    Trm tuned e36 m3 vs 997s

    I'm driving around this afternoon with the cutout open. With the motor making all the right sounds(no radio needed with sound track like it). I'm on central ave in yonkers, and about to get on the sprain brook pkw north when I notice the 997s with a gt3 package car on my rear bumper. I get into the left lane he quickly gets behind me, and I'm trying to figure out if it is a turbo,gt3, or a 997s. We get on the Sprain, and i get over to the middle lane light traffic he is still on my bumper left lane clears up he gets in it. He signals he wants to run. I drop to 3rd at about 65mph, and 3 beeps we are off he jumped it abit just for me to see its a 997s. I instantly make up the distance, and I keep adding buses on him. I shut it down at about 135-140mph with him pretty far back. I ease on the brakes, and wait for him to catch up. We make I eye contact he just shakes his head and kept going. I get off the exit with a Click here to enlarge.

    YouTube - HD Hero SHOOTOUT: Canon XH-A1 HDV vs. GoPro HD HERO (Please watch directly on youtube so you can compare in HD!)

    From my personal experience there is nothing else like this on the market. It can record at 60 frames per second in high definition format! I've tried buying compact point and shoot cameras that can record HD, but they cannot stand the abuse of motorsports and don't have the proper dampening which usually causes the videos to be shaky. Especially if you use it for biking, race karts, etc.

    Specs from the website and some video links!

    GoPro HD HERO®: Pre-Production Test Footage
    Be a HERO...GoPro, in HD.


    Developed for professional use, but at a consumer price, the HD HERO line of wearable cameras capture full HD video rivaling cameras costing 10x the price. How? Our team consists of some of the the brightest minds in Silicon Valley who also happen to be obsessed with outdoor sports, race cars, and all things moto. Athletic super geeks? Indeed.


    Professional Quality, Full HD Video


    1080p, 960p, and 720p in 30 and 60 fps (720p). The HD HERO line of cameras offers three different HD resolutions, giving you three filming modes to capture the best angles for any given activity:

    • 1080p: 1920x1080 True HD featuring a 127º angle of view, 30 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
    • 960p: 1280x960 Ultra Wide and Tall HD featuring a 170º angle of view, 30 fps, and 4:3 aspect ratio. See more of the action above and below than widescreen16:9 resolutions can show.
    • 720p: 1280x720 Ultra Wide HD featuring a 170º angle of view, both 30 and 60 fps, and 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio



    5MP Photos, Automatically


    HD HERO cameras can shoot hands-free, 5 megapixel photos automatically at 2 / 5 / 10 / 30 / and 60 second intervals until the batteries die or the SD card is full (2.5 hours). Or set it to single shot, triple shot, or self timer for more traditional photo taking.


    Audio Excellence


    We’ve invested more in the HD HERO camera's sound system than most companies spend on their entire camera development. You’ll only be hearing the sounds of your sport, not the howl of the wind. How? Obsessive audio engineering and an understanding that good sound is as important as good video.


    Rechargeable Lithium-Ion, Built in Battery Warmer


    The rechargeable 1100mAh lithium-ion battery (included) lasts for 2.5 hours of constant recording. It can be recharged to 80% capacity in just 2 hours when plugged into a computer’s USB port, or in 1 hour when plugged into a USB compatible wall or car charger. Camera can also be used while charging...handy on road trips where it's fun to leave the camera rolling. Camera also features an integrated battery heating system for keeping your battery warm in winter activities.


    Shockproof, Bombproof, Waterproof to 180’ / 60m


    Don’t let a little water, or even a ton of water get in the way of getting the shot. Proven in heavy surf from Hawaii to Tahiti, Southern Mexico to Northern California, HD HERO cameras can handle it thanks their highly engineered polycarbonate exoskeletal housing. Waterproof to 180’ / 60m and tough enough to take a spin across the asphalt, GoPos are built to take a beating. Replacement lens kits are also available for $20, so there’s little worry of scratching the tempered glass lens while going for glory. Trash the housing in a massive crash? Replacements are available for $40. It’s a GoPro...go for it.


    GoPro’s HD Motorsports HERO is the world’s highest performance 1080p HD on-board video and still photo camera. Professional quality 1080p, 960p, and 720p HD resolutions record at 30 frames per second (60 fps in 720p). The HD Motorsports HERO easily mounts to any helmet, motorcycle, ATV, car, plane, jet ski, boat, snowmobile or other vehicle. The camera’s quick-release mounting design makes it easy to re-position the camera around your vehicle for professional quality HD video from several angles.

    Record up to 2.5 hours on a single charge and up to 9 hours total on a 32GB SD card (not included).

    Included are mounts for two helmets and three vehicles, as well as a suction cup for maximum versatility and convenience. The housing is waterproof to 180’ / 60m.

    GoPro's obsession with sound has conquered the wind. At 85 mph on a motorcycle, you’ll enjoy the throaty sound of your motor, not the wind. Inside even the quietest street cars, hear the pull of your motor...not the drone of the wind and road.

    Included is a 1100mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts for up to 2.5 hours of constant recording. With optional accessories, you can also plug the camera into a wall outlet, cigarette lighter, or with any USB-compatible power adapter, wire it directly to your vehicle’s electrical system. The battery will charge while you record.

    The camera can also shoot automatic 5MP photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second intervals during your drive or ride, hands free. Press the shutter button once and record up to 2.5 hours of poster-print quality photos.

    Waterproof to 180’ / 60m and protected from rocks and other hazards thanks to its removable polycarbonate housing. Replacement housings and lens kits are available, making repairs or refurbishing your HD HERO camera affordable and convenient. It's a GoPro...go for it.™

    Why not use the GoPro as your camcorder? You can buy a separate LCD screen for it...

    Of course you can view them on your computer, lol

    The LCD is for either viewing it while you are taping or for review 'out in the field'
