After recently upgrading to the GoPro HD Hero 2, I was excited about testing the practical improvements made with version 2. We are about to embark on a trip to Taipei, Taiwan and wanted to test what we can get off the city streets.
I employed the use of a 3D housing from GoPro, only using it so I can get both cameras pointed in the same direction. I used the suction cup as the main mount, so the image proved to be a little bit jittery from the top-heaviness of the 3D rig. When I looked at the footage, I was immediately impressed with the improvements of clarity (through optics and sensor), the amazing field of view as well as low light ability.

I mention an impending firmware update that would make the image quality even better. Official press release . Release date unknown.
