New helmet camera captures broadcast-quality video of recreational activities such as mountain biking, skiing and snowmobiling
MARQUETTE, MI – Viosport, the industry leader in point-of-view (P.O.V.) camera technology, has created the market’s most advanced helmet camera ¿ the Adventure Cam 3. The new Adventure Cam 3 allows adventure sports enthusiasts to capture their activities in broadcast-quality video by mounting the camera on their helmet or on a vehicle such as a mountain bike or snowmobile.
Viosport’s Adventure Cam 3 features the Sony Ex-View¿ CCD and is manufactured to be lightweight and rugged enough to work in varying climate conditions, while producing the highest resolution of any Viosport camera. In addition, the Adventure Cam 3 is designed to be simple to use and integrates with a wide variety of recording devices. Viosport’s patent-pending cable system allows for just two connections to a recording device, whereas other helmet cameras can have up to eight connections.
“The Adventure Cam 3 is a unique product in the sense that it provides broadcast-quality video at a consumer price,” says David Ollila, Viosport’s president and founder. “In addition, this camera system is simple to mount and carry with you whether you’re hucking a cliff on a mountain bike, cruising the highways on a motorcycle or capturing any other type of adventure.”
The Adventure Cam 3 is an evolution of Viosport’s popular Adventure Cam II. The specifics for this Viosport patent-pending system include: 520 TV line resolution, multiple lens options, quick connect cables, and several cabling choices. The camera weighs in at less than 4 ounces and users will also appreciate the smartly designed coiled cable that provides strain relief and keeps cord slack in check.
To capture all surroundings, Viosport has made five optional lenses available for the Adventure Cam 3. In addition, five levels of neutral density filters are available for shooting in bright conditions.
