5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, even greater price, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electronics-Depot® HD1080P Sport Action Helmet Camera DVR Outdoor Mini DV Waterproof Drive Record Camcorder DV with H.264 Wide angle black,red,white,yellow color available(randomly color) (Electronics)
I have to say that I was a little sceptical about ordering this product but being on Amazon I trusted them and I decided to give it a go. Wow, definitely not disappointed. The item turned up within 4 days of ordering it, neatly packaged in a box that looks and feels good quality. Opening it up there is a mass of different mountings for bike, helmets, car windows, arm bands and so on, but there is a fairly comprehensive instruction sheet on which mount is for what type of fixing, so pretty good there.
The Camera itself it pretty compact and feels like it is built well, and fits well in to the inclusive water proof case, and looks the part too. I immediately charged the battery up ready for a good "fiddle".
Once charged up I found it really very easy to navigate through set-up and options for the Cam, which is good as the instructions aren't overly comprehensive. Picture quality is really, really good, only tried 1080P so far, but with the 32GB SD card I bought separately it tells me I'll get three hours of HD recording, more than enough for any adventure I would have thought :-)
I have yet to play around with the exposure settings as low light recordings were OK but had a pink hue to them, to be honest though this will be used in the open in daylight, for which the recorded picture is superb. If you have an up to date TV that accepts SD cards you can plug it straight in and view what you have recorded as soon as you hit the stop record button, pretty neat if you are impatient to see the results, picture quality was great too, steady image and not at all jerky.
A couple of things that could make this product even better are.
> A carry strap loop on the Camera when it's "naked" and not in its waterproof case
> A carry strap loop on the Waterproof Case, could also be used to attach a safety lanyard in case any mounting fails, especially if you are using this surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking etc.
When all said, great little product, loads of accessories, good price and whilst it's not a Go-Pro it is a real alternative if you are on a tight budget.
Time will tell how robust this little Cam is, but so far all indications are very good :-)
