    New GoPro HD Hero2

    Just learned of the new HD Hero2 from GoPro. I at first I wasn't sure if it was worth the extra ~$60, but after reading the new features, it looks pretty sweet!

    Now, I just need to come up with some ideas to prove to the wife that it's "necessary".

    I've always been a ContourHD fan. It had 720p HD recording before GoPro, and really, before the whole POV cam market took off. The video was crisp and chop-free, and plus, it's got freakin' lasers on it!

    I was looking at that that Hero 2 though, and I think I found my Christmas present. I like the external mic input (I hacked my Contour to have one, but right out of the box is great.) I also like the adjustable camera field angles. I hated the contant fish-eye effect of the older GoPros, but this one looks awesome!

    One issue I always had with the Contours was wind noise, so I modified the chassis and sqeezed a microphone jack into the shell, and then used an external mic in my jacket. For cars, I kept the camera outside, and ran the mic into the footwell. You get all the growly engine noise with none of the wind.

    Do it! They're great for more than just driving. I use mine for skiing all the time.
