Underwater ROV With 4K Camera Reaches Crowdfunding Goal

Ever dreamed about diving while accompanied by an ROV that can take pictures in 4K?

Well, the builders of the CCROV launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo earlier this month and have already reached their US$20,000/17,812 Euro goal.

Equipped with a 4K camera and waterproof down to 100 meters/328 feet, the CCROV‘s builders wanted to provide a professional experience at a lower cost. With its 4K ultra HD camera, the CCROV allows live HD video transmission to tablets or smartphones (and there’s an app available for both Android and iOS).  You can even connect it to a VR headset to enjoy the adventure in 3D.

The CCROV is also really maneuverable, being able to be controlled to move forwards/backwards, up/down, right/left, yaw, and roll.

The camera allows you to take Ultra HD Videos in 4K and still pictures in 16 megapixels. It also sports a Sony IMX206 sensor, and can send a live video stream to phones or tablets.

Think such a unit would be heavy or bulky? Not this one. The CCROV is 208mm x 204mm x 130mm (8.18 inches x 8.03 inches x 5.11 inches) and weighs 4.5kg (9.9lbs). It can be easily carried in a backpack or a suitcase, even placed under your airplane seat.
