GoPro announces HD HERO 960 camera
Are you one who gets involved in plenty of hardcore and extreme sports? If so, getting a recording from your point of view isn’t something that’s easily achievable with just about any other digital camera or camcorder, and this is where the GoPro HD HERO 960 camera comes in handy. This will be an entry level model retailing for $179 a pop, where it will share some similarities to the award winning HD HERO camera. The HD HERO 960 will come with a similar professional image and sound quality which can be found on the original HD HERO camera, which incidentally has been the choice for more athletes and filmmakers than any other sports camera in the world.
It doesn’t matter whether your passion lies in outdoor sports or motorsports, jumping out of gondolas or out of airplanes, GoPro’s HD HERO 960 will definitely be worth checking out. It was specially designed to be attached to your body, head, helmet, and favorite gear, making it a snap to shoot professional quality HD video of you and your friends in action. You also have a wide array of mounting accessories to choose from, ranging from chest harnesses to head straps, pole mounts to surfboard mounts make it easy to capture incredible footage which can normally be found only in professional productions.
The HD HERO 960 might be an entry level model of the original 1080p HD HERO, but that doesn’t mean it skimps on quality. It will still behold the same cutting edge video and audio capture technology, albeit at a lower resolution of 960p (1280 x 960) and 720p (1280 x 720) at 30 frames per second, as well as WVGA (848 x 480) at 60 frames per second. Apart from that, the HERO BUS expansion port has also been removed, which means there is no way you can now cram in LCD, secondary battery and additional expansion BacPacs to the device. Apart from those seemingly shortcomings, the HD HERO 960 is a full blooded GoPro camera through and through, where you will be able to bring one of these puppies home for $179.
