V.I.O. has released a HD version of their popular tactical point of view camera the POV HD and it now records native 1080p resolution. The new POV HD looks like the original VIO but has plenty going on inside with the ability to record up to five hours of H.264 video, including 1080p content at 30fps or 720p at 60fps, while the lens is capable of capturing a 142-degree field-of-view in the 1080p mode. Look to pay around $599 for the POV HD.
