New HD Action Camera Adds GPS To The Mix

Aspiring outdoor filmmakers have a new gadget to add to their bag of tricks. The GPS HD Action camera from GoBandit is designed to be used in rough conditions, eschewing a hard drive or tape storage in favor of built in flash memory and the ability to use SD cards to capture all of our adventure pursuits. The camera is also water proof, and can take 5 megapixel still images as well.

But perhaps best of all, it has an onboard GPS system that keeps track of your location while filming, while storing data on the route you took, the speed you traveled, and so on. That data can later be displayed on the video itself, which is captured at a resolution of 720p, while running at 30 frames per second.

Imagine using this to capture your latest mountain biking blowout. Not only will it allow you to share the exact location of your latest flip over your handlebars, it’ll be able to tell all of your friends exactly how fast you were going when you managed to face plant. That’ll make for some great YouTube videos I’m sure.

The camera is due out in April with an MSRP of $389, which isn’t half bad for all of the goodies it has inside. You can check out a teaser video of the camera in action below. Thanks to Engadget for the heads up.

  1. Now that seems like an awesome little camera. I was surprised it was for under $400. With everything on it seems like they'd be charging more. I'll be interested to see more footage from it once it is released.

  2. I agree Casey. Interesting little device. I like the rugged look to it, and it has some great options. Definitely something I'd be interested in playing with to replace my current camera.
