GoPro HD Hero2 Camcorder Review
Perhaps our favorite thing about the Hero2 is that, despite being an ultracompact model, the camcorder still has options for changing controls and shooting modes on the fly. You don't need to use special software or link the camcorder to your smartphone to access the menu system—you can do it all by using the tiny LCD on the front of the Hero2 and by pressing the camcorder's two buttons to cycle through the menu options. It's not the simplest system, and all that button pushing kind of made us feel like we were setting a watch or alarm clock, but at least the ability to adjust controls on the fly is an option. Important features include: multiple recording resolutions and frame rates, a bundle of still image controls (up to 11-megapixels), and an adjustable field of view for recording.
