Hit us with your best clips and/or images – just tag them #SnowAction #TomTomBandit – so you can win yourself the full TomTom Bandit Snow Pack combo valued at @ $750. TomTom Bandit Action Cameras have been making a big impact as a more than worthy competitor for the ubiquitous GoPro, offering some unique attributes and an app interface that makes it amazingly easy to edit your footage and share a “finished” clip in no time. Just shake your phone for an auto edit and share it, it’s that simple! New from TomTom this winter is the “Snow Pack”, combining accessories like a board mount and waterproof Batt-stick case with the TomTom so you are totally ready to rock the snow. Full comp details/conditions below.
Technological idiots can do it (I have!). SnowAction got our hands on one of the first 3 in Australia last winter and it’s become our #1 choice for the amazing versatility and ease of use, never mind the quality.
Apart from ease-of-use the other super cool feature is the “Batt-Stick”, which is the guts of the cylinder shaped camera, combining the long lasting battery, microSD card and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connector, that clics out to plug in to charge or download, so you don’t need to lug extra cords or chargers. Battery life is excellent in the real – as in real cold – world.
The TomTom Bandit was the first camera to come with a built-in media server, eliminating the need to download footage before being able to edit it, making it possible to create videos and overlay them with your favourite music and metrics, and share them in no time, simply by shaking your smartphone. In-camera motion and GPS sensors automatically find and tag exciting moments based on speed, altitude, G-force, acceleration and heart rate (with the add on strap monitor for that). You can also easily tag highlights manually with the button on the back of the camera.
Of course, you can download the footage and edit it in iMovie or whatever, but it doesn’t take long to get pretty handy just using the app on your phone.
The wide angle lens rotates 360° on the barrel, with a high-end 16 MP CCD sensor and a powerful processor. The camera is also completely waterproof, eliminating the need for an additional bulky case. The steel ring mounting system has a quick release mechanism.
Ease of use is a great plus, the off and on buttons let you confidently know when you are actually shooting or not, or you can use your phone screen to set the shots; we soon forgot the screen most of the time while shooting, then got to editing straight away at a mountain restaurant or on the gondola.
They weigh next to nothing, and with no cords required are ideal for travelling with.
Available from Harvey Norman and other stores, from $A579, or online at www.tomtom.com
