    Monoprice releases Full HD action camera with a price tag of just $100

    The ruggedized barrel shaped camera shoots full HD (1920x1080) video at 30 fps with a 120-degree lens and is waterproof to about 10 meters, which includes audio recording under water. Monoprice says it's freeze, shock and dust proof, too. it relies on a two-axis gyro sensor to keep videos level. It even captures 5-megapixel images in one of three modes: single, burst and time lapse. Your other option is to shoot 720p at 30 fps.
    Sample footage from Vimeo (720p)



    Looks pretty decent for the price.

    Only $100?

    I mean, the margins on those things blow to begin with, I wonder if it's direct from manufacturer only. Either way, this will put a major hurt on GoPro et al.


    EDIT:

    Helmet mount is only $13.

    Who's ordering one to review it? Looks like a March ship date.

    My guess is that unless it's total crap, they lack sufficient manufacturing capacity, they have a terrible distribution network, or are horrible marketers......... I dont see how it couldn't punish GoPro's pricing.
