Product Description

Product Description

Capture all the action with this Monoprice MHD Action Camera. This camera boasts a full, high-definition 1920 by 1080p resolution with 24-bit colour depth at 30 frames per second. It can also be set to capture at the lower 1280 by 720p, 24-bit resolution with 30 fps. It features an ultra-wide 120 degree field of view, so you can really get up close and personal with your shots. The camera is waterproof to depths up to 10 metres without a separate outer enclosure. It is also shock, dust and freeze proof, all features that are necessary in an extreme sports action camera. A waterproof microphone allows you to capture the entire audio/video experience. A two-axis gyroscopic sensor ensures that the video maintains the proper orientation. It comes with a mounting bracket and can also be mounted onto a standard 1/4 inches by 20 threaded mount, giving you maximum flexibility in how you use it.

A one-touch slide switch is used to start and stop recordings. The switch is about 1 inches long by 3/8 inches wide, so you can easily start and stop a recording without having to remove your gloves. A locking and removable cap on the rear of the unit gives access to the resolution selection switch (FHD or HD), the hardware reset button, the micro-SD card slot, which can accommodate a card up to 32 GB size, the mini-B USB port for charging and data sync and a Micro HDMI port for direct video output to an HDTV. The internal battery has sufficient charge to allow up to 3 hours of continuous recording and up to 6 hours of standby mode.

In addition to being used as a video camera, the MHD Action Camera is also a 5 megapixel still camera. A large button on the top of the unit is used to snap pictures in Single Photo, Burst and Time Lapse modes with 24-bit colour depth. The camera has plug and play operation and is automatically recognized as a storage device by Windows and Mac computers. Integrated software can be installed to a Mac or Windows PC to allow access to the internal settings. The software is compatible with Windows XP SP3 or later or Mac OS X 10.5 or later. The camera weighs only 3.9 ounces and measures 3-3/4 inches length by 1-1/2 inches width by 1-7/8 inches height.

I reviewed this item on the techmoan prior to purchasing it. The reviews by this man are comprehensive and practical and he gave it a positive thumbs up. This encouraged me to purchase the camera and I have not been disappointed since doing so. The quality of the results is fantastic!

BUY BUY BUY - under £75 for a camera that is water and shock proof (1080p and upto 16MP stills camera) I'm using this on my MTB and Dog scooter and it's the business. Never gonna win an Oscar but I can use the money I saved for better things. and for the record - this camera is identical to the Ion Pro Air (only much cheaper) and it uses MOST of their accessories and mounts, I ordered the helmet and sucker mounts to attach to other things.

PS the battery lasts 2-3 hours so a 16GB micro sd card is enough (class 10)

very good value, just think about what you want it for. If you need exceptional low light performance - go and spend £400. if its mainly daytime shooting you do, this camera is tough and versatile and sports a standard 1/4 - 20 tripod mount. This means that getting or making innovative mounting solutions is pretty easy. File are produced in .mov format, very Mac compatible. I don't know how it would work with Windows. I might buy another one ;-)

Could never get the camera to generate a playable video with the Class 10 32gb card it was ordered with
(got this weird "error 2002: a bad public movie atom was found in the movie (abc.mov)" when trying to play anything recorded on to the 32gb),

....but mSD card itself checked out fine in other devices. Sourced 2 other class 10 microSD cards - an 8 and 16gb - and it APPEARED to work ok.

However, recordings are fine for the first 5-6 minutes, then full on blank screen glitched for about 30 sec then settled into a repeating loop of clear>light grey haze > deep gray haze>glitch>glitch>clear.
My longest recording was 22 minutes and this cycle repeated throughout the remaining 17 minutes after it started at 5 min in.

Symptoms were the same tested :

1: using 3 different microSD cards - 2 of class10s and 1 of class4
2: when data has been copied off the mSD card onto disc - i.e. playing directly off Hard disc
3: using 3 different PC players - Windows Media player (which can't produce sound off any video produced by this camera - declared on Monoprice's website), Quicktime, and VLC.

....so problem is with the camera, not the media. Maybe some buffering issue?

I'm hoping that some other purchasers of this camera will say whether they had similar problems or not, as the camera performance before it started glitching was great for its price bracket in both daylight AND low light (as this was to be a vehicle / riding camera).

I've given it one star only because THIS ONE was faulty, so if others haveN'T had this problem, then I'd certainly try another one and suggest its worth purchasing, but Amazon only gave the choice of Refund when I went through the returns process.

I bought this for Tough Mudder as a way of taking photos and videos to remember the experience.
The battery lasted for the 3 hours 15 minutes that it took to complete the course. Videos look sharp in full HD, Photos are nice and clear.

The camera has also been down to 7 meters in an aquarium dive.

Would definitely recommend, pick up a class 10, 32gb MICRO SD CARD and you won't go wrong.

Very easy to use, easy to tranfer on your pc.
I had some difficulties using/installing the software for chosing parameters. But after a few trials, it works fine.
I like it

I have installed this on my motorbike helmet, but also use it as a general camera. Overall works great visually, although the sound is not great. Very easy and simple to use and battery life is good

I use it mainly on my bike using the (supplied) handlebar mount. Video is good, but can be very blurry from the vibrations. (This would probably be the case with any similar cam mounted the same way).

Like a few of the other reviewers, I'm not that impressed by the rather muffled sound quality, but on reflection this will be due to the waterproofing. (See final point). Another irritation is the fact that you can't play back the movies using Windows Media Player. Well, you can but there is no sound.

Now on to the positives. It's a compact, robust and inexpensive action camera. In good light it takes decent stills and very reasonable quality video. You wouldn't want to film the school play on this device but that's not what it's for. I recommend this cam for when you want to capture footage where it might get a bit wet and messy. It's great that the cam is waterproof. Unlike some other, very much more expensive, action cams this one can be submerged without any extra case. (Just make sure the end cap is properly attached). I tried it out in a pool at the weekend and it worked really well. The big switches made it really easy to take stills and video clips. The footage underwater is reallly good and I can't wait to use it again.
