Amateur Filmmakers Introduction The GoPro HD Hero2 is part of a new class of camcorders that is still searching for a definitive name. Some call them “hands-free” or “mountable”, while others prefer the terms “wearable” or “adventure cam”. For just $299 you can get the Hero2 along with its waterproof housing, a variety of mounts, and a few straps that let you wear the camera on a helmet (or surfboard or bike, depending on the package you buy). Design & Usability GoPro’s provided mounts and accessories are far easier to use than the one’s offered on Contour camcorders. Currently, GoPro only sells two camcorders—the HD Hero2 and the original HD Hero. The Hero2 comes in a variety of different packages that cater to specific shooting situations. The Hero2 itself is rather bland, with a few ports on both its left and right side, a battery that slips into a compartment on the back, and one button each on the top and front of the camcorder. Hands-free camcorders are always something of a challenge to get used to.
