4.0 out of 5 stars very nice camera, 20 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Polaroid XS100 Extreme Edition HD 1080p 16MP Waterproof Sports Action Camera + Mounting Kit Included (Electronics)
the important for me is to taking photos and video with just one button, no need to go to the settings to change mode, 1080p is perfect, easy to use, very good photos.
That i don't like is the battery. It is very good battery (2-2,5 hours), better than others cameras but the problem is that, it's inside the camera and you cant change it, so if you run out of battery your trip ends. You can't have extra battery to change it and there is not other way (battery pack) but to put the camera for charging

Presuming this charges via USB cable, would it not be possible to buy an 'external battery pack' (the type people use for mobile phones) so you can charge it up on the go?
That's what I do with my GoPro Hero 3, and it works a treat.

I recently bought this for windsurfing and it is fantastic with excellent video quality and is able to withstand some severe crashes. I found it best to disable the auto rotate and mount the camera in the right position for the shot you want. Water clears from the lens amazingly well and the battery seems to last for ever. The free mounting kit included with the package works great for mast/boom/headcam use.

Setting up the camera was a doddle and file transfers are easy with the supplied SD card adapter.

The only draw back I have found so far is that it auto shuts down after 35' 40'' (3.844 Gb) so I am hoping someone from Polaroid can tell me how to disable this or it may just be there is a maximum file size. It's not a big problem once you know as you just switch it off and start again at 35 minutes.

I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants to record a good day of blasting in the wind and now my wife can see and understand why I spend so much of my time doing it. This could save your marriage!

A lot cheaper and less bulky than a GoPro and no need for the waterproof case which is a real bonus.
