Camcorder gift guide for Mother’s Day

We've rounded up camcorders for every type of mum: from technophobes to soccer moms

The extreme sports mum: Oregon Scientific ATC3K Action Camera (RRP: $249.99)

The Oregon Scientific ATC3K Action Camera is best suited to outdoor mums who habitually force their family to go on punishing nature hikes and grim kayaking adventures. If your mother has never seen a river she couldn’t cross or a mountain she couldn’t ski down, this camcorder has her name written all over it (in sweat and blood, probably).

The ATC3K Action Camera consists of an all-in-one rubberised unit that can be attached to helmets, boats or bike handles with the supplied accessories. It’s knock-proof, freeze-proof and even waterproof (to a depth of around three metres). In other words, it’s tough enough to remain by her side long after the rest of the family has begged off/wimped out.

Check out our in-depth review of the Oregon Scientific ATC3K Action Camera.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
