When it comes to action cams, small is good. If you're tearing up a track on a mountain bike, skiing down a slope or drifting a race car, you don't want to be worrying about your cam. It's actually the opposite: you want to forget about it.

When it comes to action cams, small is good. If you're tearing up a track on a mountain bike, skiing down a slope or drifting a race car, you don't want to be worrying about your cam. It's actually the opposite: you want to forget about it.

Liquid Image's Ego is small enough to not notice but tough enough to tag along. It measures a meek 4cm x 3cm x 6cm, is shock proof to 2 metres, waterproof to 3 metres and has enough mounts "for virtually any sport."

Beneath its colourful skin is an enthusiastic camera pleading to join you on your most daring adventures. And it'll capture these adventures in Full HD clarity at 30 frames per second, or if you're interested in slowing down playback, the favourable HD at 60 frames per second.

If you really want to capture the essence of your extreme sport, snap a 12MP photo. The cam has a maximum 135 degree field of view and a continuous photo mode.

The goal was to keep the Ego small and inviting. One way Liquid Image made this possible is by teaming the Ego up with your smartphone. Simply download Liquid Image's app and pair the two over WiFi. Doing so will generate a live feed, allow you to review photos and videos, and adjust the camera's settings.


Liquid Image's app is available for free on iOS and Android devices.

Sharing your intimate thrills can be done by connecting your television to the camera's miniHDMI port. Data is stored on a microSD memory card, with the Ego supporting up to 32GB of external memory.
