VholdR – The Big Little Camera
by Mark R
It appears that in the world of video cameras, small is the new big. I suppose we all want our cameras to be smaller, and this VholdR camera may be one of the smallest out there. (Although I’m pretty sure it is not the smallest.)
Still, its pretty tiny at 3.7 inches in length and 4.8 ounces in weight. It shoots 640 x 480 video footage at 30fps, and stores it all on microSD card.
All of this made possible by a fine line compression engine, as well as a 192 degree rotating lens. The lens itself has a twin laser alignment, and the whole thing is splashproof and shockproof in an aluminium enclosure. Not only is it durable, but there is some serious shake management action going on inside the software front to make certain your pictures are clean.
The VholdR also has a Trail Mount Interface that I can only assume is designed for those who want to put their cameras on their helmets for some extreme adventures. Since this little VholdR guy is durable, it certainly seems like it could take it. However, I believe that this camera is truly built with the YouTube generation in mind, and allows you to upload your videos very easily.
Maybe it’s just me, but every time some smaller camera comes out, I always have this terrible fear of a “Big Brother Is Watching You” society. However, I’m beginning to wonder if Big Brother is even an issue anymore with the age of YouTube. I suppose we want to be watched. You should be able to pick up the VholdR around Christmas time, for a price of $349.99.
