Recently there have been several new wearable camcorders that have been unveiled. Not long ago the GoPro HD Hero2 broke cover and today Swann is unveiled a new wearable camcorder that looks a lot like that GoPro called the Freestyle HD. This little camera has a waterproof enclosure that will resist water down to 65-feet. It also has an LCD on the back so you can see what you are shooting.
The lack of an LCD is one thing that I have long missed on my GoPro. The Freestyle HD also has 1080p resolution and 3x digital zoom. It will shoot 8MP images and is designed to be mounted to cars, surfboards, motorcycles, bikes and a lot more. It appears that all the mounts are adhesive style though. That might be a deal breaker to some folks.
I refuse to use adhesive mounts on my car. The LCD on the rear is a 1.5-inch model and the battery inside is USB rechargeable lithium-ion unit. Video storage is to a microSD card. The battery is good for 2.5 hours of recording per charge. It comes with a remote control and more. The camera sells for $279.99 and can be purchased right now.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
