Saying that my son is adventurous is sort of an understatement. He loves anything that can make him go faster. Along those lines, he loves watching his antics on video more. When he was 3 or 4 he would take my old iPod outside and make movies of himself running at full speed through the yard so when he got a chance to try out the Action Shot Camera he was practically drooling! He loves that he can share them with his friends too. Additionally, it helped us open up a conversation about safety, what kinds of things are appropriate to make a video of and sharing online.
As we opened the package, we were both amazed by the size of it. It was a lot smaller than we thought it would be. We also received a mounting case, adhesive mount, a helmet mounting strap and a dongle(connects to a computer for charging and downloading photos and video).
Downloading the videos to your computer is super simple too! You just plug it in USB to your computer and it begins downloading. For even more awesomeness, you can download the Action Shot App for easy editing of your clips.
What we loved about the Action Shot Camera:
I loved that it was small and durable. He loved that it came with a helmet strap, so that he wouldn’t have to think about it while riding his bike and motorcycle or sledding. He also plans on taking it fishing this spring so that the whole family can share in the joy he gets when he makes that big catch. I am excited by the fact that he can edit and download the videos himself. It puts the creative power in his hands and he likes being able to say he made the video all by himself. Furthermore, he finds uses for it all over the place. He even wore it Christmas morning so that he could record himself opening his presents hands free!!
