Guardian Body Cam.
I have to start by saying that I have a MUVI HD cam which is said to be comparable to the GoPro and is an excellent camera, but unfortunately there were features which it lacked that the Guardian has. The MUVI HD doesn't have an earphone port, infrared night vision, LED light, not weatherproof and a pretty rubbish battery life to name a few. The Guardian has all these features and more.
It's so useful to be able to plug in your earphones whilst watching payback to hear the sound, which is really clear btw compared to a lot of cameras out there including the GoPro. There's rewind/forward at x2-x64 speeds and the menu function is so easy to navigate around.
The instruction manual is pretty straight forward but tbh the cameras features and menu system are pretty obvious once you play around with it.
I've used it at night and the infrared and night vision is AWESOME, well worth the money on its own just for this feature. Not to mention the RED LASER which you activate and point at things so you know exactly what the camera is pointing at if you've got the screensaver on.
It's got Loop record with an option by pressing the "Star" to save certain VIP segments, separate video/photo/sound recording files, which are easy to view.
Covering some other comments and feedback I've read, the front warning stickers come off if you want and there's an extra one in the pack if you want it on again, it has loop record, you can't delete files from the camera which is standard on cams that you can use for evidence so there's no tampering with it, it comes with LOADS of attachments which include a SWIVEL CLIP, which is awesome, there's an optional ClickFast attachment which the G1 guys will send you if you ask, time & date is changeable via menu and there is EXCELLENT email support if you have any queries or questions about the product.
I've worn this at night, used as a Car Dash Cam with the included Sucker window stand which was awesome and also worn the chest harness to do some gardening. Picture and sound is clear and that's just on a standard setting. Battery life seems really good, comes with charging dock which takes 4hrs to charge for upto 10hrs record and play. It's weatherproof and feels really chunky and well made.
I really like it. There are cheaper ones out there but not with the same functions and accessories that the Guardian G1 comes with. It far surpasses the MUVI HD cam that's why in selling it ;-)
It's a great camera, and the quality will certainly impress you.
