Liquid Image has introduced a full HD model to its range of built-in camera masks.

The 324 Wide Angle Scuba Series HD 1080p builds on the success of previous offerings, for those who want their every nod recorded for posterity.

a true first-person perspective

Mounting a camera on your noggin does have the advantage of a true first-person perspective for your videos. It’s also streamlined in use in the water, without the issue of where to carry a separate camera.

Waterproof to 40 metres, the 324 mask has a choice of video settings. Choose either full HD 1080p at 30 frames per second, or 720p at a faster 60 fps. It can also snap 12 megapixel still images.

Data is recorded on familiar SD/SDHC cards, to a maximum of 32gb – which should be plenty for most of us. The mask connects to your computer via a supplied USB cable. Power comes from four AAA batteries.

Liquid Image has given some though to the ergonomics. The lens is of the wide angle variety, curving to take in a 136-degree panorama.

And handily for those wearing thick neoprene gloves, operation is via a lever button mounted on the top right. LEDs inside the mask indicate when pictures or video are taken.

The Liquid Image 324 is on sale now, priced around £330.
