Advantages Ease of use, Image quality, Video quality, Number of mounting options
Disadvantages Sound quality, Price of add ons
From a visual point of view the GoPro HD Hero 2 is much the same as the previous model, however one addition to note is the extra red flashing lights which mean that you can now tell whether or not the camera is recording without staring at the screen at the beginning of your video. If you were to look at the screen you would immediately notice that the menus have had a complete redesign. Previously the screen displayed a series of numbers and symbols that without the help of the manual would mean nought, mercifully however GoPro appear to have listened to the critics and chosen to stick with plain english with the HD Hero 2.I myself have used this product when skiing and have found that the easy to understand have meant that when asking somebody "is this recording?" they can quickly let me know.
For anyone who is involved in extreme sports this is a must have product and at this price and quality is practically unrivalled in the current market.For budding photographers GoPro are now selling their LCD backpack which allows users to view what they are shooting on a screen, however this does come at a price and is one aspect that lets GoPro down for me. This goes for all their add ons be it the Wifi backpack, extra battery or LCD backpack.I would still thoroughly recommend this product to absolutely anybody and you can still experience the quality of the HD Hero 2 without paying for add ons. In my mind this a one of the hottest products out their at the moment and would seriously recommend it.
