Oregon Scientific ATC5K Action Camera

 

Oregon Scientific's ATC5K definitely looks the part of a rugged camcorder, but are its appearances deceiving?

The ATC5K sports 1.5in LCD at the back is just about good enough to tell whether a recorded video is worth keeping or not, but as I just mentioned, it's pretty hard to get as far into the menu as deleting a duff file without losing patience and...

Oregon Scientific ATC5K review

 

Usually extreme sports helmet cameras are ruggedly simple affairs that have to forgo complications such as LCD viewfinders in favor of compact and durable designs. The Oregon Scientific ATC5K Action Camera avoids that compromise by squeezing a small...

The ATC5K has a color LCD that makes it easy to use in the field. Its Webcam and live monitor function enhance the usefulness of the camera. Waterproof, shockproof design takes bumps and splashes in stride.

Front-heavy design makes the unit difficult to mount stably. Low light performance is abysmal.

The ATC5K Action Camera has a few new features that make it easy to pick up and start using; however, it falls flat when it comes to video and photo quality.

Review Of The Oregon Scientific ATC5K Action Camera

 

Right at the top of the goodies list, the ATC5K has the capability to record videos up to 640x480 pixels and at 30 frames per second which can be triggered with the button on top or the RF control. It is also able to capture still photographs at...

The ATC5K has good shockproof & water – resistibility. The color LCD is an added plus point which is enhanced by the webcam and live monitor functions

Picture & video quality aren't that good. The design is such that it makes the front end heavy and that makes it unstable when mounted

: The ATC5K has a lot to offer in terms of functionality. It's also very reliable as far as the water-proofing and shock- resistance are concerned, but it looses points on the image quality. To add more salt to the wounds its tapered design makes...
