Our trip preparations before our long Europe road trip of approximately 750 km this summer continues. Now we got a new video camera, an action video camera actually: a GoPro Hero 2 Outdoor Edition. Small, effective, practical and very outdoorsy.

GoPro Hero 2 video action camera

Photo taken with my iPhone, not very good but you get the picture – how small it is (2.4 x 1.6 x 1.2 inches ), when you look at that suction cap in the front which is HUGE comparing to the mini video camera! The size is why we were interested in the first place.

As they say themselves at their website:

Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197? (60m), capable of capturing professional full 170º wide angle 1080p video and 11 megapixel photos at a rate of 10 photos per second, the HD HERO2 is the world’s most versatile camera.

It can even handle under water filming though there seem to be a loss of sharpness with underwater images according what I’ve read on the internet about it. There is also another con: it’s difficult to aim without a LCD…

We’re not exactly sports-persons in the true meaning of that word, but we will nevertheless try on the Head Strap in some situations.
