I like motorsports and spend a fair bit of time racing on road courses, autox tracks, and the drag strip. When I go out it’s always nice to record the runs so I can compare them in the future to see if I am getting better or if any changes to the car made a difference in track times. I use a GoPro camera and have lamented the missing LCD on that tiny wearable camcorder on more than one occasion.
Swann has a new wearable camcorder that has debuted that looks a lot like the GoPro compete with an included waterproof case. The big difference is that the Freestyle HD has a small 1.5-inch LCD on the rear so you can see what you are recording. The camera records 1080p HD video and can shoot 8MP still shots too.
It lacks a car mount with a suction cup for motorsports, but comes with a number of adhesive mounts. I am not a fan of adhesive mounts on my car though. The camera also has stereo sound and 3x digital zoom. It comes with a remote to turn the camera on and off if, you can’t reach it. You can buy the Freestyle HD now for $279.99.Filed Under: Camera News, Gadgets News
