3.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera with few weak points, 25 Jun 2009
By 
I bought this camera for using it on a motorcycle, The rubber band could be a tiny bit longer for the crash helmet. It worked at the end, but was really tough.
The movie quality is not bad, a bit corny and sometimes weird colours. But in general good enough for this price. It even kept recording in tunnels and you can actually see something there as well. This was good.
I am using this camera with a 16GB card, this was more than enough for a week holiday in Norway with lots of recording. The batteries, well. Could be better. I would guess after 30 to 40 minutes or so even the best batteries are done.
My main issue was actually, how do I know that I am recording? No chance to see the blinking camera symbol whilst riding the bike. Not even in the mirrors. And the little infraredonly blinks in stand by, once starting recording it is off. But it is also off when the camera switched off because of low battery. Guess I missed some nice scenery because of that.
I would recommend to buy this camera because it can handle up to 32GB cards and that I did not find anywhere else. The picture quality is good enough, sound quality at least for me not so important. The handling issue and the battery life, after a while you get used to it and I always put some fresh batteries before I arrive at a nice spot.

Does anyone know if this will fit onto a standard cycling helmet?

No, it would slip off, I'm sure with a little modification a handy person could overcome this

Do you think it would fit onto a helmet if one went paragliding? Also would the quality be good enough? Or is this too dangerous..

What ?? You're asking if paragliding is dangerous ?? Read the annual accident reports, Mafren. Mainly spinal injuries. Wheelchair may be involved too
