Update to GoPro HD Camera

It's very sad to write about this I know, but this firmware update for the GoPro HD camera (which I used on yesterday's video) adds some useful functionality which we video people will like.

This amazing wee camera will now shoot 1080p PAL at 25fps, which is very useful. There's also a one-button-switches-on-and-records function, which would have helped me recently. I spent too long trying to get the camera back to the video setting and switch it on, a consequence of which was I nearly hit a bridge.

There's even a way of pluging in a monitor but, given the size of the plugs, it still can't be used to line up a shot when the camera is in its waterproof housing.
