The Rollei Racy Full HD: All-round action cam with brilliant Full HD resolution and Full HD auto DVR recorder in one!
Hamburg 6 March 2013 – Once again Rollei is expanding its product line with an impressive, versatile action camcorder: The new Rollei Racy Full HD is an action cam, a digital and diving camera as well as a Full HD auto DVR recorder in one. Coupled with its affordable price, it becomes an outstanding camcorder for stunning shoots in full HD quality.
The Rollei Racy Full HD has a 5.0 megapixel CMOS sensor, is compactly sized at 74 x 52 x 33 mm and weighs a slender 72 grams (without battery and memory card). And the fact that it is so lightweight is a true bonus: photos and videos can be shot conveniently and easily wherever you are. With up to 60 fps the watertight camera (in underwater protection casing) is an ideal companion for all your exciting outdoor activities, sports and leisure time. And all in Full HD quality!
Quick as a flash: the Rollei Racy Full HD shines as a Full HD auto DVR recorder – and it couldn’t be easier to use, with the automatic capture function when connected to the auto-load adapter. If the battery – which has over 60 minutes’ charge – is used up, then you can still take manual shots during the journey. The display on the monitor rotates 180°.
Watertight: The Rollei Racy Full HD films your adventures when kayaking, rafting and snorkelling, reliably in Full HD quality. When flying down the pistes, daring to do a bungee jump or on your next dive, this will be your perfect partner – for use at depths of up to ten metres!
Visionary: The LCD touch panel, which easily measures 6 cm, appeals thanks to its simple menu. This makes on-the-spot image and video selection really easy! Equipped with remote control, a self-timer (ten seconds) and series image function (three images) – coupled with electronic shutter speed control, automatic lighting correction and automatic white balance – so your shots in Full HD quality become child’s play!
Versatile: Supplied with the product are remote control, a helmet fixture, 3M attachment stickers (four pieces), underwater protection casing and a USB cable. Rollei offers a small, exclusive range of extra accessories for your driving, skiing and snowboarding travels. This makes the Rollei Racy Full HD a real all-rounder in all situations!
