Cool Gadget For Casual Photos: The Mask Cam
By Jason Heller, January 1, 2008 @ 02:00 AM (EST)


Editor's Note: This is a cool gadget for the "I need to always have a camera with me all the time" photographer. The Underwater Digital Camera Mask is for casual ambient light shots. At 5MP, maybe someone will figure out how to jerry-rig a small strobe to this mask for some pretty interesting possibilities. Hopefully we'll get a unit to review to see how it works. Granted, it's manufactured by a toy company, but for $99, this is a pretty cool gadget that I'd take to the water park or white water rafting with friends (yes, I'm THAT guy, always with a camera handy).

Sacramento, CA., December 6, 2007 – Liquid Image is releasing the 5.0 MP Digital Underwater Camera Mask at the 2008 CES show in Las Vegas January 7th – 10th.

The Liquid Image Digital Underwater Camera Mask allows swimmers to record underwater photos and video hands free. Whether it is backyard pool fun or stunning fish and coral from a special vacation, users will enjoy the combination of a camera and mask in one while swimming. The benefits include a hands free experience for easier and safer swimming. Other underwater cameras require the user to hold the camera while swimming to photograph their underwater adventures.

To take a photo or a video, the user lines up the crosshair marks on the mask with the object, and then presses the capture button. LED lights inside the viewing area indicate the mode the camera is in when activated. Users can download the digital images and video they’ve captured to a computer through a USB cable. Software is included to edit photos and videos. Users can print or email the files to share with friends.
