A couple of years back, GoPro introduced a compact wrist-worn digital camera which let you shoot photos while you participated in sporting activities.
The problem was that the original only shot really low resolution pics that didn’t look very good. I’m happy to report that the company has recently bumped the camera up to 3-megapixels, so it now takes some pretty good quality photos.
The $139 Digital Hero 3 straps onto your wrist (or directly onto your sports equipment) and can shoot not only still photos, but can also shoot full motion video (with sound) at 640×480 resolution. The quality of the video is more than acceptable for YouTube, or even playback on a small TV. Thanks to an SD memory card slot, you can shoot up to 54 minutes of video on a single 2GB card.
It’s all packaged in a durable housing which can handle extreme movement and up to 100 feet of water, so you can even take it in the ocean or in a pool and shoot. Be sure to check out the sample pictures and videos over on the GoPro website.
