Experimented Friday night with the GoPro HD Hero2, a video camera designed primarily for action video from tight spots, like the handlebars of a motorcycle, rollbar of a race car, etc. I’ve used the original GoPro for the last couple of years and while it shot acceptable video, it lacked detail and was not good in low light.
The new GoPro is improved, both in video detail and low light capability and using it to shoot B-Roll at the Jamboree provided some interesting wide angle effects. I’m looking forward to trying it from high angles (like shooting straight down from the ceiling) and other places.
