The Oregon Scientific ATC9K HD Action Camera has the ability to shoot HD quality video underwater up to 20 m in stunning 1080p letting you get some incredible footage of your next reef excursion. From initial appearances, this looks to be a pretty small camera and could be quite handy for taking some top-down, underwater videos of your corals. Another fun option would be to mount it in your tank and get some great footage of your fish in hi-def action. With the IR remote control, you should be able to stop and start shooting even through the glass.
The ATC9K is also loaded with goodies for the hardcore adventurer in you. The camera is integrated with a G meter and GPS so you can see exactly how hard a hit you took when you jumped out of the screaming boat and in case you forgot where you landed, the GPS will mark your location so you can share it on Google Maps.
The unboxing of this beauty can be seen over at Engadget but unfortunately no pricing is available despite the fact the camera is rumored to be shipping very shortly. As the original report notes, all of the video demos have their audio replaced by awful music, meaning the camera possibly has a poor microphone or simply has none at all. That’s OK since “oohs and ahs” don’t translate very well underwater. Check out a demo video after the break.
