Still/video camera built into fully functional scuba mask Review by conradb212
We had a chance to review a pre-production version of the Liquid Image 310 and came away impressed (see scubadiverinfo.com/3_cameras_liquidimage_videomask310.html). Though rated for just 33 feet, we took it down to the wreck of the Yukon at 90 feet and it never missed a beat. In summary, the Liquid Image VideoMask lets you shoot still underwater pictures and video without having to carry a camera. This means you have your hands free for other things and don't have the added water resistance from holding a camera. The mask part of the video mask is good enough to replace a conventional mask. And the camera part is well enough integrated so that you're hardly aware of it. This makes the VideoMask much more than just a novelty.
- Combines a camera with a good quality scuba mask
- Rated waterproof to 33 feet, but worked fine at 85 feet
- Camera does not get in the way
- Super-simple operation
- Uses microSD cards (we tested with an 8GB card)
- Good video and still image quality
- Excellent for documenting dives as well as pics and video
Not so much:
- Proper framing requires getting used to
- Status LCD and icons very small
- Should focus closer than 1.7 feet
- Would prefer wider angle
- Uses costly Lithium batteries (Posted on 6/24/09) (Posted on 6/24/09)
Nice to have; but a waterproof camera works better Review by DV88
- It's great for a swimming pool or a shallow (very shallow) reef. Any other conditions, just cross your fingers that nothing pops.
- The indicator light is hard to see when the thing is on/off.
Editors note: We recommend the Liquid Image 310 or 320 models for diving applications. The 310 is good to 33 ft (10 m) and the 320 model is certified up to a depth rating of 115 ft (35 m) (Posted on 6/12/09)
A lot of fun on the beach. Review by Thatonegoodman
Took this mask to the Caribbean and had a lot of fun. Easy to download the pics and vids, even to the photo station on the cruise ship where I checked my results daily. I had no problems with water seeping in where it shouldn't be. It would be improved by providing a better seal. I have other masks with a pressure valve under the nose, that would help. I also had problems with the mask fogging up more than other masks I have used under the same conditions? What about a snorkel keeper? I had trouble determining if I was... on or off, ... in picture mode or video mode. These indicators could be more obvious. Thanks, great idea, I enjoyed it a lot. (Posted on 6/5/09)
Well made, does what it's designed to do and is great fun Review by Meany-head father
I purchased the liquid image mask for xmas for my 8yr old daughter and tried it today for the first time, after installing some memory. Overall it's well constructed and for what it's designed to do it does it well. The images were clear and easy to create, even for a first-time underwater shooter like myself.
Only a few minor gripes, largely through the eyes of someone wanting more from a surface mask:
1. The indicator light is not always visible or is hard to see underwater
2. The strap tends to loosen when putting the mask on
3. The mask tends to fog up more than normal (after applying saliva then rinsing)
4. I didn't see it anywhere in the instructions (and it may well be), but 3 quick audible beeps while pressing the record/shutter button indicates the memory is full
5. The video frame rate is a bit jerky (slow)
6. A CCD rather than CMOS would be more suited to underwater lighting conditions especially when shooting videos (and allows a higher frame rate)
7. The power and shutter/shoot buttons should be well separated, preferably with the power button on the left and shutter/shoot button on the right.
8. The built-in memory cannot be accessed if a memory card is installed
9. 5 metres is a little shallow, even for snorkeling, so you're often afraid to go to depths you normally would which is easy to forget, and thus you can feel quite limited. Can't wait to see the 35m model, though
Yes, the poor girl eventually got to use the mask! (Posted on 1/4/09)
