TomTom Bandit Action Camera
TomTom has launched an all new action camera with a built-in media server, which eliminates the need to download footage before being able to edit it.
The TomTom Bandit Action camera is equipped with in-camera motion and GPS sensors to automatically find and tag moments based on speed, altitude, G-force, acceleration and with the use of an additional accessory you can even track heart rate.
It works with a smartphone app, meaning that footage can be reviewed instantly. In editing mode, a simple shake of the phone creates the movie. You can then make changes, add music and overlays of favourite metrics, such as speed, before sharing with friends.
It has a wide angle lens, high-end 16 MP CCD sensor and a powerful processor. It produces video at various resolutions, including: 1080p30, 1080p60, 720p60 and 720p120.
It is also completely waterproof, eliminating the need for an additional bulky case – an additional lens cap accessory is required to be waterproof up to 50 metres. The steel ring mounting system has a quick release mechanism and the low profile of the TomTom Bandit looks great on a helmet.
The uniquely designed Batt-Stick combines the long lasting battery, microSD card and SuperSpeed USB 3.0. It plugs directly into a computer via USB to charge and download footage, removing the need for additional cables or adaptors.
A premium pack will also be available in June including additional accessories – priced £379.99. There will be a wide range of accessories available to purchase separately.
The smartphone app available on iOS only at launch. An Android version of the app will be available soon.
“We took a simple, but radical approach to solving the editing problem,” says Slobodan Stanisic, lead engineer, TomTom. “With all existing action cameras you first need to download gigabytes of footage to a powerful PC, a process that can take a long time. Then you need to find the highlights, put together a story and format it. We know this often takes hours. Not with the TomTom Bandit. We have designed a camera where the footage is processed on the camera itself, making the editing process far easier and much faster.”
