Vacation is the worst time to ruin your phone, and yet it’s constantly in your hand capturing all those memories. The YoCam Waterproof Camera offers an appealing alternative to travelers intent on capturing a piece of the action.

This tiny action cam is small enough to fit in your top pocket, and weighs less two ounces. But it packs a punch, allowing you to take superb HD video and 8MP stills. And best of all, it’s totally resistant to water up to 20 feet under the surface, and can survive a swim at the beach.

The YoCam starts recording with the touch of a button. It’s fixed-focus lens that has a 140-degree field of view. You can leave it to record unattended or take full manual control. The rechargeable battery allows for two hours of continuous recording.

The magic really happens when you pair the camera with your phone. You can use the companion app to utilize live video preview, stabilization, HDR, and camera control, along with intelligent video editing features and social media sharing. You can also hook up YoCam to the Mac app for big-screen editing.

The Daily Dot Store has YoCam now for $179 with free shipping to the U.S. The price includes a clip, pendant cord, and sync cable, all totaling $21 off MSRP. Order now to start filming this summer.
