Summary: The ATC3K Action Camera is rugged enough to take the knocks of extreme sports; however, it falls flat when it comes to video and photo quality.
Pros: The ATC3K's waterproof, shockproof design takes bumps and splashes in stride. The Webcam and live monitor functions enhance the usefulness of the camera.
Cons: The unit only captures VGA video, which is fairly low resolution by today's standards. Front-heavy design makes the unit difficult to mount stably. Low light performance is abysmal. The ATC3K does not feature a still photography mode.
Summary: The Oregon Scientific ATC3K Action Camera is well priced, waterproof, can be used as a webcam (although not with Vista 64), offers adequate resolution for most purposes, is solidly built, and comes with all the attachments you need to mount it for a variety of uses. There are several self-contained competitors out there for similar prices, but for recording certain activities on a budget, you cannot go far wrong with the ATC3K.
Summary: A budget device for recording various action sport antics, the Oregon Scientific ATC3K Action Camera is waterproof up to 3m, and comes supplied with all the attachments required to mount the camera in a variety of locations.

Summary: While not without its flaws, the Oregon Scientific ATC3K Action Camera is an excellent product for the asking price. If you're an outdoors enthusiast keen to chronicle your exploits, look no further. It's the best valued sports camcorder on the market.
Pros: Water/shock/freeze-proof, all-in-one design, lots of bundled extras
Cons: No viewfinder, terrible audio, a bit too bulky for helmet use
Conclusion: L’ Oregon Scientific ATC3K è un action-cam, vale a dire una videocamera molto compatta che può essere montata su caschi, manubri e altre attrezzature durante le evoluzioni sportive. La risoluzione del sensore non è elevatissima, il display è in bianco e nero e la memoria interna non è molto ampia ma resta comunque un buon dispositivo per riprese sia all’aria aperta che subacquee, in quanto è impermeabile fino a 3 metri di profondità.
Pros: Formato video AVI; Memoria espandibile; Ricchezza confezione acquisto; Possibilità di utilizzo multiple; Resistente agli urti e all'acqua
Cons: Difficolta; Prezzo; Risoluzione sensore; Schermo in bianco e nero
