Introducing the New Liquid Image Scuba Series HD Wide Angle 322
The Wide Angle Scuba Series HD is an integrated dive mask/camera that records HD 720P video (1280x720) at 30fps along with 5.0MP still images. The depth rating on this new model is 40m/130ft, which covers depths reached by certified recreational divers. The mask has a micro SD/SDHC card slot and comes with a 4GB micro SD card. The memory can expand up to 32GB, to record thousands of still images or approximately 16 hrs of video. The camera operates on 4 x AAA Batteries. Estimated Lithium battery performance is 2000 still images or 2hrs of video.
The mask features lever style buttons which are easy to press while wearing diving gloves. To record a photo or a video, simply turn on the camera, choose the mode, then press the shutter button. LED lights inside the mask indicate the mode to the user. The buttons are positioned along the upper right corner of the frame and area easy to access. The goggle lenses are made of tempered glass and have integrated crosshairs that help you to line up shots.
The new wide angle will solve the issue of not completely framing the subject which some first time Camera Mask users have experienced with the original 54 degree lens. The wider angle POV camera will capture a larger field of view and therefore allow the user to think even less about operating the camera while snorkeling or scuba diving.
Downloading images is as easy as plugging in the mask to your PCs or Macs USB port (USB/Component cable provided) and pressing the power button. TV playback is also possible through the USB/Component cable. The included optional software (PC only) allows you to edit your content. A microSD/SDHC card slot allows you to add memory up to 16GB currently and expected to accommodate up to 32GB (when available) for additional pictures or videos.
Requires four AAA batteries (included) and MicroSD Card (4GB included). Ages 13 and up.
