    GoPro Naked closing out?

    Saw a GoPro Naked at a local big box store on sale for $129 which surprised me. So now I have a question since I've got a couple of things posted for sale which should net me enough funds to get this:

    How does the GoPro Naked compare to the GoPro Hero2 for web video uploads (youtube, vimeo, twitter, ...) ?

    Mostly I'll be using it for bicycling and motorcycling, and other outdoor sports. I might even attach it to our retriever to experiment a bit.

    Thanks for any opinions.

    they largely have the same basic functions. the one thing (for me) that the hero 2 has that I want that the hero naked does not have is the 120fps mode. that's not to useful for cycling so I think you will be just fine with the naked.

    I don't have one (too expensive for me) but the $129 pricing is VERY TEMPTING. if its still $129 when I have that much cash I am going to get one.

    Thanks for the reply, unfortunately the stuff I have for sale on the local craigslist isn't selling so no camera money. Also I checked at another of the stores that carry the Gopro Naked and that location's price was still $199, so I'm thinking someone goofed with the price at the first store. oh well.

    Thanks for the reply and input. I'd be using the camera on a motorcycle as well. I will have to research what the 120fps would do for me.

    It's $129 on the official GoPro site: http://gopro.com/cameras/hd-hero-naked-camera/

    Thanks for catching that.

    I just noticed in the specs for the Naked and for the Hero2 that they list Windows Vista and 7 or later but don't mention XP. I'm thinking an OS upgrade or replacement of our home computers may be getting added to the shopping/ want list as well.

    oh well, back to the garage to see what else I can find to try and sell for camera and now computer upgrade funds.

    they probably have some stupid piece of software that you don't need that doesn't require an OS upgrade anyway. They had to mention Vista because it's incompatible with everything

    you do NOT need any software for the gopro. I assume they are usb mass storage at best (auto supported in XP and up) or just pop the memory card and into a reader. compatible with anything then.
