Picked up an odd bit of kit, at least for me.
A GoPro Hero 2 (outdoor edition) camera.
Why is it odd for me?
Is it the basic operation (it only has 2 buttons)?
Is it the ability to go to 60 meters under water? (not likely to find me there, at least not often but I do kayak)
It is comfortable in the snow (its battery is heated to prolong operating life in the cold)
It is a small rugged wearable POV camera, you activate and forget. for now I have it bolted to my cycle helmet.
(it has no built in lcd, you can buy an optional lcd if you really want to review what you are doing, which can be a bit dangerous for a first person viewpoint action camera)
You can also buy an optional wifi back and send your work direct to a pad or laptop)
Its main features include
Anyway I just picked it up before the long weekend started and
done gone and made a short 1080p hero2 timelapse http://t.co/v8wjha3R to test it out.
