Well i've just watched this http://pointofviewcameras.com/blog/pov/article/gopro-hd-hero-vs-hd-hero2-video-comparison/ and i can certainly see a massive difference so now know where the extra 100 goes. Hero 2 certainly wins hands down.

Cheers for the software info, gives me something to look at.

I am however tempted by the drift camera as it comes with the remote function. I know gopro are bringing one out but i suppose it comes down to the good old signs in the end too.

Apparently the 2 also has a better lens - cannot comment on that. I guess to some extent it depends on what you are going to view your results on, a small laptoop screen probably does not need too high a resolution.
I use Windows Live Movie Maker on a i3 equipped laptop, and I was able to get a video onto YouTube in one evening, despite never having used Movie Maker or YouTube before
Nothing wrong with the Drift HD

Never suggested there was. I have no knowledge of the Drift, so it would be wrong for me to comment. Actions asked specifically about the GoPro range.

Thanks for the replies chaps.

I was going to ask what the wife thought but i know that will come back with a simple women ish reply of "they look the same to me", before she turns back to watching bloody dancing on ice.

I love the quality of the gopro but i have to say the drift is very attractive with the cost being so much lower, plus the remote option included in the price.

Time for thinking with a beer.

It would be interesting to run both side by side and see the differences. If you are ever down South ......................

After a beer the Hero HD2 is the winner.

Now for convincing the wife its the way forward. Maybe the route of "You can use it horseriding" will be a good one...... knowing full well this would never happen.
