Useless mounting systems. Buy a Go-Pro
on 4 September 2013
The video quality is very impressive and the camera copes with changes from light to dark and back with very little delay. The screen is spot on for lining shots up and reviewing footage but the laser is OTT. It takes good still shots and the sound is better than I expected. It's not the most intuitive operating system I've ever come across but It's not intolerable.
Unfortunately the mounting systems are absolutely useless, as you will read in every other review on this, or any other site. It's such a shame a potentially good piece of kit is let down at the last minute by such an important aspect of an action camera. Every one of my mounts has broken or just didn't fit/ hold in the first place. Also It seems that replacement parts are not readily available, although this would be a false economy.
Also, as a warning to all action camera buyers-Buy the best memory card you card you can afford. I strapped this to my bike and risked my neck around the Nurburgring (Infamous race track)3 times and it didn't record 1 F'ing lap. I've since found out that if the file exceeds the memory size then NOTHING will be recorded/saved. This applies to all action cameras, not just this one. Make sure you get a memory card with the largest memory but also the highest class (10) as this will make any footage you record much smoother.
In conclusion follow the crowd. I've seen lots of footage from mates Go-Pros. Top quality stills and Videos and a never ending array of OE and after market mounting systems and accessories. Well worth the extra pennies.
