Some remarkably crisp images on the GoPro's Video Revolution" 60-Minutes segment Sunday. This is a consumer-priced, very-compact video camera that can be attached to helmets or held for capturing personal views while skiing, biking, underwater swimming, etc. Some of the images seemed better on my 65" plasma than seen from many pro-hardware shots for nature shows. -- John

Did they mention how dismal the battery life is?

This reminds me of when HDNet used to cover the electronic shows... somehow the featured HD sets looked better than the rest of the image. :)

No, it was pretty much a puff piece for GoPro. I'm sure they loved it.
