ATC 3K is the worst!

GHD, Amazon
20 February 2010
  • Summary: I read the reviews. I read the available information and I thought for the price it seems reasonable. Let me list the things you cannot find out online even from Oregon Scientific. NO view screen so you cannot see what you are aiming at or if it is even in the picture. No adjustment for screen size. NO image stabilization so it shakes so badly not one of the videos I tried can be watched without agony. There is no light adjustment if it is too light you get washed out.

Piece of Junk

D. gravlee, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: I purchased one of these to take with me on a motorcycle trip thru Peru. The camera stopped working half way thru the trip. the problem is that the memory card reader does not make good contact with the memory card. any little vibration will make the unit turn off. DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE. GO AHEAD AND SPEND THE EXTRA CHEESE ON A HERO CAM.

"Low quality video, terrible sound, no date time stamp."

fisher_king, CNET
30 September 2009
  • Pros: None, not as advertised.
  • Cons: overpriced, video and sound quality are unusable. Even though all reviewers claim it has date and time stamp, it does not. You can set the date and time but not use it in playback.

Buy a cheap camera - you get what you pay for!

F. Quinones, Amazon
12 December 2008
  • Summary: I recently purchased the ATC 3K so that my buddies and I could capture footage from our riding excursions. I, myself, am into all sorts of riding - from dirt to street - and decided not to go with any other competitor camera, mainly due to price, package and peoples' reviews. At this point, I regret my decision! My advice is to dish out a few more bills and get a hands-free camera that will give you quality video. The ATC 3K video was grainy and the sound was horrible.

Not Worth the $$$ Poor Quality No Tech Support

Wrascal Thomas "Wrascal", Amazon
10 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this believing that it would provide at least a passable quality. However, picture is too slow to self-adjust from lighted area to shade. Driving down a road on a sunny day, I would see clear picture until I pass under a shaded area, where the picture would immediately become too dark to view. I contacted Oregon Scientific for support, explained the issue, and, after 5 days, they responded by asking me where I bought the item.

Poor, no customer support

M. E. W "mew", Amazon
5 April 2011
  • Summary: Would not recommend this - used mine on a motorbike, video quality is quite poor with excessive wavering effect. After first use mine then started to turn itself off after 15-20 minutes even after batteries were changed and card changed. Have emailed Oregon Scientific several times and had absolutely NO response from them whatsoever and I will certainly not be ringing their support line at a cost of 10p per minute!

Awful

Nuno Bento, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: Bought one to use for skiing and am just thankful it was cheap. The video quality is awful unless the light is very good. In overcast weather, the picture is very dark. Sound quality is also appalling. Waste of money unless you are desperate for a cheap helmet camera.

disappointed from Kent

J. C. Burcher "JCB", Amazon
6 April 2010
  • Summary: I am very disappointed with this gadget. It has failed to turn on after just few minutes of use. To their credit, the manufacturer Oregon, were very helpful on the telephone with words of advice, but it has been returned to the Retailer for replacement.
