GoPro’s HD HERO Naked is the world’s highest performance wearable 1080p HD video and still photo camera. Professional quality 1080p / 960p / 720p HD resolutions record at 30 and 60 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). Record up to 2.5 hours on a single charge and up to 9 hours total on a 32GB SD card (not included).

The camera can also shoot automatic 5 megapixel photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second intervals during your activity, hands free. Press the shutter button once at the start of your activity and record up to 2.5 hours of poster-print quality photos of you and your friends, living it up.

Included is one mount for attaching the camera to a helmet or other curved surface as well as the quick-release HD housing which protects the camera.

The HD HERO Naked is compatible with all other GoPro HERO camera mounting accessories, so it's very easy to expand the functionality of your camera to suction cup to vehicles, clamp to bike handlebars and seat posts, mount to surfboards, and even be worn on the wrist or chest.

Waterproof to 180’ / 60m and protected from rocks and other hazards thanks to its removable polycarbonate housing. Replacement housings and lens kits are available, making repairs or refurbishing your HD HERO camera affordable and convenient. It's a GoPro...go for it.™

Be a HERO...GoPro, in HD.

Developed for professional use, but at a consumer price, the HD HERO line of wearable cameras capture full HD video rivaling cameras costing 10x the price. How? Our team consists of some of the the brightest minds in Silicon Valley who also happen to be obsessed with outdoor sports, race cars, and all things moto. Athletic super geeks? Indeed.

 

Professional Quality, Full HD Video

1080p, 960p, and 720p in 30 and 60 fps (720p). The HD HERO line of cameras offers three different HD resolutions, giving you three filming modes to capture the best angles for any given activity:

  • 1080p: 1920x1080 True HD featuring  a 127º angle of view, 30 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
  • 960p: 1280x960 Ultra Wide and Tall HD featuring a 170º angle of view, 30 fps, and 4:3 aspect ratio. See more of the action above and below than widescreen16:9 resolutions can show.
  • 720p: 1280x720 Ultra Wide HD featuring a 170º angle of view, both 30 and 60 fps, and 16:9  widescreen aspect ratio

 

5MP Photos, Automatically

HD HERO cameras can shoot hands-free, 5 megapixel photos automatically at  2 / 5 / 10 / 30 / and 60 second intervals until the batteries die or the SD card is full (2.5 hours). Or set it to single shot, triple shot, or self timer for more traditional photo taking.

 

Audio Excellence

We’ve invested more in the HD HERO camera's sound system than most companies spend on their entire camera development. You’ll only be hearing the sounds of your sport, not the howl of the wind. How? Obsessive audio engineering and an understanding that good sound is as important as good video.

 

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion, Built in Battery Warmer

The rechargeable 1100mAh lithium-ion battery (included) lasts for 2.5 hours of constant recording. It can be recharged to 80% capacity in just 2 hours when plugged into a computer’s USB port, or in 1 hour when plugged into a USB compatible wall or car charger. Camera can also be used while charging...handy on road trips where it's fun to leave the camera rolling. Camera also features an integrated battery heating system for keeping your battery warm in winter activities.

Comments about GoPro HD Hero Naked Camcorder:

The GoPro has opened my mind to new places to have cameras - great for multicam situations, but also good for GoPro specials, e.g. I have used plumbing PVC pipes to make an "L" shaped rig which can be anything from Ground level "doggycam", to Remote-control-car "simulcam" to underwater fish/swimmer cam and so on ....

Not too bad

By Canyon swimmer

from Canberra

About Me Semi-pro Videographer

Pros

  • Mounting options
  • Pretty good underwater
  • Small size
  • Solid construction

Cons

  • Complicated To Operate
  • Limited exposure latitude
  • Poor In Low Light

Best Uses

  • Home Movies

Comments about GoPro HD Hero Naked Camcorder:

Not too bad for such a small package. Works best in bright sunshine with limited contrast.

Found the buttons sometimes difficult to operate - with only two buttons, a press and hold (to turn off) can accidentally change capture mode instead if you're not careful.

I've used it mountain biking (very good in sunshine), snorkeling (performed well), canyoning (OK - though not to good in high contrast situations), on a motorbike (not too bad).

Still working out a few things - eg how to delete without using on a computer, not sure if this can be done. Have not found the instructions all that user friendly. You have no idea what you are really shooting without a screen, a bit pot luck.

        Hi, I shoot at 25fps, would the gropro be compatible with my projects?
        Asked on 21/6/2012 by BC from melb

        1 answer

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          Yes, provided that your HD HERO Original camera is loaded with the latest firmware update, you will be able to switch between NTSC and PAL recording. The HD HERO2 camera has this ability out of the box, without doing a product update.
          Whenever you have PAL selected in the settings menu of the camera, the camera will record at the standard PAL frame rates of 25 or 50 fps. This functionality makes it easier to edit the HD HERO videos together with any other videos recorded at PAL 25/50 rates.
