Oregon ATC2K Action Cam
Oregon Scientific has just revealed the latest version of its unique helmet camera. The ATC2K is intended for capturing video in high-intensity sports and is deliberately toughened against hostile conditions: the mountable camera can stay immersed in up to 10 feet of water for its entire battery life and will even survive the shocks of a cyclist's or snowboarder's fall, Oregon says. Video is recorded in DV format to either 32MB of built-in flash storage or an SD card, preventing the video from skipping in rough movement. The resulting footage can either be relayed directly to a TV through a bundled RCA cable as well as transferred to a Mac or PC through USB. Oregon now sells the ATC2K for $130 (helmet not included).
