How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Given that you can shoot HD video from just about any current phone or digital camera, a dedicated camcorder needs to do more than just make movies. The GoPro HD Hero2 does a lot more. You can shoot underwater, on the slopes or in the dirt. If you're looking for a go-anywhere HD camcorder that will come back in one piece, the GoPro is hard to beat (and we mean that literally).
