New in Canada: an action camera with wide angle and WiFi
WASPcam, a new action camera that was designed in Ajax, Ontario, is now available through Canada’s local bike shops. It includes high-resolution optics, plenty of accessories, plus a sponsorship offer.
Justin Moore—who developed the WASPcam sport action camera from his experiences in extreme sports—announced in August that he is partnering with distributor Live to Play Sports to bring the tough action cam to the cycling world. And to kick off the camera’s launch, Moore is offering WASPcam sponsorship perks to athletes who are willing, as their motto suggests, to PROVE IT!
What is WASPcam?
The WASP (Wide Action Sport Photography) 9901 is a compact, action-ready camera that records high-definition video footage up to 1080p30, shoots still photos at 5 megapixels, and includes an app that streams video to your smartphone’s screen.
It has wide and ultra-wide view capacity; 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, and 60-second intervals; and a quick-snap photo burst to capture for ten photos a second. The camera is also waterproof, includes twelve mounts and accessories (also available separately), is compatible with GoPro® accessories, and retails for $229.99*
Control the WASPcam from your wrist
The 9900 version of the WASPcam camera has the same specs and accessories, but also includes a WiFi wrist remote control that works up to 5 meters away. Both the camera and wrist control retail for $269.99*
Working with Live to Play Sports’ independently-owned bike shops and sports retailers, WASPcam expects to be available to consumers in late September.
