Oregon Scientific offer a fantastic and affordable range of ATC action cameras which are a great way to start filming your adventures. They are all ‘wireless’ or ‘self contained’ which makes them a lot more compact and easier to use than alternatives.
In this section of the Action Cameras website I will be reviewing Oregon Scientific’s ATC range. I will be posting the latest news on the ATC action camera range, reviewing them and advising you on each of them before you buy one. There is a store locator, so you can find out where you can buy an ATC online, and which online shop is most affordable! I currently own an ATC 2000 and love it. I think these are a fantastic range of affordable and highly practical action cameras!
Oregon Scientific’s range of ATC action cameras come in 4 models, with the original ATC1000 only available second hand. Each model is ‘wireless’ or ‘self contained’, meaning it contains storage space and power within the unit. This is compared to wired action cameras which would require a separate recorder and power supply.
The advantage of choosing a wireless camera is that you don’t need to have wires coming off your helmet, across your handle bars or where ever you choose to attach it, to a bag with a recording and power unit in. The main disadvantage of having a wireless action camera, is because it is all built into one unit, it is a little bit bulkier and heavier.
The ATC range of action cameras are all highly affordable, and are aimed at entry to intermediate level users. The original ones, such as the ATC3000, do not come with a built in screen for instant video play back, but this is available in the ATC5000, which definitely makes it a little bit more special.
The ATC range can be attached to your helmet, handle bars, legs and arms or pretty much anywhere you can securely wrap the Velcro strap around.
You can use your ATC action cam for a wide range of high action activities, such to record yourself mountain biking, skiing, white water rafting and so on. The ATC range of helmet cameras are very popular with commuting cyclists, so that they can record their journeys in case anything happens and an ATC camera can be used for similar applications for motorcyclists and other drivers.
