I love being outdoors!
Since I arrived to the United States, 4 years ago, I started exploring, going on hikes, skating or biking in Orange County. I have always enjoyed taking photos of everything I do and every beautiful place that I visit during my adventures. However, taking photos during my adventures was a problem. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scratched the screen of my smartphone trying to take pictures while I’m hiking with friends or how many times I’ve dropped my phone in dust, water and mud.
After getting tired of scratching the screen on my phone, or having to run to the store to get my phone fixed, I decided to get an Action Cam.
Action cameras like the GoPro, sell for approximately $300-$400, the Sony Action Cam can range for about $250 and so on… For the most part, they all have many similarities with a few different features. They’re compact, resistant and easy to use. They’re really good at capturing HD video, some even offer different types of mounting accessories to make it easier to use when you are outdoors enjoying your favorite activities.
I honestly love all of the options, but the only thing I don’t enjoy is the price range. It’s a big investment for a person who isn’t very intense about her sports activities. The thought of purchasing an expensive action cam, then damaging it due to a spontaneous activity can hurt just a tad bit. I wanted to experiment with a an action cam before I took a big leap. That’s when I found a great option, the MHD SPORTS WiFi Action Cam.
The MDH SPORTS WiFi Action Cam is an amazing option for those who are always looking for a good deal. It’s not only affordable but also takes decent video. Good enough to share with friends, on Youtube or Facebook.
This is what you get:
Here I share with you some of the specifications from Monoprice:
This compact camera features a 1/2.5″ 5.0 megapixel CMOS sensor. It is capable of recording full motion H.264 video at 1080p at 30 frames per second or at the lower 1280x720p resolution at a full 60 fps. It also supports an intermediate 1280x960p mode at 30 fps. In addition to video recording it is a 5.0 megapixel digital camera with the ability to take individual still shots, take a burst of 10 shots in rapid succession, or continuously taking single shots at intervals from 1 ~ 60 seconds for classic time-lapse videos.
A significant feature is the ability to communicate with a connected smartphone using Wi-Fi. In this manner you can view videos and still shots on your smartphone without removing the camera’s microSD card (up to 32GB, not included). The camera can be controlled directly or remotely using the included wrist strap remote control. The remote uses RF to communicate with the camera, so it doesn’t need to be pointed in any particular direction to work.
The camera comes with a number of mounting accessories, the most significant of which is the Waterproof Case. When enclosed in the waterproof case, the camera can be used in fresh or sea water at depths up to 196 feet (60 meters). The included accessories allow you to mount the waterproof case to a flat or curved surface, or to a standard 1/4″-20 threaded UNC mount (i.e., tripod mount). Additional accessories, including chest and head mounting straps, are sold separately.
The camera features a small LCD status display, which shows the recording mode, the number of recordings already made, and menu prompts for changing the camera’s settings. It is powered using a single SLB-10A lithium-ion battery (included). The SLB-10A is a commonly used camera battery, making it an easy matter to find additional or replacement batteries. It also features 256MB internal flash memory, so you can take a limited number of test shots without needing to install a microSD card.
