While the Actioncam 3 is cheap and looks robust, it does not at all work as promised.

First, the good news: picture and sound quality is good, although the FPS (frames per second) rate is rather low which makes the final movie look weird.
Now, the bad points of the Actioncam 3:
All forms of attachment for this camera are inadequate. Unless you invest an extra 30 - 50 GBP into a proper helmet mount, the camera will point into any direction but to the front. This can only be solved by extensive trial and error which is very frustrating.
Most importantly, the battery life is not 150 min but rather 40 min at best (20 min in cold weather). It is hard to handle, as it switches off after 3 min when in standby mode. As you will most likely be wearing a helmet when using a helmet cam, it is impossible to find out whether or not it records (goes from standby to recording) unless a bystander will tell you.
It also definitely needs a large memory card (mine was equipped with a 16 GB card), however, for some unknown reasons it never saved more than 8GB of files. The card itself definitely is a 16GB card. It also cuts any movie into 20 min files and sometimes stops recording after that time.
Last but not least, my Actioncam 3 did not record (or save files) for a full day despite the recording lights being switched on, which was annoying because I used it at the coolest event of the year in my sport. All the footage is gone which is sad an unnecessary. On top of everything, the Actioncam died an early death after just 3 months and 10h of filming and is irrecoverably broken.

Final verdict: Really, really bad investment. Save yourself a lot of trouble and frustration: better invest a few more pounds into a more sophisticated system (the one starting with "V" for example) and keep it for a long, long time.

I brought the action cam 3 to use while riding my supermoto
I wasn't sure what to expect for £40. It also comes with various straps etc.
Some of you will be aware that the single cylinder supermoto's vibrate like mad.
I tried the handlebar mount but it made the vid wavy, i am sure it would work on a pushbike and possibly other motorbikes but not the supermoto. (TIP) I cut the loop off the handle bar mount and fixed the mount to my visor screw, works a treat ;)

Helmet strap:
Not much good for my type of helmet as were the cam is needed the strap would have to go across my visor.

Velcro:
Included is also a sticky velcro pad, seems very strong and should hold the cam easily, i wouldn't stick it to my helmet.

I have tested the cam on a ride out and the overall quality is good in day time recording.

Sound:
Very good sound quality until i got to about 20mph (TIP) Cover the mic hole on the cam with something, i used spongy tape.
Covering the mic will stop the wind noise but engine sound and voice can still be recorded ;)

Overall a great little cam for the money.
To see the quality of this cam look on youtube.

Got the camera and all seemed fine until I tried to record a video more than about 15 minutes long. The camera went into standby then shut down and didn't write any files to the card.
A quick email to Chilli Technology and a very helpful person called Paul sent me a new firmware for the camera and now all is fine. Camera is great but not too good in low light but that is not what I need it for.

I have noticed that other people have had the same problem and returned the camera as faulty, no need to do this just email the manufacturers, a simple fix.

I have been using the camera for about 4 weeks now and it has performed well, very well for the price. It's well built and easy to operate and the video quality is acceptable. I do have a few niggles though:
1. Wind noise (I'll try the tape ideas)
2. In the handle bar mount you can't see the lights, I did accidently turn it off a couple of times mounting it and didn't realise.
3. The on video date and time imprint are really fuzzy and hard to read.

For those who are complaining about it only recording 20 minutes and switching off, what size Mini SD card were you using? 2Gb will give only 20 minutes recording time. I have bought and 8Gb and it's more than adequate for a day's commute.

I bought this product for use on my commute to work. I cycle around 9 miles each way which takes me around 35-40 minutes. With the amount of near misses I've had, I wanted a helmet camera to use as evidential video, should anything happen.

First impressions were good, the camera looks pretty heavy duty and recording short videos around the house were pretty good quality, although I couldn't pick anything up when filming in low light (this was only walking up the stairs which to the eye wasn't really too dark) but this didn't concern me as I will only be cycling in daylight until next winter.

My first commute to work didn't pan out as expected, I set if off recording when I left for work, however when I arrived, the camera was switched off entirely. Checking it on short records showed it working, so I tried it again on my commute home, and again, it had turned off when I arrived at my destination. Checking the camera showed that the files hadn't saved at all, other than the short files.

Further investigation showed that the camera only recorded for less than 20 minutes, any longer and then it would turn off and not save the video, as my commute is longer, it's not fit for purpose for me.

A work colleague also purchased this camera, his camera was also faulty so sent it off for a replacement, however the replacement was faulty too.
