Oregon Scientific (yes, the same company that makes weather stations) just announced the ATC 9K all-weather outdoor video camera. If your travels regularly take you places where you’d like to record your antics, the ATC 9K could be considered to be the ultimate rugged device.
Inside the ATC 9K is a 5 megapixel photo / 1080p video sensor, a G-sensor, optional GPS receiver, LCD screen and remote control receiver. Mount this camera to your helmet, bike or surfboard and record the things people don’t believe you pulled off. Best of all, with the G-sensor, you can actually replay more than just the video of your adventures.
The camera records video in 1080p at 30 frames/second or 720p at 60 frames/sec. It features HDMI out, a built in laser pointer and a 135 degree lens. The ATC 9K is waterproof up to 20 feet and can survive drops up to 1.2 meters.
The $299 ATC 9K is available directly from Oregon Scientific, or you can try your luck by entering the ATC Action Cam contest over at Facebook. In the contest, you’ll enter to win a gift package worth $750 and you have till September 30th to submit your entry.
We hope to have a full review of this amazing camera here on Gadling as soon as we can get our hands on one!
