November 9, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Clicking highly volatile events underwater can be a daunting task. More so, if you don’t have the right gear. Professionals might have already applied their minds on the Go Pro Hero 2 that boasted 1080p capturing abilities, even under water.

But then, with the Go Pro Hero 2, you were concerned about the need for an extra protective housing while deploying the device for some cool underwater shots. And, that indeed had made you wish for a waterproof digicam that clicks away with no water hassles to trouble you.

Looks like the gear you wished for has arrived. The ATC Mini, from Oregon Scientific, is one awesome snapper that can work under water without getting wet. Oregon Scientific has developed this 720p HD waterproof camera that works smoothly under water.

The ATC Mini comes with a hard silicone casing that protects it in from fall, crashes and every hassle that might come across. It is equipped with a 110 degree field view lens that can be put to play when you need to capture significant moments, even if they happen up to 20m deep under water.

The ATC Mini comes with a removable 32GB micro SD card that can store 1.5 hours of HD video. The 70g device is backed by a rechargeable Lithium battery that can be easily replaced.

It sports a mini USB port, built-in microphone and TV out option. The camera mounting systems for helmets, handle bars, surfboards and tripods will allow the user to click away to glory all those awesome moments.

ATC Mini is priced at £199.99 (around $320) is expected to arrive in shops in the UK soon. However, we haven’t yet got wind of what the company plans for markets outside the UK.

Though the price happens to be a tad higher than the $300 Go Pro Hero 2, the ease in handling when submerged in water might be one strong feature that would lure you to go for it.

Are you adding this one to your shopping list any soon?
