You may have noticed that many of the posts on this blog contain images and videos captured by my trusty GoPro HD camera. It’s a wonderful bit of kit and has never let me down, GoPro are often pushing out software (they call it firmware) updates and all sorts of mounts and LCD screens to ensure your camera is future proof.

This month, GoPro released the HD2. It’s basically the same unit, it uses all the same mounts and housings as before, but it shoots 11 megapixal images instead of the old 5, you can set the lens to 170degree wide angle or 120degree not so wide angle, it takes photos every 0.5 seconds in time-lapse mode and now shoots HD video at 1920×1080 pixels. It is basically bloody brilliant.

Here’s a quick vid I shot today in poor light. On the control bar at the bottom of the video, make sure you click the 360p button and set it to 1080p, then you’ll see the full HD power of this little camera. Ignore the surfing, I’m about a bus length in front of where I ought to be 😀 Plenty more shots and videos from this cracking camera coming this winter, can’t wait.
