The high-precision lens of the Sportsline 60 captures sea-life or squeaky ducks as a still image at a resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels, and at 1280 x 720 pixels (30 frames per second) in video mode. The focal length of 8.5 mm corresponds to 64 mm in standard 35 mm format.

Water droplets simply roll of the 2.5" colour TFT LC display. The camera is guaranteed impact-resistant up to a height of one metre, making it suitable for any type of outdoor activity.
