Flytecam Is A Streamlined GoPro Challenger
Flytecam has a rubberized body, is waterproof down to 3 meters, has an 120o lens and shoots 60fps for slow motion in 720p. It claims a three hour battery life and was developed alongside a ""flytemount"" that uses neodymium magnets and rubber teeth to secure the camera for mounting (see below).
Pre-order is starting soon and pricing will definitely be the decider in terms of whether or not this is a legitimate competitor (the base model GoPro is currently $200). But Flytecam's creators claim that they started the project ""because we couldn't find a product that we really wanted, (and most certainly couldn't afford)."" Okay, well then it better be cheap.
