GoPro HD Hero Helmet Cam Review
GoPro, makers of the popular Hero Wide line of cameras announced some astonishing news at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Show this week. This Fall, they will be releasing the GoPro HD Wide, the world's first full high definition 1080p helmet camera! Yes, that's right, 1080p (1920 x 1080 resolution) on a freak'n helmet cam, how awesome is that? What's even more awesome is that the camera will retail for $299, quite possibly placing it among the world's most affordable 1080P high definition camcorder of any sort.
The overall visual appearance of the high definition GoPro HD Wide is pretty much the same - but the insides of the GoPro HD are very different and the specs tell the full story! The GoPro HD still has the killer 170 degree wide angle lens and will have three recording resolutions: 1080p (1980 x 1080), 960p (1280x960, so it's similar to 720p but at 4:3 ratio), and 720p (1280 x 720). What's even better is the camera can record 720p at double speed 60 FPS for buttery smooth high-def slow motion deliciousness. Here are the full video specs with bitrates, please note bitrates may change in final production version:
- 1080P 1980x1080 30 fps @12 Mbps
- 960P 1280x960, 30 fps @ 10 Mbps
- 720P 1280x720, 30 fps @ 7.5 Mbps
- 720P 1280x720, 60 fps @ 15 Mbps
- Sample videos and more specs after the jump!
