HD Helmet HERO

GoPro's HD Helmet HERO is the world?s highest performance wearable 1080p HD video and still photo camera. Professional quality 1080p / 960p / 720p HD resolutions record at 30 and 60 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). Record up to 2.5 hours on a single charge and up to 9 hours total on a 32GB SD card (not included).

The camera can also shoot automatic 5MP photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second intervals during your activity, hands free. Press the shutter button once at the start of your activity and record up to 2.5 hours of poster-print quality photos of you and your friends, living it up.

Included are mounts for attaching the camera to three helmets and two pieces of gear or vehicles, as well as a head strap allowing you to wear the camera like a headlamp. You can also pull this strap over helmets for easy camera sharing between friends. One of the above mentioned helmet mounts is a lace-through strap-mount designed for vented helmets.

The HD Helmet HERO is compatible with all other GoPro HERO camera mounting accessories, so it's very easy to expand the functionality of your camera to also suction cup to vehicles, clamp to bike handlebars and seat posts, mount to surfboards, and even be worn on the wrist or chest.

Waterproof to 180' / 60m and protected from rocks and other hazards thanks to its removable polycarbonate housing. Replacement housings and lens kits are available, making repairs or refurbishing your HD HERO camera affordable and convenient. It's a GoPro...go for it.

Review submitted for GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera (GPCHDHH001)
Pros: Recording Time, Extreme Durability, Superior Audio, Auto Photo Mode, HD Video Quality, Image Stability, Waterproof Depth, Great Unit Accessories, Mounting Options
Cons: Poor Instructions
Other Comments: My son and I ride motorcycles and ATV's off road and after seeing videos taken with the GoPro helmet cams I decided to buy one to record our adventures. I also take care of the website for our local off road park, Rocky Glen OHV Park, Rockford, IL, and will use it to make videos of the park for the website. The unit & accessories are great but the instructions could be better.

4 out of 5 stars   Great wearable camera!
By Mike on May 08, 2011
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera (GPCHDHH001)
Pros: Easy to use, Durable, Wearable, High quality video
Cons: Skeleton sold separately, Poor sound quality
Other Comments: The GoPro is awesome. Great Video quality with selectable output resolutions and frame rates. Each resolution changes the angle of view which is an advantage. Tons of add-ons and mounts available. The limitations of this camera are your own creativity. I purchased this camera for mountain bike riding but recently took it to my daughters field trip to a farm. It was fun letting chickens and the rooster come up and peck the camera, the footage was great. The sound is fairly weak and there is no audio in. The skeleton mount is sold separately and it would be a very handy thing to have right out of the box.

4 out of 5 stars   Great fun-cam
By JB on April 02, 2011
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera (GPCHDHH001)
Pros: HD resolutions 720p-1080p, Time lapse photos, 60fps in 720p mode, Very Versatile
Cons: Overexposure snow-sun
Other Comments: Great buy, at 25% off ([$] instead of [$]).Only notable downside, the videos get sometimes/often overexposed when filming snow action in the sun.Also, the 4/3 resolution r4 isn't supported by any video software when it comes to render your project. You will have to render in a 16/9 AVCHD setting.[...]

4 out of 5 stars   Impressive little video camera
By Fancy Fred on February 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera (GPCHDHH001)
Pros: High quality video, Actually works
Cons: Wide angle distortion, Must read the manual
Other Comments: After buying and returning 2 other "waterproof" "1080p" cameras that I returned after finding them very disappointing, I bought the GoPro Hero HD. I am very much impressed that this camera actually does what it is supposed to, and the video that it captures is as close to flawless as I could have ever hoped. I am very happy with this camera.

5 out of 5 stars   Are you kidding me? Best Ever
By snowman on February 09, 2011
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera (GPCHDHH001)
Pros: Best video quality
Cons: Really
Other Comments: Great for family video and action shots in the BC. Be ready though to change out your desktop to a computer that can handle the 1080p file size and editing equipment. Might want to invest in a 1080p top of the line TV as well. While your at it buy a new Blue-Ray burner for your computer. This is getting pricey.

5 out of 5 stars   Save some cash and be happy
By moonfire711 on January 03, 2011
Review submitted for GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera (GPCHDHH001)
Pros: Shockproof, Weight, Color, Picture, Waterproof
Cons: Sound, Low light, No zoom
Other Comments: Put in promo code "gopro25" and get 25% off at buydig.com. I would recommend getting the motorsports hero and buying the head strap separate for $15 as you will get more bang for your buck that way. Camera is well worth the money and can be used in so many ways.

4 out of 5 stars   awesome video camera!
By jmoon on December 24, 2010
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for GoPro HD Helmet HERO Camera (GPCHDHH001)
Pros: HD is awesome, Many different modes
Cons: Difficult to see if on, Mount isnt that strong
Other Comments: The HDHero is a great video camera!! Super clear shooting, and really convenient. However, there are some cons to this product.. Its really difficult to tell if you are recording or if the camera is on.. Usually, i have to ask a friend thats next to me to tell me if the light is blinking. I hope they make an option to make the beeping noise louder, because its really hard to hear it when you have a helmet on. Secondly, my mount for my helmet fell off on the first day.. It is possible that its because my helmet is matte, but im going to try sanding down a square, and mount it again. Other than that, this camera is awesome. I think its far better than the contour or other competitors. Battery life is great, and id recommend buying a 32 gig card. i ran out of memory before running out of batteries with my 16 gig. Great great product. Just wish beep was louder, and they had better mounts! :)

Cons:
Other Comments: Havent actually tested this product out on the slopes yet, but ive had it on my head. Feels fairly comfortable, and the sound quality is pretty decent! This helmet is probably the best deal for an audio helmet out there. Looks awesome too.. (I have the white one) Very excited to take this out on the slopes!
