GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsport Edition

Product Description

Everybody's Favorite Action Camera Just Got Better
Gopro cameras have always been the the favorite camera of motorsport pros from drift racers to motocross riders. The GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsports edition now brings even better performance with many in demand improvements. All the extra engineering is housed in a case of the same dimensions as previous HD Heros so it is compatible with all existing mounts and accessories.

Improved Sensor and Lens

Gopro Lens

The new fast f2.4 lens is now twice as sharp, capturing even better professional wide angle 170 degree 1080p video and still photos at up to 10 frames per second. That is faster than a pro DSLR! Image processing has been improved with double the performance of previous HEROs to handle the better sensor images. Of course you still get multiple frame rates from 30fps up to 120fps for super smooth slow motion. Whether your goal is to capture footage of a spirited rip through backcountry roads or you want to capture and study lapping footage to learn how to set a new track record, the HD HERO2: Motorsports Edition can handle it all with impressive results.

Field of view

Wide Angle of View

Capture the action you need in multiple fields of view. The GoPro HD HERO 2 offers a full 170°, 127° or 90° shooting in 1080p and 720p video. Select the optimal field of view for your activity: 170° to capture the widest point of view, making sure you get everything in the shot; 127° for shots that are still wide, but not so wide that you get a fisheye effect; and 90° for those close in shots where you don't need a huge field of view.

Much Improved LCD Interface

Revamped user interface

The original GoPro HD HERO was a great camera but the menu system was very difficult to understand with all the abbreviations and codes! The new easy to use LCD interface is in plain English so it much easier to read and understand the settings. The case size remains the same but now has LED lights on all sides so you can always tell when the camera is running.

Expansion ports

HDMI Out and Pro-Audio Capable

The mini HDMI port allows you to plug the camera right into a high res display for instant review and playback directly from the camera without the need for transferring files or cumbersome burning to DVD for HDTV viewing.

Get better sound than ever. Choose your own professional microphone if you wish. The GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsport Edition comes with a 3.5mm stereo mic input so you can plug any third party mic into the HERO2 Motorsport.

Wireless Control For Total Freedom

Wifi remote

Many users have asked for wireless control and GoPro comes through in the HERO 2 Motorsport Edition. With the introduction of the Wi Fi BacPac for the HERO2 (sold separately), you can take motorsport videography to a whole new level. With the GoPro Wifi BacPac you can wirelessly control up to 50 GoPro cameras. The Wifi BacPac lets you control, preview and playback video and photos via the WiFi Remote, your smartphone, tablet or laptop using the free GoPro App!

The HD HERO2: Outdoor Edition is compatible with all GoPro expansion accessories and BacPacs™, including the Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote.
