either. One thing about sports cameras is that many of them are without a decent water-resistant and shock-proof housing. With GoPro’s Motorsports HERO Wide (sent for review by MotorcycleToyStore.com ) comes standard with one. Nice touch.
Pros: Lots of included mounts, Included water-proof/shock-proof housing, Many recording options, LCD screen, Small in size, Wide angle lens
Cons: SD card not included, No rechargeable battery
