TomTom launches the Bandit Action Camera in NZ

13 Jul 15

The TomTom Bandit Action Camera is now available in select New Zealand retail stores.

It comes with a built-in media server and works with a companion app to allow users to create videos and overlay them with music and metrics. Users can then share these videos by shaking their smartphone.

TomTom's Bandit Action Camera will be available from JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Noel Leeming and Torpedo 7 stores nationally at RRP$619. A premium pack at RRP$719 will be available in August. 

The standard pack includes the camera, waterproof IPX7 lens cap, waterproof 1900MAH battstick, flat and curved adhesive disc mounts and GoPro adaptor. The premium pack includes all of the above along with the waterproof IPX8 lens cap.

This camera has a wide angle lens, high-end 16 MP CCD sensor and a powerful processor. 

It's equipped with in-camera motion and GPS sensors to automatically find and tag moments based on speed, altitude, G-force, acceleration and heart rate.

Highlights can also be tagged manually with a tagging button on the camera or the remote control.

The Batt-Stick combines the long lasting battery, microSD card and SuperSpeed USB 3.0, and the camera plugs directly into a computer via USB to charge and download footage.

It's also completely waterproof - however an additional lens cap accessory is required to be waterproof up to 50 metres.

The steel ring mounting system has a quick release mechanism designed to be used on a helmet.

Winnie Kwan, TomTom senior marketing manager Asia Pacific says, “We are excited to bring the TomTom Bandit to New Zealand.

"The Bandit action camera fits in perfectly with the active Kiwi lifestyle. We can’t wait to see people editing and sharing their great footage on the go.”
