The action camera revolution continues to take over the ski slopes. Apart from the market-leading action cameras such as GoPro, the Zeal HD2 is perhaps the most seamless way of capturing and sharing your winter adventures. Yes, for its price of 499 Dollars you can buy a GoPro plus a pair of decent goggles but you will have to fiddle with all the camera’s accessories and mounts. This Zeal camera goggle however offers a more integrated solution to those of us who want to be subtle with their video recording.
Completely redesigned for 2015 the HD2 has improved on some of the complaints users had with regards to the overall frame size and camera controls. The frame isn’t as bulky as the original and the camera’s buttons are now larger and more intuitive to use. Another major improvements is that the goggles are now able to connect wirelessly to your phone, allowing you to share your on-mountain videos and photos directly via the free mobile app. Combined with the new integrated viewfinder and enhanced lens technology, the HD2 is definitely one goggle you don’t want to miss out on.
The goggle itself offers Zeal’s famous optical clarity and gives you a good face protection against bright light, sun blazing days and provides good contrast when the sun disappears. Its smaller, lighter frame is designed to fit more people. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that you may spend some extra time updating future firmware to continue to get the most out of the Zeal HD2 camera goggle.
