Summary: So I've had the Ego for a couple months now. I could never get it to update the firmware when I got it. first irritation. But it's dealable. The recording is great when it actually records. I never do the still shot's so I don't have anything to say about that. The built in WiFi is amazing and works great with the standard 1 - 2 second lag. Sound is amazing. The build quality is great I love the standard 1/4" thread I've made several mounts for my bike.
Liquid Image Ego 727Y mountable Sport Video Camera with WIFI.
11 March 2013
Summary: The camera hangs several times during use. I had to reinstall the firmware several times to make it more stable. Overall picture quality is good. The firmware and the software has to be improved .
Summary: This is my first POV camera. I chose it for its water resistance and WiFi control via a phone, so that I could use it mounted on the front of my kayak, out of my reach and in danger of getting wet. The picture quality seems excellent, both video and still. The microphone does not seem much good: mine creates a background hiss in a quiet indoor environment and barely picks up my voice from 3 or 4 feet away.
Summary: I just purchased this camera a few days ago. It has many features I like, such as changing settings via WIFI on your phone, and the various resolutions. My biggest complaint is I bought this camera because of its battery life. The battery is supposed to last a couple of hours and from my first tests, this appears to be true. However, it can only record in 30 minute segments before it stops on its own, and then you have to manually restart it.
Summary: Fairly easy to operate but you will need your specs on to see anything on the screen. The wifi connection worked ok to my iPad and downloaded the video but I was disappointed with the quality of the picture.
Summary: I dont normally do reviews but as i find them helpful, here is mine. As a keen skier i brought this as its so much smaller than the gopro, however the battery just cant cope with the cold. The display and the controls are so small that you can be forever fiddling with it on the slopes (not a problem with summer sports), you just want to leave it on and let it do its thing ( which it does well) however because the battery shuts down in cold conditions you have the choice...
Summary: The video recording quality is excellent but And this is a major drawback, really depends on the camera positioning - position the camera too high (pointing to the sky) and the auto-exposure can darken the video....SO viewing the image using the WiFi really matters AND THE ANDROID APP DOESN'T WORK. This statement is based on attempting to download/run the Android App on three differing phones (one Motorola and 2 Samsung and two differing tablets (Samsung/Acer).
Non si collega al Galaxy S4 firmware 4.3 per il resto è perfetta
4 February 2014
Summary: La Cam non mi si collega al mio Galaxy s4 firmware 4.3 mentre funziona benissimo con ipad e pure con Galaxy s2 firmware 4.0 Ho provato a guardare su internet ma sembro l'unico al mondo ad avere notato questo problema. Ho provato con altri Galaxy s4 stesso firmware ed il problema è stato confermato. Chiedo anche a voi se vi capita la stessa cosa e se/come avete risolto.
Summary: Mi aspettavo una qualità maggiore dei filmati eseguiti in interni,con illuminazione artificiale..Ma forse questa telecamera non è fatta per questo uso.La cosa che mi ha lasciato perplesso è che alcuni filmati,fatti con la stesso modello,trovati in rete ed eseguiti con scarsa illuminazione sono più definiti.Per quanto riguarda il firmware della telecamera,all'apertura dell'applicazione su smartphone compare il messaggio che bisogna aggiornarlo.
