A fantastic dive camera, aimed specifically at scuba diving, freediving and spearfishing. The camera doesn't have a screen but is very easy to handle and place on the side of your mask if you want a head POV. It has an easy to use interface even with thick diving gloves on and captures fantastic video footage for such a small device.

Cycliqs 4th generation rear camera light and camera combo, the Cycliq Fly 6 CE. A new, more stylist look with a new velcro fastener which seems better than the previous rubber attempts. You get the smart looping mode which has been improved in this version and the solid video features that Cycliq has always had.

Cycliqs 2nd generation front bike light and camera combo, the Cycliq Fly 12 CE. A new, more stylist look with a new quarter/1/8th turn mount which seems better than the previous attempts. You get the smart looping mode which has been improved in this version and the solid video features that Cycliq has always had, all with a 600lumen light which is more than powerful enough for riding even on unlit country roads.
