The HackHD - a $140 (shipped) bare bones 1080p camera for tinkerers

HackHD 1080P HD Camera PCB



Crossposted from here, where hackhd has explained some of the features.

At this price, it is competing with the Contour Roam, but some of the specs are interesting.

GoPro Hero1 lens threading. There are many aftermarket lenses being used for GoPros to lessen the wide FOV, like the Sunex DSL355A-650-F2.8.

Large image sensor. It sounds like this camera has a sensor that is nearly as large as the new GoPro2, which is good for low light.

External Audio in, and live component video out.

No software options, but they are a possibility in the future.

I haven't got money to throw at this, nor do I know much about this kind of thing, but this MIGHT just be the end-be-all to making the perfect mask cam.

That's exactly what I was thinking. It would be great for in-goggle custom cameras.

So add a Bluetooth and a phone app so you can adjust image,
sew the board and battery into a bounce cap to protect it,
And pop the camera behind your lens( between your eyes)?

Hmm, what does it record onto?

so you would have to add a mic if you want sound recording?
saves you time track leveling in iMovie if you are editing, you can just lay up the video and dub in music.

wonder what the board size is? LxWxH....possibly put it inside one of those life proof cell phone cases and then just lead out the lens wires to mount in mask with the life proof case containing board etc. in the straps. Heat shrink wrap the wire leads for extra insulation and protection.

It was mentioned in the other thread that it can fit inside a GoPro case. By those measurements, I'd say that's about right.

If only there were 16mm lenses for this. Then, I'd be able to adapt a 30mm Telephoto lens to it.

Like I mentioned...it's GoPro threaded!

Ragecams carries a huge range of Gopro threaded lenses. They're a bit pricey, but I'm not sure where else to snag em. Maybe direct from Sunex, but they aren't trying to be a retailer.
