The first and foremost thing you must do is CHARGE THE CAMERA!!! It has an internal battery and will not work without charging it. I spent many hours trying to get it to work, buying umpteen different types of AA batteries. The instructions don't tell you to do this!!! Once the internal battery is charged you can then insert your own AA batteries and away you go! It has a really good picture quality, the sound isn't great but I'm not to bothered about that. I've attached mine to the side of my motorcycle helmet and I'm really pleased with the results. I bought a 16gb memory card and this gives me just under 2 hours of recording time.

Having been looking for a relatively cheap camera to fit on my bike I stumbled across this one. I did my research and watched a great little video (Big Wills Diaries on youtube) and finally decided to risk the negative reviews. Once I got it I did as others have suggested and connected it via USB for a few hours, inserted the batteries and got nothing! Replaced the batteries and I suddenly had a great camera. The sound is even worse than I expected, however when out on the road that makes little difference. The picture quality is reasonable enough for what I need so all in all I'm very happy. As others have said for a tenth of the price of top end spec it is certainly more than a tenth of the product. If you can't afford, or don't want to risk a Gopro hero3+, then give this a go instead.

Rugged product, picture quality is good @ 720P, battery life at least 2 hours using NiMH Energizer rechargeables (they haven't died yet), audio is not great though and it is a bit heavy on a bike helmet.
Delivery was very respectable at 5 days from China.
It's not a GoPro but its only 20% of the price, it does what I want. Recommended!

This is a good little device just let down by BAD feedback on the audio.

I have been offered a discount so I will be opening the device to see if I can find a loose connection or just to isolate the damn microphone.

I offer the following information regarding the Action Cam

When connected to a Suse linux system it is recognised as :-
ID 05e1:0b02 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd

Some translated instructions (the manual is v. poor) please note that not all options have been tested.

1: Format the memory card. How?
1.1. With the camera turned on hold the "shutter" button for around 5 seconds.
Release the "shutter" button when the display shows "FOA". The card will be formatted in a few seconds

2: Set the date and time. Reasonably straight forward.

3: USB operation

3.1. PC mode
Just connect camera to pc with the usb cable.
Pre-existing files can now be viewed, copied or deleted.

3.2 Loop recording mode
Loop recording mode is accessed by holding the menu button down then connecting a live USB power lead.
WAIT until the camera is active BEFORE RELEASING the menu button.

The camera is now in loop recording mode and recordings can be made / deleted as normal. But not from PC - see below.

4: Loop recording notes

When entering loop recording mode with batteries installed in the camera footage is saved every five minutes.
With no batteries installed footage is saved every two minutes.
During loop recording mode the cameras disk space is not available for viewing / deletion from a PC.
Pressing the shutter button stops the recording and saves the footage.

First, the camera generally performs exactly as described. Despite the vendor's disclaimer, is does seem to be pretty waterproof.

A few areas to be aware of:

It has a fairly narrow field of view. It says 57 degrees, but it's difficult to understand that. It seems to be equivalend to a 35mm camera with an 80mm lens, in other words somewhat zoomed in from a standard lens. This makes it very fiddly to get the camera pointing in the right direction.

Second it is very hard on batteries. With two duracell AA batteries in good condition, it stopped recording after about 3 minutes. With two brand-new ProPower batteries it did 15 minutes without a problem.

I t is difficult in bright sunlight to see when it has powered on, and when it started recording. If you hold the recording button down too long it formats the memory card, thus losing everything recorded so far.

I could not get it to connect to my computer over USB, but I do have problems with plug-n-play on that computer anyway, so it may not be a problem with the camera. I simply plug the memory card into the computer and download that way.

Some of the descriptions suggest the maximum memory card size is 8GB - others 32GB. I played safe with 8GB. The batteries will run out long before the card anyway.

Next time i would pay a lot more and get a go-pro. They have a wide field of view and a chest harness, which would produce much better results.

What a waste of money!!! I've used several type of SD card including class 10 (for HD video cameras) and I've used different brands of new batteries (Duracell and Enegiser Lithium). The longest it will record is 1 minuet 30 seconds, then turns it's self off. The sound is none existent and the picture isn't great. Don't be fooled by the cheap price. I will be returning and spending a little extra to get something that works.
