3.0 out of 5 stars About right for price., 3 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gear-Pro High-Definition Sport Action Camera, 720p Wide-Angle Camcorder With 2.0 Touch Screen - SD Card Slot, USB Plug And Mic - All Mounting Gear Included - For Biking, Riding, Racing, Skiing And Water Sports, Etc. (Electronics)
EDIT: EDIT: EDIT:
After 4 months use the battery life has gone from 1hr 50min to approx 10 minutes and can't be changed and my laptop doesn't recognise it anymore for some reason. I've sent it back for a refund & will not be buying another. I've also seen it is now for sale at £65, mine was £40 4 months ago! Apologies to anyone who has bought one off my recommendation but after 4 moths use it is useless and now give it a 1 star rating.
---------------------------------------
Nothing special, cheap camera made to look like a GoPro, if you want the quality and durability of a GoPro then this isn't for you. If you want to record rideouts on push bikes with your mates to bung on youtube then this is ok. If you want to record in your car in case of an accident then this is a good camera as the suction mount is very strong. I personally bought this for my 75 mile round trip commute on my motorbike after nearly getting hit the other week, nice to have a bit of evidence. The suction mount as I said is great and sticks to the helmet with confidence. The auto iris handles bright days and dull days and changes fast if you go under a bridge/tunnel. Video quality is not bad, you can read reg plates easy enough. Comes with cables for PC, in car charger, suction mount, handle bar mount and a strap. Does not state anywhere in description what SD card you can use. It's a microSD and I use 32 GB (about 7 hours record time)

Negative things to mention.

Battery life is poor, I'm getting about 1 hour 50 mins on a full battery.

Not true HD, the chip maybe but the lens isn't, I'm a cameraman for the TV industry, I wouldn't use this in broadcasting.

The waterproof case steams up after a few miles when going from my garage to outside and on to the motorway as the camera goes from room temp to outside, sorted with a anti fog spray though.

Handle bar mount snapped on first use when tightening, cheap replacement at £4 ordered.

WOULD I BUY AGAIN HAVING TESTED.....FOR £39.99 I WOULD.
