The main buttons are positioned along the upper right side of the frame. A third button sits on the lower right side to activate a high power LED flashlight. The LED flashlight adds illumination underwater when required.

The Camera operates on an internal rechargeable Lithium Battery. The battery performance for video is approximately 1:30 hrs of video. The internal memory has 2GB and will to record approximately 3,000 still images or 45 minutes of video. A High Speed USB/Recharger cable is provided to transfer files to a computer and to recharge the battery.

The Freestyle Series Video Camera Swim Goggle model 330 is estimated to ship in July 2010. This new model follows the concept of the original Liquid Image Underwater Digital Camera Mask by creating an easier way to record photos and videos. The concept of integrating the camera into the sports equipment allows the user to travel with fewer items and to keep their hands free while performing sports activities. The integrated camera records a view similar to what is seen, allowing the user to share their experience with other people, and to enjoy their activities to a greater extent because they concentrate less on holding and operating the camera.

The Freestyle Series Video Camera Swim Goggle model number 330 has an estimated US price of $99.
