The iPhone and iPad devices have taken the world by storm since their introduction. While they are still hot items for the Holidays, the gadgets which support, extend, and enhance those devices’ capabilities make great gifts as well. Today, we have put together a collection of such iGadgets which we would love to get as gifts. We think those lucky enough to be on your iGiftList will feel the same!
iGadgets for those who like to watch the world, record what is going on, or share what they are doing:
- Dropcam HD – watch everything, from anywhere
- BlackVue WiFi Dashcam – record everything in front of the car
- BlackVue Sport SC500 – record the action, watch it immediately
OK, the BlackVue Sport SC500 actually is not an iGadget. It is an action-cam. It is new and might be a bit difficult to find in the US, but we decided to slip it in anyway… just in case you have someone on your list who has been REALLY GOOD this year 🙂
We have been big fans of action-cams. In fact, we hacked together one back in 2004even before there was such a thing as a GoPro. The action-cam market is growing and that growth is accelerating. We expect to see the fast and furious activities in this space to continue over the next couple of years.
So it was not surprising to see that when BlackVue decided enter to the market, it came with a product which offered everything one expects in an action-cam and more. The Sport SC500 records Full HD 1080p video at up to 60 FPS, HD 720p video at up to 120 FPS and shoots 12MP photos. It also has time lapse controls, 152° wide-angle lens, HDMI port for connecting to compatible TV, and WiFi for talking to smartphones. The STANDARD package also includes 2” LCD display, cables, battery, different mounting types, camera bag and protective case for underwater use.
We are really excited to see a serious challenger to the extremely popular and highly capable GoPro action-cam. GoPro, your move.
