CamOne Infinity brings interchangeable lenses to the action video camera market

New, 1 comment

The CamOne Infinity action video camera supports 1080p video at 30fps and 720p at 60fps, but what's unique is that it has an interchangeable lens system. The company says it'll soon offer both a 142 degree and 96 degree lens option to accompany the included 170 degree lens, and the camera has a built-in, 1.5-inch LCD monitor. The CamOne Infinity is available now for 250 euros.

We've seen plenty of action cameras — there's the GoPro Hero2, the Roam, the Freestyle HD, and the WingmanHD, to name a few — but the CamOne Infinity offers something a bit different. The 5-megapixel camera supports 1080p video at 30fps and 720p at 60fps, but what's unique is that it has an interchangeable lens system. The mount isn't sophisticated — it's more like a screw than a camera mount — but the company told Gizmag that it'll soon offer 142 degree and 96 degree lenses to accompany the included 170 degree lens. The Infinity also has a built-in 1.5-inch display, unlike the GoPro, and it has two microSD card slots, HDMI, a motion sensor, and an LED flash.

Like most action video cameras, the Infinity comes with a waterproof casing and lots of mounts so you can strap it to your helmet or hook it onto your bike, but CamOne is offering a few premium accessories as well. Along with an optional external monitor, there's something called the V-Eyes Video Goggles head-mounted display for viewing footage from the camera. We're not sure why you'd ever need these, but there's also a Wi-Fi transmission set for wirelessly viewing video on the goggles or the external monitor if you need it. The most interesting accessory is the LinX, a wireless control unit that lets you aim the camera from afar and watch what it's recording. The accessories aren't priced, but the CamOne Infinity is available now for €250 (about $330).
