Review: GoPro Motorsports HD Hero
The good: 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.
The bad: 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.
The bottom line: 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.
