  • Replay XD Races All-New Prime X into the Action Cam Arena


    Replay XD Prime X Action Camera - mounted

    Replay XD announced the upcoming release of the Replay XD Prime X this week. The Prime X is the fourth generation of robust action cameras from Replay XD, and it looks to improve on the success of previous models in a number of ways.

    Sticking with the highly-placeable column-shaped body style, the Prime X doesn’t appear terribly different from previous generations at first glance. Closer inspection will reveal a number of minor aesthetic and ergonomic changes, adding up to a nicely finessed design. The buttons are easier to press, the textures are thoughtfully employed and the rear control panel gives the user far greater feedback as to what the camera is set to do.

    The magic of the Prime X, though, is in the major changes added internally.

    The bulk of the interior of the camera is used to house a much larger and higher capacity 1700 mAh battery. The result is more than double the life of previous generations, with up to 3.5 hours of operation on a single charge. That charging has improved as well, with a rapid charge feature that cuts charging time in half.
