This is because anyone who wants to view indescribably beautiful plateaus, canyons, reefs and caves in awesome image quality, won't want to part with this small, lightweight Actioncam! At just 60 x 51 x 42 mm and weighing only 80 grams, now there's no longer any need to drag around heavy cameras in clumsy underwater housings.

The 7x multi-layer coated glass lens ensures pin-sharp images with a transparency of over 99 percent. Full HD resolution (1080p) guarantees breathtaking results of the highest quality. The 175-degree wide-angle lens ensures that the action is always in perfect focus. You can even increase the frame rate to 60 fps (1080i) to capture crystal clear slow-motion images!
Really innovative: The integrated WLAN has a range of 40 metres. This means that diving enthusiasts can access the camera via their smartphone or tablet and view or share videos and photos in real time. Exciting experiences can easily be shared via social networks using the corresponding app (for iOS and Android). The Rollei Actioncam 5S WiFi Diving Edition is more than just a video camera – it reproduces your adventures in perfect, pristine detail. The package includes an external TFT display, offering live image checking for those divers who simply want to watch what they’ve filmed.
