ParaLenz Is The First Action Camera Built From The Ground Up For Divers

Action cameras for land action are a dime a dozen, but when it comes to below the water surface, it is really far and few between. That is not say there aren’t any. There are, but most of them are not design from the ground up to deal with underwater conditions and the optics aren’t optimized for underwater imaging. To be fair, they still get the job done, but maybe just not the way divers may have liked. Then ParaLenz came along. What makes ParaLenz stands out is, it actually involved no less 250 divers from around the world in the design process, addressing aspects like size, mounts, placement of buttons, and also digging into the wants of divers with regards to a diving camera. And the result is what you see here, a Red Dot 2017 award-winning ParaLenz. Continue reading ParaLenz Is The First Action Camera Built From The Ground Up For Divers

BodyWorn Is Probably The Coolest Police Body Camera We Have Seen

Body worn camera has been implemented in police forces for a while now, but this, the BodyWorn Police Body Camera from Utility, Inc., is probably the coolest, purpose-designed wearable camera we have seen thus far.

The camera lens peeks out of a window, providing a seamless look. Though granted, it may not be the best level of view and may fail to capture the suspect or victim’s head or facial features when in close proximity.
