With the success of the GoPro and newly released accessories for your cellphone such as the Hitcase, who would have thought that Shimano would join the growing action sports camera market? While I doubt the HItcase or the Shimano CM-1000 will be “GoPro killers”, I still think it’s nice to see some more options in the market.
The CM-1000 is equipped with 16 megapixels and capable of full 1080p HD video. It’s also able to achieve either a 180 or 135 degree field of view and is compatible with both Android and iOS. Stay tuned for the CM-1000 to drop this May for about $300.
