LAS VEGAS--As I've said before , it's not often that I get to cover surf-related tech, so when CNET's Kent German told me Oregon Scientific had a new video camera for surfboards, you'd better believe I bolted over to the company's booth to check it out.

The ATCMini Action Video Camera is Oregon Scientific's latest action cam, and it's one of the lightest ones yet at just 2.3 ounces. This means it won't weigh you down when you're trying to capture all your thrills and spills as you're surfing, biking, skating, snowboard, etc.

The video camera shoots 720p HD video at 30 frames per second and has a 110-degree wide-angle field of view. It can also capture 1.3-megapixel photos and has a built-in mic. With only three controls--power, camera, camcorder--the device should be pretty easy to use, and once you're done shooting your masterpiece, you can transfer and share your video via TV-out or USB.

The ATCMini is available now for $149.99 and comes with a silicone protective cover and a hard-shell helmet mount. However, there are additional accessories, such as a surf mount and a handlebar mount, available for purchase, with prices ranging from $23.99 to $31.99.
