9 inches high. Mount the camera, position the lenses to your liking, and record. It’s easy to use. When you’re done, you have both camera angles combined into one MP4 file. The bad: The Chameleon does nothing else other than create videos with two different camera angles, and only creates split-screen movies.
Also, if you need the Chameleon to be waterproof, there’s a housing that’s good down to 200 feet I misspoke in the video shown at the top of this review. If you desire to do time-lapse videos, take pictures, shoot high-speed clips for slow-motion movies, or even just capture the video from a single camera, this is not for you.8 inches long by 1.
But, that simplicity will certainly be a selling point for some. A clip attached to the bottom of the camera slides into the mounts. Outside of that, there is only one control for the camera: a gigantic Record switch on top. And then you’ll need some basic video-editing skills to combine what’s captured, especially if you desire to throw both camera views in the video at the similar time.
7 inches broad by 1. Slide it forward and after a few seconds the camera turns on and starts recording, giving off a couple beeps and turning the record light from yellow to red. The bottom line: The dual-camera Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon is a good idea, but the execution and the overall feature set are lacking. Basically, all you need to do is pop in a microSD card cards up to 32GB are supported, but not included, charge it up, and you’re ready to go.
The battery is built in, capable of recording up to 2 hours of continuous video on a single charge. Creating a compelling action cam video is easier — not essential, but easier — when you have two cameras shooting a topic from two different angles.The concept of the Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon is certainly a good one.The good: 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.
Each camera can be rotated 180 degrees — one horizontally, one vertically — and has a fish-eye lens covering a 110-degree angle of view. Video quality is merely OK, lacking detail and quite gelatinous. That, of course, requires buying two cameras and possibly mounts or other accessories for those cameras. The Chameleon, however, puts two cameras in one body.

A door on the side covers a Micro-USB port for charging and transferring videos, a microSDHC card slot, status button for battery life and storage, and a switch for choosing between having the video from the two cameras appear stacked vertically or side by side.

Although Oregon Scientific only has a handful of mounts designed for the Chameleon, the tripod mount means you can use mounts from other manufacturers. No editing required. The splash-proof plastic body weighs only 4. A tripod mount is included, so you can use it with more than the little selection of available mounts.
