Midland Announces High Def Wearable Cameras

For those of you outdoorsy type folks you might want to check out the new HD wearable cameras from Midland, yes I said HD with resolution up 1080P.  Also known as wearable video camcorders, these tiny (3 oz) but powerful cameras are designed to attach to helmets, goggles, handlebars and more, leaving the user’s hand free to participate in the action. With these cameras you can capture all the action while fully participating in the outdoor activities or extreme action sports you love.

he HD XTC200 and XTC300 video camera are sure to make a big splash in the marketplace. "Action cameras are a growing market," said Charlie Speights Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Midland. He continues, "Some of the older cameras are larger and a bit cumbersome. The one button on/off design of the XTC line is ingenious. A single flip of a single switch allows you to start recording so it’s perfect for everything from sky diving to scuba diving."

With the purchase of the XTC100, 200 or 300 the consumer receives accessories that allow the camera to mount to multiple surfaces. Accessories include a universal mount, strap mount, goggle mount and handlebar mount. Midland’s growing line of accessories includes a submersible case and windshield mount.

"The multiple attachments that come with the camera are ideal too," states Tyler Cracraft, Midland’s Product Manager, "Use the appropriate mounting device then go anywhere or do almost anything and shoot-and-share your POV (point-of-view) footage." See actual footage at www.MidXTC.com.

Midland also offers camouflaged cameras; the SD 480p XTC150 and HD 1080p XTC350. These cameras were designed for outdoorsmen and include accessories to attach the camera to the bill of a cap, handlebars, hunting bow or tree.

The Midland name stands for durability and reliability, and the XTC Series will further that reputation."
