The GoPro Cam really would be able show some great action footage! Packrafting seems very cool from that perspective-----Nice Chill-Out tunes too!

Has it improved? on 08/26/2009 13:12:51 MDT Print View

I have an earlier version of the Digital Hero, and I have used it exactly once, on a kayaking trip to SE Alaska in 2007. I thought it was a disaster, and abandoned it.

To get a decent picture you needed to have the light JUST RIGHT- God forbid you challenge the thing with other than bright daylight with a near-stationary subject. Having any decent shots at all from that trip was wholly a matter of luck. (I used it mainly for still photos.)

What are the specs on this iteration?

I really enjoyed that review and video. The camera seems to be very user friendly, with the exception of having to remove your helmet to begin shooting. And, the video and wide view were great.

Think I'll try to get in the BPL Packrafting course next year. Looks like a lot of fun!

I'm with Dean. I tried one of these in Mexico and found it worthless. Not being able to see what you're doing or knowing if it's on.

How is the sound on the new model?
