BLU2Pro More Information
Most cameraflyers will enjoy mounting the BLU2Pro to the top of their helmet and fish the indicator cable through their bite switch cutout. Although slightly fatter than a ditter (15mm vs 12mm), customers may also mount the BLU2Pro in an unused ditter pocket depending on the helmet fit. A piece a VHB tape is provided to affix the BLU2Pro to your helmet.
Most customers will get several months of operation off of a single charge provided they turn the unit off before traveling. The built in accelerometer wakes the unit up when gently shook or moved and searches for your camera. This uses the most power out of any operation so care should be taken to turn off the unit off before traveling.
Battery takes 2 hours to charge via USB-C.
This jack allows the customer to add an external "start/stop" switch. A bite switch maybe added but unfortunately the GoPro Camera will not continuously shoot when the switch is depressed. In other words, it will only take a single photo at a time. This is a limitation of the camera's software. Customers can always use the switch to activate Live Burst or time-lapse photos.
We are manufacturing these units here in the USA with parts sourced internationally.
The first lot is an eighth of the size we typically manufacturer and additional parts will not be available unit April of 2022.
Get yours while they are available as they will not last long.
Since the BLU2Pro is RF based, it is certified for sale in the EU but other countries may restrict its importation. For countries outside of the EU, I highly recommend sending it to someone who is stateside or using your own third party shipping service. We will send you a tracking number upon the BLU2Pro’s shipment and will not refund your order if it gets lost in customs.
Fedex tends to cost around $100 which is also an option if you do not want to take a gamble.
† GoPro HERO5 and HERO5 Session will see shorter battery life as Wi-Fi remains enabled. For other cameras, BLE uses minute amount of power and therefore battery life will not be changed.
‡ On the GoPro HERO10 non v30 speed cards will report a warning.
* When turning on the camera after 8 hours of inactivity, the Gopro Camera is in a deep sleep and a full boot occurs. Within 8 hours, the camera leaves the Bluetooth module on and is a suspended state. Therefore, it will take slightly longer to connect after 8 hours of inactivity as we need to wait for the camera to fully boot up. Additionally, some cameras are severely bogged down while recording. It may take additional time to connect if QuickCapture is used (aka One Button Mode.)
