We will be featuring a review on the Rollei Actioncam 410 in the Autumn/Fall issue of the Paddler ezine but in the meantime the German camera brand has launched the latest in its action camcorder range with the new Actioncam 420.
The high-quality camera delivers 4K video at up to 10 frames per second to meet users’ appetite to be able to record in ultra HD as well as offering 2K recording at 30 frames per second.
The 420 is able to film wide-angle action shots with a recording angle of 170 degrees. It has been designed for a variety of outdoor activities; boasting water resistance of up to 40m with the included waterproof housing and, with a battery life of up to 120 minutes.
Jeremy Rother, UK Sales Manager at Rollei says, “With many extreme moments only happening once in a lifetime, it’s important to have a camcorder that’s not only reliable but also records in great quality. With our latest actioncam launching onto the UK market, we hope to inspire even more sports enthusiasts and ensure thrill seekers never miss the perfect moments from all their adventures.”
Rother continues, “With more and more homes now having a 4K high definition TV, we wanted to create a product that can make the most of these displays so extreme hobbyists can relive the moment time and time again in amazing quality.”
The action camcorder also offers a time-lapse function with up to 60 second intervals, as well as a slow motion and loop functions. The built-in WiFi has a range of up to 10m, allowing photographers to control the camera using the supplied wriststrap or even a smartphone or tablet. The Rollei app even allows viewing of live action or recorded images using a mobile or tablet.
The Actioncam 420 is supplied with the Rollei Safety Pad; a unique and patented mount which is designed to break free from a helmet in the event of a collision, greatly reducing the chance of injury to the user.
Available in blue, white and black, the Rollei Actioncam 420 comes with a number of accessories including; an underwater case for diving, rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and a wireless wrist remote for hand-free recording.
