1.0 out of 5 stars Catastrophically bad, 23 Jun. 2016
Sold as an action camera with generous accessories, BUT:

1. It cannot handle vibrations, with resulting footage completely distorted.
2. Action cameras need a wide angle lens, these have an extremely narrow field of view, which means point-of-view footage is impossible.
3. Video footage, even without the vibration problem, is worse than old Super 8 film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, solid, but a design flaw., 19 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fine and is solidly built, but I do wonder why they couldn't design it to have a proper 90 degree angle. Does the job with a Behringer K900FX despite this flaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very solid, smooth finish, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these to help my father move around our house when he's visiting. It is indeed made of wood, and is very nicely finished. Once installed it's rock solid and works really well. It would be nice to have different shades available, as this colour might not blend in everywhere and I'm not sure staining it is an option given the very smooth finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flexible arm is really well made., 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The spring clamp part is quite familiar, but I was especially impressed by the flexible arm, which is really solidly engineered. It holds its position really well (although I am using very light Xiaomi Yi cams) and looks like it will last a long time. There's an included gopro adapter, but any standard tripod camera or mount will work fine.

Both side stage cams in this video were on these mounts, very stable https://youtu.be/2qKquPvWu3I

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for multi-cam shooting (sample live gig clips)., 13 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought two of these to record my band's live gigs and rehearsals, and am very pleased with them especially for the price. I might get another. the inbuilt mike is OK but can't handle high volumes so I record sound separately and synch it with the video on my PC.

Pros:
- Nice simple design, good quality plastic.
- Excellent picture quality in a variety of lighting conditions.
- Useful app to manage settings and frame shots.
- Standard tripod mounting for use with lots of clamps and accessories.
- So cheap you can buy several instead of a camcorder, great for getting multiple angles.
- Nice protective packaging.
- Regular improvements via app and firmware updates.

Cons/Tips:
- Buy a silicon lens cap.
- Sometimes takes a few attempts to link with iPhone via wifi.
- Would be better if USB/HDMI socket cover was attached, easy to lose.
- Battery life is good, but I bought a couple of spare batteries and a charger.
- Frame rate drops in very low light (although I have only used the "Auto Low Light" setting, so need to experiment).

Sample clips:
- Very low light, two Yi cams, separate sound recording: [...]
- Good indoor lighting, one Yi cam, separate sound recording: [...]
- OK indoor light, one Yi cam, sound from Yi cam itself: [...]

UPDATE: No recent problems with phone / camera link, also I switched off Auto Low Light and much prefer the results.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well built, solid, but gets too hot., 9 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a very nice, solidly built lamp, but it gets VERY hot very quickly. I unplug it when not in use (in fact an on/off switch would be nice).

3.0 out of 5 stars Works OK, but a poor design., 23 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to charge the batteries OK, but they then need prising out of the charger with a small screwdriver. The fit is so tight that the tape attached to the battery simply peels off when pulled. I've tried the original camera batteries and the ones that came with this charger with the same result. So it's OK, but quite annoying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't handle the pressure...broken, 11 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's made of plastic, and started bulging almost immediately. It has now split along the edge and is unuseable. I am getting rid of this and intend to pay a bit more for a solid metal shower head.

Bought end of August, used to store an 11 year old's clothes - collapsed end of November. This kind of "straight-to-landfill" rubbish is so bad it's almost criminal.

1.0 out of 5 stars No support for IOS updates - Should not be sold as an Apple interface, 20 Nov. 2014
Country: UK
Product: IU2
SerialNo: 0010176
Message: I bought this device new 2 years ago, and it now no longer works with any up-to-date version of the IOS operating system. Can the firmware be updated, and if not, how can you justify selling products with such a short life? I paid over £140 for this and feel robbed. If there is no solution the IU2 will be the last Tascam product I buy.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Richard,
Thank you for contacting Tascam U.K.
I am most sorry but the IU2 compatibility with IOS7 is not verified and there is no firmware update possible .
Kind Regards
Jo

Dear Jo,
Thank you for your response. As I said, I bought the IU2 brand new in May 2012, and it no longer works as advertised. Do you think this is acceptable from a consumer rights perspective?
Best regards,
Richard
------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Richard,
The IU2 worked perfectly at the time with the intended products. Tascam cannot be helped responsible for the fact that Apple launched a new IOS for their products.
Kind Regards
Jo
