Inexpensive. Rugged construction. Good quality video. Compact. Waterproof to 197 feet.
Limited battery life. Archaic control system. Fixed focal length lens. No GPS.
The GoPro HD Hero2 is a rugged HD video camera that can take a beating and go deep underwater. It includes a number of different mounting tools so that you can affix it to a helmet, skateboard, or anything else you can imagine.

the gopro hero 2 is an excellent video camera for your outdoor adventures, use a head strap or a pole and ur set. it has a very good video and photo quality. Compare to other camcorder the hero 2 is easy to use, light, and waterproof for example which make it a great choice.
Filming is my life and job and I do it for living. GoPro HD HERO2 was purchased to accomplish the need for small camera with the wide variety of features to be used in places where normal cameras and dslrs cannot be used.
It is a brilliant shooting device and if Pro Tune firmware with extended bitrate be released this summer, it will become even more versatile tool for the filmmakers.
This camera is really on top due to its' good white balancing and low light capabilities. (But nevertheless this camera requires well exposed scene to get better picture)
Bang for Buck this is a great little camcorder, I bought mine for surfing and diving. While the fish eye lens is good for board mounted footage while surfing, you may need to get a flat lens to take photos of friends, the fish eye can make objects appear further away. There are a few good lens' out there. I bought an external flat lens corrector for mine which attaches over the fish eye, objects still seem too far away. I have ordered a red lens filter which will take the place of the fish eye, this will give me back the correct perspective and also bring the colour back at depth. The internal filters are around $10AU and Gopro have just released an external flat lens for around $50AU. The Gopro external flat lens looks the goods as it is square, mine is round and it slighty cuts the corners off the photo. the sound quality blew me away while diving you can hear everything.
This camcorder is nothing short of amazing. Quality is ridiculously good. Full HD at wide angle. I have taken crystal clear still frames from video. Mounts are solid and secure on surfboards.
Very much liking the upgrade from the gopro 1. 11Mp shots. More frames/sec. For something so small, it can shoot broadcast quality video.
Dislikes: Has tendency to fog up if used for prolonged time under water. Using one-touch mode eliminates this.
