I still remember times when I got home from a sailing trip or a regatta only with memories in my head. I could not take more because I always had too much to do on the deck while those who were not working that much did not have waterproof cameras
. I could only rely on memories or just a few photos by those who were willing to risk their cameras getting wet.
As time went on and the technology advanced
and the number of my sailing photos increased. At first they were taken with waterproof cameras and later by mobile devices’ cameras. Still that doesn’t seem to be enough for modern kids and gadget fans
. The action has to be filmed and published online via social media. At first I was skeptical about such exposure but I found filming the action useful
At this point I mean the recapitulation of the race where all mistakes could be seen after the race and discussed
among the crew members. Muvi HD
action camera by Veho
seems to be perfect for such tasks. It is equipped with waterproof and shockproof case
and is easy to be mounted on almost every surface or object. Furthermore, there is off/on and start/stop remote control as well as mounting devices. Its dimension of 80 x 47 x 19 mm makes it easy to carry in any pocket or sport purse while its weight amounts to not more than 81 g.
