Swann ActionCam camcorder

Swann has launched a small and lightweight camcorder designed for capturing footage during extreme sports. The Swann ActionCam is ideal for skiers and snowboarders as well as offroad cyclists.

Swann says the ActionCam has been specifically designed for "high impact, high intensity, extreme sports" and can withstand vibrations and knocks and bumps.

The 60g camcorder measures 90x30x30mm and attaches to the side of a helmet or the frame of a bike. It records to the 2GB MicroSD memory card that comes with the device.

Simply eject the card from the camcorder and insert into your PC's card reader to transfer and watch the footage you recorded. Alternatively use the camcorder's USB port.

Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, Swann says users will get 90 minutes use from one charge. The ActionCam also features a weather-resistant anti-corrosive casing and a built-in microphone for sound recording.

The Swannn ActionCam comes bundled with a helmet strap, bicycle mount and a mount with suction cup. It is priced at £89.99 and available from Maplin.
