With a 136-degree field of view, this hybrid scuba mask/videocam sees everything you do and then some. That makes aiming a lot simpler. Throw it on and you’re ready to capture hands-free 720p video and 5-megapixel photos that rival pro work from just a few years back. Even while we were diving in wretched conditions to research oil-spill damage in the Gulf of Mexico—where a death grip on an anchor line was the only thing keeping us from being swept out to sea—the mask stayed sealed. Control was a cinch, too, including switching between video and still modes.
