One day, it’ll probably seem quaint to think that snowboarders once had to describe the amazing run they just rode, rather than just showing their mates the movie. The GoPro Motorsports Hero is a high-definition video camera designed specifically with extreme sports types in mind: just strap one to your board or helmet and you can capture your exploits in all their wide-angle glory.
It can shoot over four hours of full HD footage (up to eight hours at standard resolutions) and is waterproof to depths of 60 meters. There’s also a cheaper, marginally less rugged SD version available.
