    It's official!

    gopro_3_views.jpg


    The spec sheet is every bit as impressive as we'd hoped. Likely even more. Delivery date is set for Nov 1 & we have already ordered a batch.

    The GoPro HD Vid Camera you can now buy in the PreSale leading up to Nov 1 if you'd like to get in on the first batch.

    ALL NEW BUY NOW PAGE is HERE - GoPro HD Vid Camera

    What's new?
    **Shoots professional-grade 1080p, 960p, and 720p HD video at 30 and 60 frames per second (720p)
    **Internal RF transceiver allows addition of wireless stereo microphone and remote, both with a range of 30 feet
    **"Preview" image wirelessly from the camera to a remote. Allows user to preview the camera's aim and viewing angle prior to recording.
    **Shoot up to 8 HOURS of Hi-Def video with sound using 32 SDHC card (not included), or activate the ''photo every 2 seconds'' mode to capture exciting action sequence stills
    **Industry first Internal Heating System to keep battery warm in cold environments, ie skiing!
    **Comes with Rechargeable 1100 maH Lithium-Ion Batteries providing 2.5 hrs of record time
    Plug in External Power Source to power camera & EXTEND battery life. Power cam with vehicle.
    **Microphone Jack built into side of camera for wired microphone. Mic your helmet & Speak!
    **1080P Hi-def video footage allows high quality frame grab from the video footage.

    What catches my eye besides the HD technology, is you can now power this thing with your bike. It has a microphone jack & you can shoot 8 hours of footage with this thing. Amazing little piece of technology.

    The very first HD vids are now being uploaded. This was completed just days ago.

    OUTSTANDING! Price?

    Pashnit, do you know if it fits in the current case? If so, can you buy just the camera so you can use the mounts you already have?

    Thanks! The BASE jump video is CLEAR!

    I wasn't interested in the original because I do DVDs, not just post to YouTube. I am very interested in getting a couple of these. Alot of the engineering and patching together of components for high quality video is already integrated into these. :thumbsup:

    Keith - it does not fit the current GoProMotorsports housing. The redesign made the camera just a wee bit thicker due to the new new on-board rechargeable battery. Trade off is no more eating up AAA batteries. All the mounts though are still compatible between the versions.

    These are available to buy right now - if you do, you'd be on the presale list, and we've only ordered so many in advance. Always hard to know how many will be needed.

    Price for the new GoPro HD is set at $299 for a complete kit. As usual, all sorts of MAP price rules apply to the advertised price. So click on the buy now button on the page so see what we have for you.

    Here's a photo from the past, but this is pushing 5 or so years ago when I had a microphone routed through the Hayabusa that came out just above the exhaust. Plugged into the full-size video cameo mounted on the tank. We've come a long way in 5 years! :cheerleader: Going to have to get another microphone. :laugh:

    Can see the wire on the right side there.

    Doug, once we get through the PreSale stuff over the next 30 days, we'll be stocking them. Whenever you're ready. :thumbsup:

    The new GoPro HD also retains the ability to function as a normal camera.

    Being a bit of a photo nut, the Photo-Every-2-Seconds setting has been a real pleasure to work with to Get the Shot.

    Some of the latest from a few days ago... Looking forward to shooting these in hi-def! This one might just be the cover of the 2010 PashnitBusa Calendar. :laugh:

    I've always put off getting a GoPro because of the video quality. Now I know what I want for Christmas... :thumbsup:

    Hi Keith - the first batch is shipping to us tomorrow. :thumbsup:

    Due to it being a presale, the catch is the manufacture is shipping out in order received and our orders are staggered. So we'll get the orders placed 9/28-10/4 first and send those out. Then we should get the next shipment shortly.

    Have also completed updatinh our Accessories page for the GoPro - some items are so new (LCD Clip-On screen), they are not yet available, but just waiting on some the cool accessory items to be released.

    Buy Now: GoPro Hero Accessories & Expansion Kits | PashnitMoto.com

    Btw, did you know you can power the normal GoPro with your bike? It was a micro-usb plug on it, and you can use the included cable in the kit which is USB on the other end. That plugs into this:

    aac-004_2_400.jpg aac-004.jpg

    Other thing we're sort of holding off on announcing is the new GoPro HD uses mini-usb plug on the side.

    So take a look at this one:

    Buy Now: Mini USB Cable Choices Powerlet Products | Pashnit Moto

    PPC-015_p_208_webl.jpg PPC-015-DB_p_211_webl.jpg

    If this will work, you'd be able to power the GoPro HD directly off your motorcycle battery. Basically, a simple $40 wire will solve all your power issues and with 9 hours of record time- you could record all day. :thumbsup:

    Once we have the cameras in hand, we can confirm. :cheerleader:
