2.0 out of 5 stars AT18A High Definition Waterproof Actioncam HD 720P Sport Helmet Action Video Camera, 13 July 2013
This review is from: AT18A High Definition Waterproof Actioncam HD 720P Sport Helmet Action Video Camera DVR, AVI Video Format, Supports Upto 32GB SDHC Cards Ideal For Holidays, BMX, Skiing, Snowboarding, Rock-Climbing, Paintball, Skydiving, Swimming, ATV, Motocross, Horse riding etc (Electronics)
The video quality is good but..
The camera is mounted to the end of the handlebar of my motorcycle. The sound is dreadful as it is picking up all the road noise as soon as you get over about 5mph (not the camera's fault as it wasn't designed for this). The batteries do not last very long so I cut a hole in the back of the cover (this then makes it not waterproof. Working on a solution for that) a charging USB cable is then used to power the unit. With a 32GB card I can get 3.5hrs of continuous recording in HD mode or 6.5hrs in VGA mode. It is also running in loop recording mode then so when the card gets full it overwrites the beginning. Great as I do longish trips so fewer cards to carry and juggle. However for some unknown reason the camera will stop recording and will create corrupt files. Fortunately the files are only 2 minutes long in this mode so I guess this reduces the amount of recording lost to a corrupt file. I think there is a software problem and the unit needs the cmos flashed and the software installed again. It is disappointing to find on footage review that there are chunks of recording that are corrupt or to find that the unit has shut down half way through the ride. I thought this may be a faulty card but have tried another better quality card with the same results. If it didn't have this problem I would have given it more stars.
I must find the invoice and contact the supplier to see if spare rear covers are available.
