Great Little Camera with massive accessory bundle!!, 4 Dec 2012
I bought this on a whim as the price was too tempting. I used it on a dive trip to Egypt and was sceptical at first about the quality and robustness of the dive case but I had no reason to fear! The video quality underwater was impressive and when used in conjunction with a torch would have been even better as colours underwater seem to be very blue when filmed without light. I upgraded to a 8GB card which is the largest that the camera supports and recorded approx 5-6 hours of footage using 7GB of memory. I had an Ipad with camera docking accessory and just connected the camera via the provided USB lead and imported the video directly. Also provided in the box are several elastic straps that the camera can clip onto and be worn as helmet cam or attached to handlebars with the provided attachments. I don't think that there is anything that you couldn't somehow manage to attach this camera to with the kit in the box! There is a silicon skin for the camera and a carry pouch. As mentioned in the other review, there is a 2GB card included but I would upgrade to the 8GB if you don't want to have to delete films every time you want to use the camera. Interestingly the camera saves the film in 30 minute segments and warns that if you do not press the button to cease filming before switching it off then it would not save. It does however keep the recorded video should the battery go dead which occurs after approx 2 hours of constant use. There is also a volume activation switch which turns the camera on if noise is detected, something that may be of use to some people. The size is very small so would be easy to conceal should you wish!! The dive case states that it is waterproof to 25m, during one of my dives I spotted a turtle and went slightly deeper well a lot deeper, 39 metres and the footage was the same quality with no sign of water penetration. So for the price, you can't go wrong with this little camera and I am sure you won't be dissapointed!
