Capturing the Adventure
BRAUN SixZero Action Camera
Imagine being able to record and share your adventures, from a peaceful hike up a mountain where you are welcomed by a gorgeous sunset, to kayaking over waters so clear it is as if you were flying, to that paintball tournament where you scored the most hits. You can do so and more with an action camera.
Action cameras are in a league of their own. They are tough, durable, and compact without sacrificing performance. At a glance, they may all look the same, but do not let that fool you. Not all action cameras are created equal, and what sets the BRAUN SixZero apart from the rest is its complete package.
Most other action cameras may come with a waterproof enclosure and maybe a mount or two, while some comes with no accessories at all. This means you will have to purchase additional accessories in addition to the action camera, and soon the cost will pile up.
The BRAUN SixZero, however, comes with almost everything you need, including a rechargeable lithium battery, a clip-on external microphone with braided cable, a bike mount, a suction cup mount, a car mount, a helmet mount, a waterproof housing that can dive to the depth of 30m, an HDMI cable, a remote control, a USB cable, a pouch, and a charger. In short, it comes with everything you need to start recording your adventures – short of a micro SD card to store it all in.
One aspect of an action camera that most people neglect is its design. There are two basic designs for an action camera: wide and streamlined. A wide action camera has the advantage of being perfect for front mounting, for example, on a chest strap. The BRAUN SixZero has a streamlined design that is aerodynamic, which makes it perfect for mounting almost everywhere, for example, on top of a helmet or strapped at the side of the head.
Once mounted, an action camera will have to be activated and halted manually. This is easy if the camera is within reach. However, for those who want to mount their action camera in a more creative location, a remote control that could trigger the camera to take a photo or to initiate or stop video recording would be very useful. Thankfully, the BRAUN SixZero comes with one such weather-resistant remote as well.
To help frame shots, the BRAUN SixZero has a built-in 1.5-inch LCD display, which is quite an uncommon feature amongst action cameras. With certain action cameras, the LCD display is a separate module that would have to be purchased separately and would further add bulk and cost to the camera.
Finally, we must not forget the most important feature of an action camera: its performance. Low resolution, low frame rates, and stuttering and skipping are unacceptable for creating an action video that is immersive, even if it is only meant to be shared on online video streaming services or social networks. An action camera like the BRAUN SixZero could record up to 60 frames-per-second at a full HD resolution of 1080i, which means every moment is captured in high definition
The camera controls are easy to use, but a remote makes it so much easier.
The SixZero has a streamlined design that does not get in the way of the action.
Simple, sleek and complete.
