Swann Releases Swann Freestyle HD™ - 1080p High Definition Wearable Action Video Camera with LCD Viewer
- Created on 01 February 2012
The new wearable action video camera from Swann is perfect for capturing every legendary moment of adventure packed activity
Swann, a global leader in security monitoring solutions, proudly presents its first high definition wearable video camera: Swann Freestyle HD. The Swann Freestyle HD debuts with a high quality detachable LCD viewer, placing the Swann Freestyle HD ahead of the rest. Whether capturing 1080p video with up to 3x digital zoom or snapping JPEG images with its 8MP camera, Swann Freestyle HD lets you capture stunning hands-free video and share it with the world.
Housed in a sturdy case that is waterproof to 20 metres, Swann Freestyle HD can be worn on the body or mounted to bikes, cars, helmets, skateboards and more via a range of included interchangeable mounts and brackets. In addition, the Swann Freestyle HD can be used as a standard point & shoot camera, featuring both single shot and continuous mode picture taking. Video is shot in stunning professional-grade 1080p HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), boasting 30 fps, 3x digital zoom and stereo audio. Swann has also included a wireless remote control that lets users operate the camera while it’s mounted and out of arms reach. The camera also features a laser function for you to know when the camera is filming without having to look for a flashing light.
Real-time viewing is made possible by the detachable 4cm LCD screen, so you immediately see if you’ve captured the shot. Swann Freestyle HD also allows you to watch your footage afterwards on an HDTV via an HDMI cable or you can transfer your recording to the computer via a MicroSD card or the included USB cable for editing or sharing on social media networks. The Lithium-ion battery is also rechargeable via USB, giving users up to 2.5 hours of recording time per charge.
“The predecessor to our Swann Freestyle HD, the Swann Sportscam, proved to be a huge success”
remarked Jeremy Stewart, Swann’s VP Global Marketing. “We have listened to our consumers who told us they wanted a similar form factor but 1080p high definition video quality. In addition to the video quality, we are sure our consumers will love the Swann Freestyle HD’s LCD viewer, waterproof case, mounting accessories and more.”
