GoPro HD Hero2 Outdoor Edition review – intro
The GoPro tends to beat its headcam competition hands down and the latest bout was no exception – it has remained our favourite action cam. It's hard-as-nails with a handy waterproof housing, and punts out crisp 1080p video and 11MP stills at a rate of 11fps.
The housing's 'back door' is swappable, giving you better sound recording capabilities, an LCD screen – or even a buoyant flotation pack.

Rivals, step down: the GoPro offers extra detail, more accurate colours and better exposure than others, while its super-wide 170 degree field-of-view makes getting those cinematic wide shots a snip. In other words: awesome.
