Bungee jumping, skydiving, mountain biking and snowboarding addicts are becoming positively spoilt for choice when it comes to videoing their every adrenaline-filled move.Latest to compete for the attentions of this select bunch of sporting nutters is Oregon Scientific, with its ATC2000. The AT bit stands for all-terrain and the C denotes camera.Strapped to your naked nut, helmet or handlebars (using the kit provided) it'll record in an agreeable 640x480 pixel resolution at 30fps – in line with most digital cameras or top-end video mobiles.The rugged build should cope with an off piste face plant, and while the 32MB of on-board memory won't stretch to much more than a quick bungee dive, the SD memory card slot will take up to 2GB for all-day filming.And there’s no need to transfer the results to a PC to earn bragging rights later – a video-out TV connection will have you screening it in the après ski bar even before the first hard earned pint is pulled.
