REPLAY XD Introduces XD1080 Pro Shooter Accessories

by Brian Mullin on January 14, 2013

XD has been sort of quiet lately, but with the new release of the
ReView HD video monitor, dive housing, RePower 2200 and 2400 battery
packs, and the RePower Rapid XD charger, they come out with a big bang.

XD makes some excellent cameras, and I had recently tested their top of
the line XD1080 POV video camera. I found the XD1080 to have an
excellent form and usage factor, exemplified by the power/record
buttons, vibration feedback and small and light size. Since you don’t
have an external display device, you needed to guesstimate the proper
lens rotation and tilt of the camera, which is best accomplished using
the alignment lines on the lens, and matching them perpendicular to the
horizon. With the new ReView display, you can set the proper alignment,
and view and listen to your recorded footage. The large HD screen
measures in at 4.3 inches, has a slew of input and output ports, and
weights 6.5 ounces.

Thoughts => This looks like a really nice
display, and it allows you to look at footage in full HD glory. Since it
accepts an HDMI input, you can use this display for not only the Replay
XD cameras, but other vendor POV cameras. This will make in the field
usage really nice, especially on road trips when you don’t have to pull
out the big laptop computer to check out your recordings. I am looking
forward to trying out the ReView and seeing how the new battery
accessories assist in using their cameras.
