The GoPro HD Helmet Hero is once again a rock-solid offering for those of you looking to easily capture your adventures from your own point of view. Its waterproof (up to 180 feet), shockproof hous- ing allows you to put this camera through serious hell. The mount- ing options cater to a variety of sports enthusiasts. Choose from three resolutions, each providing good picture quality: 1080p at 30fps, 960p at 30 fps, and 720p at 30/60fps. It charges quickly, and if you’re using it to capture ski runs, shut ‘er down every time you hit the lift and it’ll last all day on a single charge. The audio pickup is poor when the camera is inside the housing, but you won’t hear howling wind, which is nice. GoPro also released a viewfinder backing that’s compatible with the HD Hero so you can see your shots on the go.
