During my many adventure activities, I always yearned for specialized Adventure Camera which is Easy to use and social media sharing friendly. I had little idea, someone was working on it.
Question : What is the most difficult thing in Gadget/Electronics world?
Answer : Making Things or Technology Simple and Uncomplicated
Yes that is the most difficult thing to do in the world of gadgets and gizmos. Fortunately Frodo has cracked the code for Adventure Cameras by making the most Intelligent Adventure Camera.
How? I said above. By making technology simple and easy to use.
I’ve seen many Adventure camera brands and they have multiple options for different use with variation in cost, technology, functionality and later on usability. Frodo has made it happen, all under one gadget and brought us a product which does it all effortlessly. It makes recording the Adventure or Adventure Sports activity easy. What wins my vote is that it allows immediate editing of huge video files on the fly ,in an instant and in different manners according to your choice. What’s more, it further makes it simpler to share instantly with your team and friends on the go.
Its Six-Axis Motion Sensors and Gyro based Video Stabilization makes shaky recording a thing of past. Recording dynamic adventure activity is a child’s play with this camera. The wide angle lenses record your primary focus and other details which other camera miss because of its Field Of View, Frodo has it a plenty with its 120 degree wide lenses. Moreover it has an excellent aperture for the size, its f/2.6 so it can see more than any other camera on the market. You can also take stills at 8 megapixels which is again higher resolution than most other adventure cameras. All this is useless if you want to shoot anything as soon as you see some action happening, Frodo wins here too as Boot-To-Shoot time is as fast as 0.7 seconds, fast enough to catch any sudden action you may miss if you boot at snail’s pace.
Share is quite easy with lots of connectivity options with Bluetooth 4.0 LE(Low Energy) Wi-Fi 802.11n and USB PnP(Plus n Play) makes it easy to share your content they way you want.
Other features are hidden display, Video Format makes it easy to share and store. You get multiple onboard storage options (16/32/64) and that too without making a hole in your pocket for paying for the difference in upgrading the storage.

Why these guys are doing a crowdfunding campaign:
Frodo is ready. The Intelligence is ready. All they need is our support to go into manufacturing. By gaining our support and backing through Indiegogo via pre-orders, they plan to manufacture Frodo on a large scale – reducing not just cost of production, but also the effective price of Frodo for the end consumer, us. As contributors and prospective backers, we have the power to help them make innovative technology affordable. So yes, every backer is special to them. Link here.
