Conclusion: I want to expeirment a little with videos, but I don't want to risk my high dollar camera and lose or damage it. This camera is perfect for my needs. I have strapped it on my dog Leroy for real interesting dogs eye view videos. I have attached it to the front bumper of my car for some really cool driving footage... The video is fine for projects you want to post to the web or email to friends. As other reviewer says, you can get 45-55 min. of video on a 1 Gig. SD card.
Pros: Video Quality, Durability, Portability, Features
Summary: I got one of these on clearance for $20. I wouldn't pay much more, you can get the same quality with most real cheap digital cameras. But I am using it as a dog cam, strapping it o the underside of a skateboard, various other ideas and it's pretty cool for that. If you want a real quality helmetcam get one of the ones that plugs into your regular camcorder and spend a couple hundred bucks on the camera alone.
Summary: This camera doesnt work correctly, it films during 30 seconds and then stops, for begin again is necesary to remove the batteries and insert it again and then the camera films 30 seconds more. I consulted with amazon about this problem and the answer was that the camera works with lithiun battery, then I used this kind of batteries in my camera, but its work is the same, worked 30 seconds more. I need to solve this situations, I think that my money is lost.
Summary: This camera is very simple to use and its minimalism is a strength. However the low resolution and frame rate at maximum resolution as well as lack of support for higher capacity SD cards (>1gb) limits it's appeal. Its also useless in low light situations. If it supported 640x480 @ 30fps and supported 2gb SD cards, it would be a five star camera.
Summary: I use it in my motorcycle, and is perfect for this. compact size, I can attach it almost everywhere in my motorcycle body, with a 1 GB SDcadrd there's more than enough time to shoot a trip. And very easy to plug in the tv to review the shoots.
Summary: I got this camera for use on my Yamaha Rhino while off roading. The camera does a good job taking moving video's. It has a fluid motion not a jerky one like I initially thought it would. For the money the camera does a great job.
Summary: I was able to find these locally for 59$. I picked one up to use as a helmet cam for when i go kite buggying (using a parafoil kite to power a 3 wheeled buggy across the land. lots of fun! and a great sport check out windpowersports.com for more info) Anyway, for the price this thing is great. If the resolution was a little better than 640x480 and fps was better than 15 this would be awesome.
