I'm putting a YouTube review together tonight, HackHD vs. GoPro Hero1.

So far the most noticeable difference is the low light capabilities of the HackHD. It has a 1/1.8 or 38 square millimeter sensor size, while the Hero1 has a 1/2.5 or 25 square millimeter sensor size, or a ~35% increase.

[edit] I've also noticed that the HackHD does in fact use GoPro compatible lens threading - m12x0.5. Because the HackHD has a larger sensor, I believe you need to be more careful when selecting lenses to avoid cropping or vignetting.
