By Mel Fabrikant Tuesday, January 22, 2013, 04:03 PM EST
At the core of Bolt HD is a color camera that can record 1080p or Full HD high resolution video at real time or 12 MP still images. With a built in laser pointer, Bolt HD allows the user to confirm the camera is on target and ready to shoot. The protected lens allows the user to record more with a 135 degree angle lens. The Bolt HD has an included stereo microphone that enables audio recordings to not only see but hear the action. The device stores approximately 10 hours of video recordings on a removable MicroSD card (up to 32GB), so users can easily swap out cards while on the go. Bolt HD’s mini HDMI connection allows the user to connect right in to their home TV to relive the action in HD right away. Bolt HD is powered by a lithium-ion battery that recharges via USB and gives the user hours of life per charge.
Not only is the Bolt HD shockproof, but it’s also waterproof up to 32’. Equipped with a number of mounting options, Bolt HD is an ideal solution for a variety of sports and outdoor applications. With no dials, gauges, knobs or any preferences to configure, users simply turn it on, strap it on and hit record.
Bolt HD Features Include:
• Record professional high definition action videos at 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) in real time (30fps) with stereo audio
• Use the laser pointer to check the camera is on target and shoot in any conditions with waterproof casing to 32ft below the surface
• Relive the action in high definition with mini HDMI connection
