Polaroid XS80 HD Action Camera Ready to Record Your Outdoor Shenanigans

 |  |  |  |  May 15, 2013

Polaroid has released a new action camera designed to be mountable on whatever it is you get your action fix on. The camera is called the Polaroid XS80 and it records in 1080p full HD resolution at 30fps.


The camera can also capture 720p video, though that doesn’t increase the frame rate. The XS80 is packed inside of a tough waterproof housing – good down to 10 meters. It’s impact-resistant so you can mount it on things like bicycles and motorcycles, and features anti-shake technology. It also has a wide 120-degree field of view for capturing as much of the action as it can. It’s even got a G-Sensor which ensures the image is always upright in case you mount the camera at a weird angle.

Still photos can be snapped in resolutions of 16, five, and three-megapixels as well as VGA resolution. The camera offers three different photo modes including single, burst, and time-lapse. Video and photos are written to a microSD card with up to 32GB of storage. Power comes from an integrated lithium-ion battery and it also has an HDMI output. MSRP for the XS80 is $129.99(USD) and while Polaroid says it’s available now, the products page lists it as unavailable at the time of writing.
