This week I’ve been messing around with the Vivitar DVR 914HD Action Cam.
The beauty of the Action Camera category is that you can capture moments and memories in environments that you would never dream of pulling out your traditional camera or smartphone. So that’s wet environments, dirty environments, sandy environments and on rugged terrain. So regardless of whether heli-skiing or country walks in the British elements is your bag then an Action Camera is a great shout.
The one I have been using this week is from Vivitar – a Californian company that have been specialising in optics and camera accessories for nearly 80 years. As well as coming with various mounts for your helmet, bike and an under-water casing – it will record videos in both full HD and 4K plus stills in 16MP.
One of the key benefits that this camera has over some of the competitors in the category – for the price – is that it has a preview screen. The little 2.4″ screen allows you to actually see what you are capturing and playback footage when you are on the go.
A nifty WiFi button allows you to connect the camera to an Apple or Android device. You can wirelessly control the camera from within the WiFi range and even put it into Time Lapse or Slo Mo mode.
The underwater housing is a real favourite of mine. Great for fun family snaps in the pool on hols and also loving it as a Doggie Cam. Here is a vid of the gorgeous Bella the Dog having her Bond Girl moment coming out of the water.
