The Mycrocam UK Camera and Drone comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.
FEATURING the Muvi Q-1 Drone from Veho and the Muvi K2 NPNG Action Camera, this ‘bundle deal’ from Mycrocam looks like an interesting combo to add a new, professional dimension to your angling movie library.
If you’re a budding ‘Carl and Alex’, without getting bogged down in all the detail, the Muvi Q-1 drone is a remote-controlled, aerial camera system that you can use to produce high-quality, high-definition aerial videos and photography.
It features a special, universal, 3-axis gimbal, to help remove frustrating vibration and in-flight movement.
And a very handy follow-me feature in the shape of a GPS tracker watch (included), so that the drone can track you, ‘hands free’, so you don’t leave the shot.
It can fly for up to 20 minutes, thanks to its rechargeable and removable 6,800 maH Li-Pro battery.
The easy-to-navigate remote control allows for flight and camera giro control from up to 500 m. There are three drone flight modes, Eco, Drive and Sports.
The system is compatible with the Muvi K-Series and Go Pro HERO 3 and 4 cameras.
This bundle includes a Muvi K2 camera, measuring only 2.7 in x 2 in. x 1 in., which records high definition 1080p video at 60 fps, as well as 720p at 120 fps. It can also capture stills at 8, 12 and 16 megapixels, and can allow you to take up to ten photos per second.
It comes with built-in wi-fi with a range of up to 60 metres, which allows you to connect and pair it with your smartphone. The K2’s rechargeable lithium battery allowing up to four hours of continuous recording.
The ‘bundle’ from Mycrocam also includes a 16 GB micro SD memory card, a waterproof case, and you also get four silicone cases for the camera, offering extra water resistance without using the waterproof housing, which tends to be used for underwater work. The current saving by buying the bundle is around £144.
