Are you looking for a point of view camera to pick up some sports action? The V.I.O. POV.HD Video Camera is a new offering to the sports camera market and it certainly stands out from the rest. While the GoPro Hero is a very capable camera for picking up sport action like biking, surfing and skydiving, its compact size does have some limitations. This is where the V.I.O. POV.HD steps in to offer a different design that might suit your needs better than the GoPro.
The main difference between the V.I.O. POV.HD and other sports cameras is its two part body design. The camera itself is separate to the recording body and is very compact indeed. It is much smaller than the GoPro. This is the part that is mounted on a helmet, googles, bike or whatever mounting system you need. Having the camera separate means that is is very light and if you are wearing it, you won't notice the weight. The second part of the design is the recorder and this is much more bulky than the GoPro but it does not have to be worn. It is a very rugged piece of kit with a 2.5-inch color LCD that can be used to properly frame shots, playback video and even edit video. Having the recording device separate also means that if something was to happen to the camera while you were involved in an extreme activity, the footage would remain safe. However, this would be a rare occurrence as the V.I.O. POV.HD is very rugged. It is shock proof, dust proof and water proof (1m/30min).
You can record video in both MOV or MP4 format which is perfect for both Mac and PC users. You can also take JPEG stills by tapping the record button. If you are going to record something particularly interesting and can't wait to see it, you can use a tag button to mark a place rather than having to scrub through lots of video later. The V.I.O. POV.HD comes with lots of mounting options including a goggle mount, a star mount, a remote strap and a headband strap. With all this great stuff, you can step right into the action with the V.I.O. POV.HD. Grab a great deal on this sports video camera here today.
