Nerf Cam ECS-12 Obsolete! New Nerf Camcorder Hitting Shelves

If you still weren't convinced of the lack of value presented by the Nerf Cam ECS-12 (thanks to a post from Tactical Tag), then this development should put the last nail in the coffin. Presenting the Nerf Rebelle HD Action Camcorder!

With its weatherproof case!

As with previous licensed gadgets, this is manufactured by Sakar International. Unlike many previous gadgets, this appears to originate from the Vivitar brand that Sakar purchased in 2008, a brand with a deep history in cameras, lenses, and optics in general. I myself have been using a Vivitar 787HD kit for the past two months, and it serves well as a poor man's GoPro. (Walmart link here) Needless to say, I hope that this will perform just as well.

Sadly, the packaging leaves much to be desired in terms of details, including what it considers to be HD. All I could find in terms of stats was that it has a 1.8" preview screen, a few mounts INCLUDING a blaster mount, and a charger. Yep, you can put those tactical rails to good use!

Sorry about the blurry pic. I'll get a better one ASAP.

This was hiding on a shelf at TRU for $50, and I have found nothing online about the device. Even so, I think it's safe to assume that it's of far higher quality than the 0.3 MP (640 x 480) camcorder in the Nerf Cam ECS-12. Find a Rapidstrike on sale for $30, and you have a full auto blaster with a good, rechargeable camcorder, instead of a semiauto blaster with a poor, alkaline battery-powered camera.

Ultimately, one of us will have to bite the bullet and buy one of these for testing. Even so, I think we can declare the Nerf Cam ECS-12 to be DOA.

EDIT: Thanks to user "rdewalt" from Reddit, we have more info! There's an N-Strike version as well, so as to not exclude one gender. It also has the same things in the package, and actually lists the camera specs. You know, because apparently girls don't care about that...


He'll be posting test videos in the future, so keep track of rdewalt's post!
