Pyle Audio has launched a new action camera, called eXpo HD, which features a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor, full HD video recording, and built-in WiFi.
The summer vacation is coming to the northern hemisphere and those who like action sports need some means to immortalize all their adventures. Sales of action cameras have increased in recent times and they are mostly driven by the popularity of the GoPro Hero shooters. However, there are other manufacturers out there who are doing a good job, while providing gear at more affordable prices.
The latest in a long series of action cameras is the new Pyle Audio eXpo HD that offers a rather interesting specifications list.
Pyle eXpo HD action camera becomes official with 20-megapixel sensor and full HD video recording
Pyle Audio is mostly manufacturing car and home audio products, but the company has also started making gear for outdoor activities. In order to fit this “job description”, the maker has launched the Pyle eXpo HD action camera that is regarded as the “perfect companion” for photographers and videographers who are fond of action sports.
All these fun activities alongside friends and family must be recorded in high quality, therefore the 20-megapixel CMOS sensor of the eXpo HD will make sure that your memories will look good when you arrive at home.
Actions sports call for video recording, so the camera is capable of capturing full HD video at up to 60 frames per second. However, the frame rate can be decreased down to 50fps, 30fps, or 25fps.
The device is said to feature “4x zoom”, but the company has not specified whether this is optical or digital. The former would be better in terms of optical quality, but it is more likely for the camera to offer only digital zooming capabilities.
Built-in WiFi allows users to remotely control the Pyle eXpo HD camera
The Pyle eXpo HD action camera specs list continues with a 2-inch LCD touchscreen on the back, allowing users to review shooting settings.
This device is packing integrated WiFi. As a result, smartphone users take control over the camera and record videos remotely while using their phone’s display in Live View mode.
Pyle Audio has revealed that the ISO sensitivity can be set manually between 100 and 1,600, although an “Auto” option is available, too.
Photos and videos are stored on a microSD card of up to 32GB. On the other hand, the energy is supplied by a rechargeable Li-ion battery which lasts up to a couple of hours of video recording.
Waterproof casing makes the action camera resistant to depths of 190 feet
Pyle’s new eXpo HD action camera measures only 2.6 x 1.9 x 1.3-inches. However, its dimensions can increase if the users decide to put some accessories on the shooter.
Depending on your favorite activity, Pyle Audio is offering a waterproof casing, helmet mount, bike mount, and armband mount among others. The waterproof case is the most exciting of them all as it supports depths down to 190 feet.
Either way, more information can be found at the company’s website, where the Pyle eXpo HD action camera can be purchased for $249.99. It is worth noting that most of the accessories are included in the package, so you will not have to pay extra money for them.
