The housing now also features a mini-HDMI port, a 3.5mm stereo external microphone port and multiple LED lights on all sides to show if the camera is operating. The new menu screen is much clearer and more user friendly for easy operation and the HD2 is compatible with the current GoPro accessory range.
The HD2 will also support the use of HDXC cards and can can take any HDXC with a capacity of up to half a terrabyte.
Upgraded Professional Photo Quality and Features
The HD HERO2’s photo capture performance has also been significantly upgraded. In addition to much improved low light performance, the HD HERO2 can capture up to ten 11 megapixel photos in a ten second burst mode, as well as automatic time-lapse photos with quick .5 second timing between photos. This dramatically increases the success-rate when attempting to capture maga-zine cover quality photos during fast action sports and activities.
Simplified User Interface
GoPro also placed a priority on redesigning the HD HERO2’s user interface for dead simple ease-of-use. The HD HERO2 features a totally new, straightforward language-based user interface that eliminates the need for instructions.
"The HD HERO2 is much, much easier to use than the original HD HERO. If you know how to use a traditional camera, you can use the HD HERO2 straight out of the box without instructions. This makes the HD HERO2 very powerful as an everyday, easy-to-use consumer camera, whist retaining all of the features, modes and performance that has made GoPro the best-selling small form factor HD camera to Hollywood,” said GoPro’s Director of Product Definition, Rudy Samuels.
About Helmet Cameras
Helmet or handlebar cameras allow you to capture film footage whilst maintaining full control of the bike, they fit via straps around the vents in your helmet or around you handlebars, or capture those behind you by fitting it to your seat post. They are extremely simple to use with storage via a SD card, you can then copy the footage onto your pc, edit and burn to disk to keep and share. At Wiggle we often take out the staff cam and host the footage on the wiggle blog, known as the bloggle, you can view this on the staff cam footage page

Magazine reviews for GoPro HD Hero 2 1080p Camera with Outdoor Mount
Review from Bikeradar
Despite its slightly clunky appearance and chunky size, the GoPro has become king of the point of view (POV) cameras for mountain bikers. Its robust casing and superb selection of mounting options â€" on body and bike â€" are ideal for MTB.
This is the latest unit from GoPro and features a better lens plus a more user-friendly menu with more, improved settings. And that's all in the same size unit, making it compatible with all current mounts.
The new lens is twice as sharp and better in lower light levels. We were really impressed with it in dappled light, where other cameras often struggle.
Where the HD Hero captures 5MP still images, the HD Hero 2 has 11, 8 and 5MP options and shoots in both wide and medium formats. Results are great thanks to the impressive processor. It also now shoots 10 images per second â€" instead of three â€" and creates surprisingly sharp action shots.
Video resolution has a few more options, although they differ slightly between the US NSTC and UK PAL settings. Depending on the resolution picked, the PAL setting tends to offer fewer frames per minute than NSTC.
There are several new options in the various resolution settings, including wide, medium and narrow formats in the full 1,920x1,080 pixel setting. There's also a new 48 frames per second setting in 1,280x9,60 pixel resolution, making for smoother footage and better slow motion.
In the smaller WVGA (848x480) setting, there's an impressive 120fps option, although it's only really suitable for web videos because it lacks detail and vibrancy.
Externally, although the unit is the same size, it does have a few new features â€" the lens itself is brand new, there are progress lights on all four faces to make it easier to monitor recording status, the menu is far easier to navigate now and there are new inputs.
Next to the SD card slot is a mini HDMI port. This means you can see the true HD footage on your HD TV, rather than having to go through the regular analogue output. There's a new Mic input too, although you need to get the new HD Skeleton Housing too or it's a case of using the unit without protective casing.
Image quality is definitely clearer, and the camera deals with low-to-high light contrasts well, but the thing we really like is how much more user-friendly the Go Pro 2 is.
Update offers clearer images with a much better user interface
