GoPro Hero 2 : vue d'ensemble

Ever dropped your Iphone 4 in the water while you struggled to get your fly out of a river monster’s grill, all while letting it escape your butterfingers? I have! Well the guys over at GOPRO now have an answer for us multitasking inept, with the release of the second coming of their popular HERO line.

The HERO 2 offers a sharper lens and improved low light capability compared to the original HERO, the ability to shoot 11 megapixel stills at speeds up to 10 fps, your choice of wide (170º), medium (127º), or narrow (90º) field of view when shooting 1080p video, the ability to capture WVGA video at 120 fps or 720p video at 60 fps. It also comes with a rugged waterproof housing unit that ensures you wont miss capturing that fish of a lifetime on video, but that would require you to actually land it first.
