I have a slight obsession with timelapse video at the moment and am crazing one of these cameras – I first wanted one while watching the x-games last year (yes I’m a 47 year old women who loves the x-games). I think I may really believe that if I own one of these I’ll start doing extreme sports (you never know) or it may just be that putting something so well built into the hands of someone who thinks differently may create some great things. The new model (hero2) does both Ten 11 MP photos per second burst and one 11 MP photo every 0.5 sec in Timelapse Mode and those details excite me. It also (by all acounts) takes great video and sound. Is it too early to write to Santa? Find out more on the gopro website or amazon.
