Rated5out of5byfromA brilliant little cameraIf you Attach this camera to a unipod, you can take great pictures while swimming and diving, you can stick it out of the window of a helicopter while flying over mountains, you can take great images of waterfalls without getting wet.

Rated5out of5byfromawesome camera!this camera is awesome! i've taken it scuba diving & on tons of vacations, my boyfriend has recorded video from his motorcycle, etc. i noticed that the still pics can be a little grainy but the video is amazing. i took video at about 45 ft on a dive and the quality was still amazing, the battery life is great too, this was such a great gift.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat for video!This little camera is amazing. As long as you either use it for video recording, or use a tripod when shooting photos, you will be satisfied. Because of its small size, the photo option is only clear when using a tripod, but this is a video camera primarily.

Rated4out of5byfromGood, but can be better!Use it as helm/leg/harness cam while paragliding. Excellent, except for these: Wind/Contact noises transmit VERY sharply to the internal mic through the casing. Does not do well in highly contrasted light conditions - shady sides of the mountains are pretty much black if I'm up in the sunny sky The lens fogs up after 30 min of run-time in non-vented casing Can't make a continuous 1080 file longer than 34min (FAT32 file size limit) Battery life is OK...... just OK....< 2 Hours...

Rated5out of5byfromusing it as I write thisRight now I have it outside where it might rain and letting it run for an hour or so to catch an elusive action. Good for many uses but not for all uses.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat little cameraLove this little camera. You can stick it just about anywhere and get action shots. My only gripes are that you can go broke just buying accessories for it, and the tiny LCD screen and two button interface is a bit clunky to change settings, but it is what it is.

Rated4out of5byfromTons of awesome in a tiny little packageI borrowed the HERO1 from a buddy and after a short bit of use I couldn't pass up the sale for the HERO2. Durable enough for my 3 year old to run around with it and me not worry. So many attachments and extra goodies just means I need a camera bag, even though that kind of takes away from the compactness of the camera. Wide angle is just a fish eye lense, which is really noticeable for close shots, but not for distant shots. I think the only drawback so far is the battery life. 2 batteries, both died around 1.5 to 2.5 hours each, including standby time. Maybe I just need to learn to utilize the features better. This isn't a Hollywood studio professional grade camera, so don't expect it to be. GO BUY ONE!
