Notes on the Pentax W80 and the Olympus 8000 Tough

Battery Life
WINNER - The Olympus 8000 Tough

WINNER - Pentax W80 - 32 minutes
Olympus Tough - 17 minutes video at 30 frames per second

High Definition
The Pentax W80 can shoot High Definition at 30 frames per second, but is limited to 11 minutes per movie at this quality.

The Pentax W80 High Definition movie mode captures footage at a frame size of 1280 x 720 giving a more rectangular frame than the standard 640 x 480 30 frames per second mode. This results in a slightly cropped image - worth bearing in mind if you want to have a wide angle view to your movies.

Launch date News

Although we were hoping for a February launch, a few minor changes to make the Flymount EVEN BETTER have put us back a bit. We are now looking at March / April. We apologise for the delay, but rest assured it will be worth it. Join our mailing list for further updates.

Use the Flymount with any camera

Use the Flymount with any camera with a standard tripod mounting point.

Our five top tips for great Flymount photography
  • Capture your self or somebody else in the frame
  • Use the infinity focus mode on your camera
  • Use the count down timer when shooting outdoors
  • Use the Flymount's versatility to try shooting from unusual positions
  • Take advantage of your camera's interval shoot mode (if possible) to capture high resolution action photos.
