How to Prevent Wind Noise on Videos

If you find that you are picking up too much wind noise in your recording, there are several things you can do to minimize this: When you don't need the camera to be waterproof and are traveling under 100MPH, you can use the open back housing door.  This will allow for more of the engine or exhaust noise to be picked up by the microphone, and override the wind noise.

All of the cameras’ lenses are cleaned before they leave the factory.  Sometimes a thin purple film can be seen on the lens.  If this occurs, it just means that our cleaning solution wasn’t wiped off all the way. There’s an easy way to remove it. Breathing gently on the lens to fog it up and then wiping with a gentle cloth is the most affective way to clean the lens.  Repeat until clean.

How to Prevent Waves or Distortion in Videos

If you are experiencing this wavy or distorted footage when using your GoPro during an activity where there is a large amount of vibration, it is most likely that a vibration is being emitted which is actually reaching the camera's sensor and causing the waviness. Depending on where and how you have your camera placed, there are a number of things you can do.  For example, when placed on a roll bar, add a strip of rubber (i.e. from a bike inner tube) to dampen the vibration.  With the curved or...

Type of Battery Used In the HD HERO Cameras

The HD HERO kits include a rechargeable lithium ion battery pack. The battery is charged directly through the USB cable when connected from the camera to a computer or USB wall/car power adapter. The battery pack is designed specifically for use in the HD HERO camera and the rigorous activities that it is put through. 

Shortened Camera Battery-life

The batteries used in the HD HERO cameras need to be power cycled a few times when they're new before you'll get the full battery-life out of them. To power cycle your battery, please charge until full and deplete by recording a video with the camera.  Repeat this three times.  Your battery-life should then be about 2 hours of continuous recording. If you continue to have shortened battery-life, please contact GoPro Customer Support.
