GoPro is synonymous with wearable digital cameras as Frank's Red Hot is to hot sauce. The GoPro HD HERO Naked is the brand's newest product, and it may add some spiciness to that next mountain bike or snowboarding outing.

GoPro promotes the HD HERO Naked as being a low cost alternative for wearable high definition video and still cameras. The HD HERO Naked clocks in at a starting price of $259. It is capable of recording at 3 different HD resolutions – 1080p, 960p or 780p. It doubles as a still digital camera also, and can take continual photos at 5 megapixels from 2 to 60 second intervals.

It lives up to the ruggedness of GoPro since it has a waterproof enclosure. It keeps water out and also protects it from any unexpected contact if you happen to yard sale it on the slopes.

The GoPro offers a wide variety of mounts that make the HD HERO Naked adaptable from the powdery slopes to the thrill of base jumping. The most versatile mount offered by GoPro is the vented helmet strap mount. It safely secures your camera to the crown of your recreational helmet and it is painless to operate. Most importantly, it gives you a perspective of what you are viewing. It retails for $14.99.

The camera operates ultra smoothly since it is rather uncomplicated design. There are only a few main settings that need to be defined. Outside of that, it works like you would expect - a shutter button to start and stop the HD HERO Naked's operation. It hooks up quickly to a computer with the included mini-connector USB cord. The videos are in MP4 format and transfer quickly to an iPod or iPhone, so you can show the guys at work how you lived the big wave culture from your Oahu's North Shore trip.

It will add some fun and excitement to that next adventure trip especially if you need a change from your usual.
