GoPro HD HERO Naked Review
When Utah Outside conducted their GoPro HD HERO Naked review, to say they left impressed is an understatement. “First off, the GoPro HD HERO shoots amazing quality video for such a small package. To say it’s professional quality would be true, as I’ve even used it to shoot footage at my day job as a TV news videographer.”
After finishing our GoPro HD review, we feel the exact same way.
The GoPro HD HERO Naked is one of the best-selling, wearable, waterproof, shockproof point of view cameras in existence today. Providing professional quality high definition video footage and still shots at an affordable price that anyone can afford, it’s no wonder why GoPro has quickly become the most popular sports camera manufacturer in the world.
GoPro HD HERO Naked Review – Shoot High Quality HD Video
The GoPro HD HERO shoots video in crystal clear 1080p / 960p / 720p HD resolutions and records at 30 and 60 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). That means you can capture every amazing moment of your adrenaline rich activities with crisp, professional HD quality footage.
We love that the camera features the industry’s widest 170 degree angle lens so you never miss a piece of the action. That’s a wonderful feature to have for sports like motocross, mountain biking, or skiing, where a wide angle view is absolutely necessary to capture speed and technique. The camera also shoots a lesser 127 degree wide angle in the 1080p resolution.
What more you ask? The camera can also shoot automatic 5 megapixel photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second intervals, completely hands-free. The only thing you need to do is press the shutter button once at the start of your activity, and your GoPro camera will record up to 2 1/2 hours of ultra-high quality photos. Perform your sickest tricks and don’t worry about a thing as the camera effortlessly captures your awesome skills. A self-timer is also available for those group shots.
One of the coolest features of these point of view cameras are the size. Being small, lightweight, and portable, these impressive cameras are easy and convenient to take anywhere and won’t interfere with your performance. But make no mistake, although small, the GoPro HD Hero Naked is one of the toughest cameras out there – incredibly shockproof. These cameras can take anything you dish out and are built to take a beating. No need to panic if your camera skids across the asphalt.
GoPro HD HERO Naked Mount
The camera is compatible with all the other GoPro camera mounting accessories, which means you can mix and match optional accessories for quick setup in any number of different applications. It’s easy to expand the functionality of your camera to suction cup to vehicles, clamp to bike handlebars, mount to surfboards, and even wear on the wrist or chest. This adaptable little camera can go from land to water and your imagination is the only limit. Just simply pop the camera into place and go.
Another feature we liked is the impressive battery life which provides up to 2 1/2 hours of recording time on a single charge and up to 9 hours when using a 32GB SD card. It can be conveniently charged through any USB port. The camera also has a built-in battery warmer to protect the power source from cold during extreme winter activities. Included are cables for attaching the camera to an HDTV or computer.
Like all of GoPro’s cameras, HD HERO Naked loves water too. Did we mention the camera is waterproof up to 180 feet and boasts “Audio Excellence.” The camera’s amazing sound recording quality is specifically designed to eliminate wind noise from action sports filming and auto adjust to varying ambient noise levels. The camera performs well in less than ideal lighting situations with its 1.4 LUX low light performance and a massive 5MP sensor, allowing you to put your audience right in the middle of that high adrenaline action with the stunning HD quality of the GoPro HD HERO Naked.
The caliber and versatility of GoPro HD HERO Naked allows consumers to capture and create videos with quality normally only found in professional productions. So why wait any longer? Start getting those awesome shots you need to make your friends supremely jealous and secure your bragging rights for years to come.
