Drift HD the compact action camera

How do you capture the picturesque scenery, when you are on a ride, and show it to your loved ones, just as you have seen it? Simple. Use an action camera.

There are several brands available in the market, and one such Drift HD, a compact action camera suitable for many rugged sports.

Some Standard Feature:

  •     Full HD video for creating crystal clear footage.
  •     More compact housing, 4.1 inches and 5.04 oz., 25 percent smaller than its predecessor.
  •     Rotatable, replaceable lens.
  •     Second rear cover to protect the camera when using an external mic or a USB charger.
  •     An integrated LCD screen for shot setup and playback.
  •     Micro HDMI connector for HDTV playback.
  •     A remote control to enable you to film what you want to record, not the boring stuff in between.
  •     New goggle strap in addition to curved and flat adhesive mounts, paired with a universal clip for multiple mounting options.
  •     Standard ¼” 20 thread for use with most tripods.

  •     9MP still photography; put it in the photo burst mode and you can take pictures every few seconds for as long as your memory card and battery lasts.

Cool toys for boys: Casio ProTrek digital watch

Here is a quick post about Casio Protrek taken from MyBikeMyWorld.com

Be it a five year old or a 25 year old, it’s an inevitable fact that toys and boys’ go hand in hand. And, for a biker when a gadget has good utility, it simply adds to the assets on his ride.One such gadget is a watch. All boys like to own a cool watch but a biker wants a utility watch. Something that gives him information that can come handy during a ride and not just display time.

Now let’s throw in some of the readings that come handy on a ride. The very first and obvious is accurate time, that too on a digital screen. Why? When you are riding at 100km/hr you want to know the time — you take a look at your watch, you want to know the time and not ‘decipher’ the time.

An altimeter: It’s good to know how ‘high’ you are especially when you are riding up somewhere in the mountains. While crossing mountain passes, the height info is good to look at. Gives a sense of achievement.

A compass: When every direction is marked in your road map app then what good is a compass in today’s age? Well, let me tell you why. An avid biker loves to wander on offbeat tracks where only eagles dare. A compass will always come in handy at such sights. The best I felt its use was inside the little Rann of Kutch.

Temperature: Be it the coldest mountains or the hottest desert, the current temperature reading will let you know how much you are bearing.

Water-resistant: Surely, you won’t take your watch off your wrist each time there is a downpour!  Invest on a 100m water resistant watch. This feature is a MUST have.

Solar powered: Don;t depend on battery alone. Solar power is a great idea!

Alarm, world time, timer and stop watch are add-ons. Useful features for everyone.

There is just one watch maker that meets all these features, plus a sturdy design to take on the rugged — Casio

Its sturdy shockproof design, reliable technology, low cost compared to other brands and maintenance free product is the ideal watch a biker should own.

And looking at the product lineup of Casio, the one that fits well in every category is PRG-110-1V.

The slim fit design incorporated with all the above features mentioned does the job for a biker.
