by Mark R
Since Photokina, the world’s leading trade fair for digital photography and creative imaging, is in full swing now, I have hearing about new cameras right and left. Cisco Systems is no exception as they have updated the UltraHD and MinoHD camera series.
The UltraHD 1 Hour has about 4GB of storage, which is good for one hour worth of video. It has a resolution of 1,280 x 720 (30fps) and format of H.264 (MP4). The LCD screen is 2 inches with a resolution of 320 x 240. It has a mini-HDMI out, and runs on AA-size batteries. It is available in white, magenta, blue, or personalized color for $149.99.
As for the UltraHD 2 Hour, it has 8GB of storage for double the time of the UltraHD 1 Hour. All the other specs of the 2 Hour are the same as the 1 Hour, except the 2 Hour has a Flip Port/Micro-HDMI out as well as a removable rechargeable battery or AAA-size batteries. It is available in black, white, or personalized for about $199.99.
Specs for the UltraHD are also similar to the new MinoHD cameras. The MinoHD 1 Hour has 4GB for 1 hour of video. The exception is that it has 1,280 x 720 resolution (60fps) with image stabilization, and has a non-removable rechargeable battery good for 1.5 hours. It comes in silver or personalized color for $179.99.
As for the MinoHD 2 Hour, it has 8GB and the same specs as the MinoHD 1 Hour. It is in black or personalized for about $229.99.
