NEW YORK, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 164-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Roadtrip Video Recorder, a video camera that sets up in a car and provides hands-free visual and audio documentation of travels.

The Roadtrip Video Recorder has a suction cup mount that attaches to a window or the dashboard and the device records color video at 640 x 480 resolution.

"The Roadtrip Video Recorder enables travelers to record their journeys while eliminating the hassle of constantly holding or adjusting a video camera," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The unit's lens has a 120 degree viewing angle, an 8X zoom, and integrated motion detection that automatically prompts the video camera to begin recording when the car is moving.

The Roadtrip Video Recorder has a 2.4" LCD viewfinder that rotates 270 degrees, enabling travelers to monitor what's being recorded or view stored video, and four infrared LEDs allow nighttime video recording. The video files are recorded in AVI format and stored on the included 2 GB SD card (supports up to a 32 GB SD card that records up to three hours of video).

The Roadtrip Video Recorder's battery provides up to two hours of video recording after a two-hour charge via the car outlet, and the device also captures still photographs.

The Roadtrip Video Recorder is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $129.95. For more information about this product, please visit http://www.hammacher.com/81555 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
