"Hot Buy"

"Rivals, step down: the GoPro offers extra detail, more accurate colours and better exposure than others, while its super-wide 170 degree field-of-view makes getting those cinematic wide shots a snip. In other words: awesome."

In TechRadar's opinion, the Hero2 Outdoor Edition is the perfect companion for your outdoor antics thanks to its sturdy case, interchangeable rear doors which provide it with additional functions and features, and versatile mounting options. Although it lacks manual exposure controls, it's usually accurate and fast to react to light changes, and the quality of its footage is excellent.

"very good" (5 out of 6 stars)

Value for money: "good" (4 out of 6 stars), "Recommended"

Being a bit on the heavy side, GoPro's HD Hero2 isn't great for side mounting, and you'll need a large storage card for recording long clips, but nonetheless, PC Pro say it's the ultimate camera for capturing outdoor action. Offering versatility, a waterproof, shockproof case, and great-quality footage, it's a fantastic option.

"Hot Product"

Unchanged in many ways from its former model, this little camcorder's picture quality is still unmatched. Its perfect for action shots and fun to use as well as being solidly built. The HD Hero2 can be used for shooting homemade movies or more professional applications. Whether filming outside or just in need of another option where a typical camera won't work.
