    3.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera with few weak points 25 Jun 2009
    By Rene
    Colour Name:Silver|Size Name:Action Cam
    I bought this camera for using it on a motorcycle, The rubber band could be a tiny bit longer for the crash helmet. It worked at the end, but was really tough.
    The movie quality is not bad, a bit corny and sometimes weird colours. But in general good enough for this price. It even kept recording in tunnels and you can actually see something there as well. This was good.
    I am using this camera with a 16GB card, this was more than enough for a week holiday in Norway with lots of recording. The batteries, well. Could be better. I would guess after 30 to 40 minutes or so even the best batteries are done.
    My main issue was actually, how do I know that I am recording? No chance to see the blinking camera symbol whilst riding the bike. Not even in the mirrors. And the little infraredonly blinks in stand by, once starting recording it is off. But it is also off when the camera switched off because of low battery. Guess I missed some nice scenery because of that.
    I would recommend to buy this camera because it can handle up to 32GB cards and that I did not find anywhere else. The picture quality is good enough, sound quality at least for me not so important. The handling issue and the battery life, after a while you get used to it and I always put some fresh batteries before I arrive at a nice spot.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Value and Suprising Quality 9 Nov 2009
    By JHF
    Colour Name:Silver|Size Name:Action Cam
    I bought this to see how i got on with filming mountain biking with the idea of getting a more expensive model if i got along with it. Well i have to say i am v impressed. The footage is superb, sound is ok but from what i have seen with my friends ones (Which are far more expensive) is very simular. you can put up to 32gb micro sd card in although i have found an 8gb good enough to cover me for 2 hours trailing so far. Please note you can change the quality at which the camera records so dont get dismayed when first trying if you have not changed it to the higher recording quality. I kinda agree with the last review in the sense it would be nice to be able to check whether it is recording without taking it off but i know there are models out there that make this easier but the point is they aint this price! Plus, i just wait until i get to the main points i want to capture, stop, make sur e it is recording and set off with no probs to date!
    All in all, i am amazed at the quality for the price and recommend to anyone wishing to capture those crazy moments without forking loads of money on a more expensive model. It is defo one to buy for the kids if they like there outdoors sports and you wish to give them a v cool present at a good price for you.
    Minor weak points = No batteries or memory card supplied but hey, at that price! Helmet strap could be slightly longer so needs some strength on certain helmets, may need to help the kids!

    1.0 out of 5 stars waste of time, effort, money etc... 13 Oct 2011
    By JBS10
    Colour Name:Silver| Size Name:Action Cam|Verified Purchase
    Arrived poorly packaged with no protection, USB didn't work had to use a SD card reader to see what I'd filmed which was blurred with no audio. Battery got stuck took a while to get out. Cheap rubbish got no support from manufacturer !! I would advise you shell out for a more expensive camera, sent it back to Amazon!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for the money 12 Jan 2010
    Colour Name:Silver|Size Name:Action Cam
    Used this small head camera whilst Snowboarding, for the money, it's great value. If the unit has not been used for 5 or 10 minutes the unit automatically switches-off to save battery life which helps when your not sure if it's on or not and conserves battery life. I used Re-chargeable batteries when Snowboarding as the cold weather does reduce battery life (apparently this is just a fact, cold does effect batteries!). There is a light that flashes before recording so I could ask my friends if it was on standby and ready for recording (as the camera is on your head, it's easier to check with your friends to see if it is on standby). One Button record is easy and I edited the footage and placed music over the footage when I got back through windows media software. For the money it's a good honest product - and was pleased with the footage recorded.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Head cam used for skiing 10 Feb 2010
    Colour Name:Silver|Size Name:Action Cam
    The quality of the recordings are above expected for such a well priced camera. Lots of colour, and very vivid.
    The strap supplied is barely long enough to fit around a skiing helmet.
    Battery life, (2 x AAA), is shockingly bad. I used at altitudes between 2000m and 3500m and the batteries lasted 30 minutes maximum. It is very diffiult to know when the unit is recording - you will need a partner to advise you unless you are happy to take the camera off your head to keep checking. My camera also randomly kept shutting off - i put this down to cold temperatures and altitude.

    Overall, an excellent piece of fun - the footage I did get was very good, even if it didnt work all the time or didnt give a true representation of the speed i was travelling...;)

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun 21 Mar 2010
    By Barney
    Colour Name:Silver|Size Name:Action Cam
    Length: 1:20 Mins
    The head cam works well but there is no way to see the results until you get it back to a computer. A bit of testing and adjusting of the camera angle will help. The clip shows the head cam being worn and then the view from the head cam. The picture quality is not bad for a sub £30 bit of kit.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for the price.....but only just! 6 Dec 2009
    By Joseph
    Colour Name:Silver| Size Name:Action Cam|Verified Purchase
    In general this camera is good enough, considering the great price. However, I'm not sure if that justifies the frustration involved in using it!

    It comes with a pathetically small instruction sheet that tells you next to nothing. You are left to figure out the cryptic display icons yourself. I still don't know what the boxes round the outside mean (apparently not battery life). Really, the only thing you need from the display is whether the camera icon is flashing or not (which means recording or not). There is a small pointless white LED under the camera, that seems to flash whenever it gets bored.

    The headband is fine. It works on just a bare head with no helmet. The camera is on a "click-mount" that means you can rotate it 360 degrees perpendicular to the orientation of the head band, in 15 degree increments. It can sometimes be hard to know if the camera is looking at the same thing you are. Also, you can't see the display when it is on your head, so you can't be exactly sure if it is recording. It does make a beeping noise when you start recording. Unfortunately, the sounds for "start recording", "stop recording" and "off" are virtually indistinguishable - especially with other noises going on. It is a rather chunky device, and you look like a Borg (especially with the light).

    There are two buttons; one for "on", "start recording" and "stop recording", the other button for "delete last recording". The delete function is utterly useless. In fact, it is a hazard, because you only have to press it for a second and it deletes the entire last file (which may have been hours long), without any second chance or ability to undo. I have lost several good videos that way (especially touching the camera when it is on the side of my head).
