Zeal HD2 Camera Goggles
The Zeal HD2 Camera Goggles catch your every move when you’re gliding down the slopes and once you’re done you can watch back the footage of your incredible journey, in HD – which really is an amazing experience. Go Pro have, more or less, been the dominating extreme sports camera and has a huge appeal to snow sports. However, the biggest flaw of the Go Pro, in regards to snow sports, is that it is really clunky, it looks incredibly bulky and can so often get knocked by something when mounted on a helmet, even the battery life and sound quality aren’t great, things have been greatly improved for the GoPro Hero 4 and is significantly less bulky. We definitely love the Go Pro range, but the Zeal HD2 Camera Goggles look set to give other competitors a real run for their money.

You can forget about mounting a camera on your head with the Zeal HD2 Camera Goggles – shooting 12mp photographs and 1080p HD video right from the camera at the top of it’s frame you will not miss a single bit of snowboarding or skiing action. You may be wondering how the Zeal HD2 Camera Goggles can produce such high quality imagery – well, the integrated camera produces a 170-degree, wide-angle view and automatically adjusts exposure when light changes. The infinity focus makes sure that every image and frame is a sharp as the next. If you take a hard hit in the snow then the scratch resistant lens and impact-resistant frame reduces any damage done on impact. The multiple vents in the lens and the anti-fog coating makes sure that no moisture is left in the goggles, giving you and the tiny camera clear vision at all times meaning that you won’t constantly be wiping the steam from your visor.
The body is built with high-impact plastic and the strap is thick and rubberised, meaning it’s unlikely to slide off your skull like some cheaper goggles. What makes this product unique is that you can see exactly what the camera sees through a small viewfinder inside the goggle and operate the Zeal goggles using the shutter buttons found on the side of the goggles, which are extremely easy to navigate around.
The Zeal HD2 Camera Goggles aren’t just an object of desire because of the recording capability – the goggles are well designed for the most comfortable fit during the action and would be appealing to any skier or snowboarder looking to buy a durable pair of goggles. They come with a dual strap system that allows for plenty of adjustment so you can determine the best fit and the double-breasted layer of silicon on the strap keeps your goggles securely in place around your hat or helmet.
