The Oregon Scientific ATC9K 1080p HD Video Camera
The upcoming release of the High Def ATC9K by Oregon Scientific will be giving some other 1080p cameras a run for their money and with the popularity of their previous SD models… is sure to be a mighty contender in the world of HD action sports cameras. Pre orders for its October 1, 2010 release are now being taken… so get in line for this one… it’s bound to win some hearts!
Let’s talk about filming, because the ATC9K provides the opportunity to capture thorough footage without weighing you down with excess equipment. Filming in true 1080p HD format at 30fps through a 135º lens, the ATC9K by Oregon Scientific also can record in 720p at 30 or 60 fps. What’s more, ATC9K morphs into a digital point and shoot… snapping 5 megapixel stills - talk about a multi-tasker. Another not so common feature in the world of wearable, action cameras is the addition of a color, LCD display, enabling the user to playback footage for instant review - and just to make life a little easier… the ATC9K also comes with a handy little remote for easy control, no matter where the camera is mounted.
The ATC9K has been specifically designed for use in action sport environments and because Oregon Scientific has constructed the camera with a rugged body that waterproof up to 20 feet this is a great camera for winter and water sports, as well as for Scuba divers and rainy day warriors who like to brave the muck. The ATC9K is also an excellent option for wake-boarders and surfers, as it enables them to record their acceleration and distance.
The ATC9K expertly captures all the detail thanks to it’s ability to measure gravity force during acceleration. On top of that, the ATC9K also sports an optional GPS plug-in, letting users map their location, speed and distance traveled using Google Maps or Google Earth. Once hooked to the computer… you can see the corresponding location, acceleration, altitude and Google Map all within Oregon Scientific’s in depth software, developed specifically for this feature. This is an incredibly useful tool for anyone who is on the lookout for new trails to mix up their filming/riding terrain.
Equipped with a built in microphone, the ATC9K enables you to playback captured sound and narration, for footage with full audio. But if silence and discretion is required, you can record with the camera sounds and LED light turned off for optimal, custom control.
The Oregon Scientific ATC9K lets you display that personal touch to your videos with a range of mounting options. The package comes with everything you need to mount the camera to your helmet, goggles or handlebars… but it doesn’t stop there, there are many other mounts available, allowing you to stick the ATC9K to pretty much any surface.
With features like these all packed into one inclusive camera, one can only wonder what the competition is going to come up with to match the performance levels of the Oregon Scientific ATC9K.
