In the video above, GoPro’s HD HERO2 and HERO are compared for low light capabilities and overall image quality. A sample of the 120fps and an internal/external mic sound test are also shown. At 120fps, only the 170 degree wide angle view is available to shoot at in WVGA.
The optional Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote that add a Wi-Fi feature to the camera are most exciting for me. This will allow users to control their HD Hero and HD Hero2 cameras with their smartphone, iPad (or other tablet that no one cares about) or computer. You’ll also be able to live stream video to other devices on a Wi-Fi network with your HD Hero2. The Wi-Fi BacPac isn’t currently available but I’ll wager a guess that by the holiday shopping season, it’ll be on the shelf.
