Summary: The camera takes fine video, better than what I expected. It is very clear. However, the battery compartment is moderately difficult to difficult in opening and closing. While audio can be picked up by the unit you have to be at a stand still.
Summary: This is a great camera, I use it for making mountain bike and ski movies and film from a variety of angles including on my helmets and various places on my bike such as handle bars, all of the mounts for this come in the box along with a remote that's very handy although sometimes it's very slow at...
Love the wide angle. Wish it had external mic input.

Summary: I bought this for motorcycles. Absolutely loves the wide angle lens. RF remote too. I wasn't expecting any miracle for the sound however. Wind noise ruins everything. Wish it had external mic input jack. Video formats appear to be rather uncommon.
Summary: My husband was thrilled with this camera, he has attached it to the snowmobile, & loves the fact that he can review his footage after he is finished riding to see what he recorded. He loves the fact that he can turn it on and off with the wristband remote.
Summary: The image isn't amazing, the mic is next to useless and the batteries are a sod to get in. BUT IT'S AWESOME! It's lightweight, the batteries last and the casing is sturdy, light and durable. Even with the minor drawbacks this does what I want, it films my rockclimbing!
Brought as insurance in case I get knocked off the bike again.

Summary: Pictures are fine - sharp if a little dark (might be the poor weather recently). Records in approx 23 minute bursts. Heavy on the batteries. Didn't come with instructions but those were on the Drift website. Overall happy (especially at the price)but I think I'll need more time playing with it
Fantastic value - Great quality at smaller viewing sizes
