Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon review:

 

The concept of the Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon is certainly a good one.

The Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon action cam puts two cameras in one splash-proof body, allowing you to capture two different angles simultaneously for one video. It's simple to use. A tripod mount is included, so you can use it with more than the...

The Chameleon does nothing else other than create videos with two different camera angles, and only creates split-screen movies. Video quality is merely OK, lacking detail and quite gelatinous.

The dual-camera Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon is a good idea, but the execution and the overall feature set are lacking.

Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon

 

The Oregon Scientific Chameleon is an affordable action camcorder with two separate 170-degree cameras. Read more in this review.

You get two separate 170-degree videos, which is unprecedented coverage for a single action camcorder

You can't split the video to watch one view at a time, so you're forced to watch both views simultaneously. Also, it can't record in 1080p, and its maximum frame rate is 30 fps

The Chameleon's two-camera design is interesting, but its lack of additional shooting and editing options is its Achilles' heel.
