Twenty20 VholdR Camera
- Product Review (submitted on December 16, 2008):
I recently purchased my VholdR a few months ago and couldn't be happier. Before the winter settled in I took it out dirtbiking, but as of late I've gotten the snowboarding bug so it's been all powder for me. I can honestly say that the VholdR is an excellent piece of recording technology!
Incredibly durable and built to withstand any weather condition or element (dirt, sand, etc.), the VholdR is like an armored vehicle weighing in at under 5 ounces. Video quality is impressive for its size (640x480, 30 fps) and it has a built-in microphone. Plus it is very easy to operate while you're out riding & wearing gloves.
What really sold me on the VholdR were two main features that other POV cameras don't have: a dual laser positioning system and rotating lens. Basically, the dual lasers will show you exactly where the camera is pointing so you'll never have to cross reference or second guess (or, worse yet, come back after a long ride to realize you were pointing at the dirt the entire time). The rotating lens allows you to mount to camera on either side, so that it can mount pretty much anywhere you want!
I don't do product reviews often, but when I do, it's because I truly believe in the product. I highly recommend the VholdR!
