GO PRO2 Low light performance
 
Hi,
Can anyoane translate what "professional low light performance" means?
If there are already owners among you, can you please make a sensitivity test?
It would be nice if one of the owners will be able to rate the camera so we'll know it's exposure index and behavior in low light conditions.
Thank you very much for your input.
Eugen

This is probably the best comparison and Low lite test i've seen.

Yes there are a lot of people expecting too much for a sports POV cam to have good low light performance. What for, it's the wrong camera for that use. More important is the WAY it handles changing lighting conditions and high contrast conditions and the new HD2 does that much better than the HD1.

Both or still very good value for what they were designed for.
