GoPro Motorsports HD Hero review: GoPro Motorsports HD Hero

 

GoPro Motorsports HD Hero

The GoPro HD Hero Motorsports captures video in a variety of resolutions and frame rates up to and including 1080i full HD, as well as still photos. The Hero has a large selection of mounting options and replacement parts. The polycarbonate shell is...

The lack of a viewfinder makes precise aiming difficult. The tiny LCD display and a cryptic menu is difficult to navigate without first consulting the manual. Low-light performance still leaves much to be desired.

The GoPro HD Hero captures crisp HD video and offers users a great deal of flexibility of resolution and mounting options. However, some users may find it to be too complex for its two-button interface and tiny screen.

Size; number of modes; accessories; image/footage quality

Noise in low-light conditions

Good photo/video quality, large number of mounting options and replacement parts, shockproof, waterproof

No viewfinder, tiny LCD display, two button interface menu, bad performance in low light conditions

GoPro Motorsports HD Hero has a great video and photograph quality. There are lots of mounting options and is shock proof and waterproof. Buy it if you don't mind the tiny screen and the two button interface.

First, you have a suction mount cup system that you can use for any car, truck, or van that has glass windows. Additionally it can be used on your vehicles side panel, the top of the car, sunroof and on any flat non-porous surface. This isn't your...

I think GoPro's execution of the Motorsports HERO Wide is fantastic. I love everything about it and cannot say anything overly negative about it that would give me any reason not to recommend it. Without a doubt, the GoPro Motorsports HERO Wide is a...
