4.0 out of 5 stars very nice camera 20 Jan 2013
Size Name:HD 1080p Sports Action Camcorder|Verified Purchase
the important for me is to taking photos and video with just one button, no need to go to the settings to change mode, 1080p is perfect, easy to use, very good photos.
That i don't like is the battery. It is very good battery (2-2,5 hours), better than others cameras but the problem is that, it's inside the camera and you cant change it, so if you run out of battery your trip ends. You can't have extra battery to change it and there is not other way (battery pack) but to put the camera for charging

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Little Camera 18 Jan 2013
Size Name:HD 1080p Sports Action Camcorder|Verified Purchase
I had been looking for a good value 1080p action camera for a long time, and then I cam across this one.

First off, the camera was very nicely and neatly packaged, had everything that was advertised and no issues with packaging.

The manual for the camera was easy to read and had all the required information in multiple languages, There were no issues with the documentation, so I am not sure what the other 1 star review was on about.

I had purchased a 32GB Micro SD card for this and it was definitely necessary, the camera records very clear and crisp footage, but takes up a lot of disk space, around 100Mb/1min, so you will need large storage, however, this is normal.

The camera is very light and ergonomic, it has many fittings and mounts so that you can either have the camera on the top/side of your head or on handle bars/ski poles. This proves to be a very handy thing, as with other action cameras, I noticed you had to buy them as extra, some being 30+. So very good extra!.

Overall, the action camera has proven to survive falls on ski ramps and has not been effected at all. Definitely recommend this camera to anyone wanting to record an action sport!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great full HD (1080p) /HD (720p) recording 9 Mar 2013
By M
Size Name:HD 1080p Sports Action Camcorder|Verified Purchase
I bought this being a little bit cautious not knowing what to expect considering everybody else is buying GoPro, Contour or Drift cameras. However after I received the product and played with it for a few days I am convinced I made a great choice.

Make sure you buy a good class 10 Micro SD card and 32GB. 20min of 720p video is about 1GB. Double if you want 60fps or 1080p.

This is less then half the price of the established brands and does the job better in some respects. Video quality brilliant and you have the slide record button you can use with your gloves on and also it vibrates for confirmation when switching on/off, start recording, etc.

Search 'yamaha polaroid xs100' on youtube to see 720p video quality (the video is about 6min long).

Hope this will help someone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good camera 23 April 2014
Size Name:HD 1080p Sports Action Camcorder|Verified Purchase
I bought this as wanted a decent camera to mount in my car - couldn't really justify the cost of a go-pro and after comparing videos on YouTube, the picture quality seemed comparable. I purchased a 32gb micro SD, which simply slots into the camera. The instructions I received were actually quite comprehensive - you will need to read them to understand both the software and TV menu, but I'll give you a summary of how to set-up.

Firstly, you need to format the SD card by connecting the camera via the supplied HDMI cable to your TV. Insert the cable, the SD card and then turn the camera on. This will load the menu, which isn't the most user friendly menu you'll ever see, but if you read the instructions you'll be fine. Using the power button (by clicking once or twice to move and select), move to the format section and the SD card will be formatted. Unplug the HDMI, turn the camera off and then plug the supplied USB cable into your computer and then turn the camera back on. This will access the software menu and files on the SD card. In the software menu, you can choose image quality (Full HD or FHD), as well as the camera settings. It's important to note that to access either the TV or software menu, you need to plug the cable in and then turn the camera on - mine would not detect either if the camera was already on.

The XS100 in video mode records two separate files - one in the higher quality setting and another in low quality setting. Some reviews stated that the audio was only available on the lower quality setting, but this isn't the case. The higher quality video setting has no audio when played through Windows Media Player, but when I changed to Quicktime I had both Full HD image and audio together. The picture quality is very impressive, but the audio is not the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic camera for windsurfing! 17 Mar 2014
Size Name:HD 1080p Sports Action Camcorder|Verified Purchase
I recently bought this for windsurfing and it is fantastic with excellent video quality and is able to withstand some severe crashes. I found it best to disable the auto rotate and mount the camera in the right position for the shot you want. Water clears from the lens amazingly well and the battery seems to last for ever. The free mounting kit included with the package works great for mast/boom/headcam use.

Setting up the camera was a doddle and file transfers are easy with the supplied SD card adapter.

The only draw back I have found so far is that it auto shuts down after 35' 40'' (3.844 Gb) so I am hoping someone from Polaroid can tell me how to disable this or it may just be there is a maximum file size. It's not a big problem once you know as you just switch it off and start again at 35 minutes.

I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants to record a good day of blasting in the wind and now my wife can see and understand why I spend so much of my time doing it. This could save your marriage!

A lot cheaper and less bulky than a GoPro and no need for the waterproof case which is a real bonus.
