Market leader GoPro launched its new action cam models at a Photokina event on Monday. Rollei already announced its latest top-end action camera about a month ago, but we just got the chance to look at the new device at the Rollei booth at Photokina.
The Actioncam 430 offers impressive camera specs and can record 4K video at 30 fps, 2K at 60 fps, 120 fps at Full-HD resolution and up to 200 fps at 720p, allowing for the recording of high definition slow-motion footage. In stills mode the Sony image sensor captures 12MP photographs and the lens covers an angle of view of 180 degrees. Images can be framed and reviewed on a 2″ TFT display with a 320 x 240 pixel resolution and a status display at the front keeps you informed about current shooting mode, remaining recording time and battery status.
The Actioncam 430 can be remote-controlled via a mobile app and a wristband-style wireless remote, with a range of up to 15 meters, is included in the box as well. The Rollei is not waterproof but comes with a case that is recommended for depths of up to 40m/131ft. The camera is compatible with most GoPro accessories and available now in Europe for €249 (approximately $275). No information on availability in other regions has been announced yet.
