2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 20 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oregon Scientific ACTMini Action Video Camera (ATCMini-S) (Electronics)
Having read a great 'professional' review of the ATCMini in a motorcycle magazine I decided to purchase one on 17/09/2012. To say I was sorely disappointed is an understatement. The first issue is that the memory card (which you have to buy separately)is a nightmare to format with the camera. I thought it would be pretty simple as the instructions look to be straightforward enough ---- create a .txt file for the memory card, load it into the camera, and bingo, the day/month/year and time will be recorded. NO!! No matter what I did the date was always the 01/01/2007!!! Despite numerous attempts by myself and a very computer literate friend we could not get around this problem. (Incidentally, my friend also found through the wonders of the internet someone else who had experienced exactly the same frustrating problem). The other issue, (and more concerning problem), was that the record button was very difficult to initially switch on. I think this was more a problem on my individual camera rather than an overall production issue with the cameras generally, however, it left me feeling uneasy about keeping the ATCMini. In trying to activate the record operation, the button was extremely 'sticky' on each initial attempt and it was very frustrating trying to simply switch the camera into record mode, but it was totally fine on subsequent & repeated on/off switchings. Leave the camera down, have a cup of coffee, go back and try to record and the button was in an obstinate mood again, refusing to activate record mode until, hey presto, once I had succeeded in eventually getting it switched on, I could switch it off and on without any bother. I returned the camera for a full refund because I did not consider that it was fit for purpose and not of merchantable quality. To their absolute credit (and my relief) the seller,through Amazon, was extremely helpful and addressed my problems very speedily and without equivocation. Unfortunately Oregon Scientific have not been so professional in their customer service outlook, and I am still awaiting a reply from them following my remarks to them on their Facebook page and also in an email to their customer service department. Technically it MAY BE a good/great bit of kit, however, if I couldn't rely on being able to switch it on as and when required, and with receiving NO RESPONSE from OS customer services, my confidence was severley dented in what MIGHT be an otherwise serviceable product. Good Luck!
