The vision for Siren X1 was to create an eye-catching device that captures fast paced action and unseen angles of the fight below the waterline.
The Siren X-1 is a dual-facing action camera designed for fishing enthusiasts who want to capture their fishing adventures in greater detail. The twin 60 FPS, 1080p cameras capture footage facing both towards and away from the fisherman to capture the two sides of the fight. The device provides previously unobtainable, fast-paced action on the fight below the waterline, as well as the retrieval fight on the boat.
Ease of use was at the forefront of the design process, resulting in a seamless attachment mechanism that ensures a fast and easy camera setup on the fishing line. This mechanism also prevents the camera from going down with the catch in the event of a snapped line. Once in the water, the Siren X-1 camera has inbuilt buoyancy to allow it to float upright to film the angler in action and the fish being retrieved. It also has various mounting options, allowing the camera to be attached to almost any surface for multiple uses.
Siren is a start-up company created by fishing enthusiasts Phil West and Calum McPherson. Ingenuity and Siren worked closely for two years, developing and refining the X-1 from concept to working prototypes tested in real-world conditions. Siren has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this product to the broader fishing enthusiast market.
