GoPro HD Hero2 review: GoPro HD Hero2

 

GoPro HD Hero2

The ; boasts improved optics, a few new video- and still-photo-shooting modes, and backward compatibility with current HD Hero accessories. Most importantly, its interface has been overhauled and is now much easier to view and understand.

As improved as it is, the Hero2's interface can still be a bit confusing for the first-time user.

The GoPro HD Hero2 is easily the best GoPro camera yet, with the ruggedness and quality that we've come to expect and a new user-friendly interface.
