The Ego is our first mountable camera. It shoots in 1080p at 30 frames per second and 720p at 60 frames per second for smooth high action footage with H.264 .MOV formatting. This camera also captures 12 mega pixel still and continuous photos.
Every new Ego comes with a micro USB cable, a mount, extra adhesive, and a clear faceplate. The battery is integrated into the camera and initially is halfway charged. Before the first use, we recommend charging the battery for about two hours.
To get started, the Ego is set up like our other cameras with two main buttons.
First, there is the power button. It's basic function is to power on and off the camera but it is also used for switching between modes. The LED light changes color indicating which mode you are in.
To start or stop picture or video recording, press the shutter button. This button is also used to make selections when programming the camera and to start and stop WIFI.
The LCD screen tells you what mode you are in, how many files you have recorded in each mode, battery life, WiFi status, and so on. For the full list of what the LCD screen displays, check out the product manual which comes with the Ego or go to our website.
This is the camera lens. It has a field of view of 135 degrees for widescreen recording and its focus is from about 6 inches to infinity. The shutter speed ranges from ½ to 1/8000 frames per second. It's important when handling the ego to clean the lens before shooting to avoid blurry images and videos caused by dust or fingerprints.
This is the microphone. The mic records in mono, is water-resistant, omni-directional and has a minus 42-decibel sensitivity.
Over here we have the media door. In here are the ports for USB, HDMI, and the Micro SDHC Card. The ego takes USB 2.0 for high-speed data transfer and a class six or higher Micro SDHC card up to 32 gigabytes in size.
At the bottom is a quarter inch accessory connection point, making the Ego easy to connect to tripod plates or any other accessory mounts.
