Drift Innovation X170 action camera unveiled

If you frequent YouTube or other video sites online there is a plethora of videos out there that are from action sports fans that video themselves doing stunts and tricks. I like the ones where some cocky person tries a trick only to wipe out and catch it on video.

A new camera for this type of video fan has turned up called the X170 Action Camera. The camera is a rugged device that comes with mounting options that will allow the user to attach it to a helmet, goggle strap, handlebars, and other locations. The camera can record full motion 30 fps video in 720 x 480 resolution.

It can also capture 5MP still shots and has a wireless remote with a range of 5 meters. A small 1.5-inch LCD screen is built in for watching recorded video. Storage is 32MB and the camera gets power from a pair of AA batteries. A SD card slot is built-in for memory expansion. The lens can also be rotated 300-degress to align the best shot for the mounting location.
