Sacramento, CA., and Las Vegas, PMA -- Liquid Image released a High Definition Scuba Series Camera/Video Mask at the 2009 CES which will be on display at PMA, Level 1, Booth K241.
The Liquid Image SCUBA SERIES HD320 Camera/Video Mask allows scuba divers to capture underwater photos and High Definition digital video hands free. The HD video is 720P (1280 x 720) and records at a rate up to 30 frames per second with audio. The camera mode features a 5 MP (2560 x 1920) still image.
Each Camera Mask will be tested and certified to a depth rating of 35 meters / 115 ft during production. This new model has adjustable light attachments available to help bring out the color and detail that is generally lost while diving below 5 meters. Large lever style buttons allow for greater dexterity while wearing diving gloves. A darker silicon skirt helps to shield the peripheral vision from distraction, while still permitting the LED light indicator to signal the user when recording photos and videos.
To take a photo or a video, the diver lines up the crosshair marks on the mask with the object, and then presses the capture button. LED lights inside the viewing area indicate the mode the camera is in when activated. The digital images and video may be downloaded to a computer through the High Speed USB cable provided, or through a Micro SD/SDHC card.
The camera comes with 64 MB Nand Flash internal memory. A Micro SD/SDHC Card slot allows the memory to be upgraded to 32 GB. Every 1 GB of memory added allows approximately 30 minutes of recorded video.
US and International distribution is set for spring 2009.
SRP - Estimated at $250 US
