The Cam ECS-12 is an electronic clip system Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2014 under the N-Strike Elite series. It requires four AA batteries to operate the blaster; an additional four AA batteries are needed to power its camera.
The Cam ECS-12 is a flywheel clip system blaster, featuring the use of a acceleration trigger. It features an integrated shoulder stock, one tactical rail, and two strap points. However, its namesake features is its integrated camera fitted above the top of the blaster, which allows users to take first-person view videos during Nerf wars.
It advertises a firing range of up to ninety feet.
The Cam's built-in camera is a small 0.3 megapixel camera that can take either photos or video; videos capture at twenty frames per second. The screen itself is built above the triggers. The 1.77 inch screen shows a crosshair, possible as a means of aiming, that will not show in video or photos taken by the camera.
Buttons in front of the screen allow for the user to quickly change from taking photos to capturing video. Users can also navigate through, play back, and delete their photos or video. The button used for taking a photo or starting/stopping recording video is located on the left side of the blaster, near the front of the gray grip. An orange shade for the screen comes detached from the blaster due to packaging; it can be attached to the top of the screen to prevent sunlight glare on the screen.
The SD card slot is located just below the button dashboard.
