Small, compact, sturdy, waterproof, easy to fit with a very good anti shake system. Ideal for motorcycle footage. Easily fitted to bike or helmet this camera is worth every penny!

Best action camera i have seen! I ordered this on the 23rd of December at around 5pm, then i didn't expect to see this until after Christmas, but i received it the very next day at about 9.30am! and i only opted for he free 3-5 business day delivery! Delighted.

Only one con though, it is very hard to get a good position when mounting to your front windshield on the inside.

Other than that, it's an amazing camera!! high;y recommended!!

This is a fantastic bit of kit for scuba divers. Waterproof to 60M. Even without the flat lens results are stunning for what it is. The helmet straps go well around a diving lamp providing enough illumination for most dives.
In blue water the results would be mind blowing.
I can't recommend it highly enough and I'm a very picky person about dive kit.

I bought this particular camera for Mountain Biking, Surfing and Snowboarding and although I bought the Motorsports edition, it just happened to be about £50 cheaper than the naked camera or the Helmet version. The package itself came with some really useful adapters, and anything else you might need can be bought separately easily enough. Overall I am very pleased with the quality of this camera, particularly in 720p (60fps) mode. I have tried 960p (30fps) and 1080p (30fps) but I have found the playback of the footage to be a bit choppy, perhaps if you have a really powerful PC, then this might not be an issue. I'm editing my footage on a laptop with a Intel Core2Duo 2.4GHz processor, 4GB RAM and a 256mb Nvidia GeForce 8600M-GT running Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit and find 1080p footage far too choppy. The quality of the video in 720p is more than adequate though and plays back perfectly. The Camera encodes the files as MP4(H.264) and will take up to a 32GB SD Card. The battery lasts around 4 hours on full charge and a 32GB SD Card will store about 8 hours of footage in 720p mode. In direct sunlight, the camera does suffer a little with glare but you can find aftermaret Polarized filters on the internet for less than a tenner and these make a big difference. I'm also considering buying a flat lens for Scuba Diving because the fish eye lens does some really weird things to the focus under water. I had considered the slightly cheaper Contour HD but there are far more mounting options for the Go Pro and from the results, I have definitely made the right choice. I've also started noticing these little cameras all over the place. Especially on various TV programs where a film crew just isn't practical.

The camera is great, the video quality is amazing for such small camera, has a nice battery life.

What is good:
- Great video quality during the day
- Great battery life
- Has HD
- Rigging gear is good
- Easy to charge (common plug, mini-USB)
- Uses a simple SD card (it's always nice to have standards applied)

Here are the painpoints:

- The interface is a little complicated, I think that it would not harm to better design the front screen. But it's not a major issue.
- The night quality could be better. Are you planning to video at night. Forget it. It's very noisy.
- The lack of a back screen means that you need to go off your experience with the camera to get useful images with it.

Bought this to take it underwater. I had to change the housing lens but I knew about the problems with this before I bought it. I am very impressed with the results and it has become my favourite toy. Shame the HD GoPro 2 has come out so soon after I bought this one as I have to upgrade. And the housing is supposed to be ok underwater on the 2.

The best action camera you can get for R/C flying or other sports
Mounted mine on a quad and the aerial footage was just awsome in full HD

This is a surpringly good little video cam. Used quite extensivly by TV for non-live images in hard to film places. I have noticed them on BBC Top Gear type programmes for example or in mini subs documentary, even news reports. It's auto focus and has a couple of meter settings (general/point) though as the car comes out of a tunnel it can get "blinded" for a second or so.
It does look bulky but is surprisingly easy to fit. I have the Motorsport version with a sucker and various permenatnt fixing brackets (ie once attached you leave it and clip on the cam as needed. NB its only the accs that change in the kits, cam is the same.

Whats in the box: An HD video camera with mount attachments, packaged nicely in a perspex box with various AV/jack +USB cables. The camera itself (within the waterproof housing) is pretty light and doesnt look like much. The menu system is very basic. A 2 button scrolling menu with many settings all made shown as initials. (a bit like scrolling through a basic alarm clock menu) You will need to keep the key instructions safe or you will get lost!
There is now a firmware update that adds 3or so functions so write them down. Good support site with easy to follow videos update for installation.
Don't expect high speech sound, its designed to pick up and filter engine sounds etc

Pros: Really nice quality optic, colour and definition. Though wide angle it doesnt over deform, even quite close up. The car sucker holds firm (there doesnt seem to be any "give" or movement in the sucker once attached). Waterproof!

Cons: Obviously the pricing (hence the missing star I am willing to pay for quality but it feels a bit too steep) of the initial kits and the accs that you buy after, but to be fair i have found it quite sturdy.
