There’s nothing radically new about a gyro-stabilized camera that can capture 4K quality video using a cinema-style 24 FPS, or that can switch to a 60 FPS frame rate and capture 1080p HD resolution. But there is something rather radical about a camera that can do that priced just a bit over $200. The Olfi is a compact ultra high definition video camera that can capture superlative video in low light, bright light, when in motion, or even when underwater, thanks to its waterproof case. If you’re thinking that this is basically a very affordable knockoff of the latest GoPro cameras, you’re pretty much right. But this knockoff can compete with the OG. Strap one onto your helmet before your next outdoor adventure.
