GoPro’s HD Helmet Hero is the world’s highest performance wearable 1080p HD video and still photo camera. Professional quality 1080p / 960p / 720p HD resolutions record at 30 and 60 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). Record up to 2.5 hours on a single charge and up to 9 hours total on a 32GB SD card (not included).
The camera can also shoot automatic 5MP photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second intervals during your activity, hands free. Press the shutter button once at the start of your activity and record up to 2.5 hours of poster-print quality photos of you and your friends, living it up. Included are mounts for attaching the camera to three helmets and two pieces of gear or vehicles, as well as a head strap allowing you to wear the camera like a headlamp. You can also pull this strap over helmets for easy camera sharing between friends. One of the above mentioned helmet mounts is a lace-through strap-mount designed for vented helmets. The HD Helmet Hero is compatible with all other GoPro Hero camera mounting accessories, so it's very easy to expand the functionality of your camera to also suction cup to vehicles, clamp to bike handlebars and seat posts, mount to surfboards, and even be worn on the wrist or chest.

Be a HERO...GoPro, in HD. Developed for professional use, but at a consumer price, the HD HERO line of wearable cameras capture full HD video rivaling cameras costing 10x the price. How? Our team consists of some of the the brightest minds in Silicon Valley who also happen to be obsessed with outdoor sports, race cars, and all things moto. Athletic super geeks? Indeed.
Professional Quality, Full HD Video 1080p, 960p, and 720p in 30 and 60 fps (720p). The HD HERO line of cameras offers three different HD resolutions, giving you three filming modes to capture the best angles for any given activity: •1080p: 1920x1080 True HD featuring a 127º angle of view, 30 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio •960p: 1280x960 Ultra Wide and Tall HD featuring a 170º angle of view, 30 fps, and 4:3 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.
Audio Excellence We’ve invested more in the HD HERO camera's sound system than most companies spend on their entire camera development. You’ll only be hearing the sounds of your sport, not the howl of the wind. How? Obsessive audio engineering and an understanding that good sound is as important as good video. 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, Bombproof, Waterproof to 180’ / 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’ / 60m and tough enough to take a spin across the asphalt, GoPos are built to take a beating..
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous These little camera's are excellent. I was a bit dubious at first but have trialed it on various Lake District routes and weather conditions. The camera's a doddle to use and the video's produced are of a very high quality. It does however take a while to find the optimum filming angle and getting the helmet mount stable but apart from that the camera has exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous This cam is what you need. Great shots in bright conditions. When it gets dark the video gets a little too grainy, but simply awesome outdoors. I bought a 8GB SD card and it works great with the cam. Get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Had one since August (2010) love it, reliably waterproof (but its not under warranty in water so watch out) and very tough. Film and photo quality is excellent in good light, not great in low light situations tho. Ive had mine on my surf board, my bike, my helmet (cycling and quad riding) and ive dropped it about 20ft out of a tree onto hard ground, cant fault it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Hi.. I have "GoPro" and i'd like to write my feelings about one.
I'm very disappointed about optical parameters and quality of clips.
There is more than 0,5 mm movement between stand and clip... it is mean lot of vibration by itself... so were is extreme?
anyway it is light and handy but i was expect something else...
hope my mind will change after few wet spin...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Had the GoPro HD for 4 months now, used for dh/ freeride mountain biking and skiing and couldn't be happier with it!
The quality is un-believable for such a small cam! Full HD and 720p 60fps is simply excellent!
All the mounts you can think of to get creative with angles etc.
Honestly could not be happier with it!
The only 2 quirks I have with it are the many many SD cards that can't be used with it, which is one to look out for! they have to be over a 4 rated speed!
and it's expensive as hell.
Thats it :) well worth the money in my opinion though!
Be careful with the your card choice, thanks GoPro and CRC!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous So far I have captured a couple of videos and can say that it is coming out awesome. The only reason for the 4 star rating is the relatively big size and expensive price tag
