MOHOC is an Elite Ops Military and Tactical Camera is the camera I am the proud owner for over a year now. I got one for myself just before IWA 2016 and I met the owner of MOHOC company last year. So this year when I came around to say hi I stumbled upon such a wide range of useful accessories that I was speechless.
As you know the design of this camera goes way back and it is a bit of a mystery of itself. When it was launched in 2016 there was not a big press conference but I just appeared on shot show and then later the same year in Nuremberg at the IWA 2016 show.
And in my opinion is the BEST camera any serviceman or airsofter can have.
I use it when working and practicing with Red Cross Slovenia as a medic, I use it every weekend when playing airsoft with my club, I use it to film my driving around and it functions as my dash camera, I use it when visiting museums with my girlfriend.
Bottom line is that this camera is the most practical camera ever. You don’t need no fancy mounting options as for GoPro or Contour or any other camera on the market. Only thing you need is a bit of velcro and you are good to go. And that my friends is only the top of the mountain of awesome characteristics that the camera possesses.
It’s simple one handed operation is possible even when using winter gloves.
It’s battery compartment accepts the standard LiIon battery and you know what it also accepts two CR123A batteries. So you will never run out of power in the field.
It also has the rotating lens so no matter how you orient it you will always get the best shot possible.
And me must not forget that all the functions of the camera can be controlled throughout the designated MOHOC app you can install on your Android or Apple phone. Works through WiFi or BlueTooth. So if you want to change some settings on the fly (leveling the lens with the help of the live feed) or change the resolution of your videos and then review them you only need this app installed.
The features go on and on so here are some press releases that are more of the technical nature.
