Nikon KeyMission 80 Action Camera Preview

Nikon's most budget-friendly new Action Cam, the KeyMission 80, is waterproof down to 3.2 ft., shockproof for up to 6 ft. falls, and freezeproof down to 14° F (-10° C) and features a smartphone styled dual camera setup. The main camera boasts a 12MP CMOS image sensor mated to a 25mm-equivalent f/2.0 lens capable of recording Full 1080p HD videos at 30 frames-per-second. For selfies and 720p HD videos, you can activate the front-face 5MP camera with its slightly wider 22mm-equivalent f/2.2 lens.

This camera has been specifically designed for one-handed use, or to be worn as a body cam. Related, there's a setting that powers on the camera every time you take it out of its case so it's ready to go at a moment's notice.

Like the KeyMission 170, the KeyMission 80 features a 1.75" LCD display, but this one's a touchscreen for added convenience. While the other two newly announced Action Cams have an exclusive app, the KeyMission 80 uses the cam's built-in Wi-Fi to access the standard Nikon SnapBridge app that works with many other Nikon products. Use this app to transfer files as well as to remotely control the KeyMission 80.
