BlackVue SC500 Sports Action Camera


BlackVue SC500 Sports Action Camera

The Blackvue SC500 Sports Action Camera is a HD video camera from Pittasoft, the manufacturers of the world renowned Blackvue range of in car cameras. With the SC500 they have now launched a fantastic new sports camera to rival the Go Pro range. The BlackVue SC500 takes excellent HD quality video and photographs using a Sony Exmor 12MP sensor.

The SC500 video quality is better than most action cameras in darker lighting conditions, where it captures a wide range of detail in both the shadows and highlights, along with good colour rendition.

The SC500 is also Wi-Fi-ready, with a free and easy-to-use app (Android & iOS) that allows you to control the camera, change all of the settings and even watch the video in real time via the live view.

SC500 is the square “Go Pro shape” with dimensions at 35x54x44mm, weighing in at just 97 grams without the housing (62x36x52mm and 151 grams with the rubber housing). It’s nearly identical to the Hero3 in size, shape and weight.

The SC500 comes with an LCD “backpack” that connects to the camera via a built-in port. The camera also comes with a plastic blanking plate that can be snapped on to the back of the camera if the LCD isn’t required for a live view.

The SC500 uses the Sony Exmor 12MP CMOS sensor. The sensor does a remarkable job at taking smooth, crisp video and it has a noticeably wider exposure for better overall clarity and more realistic edge sharpening. The SC500 captures video in the .mp4 format at 1080p at 60 or 30 fps; 720p at 30, 60 or 120fps and 480p at 240fps for super-slow-motion – you can really create some fantastic videos using this mode! The camera can also take time-lapse photos at 1 second, 5 second, 30 second, 1 minute, 5 minutes and 10 minute intervals.

Still photo quality from the SC500 is much better than the poor still photo quality of many action cameras and the SC500 even takes better photos than many digital cameras. Photos are .jpgs at 0.3M, 7.2M, 8.5M or 12M resolution. The fixed wide angle lens is 157 degrees, also, the camera has a built-in mic and speaker.

A 3.7V, 1050mAh battery is included with the kit with over 2 hours of run time when taking 1080p video. You can save some power by not using the LCD (it can also be turned off via a button on top of the camera) and by using the Wi-Fi connection instead via the App. The SC500 requires a micro SD card with a minimum of a Class 10 rating. The memory card is not included in the camera. The camera supports cards up to 32GB.
