Adventure videographers know how disappointing and frustrating it is when their Point-of-View (POV)/action cameras fail to record their latest stunts or experiences.
The Xplore camera, designed with adventure video photography enthusiasts in mind, eliminates this all-too-common problem.
What makes the Xplore camera unique is the watch accessory, which is included with each camera. The watch has a 1 3/8-inch LED screen that displays in real time the video that is being recorded. It is also a remote, allowing users to start and stop recording and snap pictures with a click of a button. One watch can even control up to six cameras.
The 16-megapixel camera records video at 1080p at 60 fps, and the photo bursts feature takes 7 shots per second. If the 1 GB internal memory isn’t enough, there’s a port for a MicroSD card. The compact, lightweight and rugged camera is waterproof up to 60 meters.
“The Xplore camera has similar specs as other high-end HD POV cameras on the market but at a fraction of the cost,” said Ben Skidmore, Partner of Xplore Video. “And with the watch, there’s no more pressing record and hoping that the camera is recording; it gives you live visual confirmation.”
With Wi-Fi capability, users also can upload their videos and photos to social media sites with an Apple or Android app designed specifically for Xplore.
"The action-camera market is ripe for another POV camera; consumers prefer to have a choice. The Xplore camera is a serious contender, where quality meets affordability," said Greg Hetrick, Xplore Video Partner. "Beyond extreme sports, the camera is suitable for many other applications from film students to space."
The Xplore camera is currently only available through its Indiegogo campaign.
Xplore Video is offering perks at different contribution levels in the Indigogo campaign. Early adopters can even get the Xplore camera and watch at up to 40 percent off the retail price of $299. Quantities are limited at each tier, so the earlier you contribute, the more savings you’ll get.
