Its a video camera; is the still option really that good? Also can you point to any images which are not from GoPro or "sponsored" reviews?
Here are the specifications:
RESOLUTIONS: 11MP, 8MP, 5 MP
FOV: Wide 170Âº FOV, Medium 127Âº FOV
CAPTURE MODES: Single, 10 Photo Burst, Time-Lapse*, Self-Timer
* Now supports time-lapse photo every 0.5 seconds. Requires Class 10 speed SD Card.
And this upcoming feature is very interesting:
Wi-Fi BacPacâ„¢ and Wi-Fi Remoteâ„¢ Compatible (coming soon)
Long Range Remote Control of up to 50 GoPro Cameras
Wi-Fi Video/Photo Preview + Playback + Control via GoPro App
Live Streaming Video and Photos to the Web
The ability to control the camera remotely will be a huge advantage to the solo tourist,
In reality, I would be surprised if the still images are as good as my LX3, but I'm very willing to be surprised.
The Hero2 has only just been released, so not much independent footage to be seen yet. But there are a few - lookie here.
