Oregon Scientific recently announced the launch of its ATC9K All-Terrain Video Camera, the next generation of the ATC line of action cameras. This waterproof and shock-resistant camera can be strapped to a helmet, handlebars, surfboard, or snowboard, so it can follow athletes places they wouldn’t dare bring a normal camera -“ and shoots in high-definition.

The compact ATC9K features a built-in G-sensor that measures the force of gravity during acceleration, deceleration and hang time, allowing users to record and review every detail of their performance. A laser pointer on the camera also helps users line up the camera, so they never miss a moment of the action. Designed for the rugged adventure, the ATC9K does not sacrifice function over form -“ it features full 1080p professional quality HD video, shoots up to 60 frames per second, has 130 degree wide field of view, captures 5-megapixels photos, and has a built-in color LCD display that allows users to preview and play back videos.

Through September 30th, ATC fans can get in on the action by uploading their own videos to Facebook and sharing the mud, sweat, and glory of their own outdoor conquests. From dirt-biking to sea kayaking, the ATC9K can capture it all -“ even up to 65 feet under water. Video submissions that meet contest terms and conditions will be narrowed down to the top five videos. The winning videos will be selected by a panel of judges and prize packages include one Grand Prize package valued at $750 and one Runner-up prize package valued at $350.

The ATC9K is also compatible with a GPS plug-in (sold separately with availability in October) that enables PC-users to map their location, speed and distance travelled on their computer during playback using Google Maps or Google Earth. While watching the video clip playback on a computer, users can view corresponding location, acceleration and altitude displayed on the map. Outdoor enthusiasts, trainers, and sports lovers alike can view or edit footage on single screen with this useful tool and keep track of each wilderness trail, road race, or coastline.

The ATC9K All-Terrain Video Camera is currently available for the suggested retail price of $299.99 at and includes a remote control, a USB cable for connecting to a PC or Mac, and an HDMI cable for HD playback on a TV. A Velcro strap, handle bar, helmet grip, and silicon strap mounting accessories are also included.
