For quick setup, the included 3M adhesive base mounts to your board just like a traction pad. Clean your deck, apply the adhesive base, click your camera onto the base...and paddle out. It's that easy. Proven in heavy surf around the world by GoPro's professional team of surfers, you can be sure the HD Surf HERO is designed to charge as hard as you do. Another included mounting option is the FCS fin plug compatible mount. This sleek, patent-pending mounting option allows you to install an FCS center fin plug into the deck of your board and then allen-key screw your HD Surf HERO in place on the deck. When you remove the camera, all that remains on your board is the flush, smooth FCS fin plug. The HD Surf HERO is so light that even top pros riding ultra lightweight boards claim they don't notice the camera on their boards. All this from an HD camera that is waterproof to 180'/60m.

Widest Range of Video & Photo Capabilities
For the more technically-inclined user looking for the latest in technology and options, the HD Surf HERO offers a remarkable range of video and photo modes, giving you more creative control:
1080p – "True HD" video at 30 frames per second produces maximum clarity and realism. To put it in perspective, 1080p video at 30 frames per second is the equivalent of shooting thirty 2-megapixel photos per second. Incredible realism you're used to seeing only in the movies. The viewing area becomes a slightly less-wide (127º) at this resolution, wide angle view, making 1080p a slightly less wide-angle view than the other resolutions. Perfect for situations where you might want to focus more on objects in the distance than up close. It's like having two lenses in one camera.
960p – "Maximum Wide Angle" 170º video at 30 frames per second. Certain sports like surfing benefit from 960p's maximum top to bottom viewing area. This makes it easy to film yourself from head to toe while riding even your shortest shortboard. Document more of you, the wave, and your surroundings with 960p for the most immersive video possible.
720p – "Slow-motion Cinema" is possible thanks to the HD Surf HERO's incredibly smooth 60 frames per second 720p video. 720p (1280 x 720p) can record in either standard 30 frames per second or 60 frames per second. While 30 frames per second pleases the eye, 60 frames per second straight blows the mind when played back in liquid smooth slow motion. Everything looks good in slow motion...including you.
Professional Sound that Automatically Adjusts to your Environment
The best sound quality of any wearable camera, period. Professional quality sound with AGC (automatic gain control) tuned for action sports and motorsports. With the ability to reduce the sound of wind noise at high speeds, the HD HERO line of cameras are simply the best sounding wearable sports cameras available. Fully automatic with no manual settings or adjustments needed, the camera will adjust the sound level automatically to maintain and optimum sound recording.
Also includes an optional non-waterproof back door that can be used in activities where waterproofness is not needed. This feature allows more sound into the protective housing, resulting in fuller, more immersive soundtracks. That said, the AGC (automatic gain control) does an excellent job of automatically increasing the microphone's sensitivity to provide impressive sound even when the camera is sealed in the waterproof housing with the waterproof back door.
Shoot 5 megapixel Photos Automatically, a Feature Available only from GoPro
GoPro's HD HEROs are the only wearable sports cameras to offer automatic photo-taking modes, making hands-free photo capture a reality. You'll be amazed at the photos you'll capture thanks to an ability to shoots a photo every 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 seconds, automatically while you surf. Press the shutter button once on the paddle out and the camera will shoot automatic photos of you during your entire surf. It's that easy.
Other photo modes include traditional single shot, triple shot and self-timer modes, making the HD Surf HERO the only camera you need to document not only the most active moments of your life...but also the more relaxed moments where a traditional photo is what you want. You'll also appreciate the edge to edge sharpness of the 170º wide angle lens as well as the HD Surf HERO's terrific low light performance (1.4 lux).
