I was chosen to try out the new Action Shot Camera that enables you to catch extreme action shots while participating in various sports. After several rough outtakes and camera mounting blunders, we finally came up with a little action footage to share.
Since most of my action this season consists of uneventful visits at the gym, I needed a guinea pig for my review. After all, who wants to see boring footage of me heavy breathing on the Crossfit machine at the gym watching silent TV with captions? Or maybe the big gorillas in the back clanking weights and trying to draw attention to their physiques, while deterring the ladies with their sweaty faces and animal-like grunting? I’m thinking nobody.
Fortunately, I wrangled up my friend’s 14 year old son to try out the camera while demonstrating his skateboarding prowess. After all, the Action Shot Camera is supposed to get the extreme shots you can’t take with a regular camera, and skateboarding seemed like an apt fit for the experiment. The video footage is shown from the camera mounted to the front of the skateboard to give you a bit of perspective.
Here’s what we came up with (Take 6, because we were all rookies):

Now for the more technical features of the Action Shot Camera…
The Action Shot Camera is a portable mini-camera designed to capture the first person point of view of all the spills and thrills of action and adventure-seeking sports buffs that enjoy action sports like skating, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, BMX, motocross and much more. Simply attach the Action Shot Camera to skateboards, bikes or helmets with the secure mounting system to record the most exciting thrills (and spills!) footage.
The Action Shot Camera has upgradeable memory to record your wild feats and then upload the footage through the built-in USB port to share (and shock!) your family and friends so they can experience your adventures! (SRP: $49.99, Ages 7+). If a picture is worth a thousand words, then your Action Shot videos will be worth millions! Don’t miss the opportunity to share high-def shots of your stunts online with the HD Action Shot™ Camera! (SRP: $99.99, Ages 7+)
Admittedly, although some skill was required in the mounting process, we had a lot of fun making the video and look forward to making videos of other extreme sport lovers in the future.
