GoPro HD Surf HERO


$270.00 Released November, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Gets great closeup shots with the fisheye. Can handle rain and a few quick dips underwater. Very light weight and easy to handle, good for capturing live action.

The Cons:Settings can be a little confusing, take some getting used to. Sound is a bit hollow and washed out. Poor in low-light conditions, doesn't pick up much, very noisy.

The HD Surf HERO is a mountable high-definition camera from GoPro that offers an alternative to the other cameras in the company's HERO series, including the HD Helmet Hero and the HD Motorsports HERO.
