Living on 100 acres of woods, my son and grandchildren are always outside with the horses, shooting targets, riding 4 wheelers, or just hiking out to the cabin. I’m not always free to be outside with them, but now they can share it all with me by capturing the adventure with Action Shot Camera. The Action Shot Camera is a portable mini-camera designed to capture the first person point of view of all the spills and thrills of action and adventure-seeking sports buffs that enjoy action sports like skating, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, BMX, motocross and much more.
We reviewed the following from JAKKS Pacific:
Action Shot Camera – Retails for $49.99, but is currently on sale for $29.99 with free shipping.
Deluxe Mounting Kit – Retails for $24.99, but is currently on sale for $19.99 with free shipping.
Capture and share the action anywhere, with the Action Shot POV Camera! Attach to your helmet, bike, skateboard and more with the easy Click & Grip™ mounting system. Easy on-the-go interface means you can record POV footage and photos of all the action with just a few clicks. Upload your footage and photos to any computer (Mac or PC) with the included USB connection, then edit your greatest triumphs – or fails – with the included video editing software!
The camera can easily be worn on the head with the strap attachment. The mounting kit can be used to attach the camera to a bicycle or scooter handle bars, or in our case attached to the 4 wheeler. My son went for a ride this morning and shot this video for me.
The video quality is pretty good, but one thing we found is that the vibration of riding through the woods was a bit much for the camera at higher speeds. The picture quality deteriorated above 10 mph. It works much better on a more smooth surface.
One of the big draws of Action Shot Camera is how quick and easy it is to use. It literally takes minutes to assemble and go. A simple push of a button lets turn the camera on and off. Another push of a button lets you change the settings for picture or VGA and QVGA video. Internal memory lets you store up to 1500 images, like the one below.
Action Shot Camera Includes:
Click & Grip™ Protective/Mounting Case
128MB of Onboard Memory
MicroSD Card Slot to Expand Memory
Mini USB to USB Connector & Charger
Rechargeable Lithium Polymer Battery
My son is probably more excited about this camera than my grandchildren. He thinks it will be perfect to wear while hunting and fishing. When he get’s a big catch, he’s always so disappointed that it wasn’t captured on film. With the Action Shot Camera he’ll be able to share every exciting moment with us.
