I bought my action cam February 2013. It was good. I used it when cycling to and fro work. The picture quality was good. The problem I have with it now is that it seems to have broken. When I switch it on now it just keeps making the switch on noise repeatedly and freezes. It's frozen a few times now, and nothing I do will switch it off. It will stay switched on until the battery runs out. By then it's overheated as well. I tried resetting it and wiping the card etc, but nothing seems to be working. I've not dropped it or anything, it's just decided to stop working. Since it's out of warranty I guess i'll have to buy a new camera now. I did not expect it would last less than 2 years only since it wasn't cheap. I'm very disappointed.
I spent months trawling the Internet looking for a good quality action camera to fit to my motorcycle helmet. Before I bought this one I went though 2 other cheap (£30) action cams. Which either fell apart or didn't work. Save your money and buy one of these. A TRULY FANTASTIC PIECE OF KIT. You will not find a better and clearer mini action cam for this price. This camera gives me excellent, crystal clear footage every time. No shaking, no vibrations or interference like some of the cheaper cameras. The battery will last at least 3 hours with constant HD video recording. I now have this permanently fixed to my motorcycle helmet so it sees what I see and I now never start the engine without my cam. It will record such clear images I can see number plates from 30-40 metres away. So for all those near-misses or maybe even the day you crash this is the perfect camera. Totally waterproof and with 8 super bright white LED lights it can be used in situations with absolute no light. The sound quality for what I use it for is not great but I don't care about sound, for me it's all about catching the picture moment someone wipes me out...... I had to design my own way of securely fixing this to my expensive helmet without drilling ANY holes in the helmet but using some 3M VHB tape it is stuck solid and doesn't move. I'm now thinking about buying a second one to attach to the car dash for the same insurance busting reasons. I will soon add my recorded motorcycle videos to YouTube so you can all see my rides and see the fantastic quality this amazing kit gives.
The item arrived very fast. Poor instructions, nothing related whit the mounting items from the package. Mini CD with driver but couldn't to install. The driver seems to be for 32 bit system, mine is 64 bits. Lost more then 2 hours trying uninstall, reinstall, pointless. The miniSD very hard to be removed from the socket but in my situation to must be removed to transfer the clips. Contacted the producer sent a complaint, no reply till yet
Does what it says on the tin. No used in the field yet but, Put 32gig class 6 sd card in my unit and left recording, It lasted 3hrs 20min before battery ran out. Picture is of good quality and sound is good, if the rear waterproof cap is left off. There is no strapping that can be fixed to a helmet,I arranged my own using old strapping from an old head torch. The strapping and bracket supplied is for handle bars. If the manufacturers supplied strapping for a helmet, then I would give this 100/100.Great also wildlife as this can take still pictures as well as videos ,both can be set to use the motion detect facility, which will take a 10 seconds, 1min, 10min, and more, length videos, before resetting to wait for the next motion detection. Even though it has no helmet strapping I have given full marks, this is because of the motion detect facility, something I did not know was with this camera but will find very useful. UPDATE Used in the field twice about 20 videos none of which could I play back when home, I assumed it was the sd card so I purchased a sandisc sd card better quality class 10 but the same, some files I could play, while most the PC did not recognise the files.I am in conversation with the supplier now and will update when |I have news.
