And here’s another one. I find it interesting on so many levels I don’t know where to start! The new line seems to have so many improvements as steps backward!
A side by side of go pro HD HERO 2 vs HD HERO 127º vs 170º (1:30) by powerlord69
Here’s a side by side video showing the 1080p mode, 127 º on the new HD HERO 2 and the original HD HERO. Note there is slightly more noise on the original HERO. I have also done a side by side showing the increased field of view you get with the new 170º 1080p mode.
