And my new YouTube video here.
Ah, the inevitable product cycle. If you are a regular reader of this blog, or
viewer of my Youtube Channel you know that I am a big user and fan of
GoPro Cameras. Not quite as fanatical as an Apple fan.
It has been almost a year since the last GoPro Camera came out and I figured
I would make a video and post of my wish list for the next Hero.
I own most of the product line and make everything else I need from scratch.
Above and below are my three Heros, the Original Wide Hero the HD Hero
and the newest Hero2.
So what is on my wish list for the next Hero?
1. The camera needs a 1/4 20 tripod mount
2. It needs to be black. The fact is the Hero
is being used for professional tv
production and it needs to blend in,
not stick out.
3. It needs exposure lock or some form of
manual settings for exposure and
That is the quick wish list, I am not one of these folks that expects DSLR
features out of a three hundred dollar POV camera. However, there are
new competitors coming into the market and some features can be
tweaked easily. I was going to post a review of the Hero2, but I never
got around to it. I did want to mention, I like the new lens and sharper
sensor, I like the half second interval in time-lapse mode. I like the LED
light on the top and bottom of the camera, see below. And last but not
least, I like that you can choose to put the LCD screen on the camera.
I like POV cameras to be small and cheap, I hope GoPro continues
to make their cameras and accessories expandable so I don't have
to go buy new accessories with every new model. HUM HUM
Are you listening Canon and Sony?
