GoPro Wide HERO You don’t need a sponsor to become an adventure-video star. GoPro’s Wide HERO camcorder comes in a waterproof, wearable, shockproof housing, with a superwide (170-degree) lens. Footage is reasonably sharp and free of backlight flares (a weakness of many wide-angle lenses when pointed into the sun). The camera shoots 56 minutes of video (or about 800 five-megapixel stills) on a 2GB SD card. Mounting brackets available for bikes, boats, helmets, and wrists. Life insurance not included. $190; 4.5 oz.; goprocamera.com
