    Action Cam!! IN HD!! OMG!

    Dan from Oregon Scientific talks to nick about the new ATC 9K, a full HD camcorder that's small enough to take anywhere, including bolting it onto your head...

    nice framing, zooming and picture-in-picture. the newbie whatsherface is doing a good job

    as for the action cam - that remote, I take it its infrared, wont the same remote operate every camera that picks the signal up. might get annoying if theres a bunch of you snowboarding around all jumping of the same jumps and you turn everyone elses camera off just as they start the jump

    Doesn't appear to have image stabilisation, which is a shame for something like that.

    Re: Action Cam!! IN HD!! OMG!

    Fetaure packed, however, I was disappointed with the bike shot at the end, didnt look HD (dont know whether this is down to compression or a limitation of the provided editing software etc...), id hate to think what non HD looks like.
    Colour also seemed off when in the studio. I'd have to see more output videos if I was going to purchase.

    Have to say, I'm quite impressed by that. Since Contour dropped their quite reasonably priced 720p camera for their quite expensive 1080p version, I've been keeping an eye out for a good alternative. With the GPS module this seems like a good deal, especially with 720p at 60fps. The map and G overlay would be ideal for track days too.

    Speaking of which, don't suppose they (or Hexus?) fancy lending one for a test at Brands Hatch in a few weeks time?

    Shad.. I'd love to see that.

    Would look good on my rallly car too, and with some Sat Nav / Google Map love, you could see the motor sport action

    Water proof is brilliant, for swimminng/scuba etc but also just high speed rain!

    HDMI output, removable battery, all the cables. Awesome thing

    Yes the ability to use it in the wet (in theory) is very cool.

    How is the rallying going? It must be time for an in-depth update by now!

    I'm very tempted by this or the GoPro HD Helmet Hero.

    Bit late to the party, but just checked out this review - what a cool bit of kit. How heavy was it though? Strapped to my ski/bike helmet I want to be able to forget it's there.

    Re: Action Cam!! IN HD!! OMG!

    I ended up getting the GoPro HD Helmet Hero, it's a fantastic bit of kit which i have tried out at Cannock Chase and Llandgela. Image quality is superb in 720p @ 60fps. It's taken a few knocks already and been fully submerged in water, without any negative effects. A couple of points to watch out for when buying an action cam, check out the mounts that are available, i have found although the go pro mounts are good they do not always hold the camera firmly in place, especially when attached to the handlebars/forks and going over drop off's or really bumpy terrain. There is a chest mount which is perhaps better for this type of filming.

    Helmet mounted it was a little of putting, it wasn't heavy but it did upset the balance and just didn't feel right. That might not be a problem if you wear a full face helmet.

    Re: Action Cam!! IN HD!! OMG!

    I think I'm after a helmet mounted cam above all - I was considering the VIO POV 1.5, but that's quite pricey for what you get and is not HD or rated to 20m. That said, the camera itself is tiny and looks good for helmet mounting. Some of the videos I've seen from it are amazing too;

    Re: Action Cam!! IN HD!! OMG!

    It looks the part, certainly more aero dynamic than the go pro, it is indeed expensive for a non HD action cam. You can always find ways around the mounting / weight issue, but if your set on helmet mounted then have you also considered the DriftHD?
