A quick post today, and a little off topic. I have been having a blast with my new POV camera. No, I did not go with the GoPRO – just couldn’t justify the price. No, I went with something much cheaper – the Jakks Pacific Action Shot Camera.
What is the Action Shot Camera?
The Action Shot Camera is actually more of a system that just one product. The most basic is the $49.95 camera I got. No screen, but it does come with a helmet mount and another mount so you can put the Action Shot Camera on your bike…or really anything else.
The Action Shot is great for those POV shots. I love doing live action third person shooters with Nerf Guns. The other thing which is great with the Action Shot Camera is riding your bike and doing some jumps. It is very easy to operate and the battery will go for about 2 hours.
What if You Want an LCD Screen?
My friend said he liked the Action Shot Camera, but the lack of LCD screen to review what he just recorded was a deal breaker. Well, little did he know you can buy any LCD screen attachment for just $20. Very cool, if you want the LCD – you can buy it, but for people like me who don’t need it, we save $20.
They also make a number of different attachments – waterproof, shockproof, etc.
