Win a Cansonic HD Action Camera, worth R4 000

Date:14 November 2014

An action camera with all the bells and whistles, but without the heavy price tag, sounds almost unbelievable. Well, it’s true. Cansonic’s HD Action Camera – aside from capturing Full HD video and stereo sound – boasts so many features that you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Motion detection, for instance: that’s ideal for setting up the camera at a watering hole to film wildlife that might be scared off by humans. And impact detection, so you can record that parking-lot fender-bender that happened while you were gone.

It also measures g-forces (x, y, z axes), features a GPS so you can plot your position on Google Maps – and it’s a dashboard camera, too. Wi-Fi enables its use as a baby monitor, via your smartphone. Another neat feature: the time-lapse function, which allows you to compress scenes such as sunsets into 1-minute video clips.

With a 3,8 cm colour screen, waterproof housing (rated to 30 m), suction cup, bicycle attachment, various helmet mounts (flexible and otherwise), 12 V car charger and a 32 GB micro SD card, what’s not to like?
