Praised by consumers and professional athletes alike, the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera was developed to be used for capturing footage on motorcycles, in cars, or on most other types of vehicles. Shooting up to 1080p full HD video, the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera is one of the most popular action sports cameras on the market.
The GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera offers a wealth of features including 3 different HD resolutions, two different lens angles, and 5 megapixel still picture capture. The included Lithium-Ion battery lasts 2.5 hours, and can be charged through a USB port. Videos and images are stored on an SD card, with capacities of up to 32GB supported.
Capable of three different HD resolutions (720p, 960p, and 1080p), the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera also shoots video at 60 frames per second in 720p and 960p mode. The 170 degree wide angle lens becomes a slightly less wide 127 degrees in 1080p mode, essentially making for two lenses in one camera, depending on the resolution.
The video the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera captures is crisp and clear, looking great on even the largest screens. The colors are vivid and realistic, something sports cameras will often lack. Built in image stability prevents shakiness and wobbling, essential in a camera of this type. The GoPro HD also takes 5 megapixel pictures, and can be set to take them at intervals adjustable from 2 to 60 seconds.
The GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera records professional quality sound, arguably the best sound quality of any action sports camera on the market. The included Automatic Gain Control is tuned specifically for action sports and motorsports, making for truly immersive videos. For further sound sensitivity, an optional non-waterproof back door is available for those who want more sound at the cost of slightly less durability.
The GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera is enclosed in a waterproof, shockproof polycarbonate housing, allowing the camera to be used in the roughest conditions. It is resistant to water, snow, rocks, dirt, mud, and almost anything else you can throw at it. Waterproof to 180 feet, you’d have to be seriously trying to damage this camera with water.
An expansion port on the back of the camera allows you to attach optional “Bakpacs” to the camera, such as a click-on LCD screen and secondary battery that doubles battery life.
With its focus on quality construction and advanced features, the GoPro HD Motorsports HERO Camera is worth a look from anyone who enjoys motorsports or other action sports and wants to capture that experience to share with others.
