“The HD Hero2 is much, much easier to use than the original HD Hero,” says GoPro’s director of product definition, Rudy Samuels.

“If you know how to use a traditional camera, you can use the HD Hero2 straight out of the box without instructions. This makes the HD Hero2 very powerful as an everyday, easy to use consumer camera while retaining all of the features, modes and performance that has made GoPro the best selling small form factor HD camera to Hollywood.”

Out now, the GoPro HD Hero2 costs £299.99, with the original dropping to £199.99.
