Hiring the GOPRO Hero 2
The video camera is a GOPRO Hero 2. It is a small camera which takes a wide-angle view of 170° and it gives an extremely clear picture.
The camera can be free-standing, or attached to things such as poles, or stuck to objects using the adhesive discs provided.
The camera can provide you with the opportunity to film your pet in all weather conditions. Its robust nature means it can go on walks or rides with your pet, or it can “spy” on your pet when they are outside the house. Its assortment of attachment and mounting options means it can be set up in difficult places.
Have a look at this video of my dog’s creation with the camera attached to her collar:
With an 8GB SD card it can record for approximately 2 hours. The battery will last for approximately 2 hours when recording at the resolution it is set at which is 960p30. The battery will last longer if the video is set at a lower resolution, and obviously a 16SD card will store more video.
The camera should always be housed in its shock-proof case. There are 2 options- a “skeleton case” which will record sound more clearly but is not waterproof, or the waterproof housing which will record loud noises only.
If you would like to hire the video camera, the cost is $30 for 3 days. A $100 deposit will be required.
The camera will be supplied with an SD card, charged battery, manual and accessories.
Contact Katrina if you would like to arrange the hire and collection of the camera. She will need to explain its care and proper use.
To view the video, you need to connect either the camera to your computer, or insert the SD card into your computer. Footage cannot be displayed or viewed on the camera itself. The camera is compatible with Microsoft Vista, 7 or later, and Mac OS x 10.5 or later.
