    I have the GoPro HD HERO2 and it is really great with all the new features, but as soon as the light dims, it gets noisy and lots of light flares. The HD video and 11 megapixel photos are superb and one can get some great effects. However I think the GoPro promo video is false advertising, there is no way you will get the same kind of video straight out of the camera, I would say a lot of post production has taken place to get the sharp smooth slow-motion etc, I think GoPro should make consumers aware of this.
