Finally Got to Play with the Hero2

I'm sure most of you with a GoPro know your settings and what works well, but I haven't had much time to play with mine until now.

I basically wanted to compare the different FOV settings to see what might might work best when recording matches.

The video is in 1080p. The first one is "Normal" mode, the second is "Medium," and the third is "Wide." You can see that normal mode is nice and square and as you progress through medium and wide you get more scenery, but more fish-eye effect too and at a farther apparent distance.

The distance to the tree line is about 100' or so.

The video was converted from .mp4 to .wmf (my PC is slow and the .wmf files just work better for me) and uploaded. It is stabilized by YouTube.
