GE Offers UP Waterproof Camcorder

  • Waterproof up to five metres
  • 4 x digital zoom
  • Retractable USB connector

GE’s latest mini camcorder is waterproof and shockproof and can be plunged to depths of five metres and withstand bumps from 1.5 metres.

About the size of a mobile phone, it is suited for the outdoors – whether riding waves or snowy slopes, dipping into a pool party or crowd surfing at a festival –  the GE DV1 mini camcorder soaks up its surroundings, shooting video in full 1080p HD or capturing 5 megapixel stills.

It is available in a range of colours including green, orange, blue, red and grey. A 2.5 inch LCD display, SD card slot, Lithium-ion battery and HDMI-out can be found on board, plus it utilises an integrated USB connector enabling content to be uploaded and shared on YouTube, Flickr or social networking websites.

The point-and-shoot device also features a 4x digital zoom, optical image stabilisation technology, underwater colour mode, automatic face detection and red eye removal.
