Liquid Image Impact HD720P

RH Numbers

Liquid image is onto a good thing with its product design. While other companies insist on strapping cameras to chests, helmets, surfboards and bikes, these clever people have taken a miniature camera and wedged it inside a face-mask, right between the eyes. So off-road bikers, skiers and, most impressively, divers, can get a near-as-dammit point-of-view shot that frames up nicely every time – just make sure you look at the best stuff! It shoots 720p video with 1080p arriving in autumn, the camera captures plenty of detail onto a MicroSD card, and there’s half-decent audio recording as well. No, it won’t win awards for colour reproduction, but as a simple and pain-free way to record your fun it’s hard to beat.

Oregon Scientific BAR808 Solar Weather Station Advanced

RH Numbers

Mountains and moors are notoriously difficult areas for weather prediction, and forecasts – radio, TV or Internet-based – are often not localized enough for your needs. The BAR808 is certainly no crystal ball, but it will give you an idea of what to expect over the next 12-24 hours. Place the separate wireless sensor outside your tent and you’ll have accurate temperature and humidity measurements with arrows indicating future change. With a slight nod to ecology, the unit’s 3 batteries remain unused when the built-in solar panels have enough light to take over. Moon phase information and extreme weather warnings complete this worthwhile package.
