HD Surf HERO

GoPro's HD Surf HERO is the world's only 1080p HD on-board video and still photo camera. Professional quality 1080p / 960p / 720p HD resolutions record at 30 and 60 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). Easily mounts to any surfboard in seconds. So light, even top pros claim they don't notice the camera on their boards.

The HD Surf HERO can also shoot 5MP photos automatically every 2 seconds while you surf. With the simple press of the shutter button on the paddle out you can capture photos during your entire surf. Other photo modes include 5 / 10 / 30 / and 60 second time lapse as well as single shot, triple shot, and self timer modes.

The batteries last for over 2.5 hours of HD video or automatic photo taking, so you can document your entire surf with a single push of the shutter button on the paddle out.

The included adhesive base mounts in seconds and is proven in heavy surf from Hawaii to Tahiti, Southern Mexico to Northern California. Or you can install an FCS fin plug into the deck of your board and then use our patent pending camera mounting plug to allen key your HD Surf HERO into the FCS plug.

Lighten your load on your next trip and use the HD Surf HERO for your non-surf related photos and videos, too. Optional accessories make it easy to mount the camera on your wrist, bike, scooter, jet ski or helmet. Tow surfing? A chest harness is available for that, too.

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.

4 out of 5 stars   Love love love it!
By QT3.14 (Seattle, WA) October 25, 2010
Review submitted for GoPro HD Surf HERO Camera (GPCHDSH001)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: No preview, No viewfinder
Other Comments: I had a canon D10 point and shoot for underwater photos, but it's video quality was questionable. I saw a friend's footage of the GoPro HD (he took it skateboarding) and loved the clarity and wide angle. My sister in law also has one that she's taken shark diving with, and she has videos of the sharks biting the camera - its cool! Played with it surfing - it held up well during wipeouts, submerges without any noticeable leaking - will be taking it diving next week.Things that are not good - no zoom or macro, no viewfinder or playback, no light source.[@] (sample video)

5 out of 5 stars   AWESOME!!!
By Bill (San Diego) October 21, 2010
Review submitted for GoPro HD Surf HERO Camera (GPCHDSH001)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small, Versatile, Great Video, Tough, Efficient, Inexpensive, Lightweight
Cons: Confusing Settings, Sound
Other Comments: The only issue that I've had is getting used to the settings menu. In order save weight, the camera only has the very very simple lcd screen on the front of the camera and only two buttons, so anytime you want to change anything you need to have the instructions with you to decode the menu. Other than that I've had a great time messing around with the camera. Definitely better for close up shots with the fisheye. Love the HD. Sound leaves a bit to be desired but it's sitting in a waterproof case so not much you can do about that. If in the end you're looking for a miracle then you might be a bit disappointed but this little camera doesn't fall too short. The picture is just as good if not better than a lot of way more expensive sports cameras out there. Here's a video I shot and edited the first weekend I got the camera.
