At only 20 grams, the Geco Mark II is the world's lightest action camera. Made in South Africa, the Geco is one of the simplest, smallest and most practical camera's on the market. Designed to mount to the frame of your glasses, you will be able to film life's spontaneous moments in HD while still having the chance to experience them. The Geco is able to film in 1080p30, 720p30 or 720p60, which saves to a nifty removable 8GB MicroSD card included.in. The 300mAh battery will give you between 45minutes and an hour of film time between charges, and can record while charging if you've got a powerbank.
One of the great features of the Geco is it's versatility and there are just some things where the angle and point of view you wished you could get were just not realistic. Being only a little bigger than a 5 rand coin and a tad longer, it can be mounted simply and feels like nothing's there, or placed in its 30m waterproof case and mounted to any 1/4 inch standard camera mount. It can also be used as a dash cam or webcam.
The Geco can be used in pretty much anyway your imagination can come up with and being at a fraction of the price of other HD action cameras on the market at recommended retail of R2000, it's a lot less stressful on your pocket to share great footage.
John-Michael national MTB cyclist and Action Gear Buyer tested the Geco Mark II out with a ride through Detla Park, which shows the quality of video at high speeds. This video was shot by John-Micheal alone with no help, using the accessories and tripod that come with the Geco in the box. One of the coolest parts for me was that I purely cut the videos into one video with YouTube's editor. There are no filters, enhancements or stabilization added. YouTube even had a choice of rad free music options to give the video a little Oomph.
