Capture all the action with this MHD Action Camera from Monoprice!
This camera boasts a full, high-definition 1920x1080p display with 24-bit color depth at 30 frames per second. It can also be set to capture at the lower 1280x720p, 24-bit resolution with 30 fps. It features an ultra-wide 120° field of view, so you can really get up close and personal with your shots.
The camera is waterproof to depths up to 10 meters without a separate outer enclosure. It is also shock, dust, and freeze proof, all features that are necessary in an extreme sports action camera. A waterproof microphone allows you to capture the entire audio/video experience. A two-axis gyroscopic sensor ensures that the video maintains the proper orientation.
The camera weighs only 3.9 ounces and measures 3 3/4" long, 1 7/8" high, and 1 1/2" wide. It comes with a mounting bracket and can also be mounted onto a standard 1/4"x20 threaded mount, giving you maximum flexibility in how you use it.
A one-touch slide switch is used to start and stop recordings. The switch is about 1" long by 3/8" wide, so you can easily start and stop a recording without having to remove your gloves.
A locking and removable cap on the rear of the unit gives access to the resolution selection switch (FHD or HD), the hardware reset button, the micro-SD card slot, which can accommodate a card up to 32GB size, the mini-B USB port for charging and data sync, and a Micro HDMI® port for direct video output to an HDTV. The internal battery has sufficient charge to allow up to 3 hours of continuous recording and up to 6 hours of standby mode.
In addition to being used as a video camera, the MHD Action Camera is also a 5 megapixel still camera. A large button on the top of the unit is used to snap pictures in Single Photo, Burst, and Time Lapse modes with 24-bit color depth.
The camera has plug and play operation and is automatically recognized as a storage device by Windows and Mac® computers. Integrated software can be installed to a Mac or Windows PC to allow access to the internal settings. The software is compatible with Windows XP SP3 or later or Mac OS X® 10.5 or later.
Note: Windows Media Player sometimes has trouble reading the audio stream of the .MOV files created by this camera. If you experience trouble, try installing and using the Apple QuickTime® Player or the freeware VLC Media Player instead.
