    What temperature can a GoPro take?

    According to the GoPro site for a Hero 3 "The camera may shut down if the internal temperature reaches 82 Celsius (180 Fahrenheit)." and for the Hero original "In hot temperatures, the HD HERO cameras will automatically shut off if operational temperatures exceed 125 F."
    Did they really have in in with the beans at 150 to 200 C. The plastic would melt and the electronics would definitely fail very quickly.

    What a ripper.
    My son would kill me if I launched his precious GoPro into the roaster, cyclone or cooling tray... now I don't have to!

    Nice vid! It's very evident to me that they simply faked the roast - especially when the roaster dumps the beans into the cooling tray and they look stone-cold rather than the usual heat and smoke you'd expect. The only time you even see any smoke is later in this scene (where they would've used a fresh roast) where they're filming from above the beans.

    Not to mention the health and safety aspects of cooking a food product with a camera inside! especially in the scenes we're they dump the beans to get packed.

    Does anyone know what the devise type and brand is towards the end of the clip where he measure the "degree of roast"?
