Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon action cam is fun, but flawed

The concept of the Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon is certainly a good one.

Creating a compelling action cam video is easier — not necessary, but easier — when you have two cameras shooting a subject from two different angles. That, of course, requires buying two cameras and possibly mounts or other accessories for those cameras. And then you’ll need some basic video-editing skills to combine what’s captured, especially if you want to throw both camera views in the video at the same time.

The Chameleon, however, puts two cameras in one body. Each camera can be rotated 180 degrees — one horizontally, one vertically — and has a fish-eye lens covering a 110-degree angle of view. Mount the camera, position the lenses to your liking, and record. When you’re done, you have both camera angles combined into one MP4 file. No editing required.
