Excerpt: The Oregon Scientific Chameleon is the most uniquely designed action camcorder we reviewed. It features dual cameras, one that rotates 180 degrees vertically and one that rotates 180 degrees horizontally.
Pros: You get two separate 170-degree videos, which is unprecedented coverage for a single action camcorder.
Cons: You can't split the video to watch one view at a time, so you're forced to watch both views simultaneously. Also, it can't record in 1080p, and its maximum frame rate is 30 fps.
Summary: The idea of having two cameras in one action cam is a neat idea. However, Oregon Scientific's ATC Chameleon is too unwieldy, video quality isn't nearly up to par and it lacks many features other cameras in this price range offer. Having two of everything isn't always better.
Pros: Shoots video in front of and behind you simultaneously, Easy controls
Cons: Large, Very bulky mounts, No mobile app, Blurry video, Doesn't take still images
Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon action cam is fun, but flawed
31 January 2014
Summary: The dual-camera Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon is a good idea, but the execution and the overall feature set are lacking.
Pros: The Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon action cam puts two cameras in one splash-proof body, allowing you to capture two different angles simultaneously for one video. It's simple to use. A tripod mount is included, so you can use it with more than the small selection of available mounts.
Cons: The Chameleon does nothing else other than create videos with two different camera angles, and only creates split-screen movies. Video quality is merely OK, lacking detail and quite gelatinous.
