The model acquired accepts up to 4GB SD cards (shown above). The Audio quality is less than perfect, when it's mounted to my at3k, it picks up basically whatever I say, and little else. When it's inside the LS scope, all audio is basically irrelevant. The Video quality seems quite acceptable, and once I finish editing the 10+ hours of video I recorded during Valhalla, you'll all get an opportunity to see the video quality for yourselves. The camera weighs about 1/2 a pound (with batteries) and did not negatively effect my ability to wield the blaster to which it was attached.
More pictures of the product:
I've installed the rear lens from the LS into the front so as to protect the camera lens in the highly unlikely event that a stefan with exposed BB were to strike the camera head on.
The hatch allows me to easily operate the device without the need to disassemble the scope. The buttons and operating screen (The camera does not possess a viewfinder) are quite durable. The hatch actually does more to try and make the apparatus look stock than anything else.
The rear lens is absent, and after cutting down the back end of the scope, allows me to exchange SD cards between a round without having to disassemble the device, which is fantastic.
I've quite a bit of video acquired while the Action Cam was mounted to my at3k, and when it was inside the LS scope (which creates a rather amusing image, of rounded corners, reminiscent of the opening to a James Bond movie.
For those interested; here is the model I acquired.
They have a few different models and bundled packs, for what that's worth.
It comes with multiple mounting implements, so one can easily mount the blaster to a helmet, use the Velcro straps, mounting bracket for a bicycle, rubber strap, the tri-pod (the model I have apparently will also function as a web-cam) or even create their own mounting implement.
If you are curious as to just how durable the device is, I suggest this video (located by Aimless)
Yes, I know the camera only weighs like 1/2 a pound, so its terminal velocity isn't going to be incredibly high, and it's landing on grass... but I'd be impressed to learn that most digital camcorder could take a fall from almost 2000 feet and not even flinch. I feel confident it can take a hit from a stefan and it would be fine.
I have acquired 3 4GB SD cards, allowing me to record roughly 6 hours of video at the highest frames/second and resolution. Switching cards every couple hours allows me to record effectively the entire war, though I admit that at least 1/3 of the video I recorded is of the clear blue sky...and not because I was looking for birds.
On the related topic of "Tools for Nerf Wars," and because it's definitly not worthy of its own thread, I'll post this instrument here:
Quite useful for organizing vast quantities of nerfers at a war; it's like herding cats whenever there are 60+ nerfers at a war.
