The camera works well on roads lit only by my headlamps and this is important as most car accidents occur at night or in poor weather and low visibility. I want visible and audible proof that the accident I'm involved in wasn't my fault.
OK, there are one or two problems. The barrel distortion is there to keep the images sharp at a realistic price-point, but it will upset purists. A firmware upgrade might enable you to have the date displayed as dd/mm/yy rather than always yy/mm/dd but it's a minor point. I like my viewfinder to stay on all the time, yet the camera always reverts to the LCD screen saver mode after switch off - a bit of a pain. The vignetting inside the UWH is just a silly design flaw, but some Mercalli smoothing removes it at a stroke. Later editions of the SJ1000 come with a longer focal length lens, removing this vignetting.
As delivered the camera rather over-sharpens the image, but that's menu tweakable as are a lot of other things. The colour fidelity, exposure tolerance and image sharpness from that tiny lens (working wide open all the time don't forget) is remarkable, and using the supplied HDMI cable the image fills a 55'' LCD telly with ease, and no apologies are needed.
The button that allow you to operate the cam through the case broke almost immediately and require a DIY fix.
Good picture quality, not able to test at speed, but looks promising. Be prepared to customise
UPDATE.........NOV 2015 ---PLEASE IGNORE MY REVIEW AS IT IS NOT RELEVANT TO THE CAMERA LISTED ABOVE!!!! THE PICTURE AND SPEC LISTED ABOVE ARE FOR A DIFFERENT CAMERA TO THE ONE I PURCHASED! (SO ARE MANY OF THE REVIEWS HERE.) WHAT ARE YOU DOING AMAZON? ALLOWING A LISTING TO BE BE USED , SHOWING REVIEWS FOR A DIFFERENT ITEM! ? READERS PLEASE IGNORE ALL REVIEWS EXCEPT THOSE LISTING THE ACTUAL ITEM LISTED AT THE TOP OF THE REVIEWS.
I was able to remove the card on the surface and carefully dry it and was able to get the 2 or so minutes of video that I had shot and it was awsesome quality (that is why there are 2 stars not 1) but I was unable to take more videos during my holiday - including a once in a life time experiences in an underwater cavern (a cenote) so I was most annoyed.
So, if you are intending to use it as a sports camera or a dash cam (loads of fixings come with it) it is likely to work well - but be hesitant about taking it diving. Amazon arranged for the money to be credited to my account almost immediately when I complained and I now have to post the item back (they provided a pre-paid label) tomorrow when I can get to the PO.
The video recordings are truly excellent: pin sharp, crystal clear, great colour. It even performs well in low light, eg when cycling under street lights in the dark.
It's small, solid, very easy to use and it is useful to have the LCD playback screen, which you can also use to change settings etc.
There are a couple of irritations. The mounts/attachments are poor and it is quite heavy compared to bullet cameras. This camera is not primarily designed for cycling. The handlebar mount makes the camera shake a lot (though I have narrow tyres at high pressure), which gives very jerky film. You have to use some ingenuity, creative thinking and several cable ties to get a decent mounting on the front of a cycle helmet. It does feel a bit heavy on the helment - especially with the waterproof case on. In the specifications, it is heavier than most bullet cameras.
It's a shame the camera isn't waterproof in itself (several bullet cameras are). It comes with a waterproof case, which I always use... a) to protect from showers obviously and b) because I don't trust the the camera not fall out of it's mount when attached without the waterproof case. It looks quite flimsy, the attachment.
All that aside, this is an absolue bargain. You can work round the mount/attachment problems and the quality of the recordings is, as mentioned before, astonishing.
There's a good online review with video examples at techmoan.com. It's what persuaded me to get this rather than a similarly priced bullet camera: simply because of the quality of the film.
