In an age where surveillance cameras are rampant, there is one limitation most have which is stagnancy. Though they do have wide viewing angles, they are restricted to specific areas of scope.r

The Transcend DrivePro Body 52 Body Camera can break down those barriers with its flexibility and various features. Transcend offers a wide array of image and video capturing devices and this one goes as far as to actually stream things through the aid of security personnel.

Sneaky and effective snapping

The Transcend DrivePro Body 52 Body Camera is comprised of the main unit with a corded camera that can be attached to a person’s uniform without being noticed. The kicker is that it can capture 1920x1080p resolution videos of up to 30 fps on the go. When photos need to be captured, all it takes is a (secret) click via the main unit.

Notable as well is its ability to capture wide 130-degree views, ideal for covering large areas. Thanks to the f/1.8 aperture feature, even low-lit environments can be efficiently covered.

Settings are customizable for this body camera which can easily be attached to jackets or shirts. If not, it comes with a 360-degree rotatable clip and a touch-tab fastener that accounts for flexibility of placement.

The main unit can either be hidden or clipped on to the belt of users for ease of operation. The Transcend DrivePro Body 52 Body Camera boasts of IPX4 rating meaning it is shock and water-resistant.

The Transcend DrivePro Body 52 Body Camera offers individual users up to 32 GB of internal storage while its 1530 mAh battery is good for 3.5 hours of use.

One camera is of course not enough and this is where the Transcend 6-port DrivePro Body Docking Stations comes in.

With the dock, up to 3 Transcend DrivePro Body 52 Body Camera can be charged and upload all recorded data to a computer. An auto-backup function is present which runs while the cams are being charged.
