With a 136-degree field of view, this hybrid scuba mask/videocam sees everything you do and then some. That makes aiming a lot simpler. Throw it on and you’re ready to capture hands-free 720p video and 5-megapixel photos that rival pro work from just a few years back. Even while we were diving in wretched conditions to research oil-spill damage in the Gulf of Mexico—where a death grip on an anchor line was the only thing keeping us from being swept out to sea—the mask stayed sealed. Control was a cinch, too, including switching between video and still modes.
WIRED No-look buttons are easy to use, even in tricky dive situations. Great fit.
TIRED No way to manipulate or delete files without connecting to a computer—a problem if (hypothetically) an idiot reviewer on a rocking boat leaves the video on and fills the microSD card.
