it's an investment on memories -- whether by land, sea, or air...have fun.
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 be 100% of the settings. This is also a great bonus because now you have in your hand a personal monitor to make sure the camera is "centered" to your preference. The video downloads and erases a little slowly, but it's nothing to even worry about, but just wanted to mention, as I know some "of us" can be critical. The battery on both the Wi-Fi unit and Hero2 is comparable and "reasonable" when you use and fill a 32G memory card. So as far as bang for the buck goes you really can't go wrong with this 2-version.Read full review

Awesome Camera I'm blown away
I'm getting started in "First Person View" model aircraft flying and bought this camera to mount on my aircraft, so far I have mounted it on a quad copter and have taken stills and video.
This camera is awesome the picture quality just blew me away, once you have read through the instructions it is fairly easy to use the menus via the tiny LCD screen. The range of functions are great, the range of mounting hardware has allowed me to mount the camera easily on my aircraft. The bundled software seems reasonable for editing video, again you need to read through the instructions (its a bloke thing we hate reading instructions) as I found myself getting frustrated that I couldn't get the program to do what I wanted but I was missing one step in the process.
I would like a larger screen to view and use the menus but as I mentioned it does the job.
I don't have anything to compare against this camera but I think you would be hard pressed to find a better camera for the price.Read full review

Best for extreme sports and conditions
The GoPro Hero2 is the best option for capturing the action in extreme conditions. Has everything you need to start shooting right out the box. The video and photo quality is very high, it is very easy to use for the intended main purpose (capturing video and photos in extreme sports or conditions) but don´t expect to use like a regular point and shoot camera, first of all, It doesn´t have a screen or view finder, so you must first make an idea of the POV in order to set the camera in the right angle and position you want to shoot. You can buy an additional display sold separately but I think that´s not the main purpose of the camera. It´s very nice at touch and small enough to set in several conditions. Feels robust and durable, that´s very important because that´s the main purpose, so you can be confident that it will resist a very harsh treatment.Read full review

GoPro HD Hero2 gets my vote.
I purchased this to replace a cheap video camera I bought several years ago. Glad I did it. Price was good, features are great and accessories are still pouring out. Video options are a nice feature so you can enhance your end results better. Sound was pretty good using the skeleton backing on the Indy MotoGP track. My ONLY 2 draw backs thus far is; 1: the lack of options on buying extra thumb screws. You need to purchase the grab bag kit which has extras mounts and thumb screws. Otherwise, your held hostage to $7.99 for a single thumb screw from other aftermarket vendors. 2: not a true draw back since there are options but you need to be pretty accurate on your line of sight, as you cannot look at a display screen to see where your shooting tour camera at. ( there is a video back for this feature, but it isn't free ) I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys activities and wants to document them with a camera that fits in the palm of your hand, goes anywhere and has an impressive array of options.Read full review

excellent camera for outdoor use
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.
Con's: short battery life, small buttons (bit of a pain when you use the waterproof casing.
Overall: wicked camera! great for outdoor use!!! highly recommended for those who are very active!
Suggestions: bigger and better pressing buttons and if possible a LCD screen already attached to the camera and a battery that lasts a bit longer, especially for video if possible.
