Liquid Image improves video scuba mask

Liquid Image has released a new scuba mask at this year's CES in Las Vegas that promised to record what you see thanks to a built in camcorder.

The new SCUBA SERIES HD320 will allow you record video at 720p and records video at 30 frames per second with audio - presumably just the noise of the bubbles or a shark about to eat you.

The camera, which offers a 5-megapixel still camera as well will come with 64MB of built-in memory although a microSD card slot allows this to be upgraded to 32GB although we suspect you'll run out of air by the time you record 16 hours capacity.

To take a photo or record video, the diver lines up the crosshair marks on the mask with the object and then presses the capture button. LED lights inside the viewing area indicate what is going on and then all that's left is for the user to download the footage back on land.

Advanced PADI divers will be pleased to hear the mask has been tested to a depth of 35 metres. You'll also get an attachable adjustable light so you can see what you are doing that deep.

Expected to be launching soon the camera will cost around £150 when it lands in UK waters.
