Tiny RePlay XD720 will replace the XD480 in company's lineup
RePlay has just detailed the latest addition to its action camera range with the XD720. The company is calling it the lightest (2 oz) and smallest (about the size of lip balm) HD action camera on the market, comparing it to the dimensions of lip balm, saying it can even attach to sunglasses. As the name suggests, it can record 720p resolution video at either 30 or 60fps.
Its launch also means the RePlay XD480 will be discontinued. The successor is made of aluminum and is water-resistant. The recording time is set at up to two hours, with a microSD memory card slot that can support capacities of up to 32GB.
The sensor is a five-megapixel unit and the 120-degree field of view doesn't distort the images recorded by the camera, like in competitors. The built-in mic is complemented by an external audio line-in for adding remote microphones as well.
Pricing is set at $200, with a ballistic carrying case, 4GB microSD memory card, card reader, adapter, car charger, safety leash, and two mounts included.
