HD Action Sports Cameras Support Automotive ‘How To’ Series
San Diego, CA, June 14, 2012 – Showing how to modify and maintain your vehicle on Motorz (www.motorz.tv) isn’t always the easiest to shoot and edit, and that’s where GoPro (www.gopro.com) was asked to provide their HD HERO2 cameras to aid in production of this highly regarded automotive TV series.
Chris Duke, host and executive producer of Motorz stated, “GoPro’s support means we’re able to capture video in places we couldn’t before, and add footage outside the studio that was impossible with our existing equipment.”
Used by more motorsports professionals, race teams and core enthusiasts than any other camera in the world. The HD HERO2: Motorsports Edition is the most advanced GoPro camera yet. Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197′ (60m), capable of capturing professional full 170º wide angle 1080p video and 11 megapixel photos at a rate of 10 photos per second, the HD HERO2 is the world’s most versatile camera.
