Excellent Christmas gift idea! meant for those who wants to capture their great moments while driving HARD!




The world's smallest, wireless on-board video camera.

The Motorsports HERO Wide quick-release attaches to helmets, cars, motorcycles, boats, planes, etc. Features the industry's widest 170º wide angle lens and 5 megapixel sensor for the most immersive point of view video and photos possible from a wearable sports camera, period.

Sets up in seconds and is easily moved between different mount locations. Shoot 56 minutes of high-resolution video and 5 megapixel photos automatically in "Photo every 2 seconds" mode. Use as a hand held camera, too. Shockproof and waterproof to 100 feet/30 meters.

Based on the best selling original Motorsports HERO camera, the Motorsports HERO Wide features improved video, photo, audio, and low light performance. Reliability in ultra-high vibration environments has been improved with an entirely new internal circuit design. Battery life is improved to 3 hours of video record time when using Lithium batteries and 2 hours when using NiMH rechargeable batteries.

Five quick-release adhesive mounts and industrial strength suction cup are included. Suction cup is GoPro-approved for external high speed driving and riding, and is strong enough to pull dents out of a car door (unfortunately tested by GoPro). Adhesive mounts are removable but require purposeful removal by user. Safe on painted surface.

Additional expansion mounts available separately, including roll bar, handlebar/seatpost, chest harness, and surfboard mounts.

This camera is f-ing durable. I just got the HD version... I've only used it a couple times so far, but I freaking love it. I plan on some serious mayhem with this on the slopes :lildevil:

^ The HD version is the only version I would buy cause it has much better audio quality and the picture quality is absolutely amazing.

I just bought the motorsports package and an extra "grab-bag of mounts" accessory. Although I believe it already comes with a bunch of mounts with the 3M foam tape.

*EDIT* Oh and the camera's also good for New Year's, since it's waterproof and built to take a beating :giggle:
