Right before the family and I went on vacation to Orlando to visit Disney Animal Kingdom our new Action Shot Cam package arrived. Right on time, in fact I didn’t even open it just threw it in the car with us. Our package included the Action Shot Cam, Portable Video Viewer, Waterproof case, Deluxe Mounting Kit, and High Impact Case. The boys, when I showed them the camera and told them what it did, thought it was awesome. I on the other hand was thinking I hope this doesn’t open up a can of worms for the boys to get out on their bikes and skateboards doing flips and tricks.
The purpose of the Action Shot Cam is to give everyone an affordable way to take action shots. The Action Shot™ has both elements of a high-end POV camera to shoot maximum action video at 60 frames per second with an amazingly compact QVGA 20mm lens, and a price point that is unmatched. So basically what this means is you can put this tiny (about the size of your palm) camera around a helmet, attached to a bike or skateboard, or just about anywhere and start filming. The camera is from the eye of the holder. We decided to take our Action Shot Cam on the roller coaster Mount Everest just for fun. My son did the job for me since I stayed behind with my husband and daughter.

We just LOVED the concept of this camera! My son also used the waterproof case and took it down the water slide with him. It worked perfectly however the video just didn’t turn out because of how he was holding it so I didn’t post that one. Also the portable viewer is a great tool to have and if you plan on using this to take more then ONE video I strongly suggest you purchase it as well. The Action Shot Cam said it would take a 2 minute video but we did get 3 minutes out of it.
For those who love to live and play on the edge, they can now capture their action-packed stunts with the Action Shot™ Camera. This portable mini-camera captures all your adventures up-close with a front row view of all the action. Simply attach the Action Shot Camera to skateboards, bikes or helmets with the secure mounting system to record the most exciting thrills (and spills!) footage. The Action Shot Camera has upgradeable memory to record your wild feats and then upload the footage through the built-in USB port to share (and shock!) your family and friends so they can experience your adventures! Don’t miss the opportunity to share shots of your stunts
Quote from an Action Shot Cam Team Member
“Over the past few years, I have been exploring POV camera options to use, and recently partnered with the Action Shot Camera. It’s a lightweight, easy to use, POV cam that shoots amazing video – but what like most about it is, the affordable price point opens the possibilities for anyone to capture footage.” – Rob Dyrdek

I might not be much of a daredevil you won’t see me out on a bike doing wheelies, or twisting and turning on a skateboard but I absolutely think this camera is brilliant. For those of you that have an adventurous child, one that loves to scare you to death by doing all these tricks this is a great product. I honestly think kids will love it. I can picture it now, flips and tricks video taped with the Action Shot Cam then quickly uploaded to You Tube to share with the world. That is the world we live in here at Shibley Smiles.
The waterproof case worked like a charm, not one drop of water got inside to the camera. The Hi-Impact case is definitely great if you need that added protection. Also as I mentioned above the portable viewer is a must have. You don’t want to run in each time to and hook it up to your computer to check out your video. With the portable viewer you just click it on to the back of the Action Shot Cam to see how your video turned out. We took it with us to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and when we stopped for lunch we all watched the Mount Everest Video.
