OK for the price

  • Summary: Just for fun.... For the price OK, but the images aren't so good. 640X480 is a very poor definition. I sold mine and bought a contour. I know the Contour is more (really more) expensive but worse. Believe me!

  • Summary: I bought this item because I wanted an action cam to film some dog-sledding. However, I ended up using more for my snowboarding. I like the durablility of it & the ease of use. The only drawbacks were that buttons were difficult to depress. I often had to remove my gloves just to start filming & stop filming and even then it was difficult. Also, the sound quality was lacking. It picked up mostly ambient sound but not my voice. However, I am still learning how to use it.

Helmet Cam

  • Summary: Not a bad cam. Certainly a step up from my DigitalBlue Tony Hawk Action Cam. This shoots 640x480 @ 30fps (pretty stable). Image is kinda dark, can tear/smear during movement. Sound recording can be turned off but this will NOT boost the bitrate for the video (as I had hoped). Seems very solidly built and strong, no real complaints other than "could be better".

I liked it, but could be a little better

A. L. O. Alcantara "Andre", Amazon

  • Summary: It works like review's product, but has 2 problems in my opinion (test only in Mountain Bike sections): 1- Sound must be turned off, because the wind noise during the ride; 2- To use attached over helmet, this one must be very tightened in your head otherwise the helmet will shake a lot (and the video too); But it was a good purchase.

Good Video, but Audio Sucks and WARRANTY IS USELESS

Stefano Braca "CrazySte", Amazon

  • Summary: HI EVERYBODY, back in January of 2009 i bought 2 Oregon Scientific ATC3k which i installed with Brackets on my Superbike to Record VideoS while i GO on the RaceTrack. The Video Quality is pretty good, i was very pleased with it the Refresh Rate keeps up really good with the High Speeds without Freezing the Video, the Audio instead is very very disappointing, you can only hear a squeeky noise like a broken radio that makes Statics Sounds, basically it's better to turn off...

Good for the money?

M. Rock, Amazon

  • Summary: I have only used this a few times so far, but I will give my first impressions since no one else has. The gist is - the quality of the video is not great - but to get better in an action cam you would have to spend three times as much. I took it mountain biking and captured a few videos. It was mostly easy to set up out of the box - except the direction omit some steps in how to attach the mount to the camera. But for the most part it was easy to prepare.

  • Pros: Весьма неплохо снимает под водой. Даже лучше чем на воздухе. Действительно не боится ударов, падений, пыли и влаги. Хорошее крепление на руль велосипеда: можно повесить по-всякому. Есть возможность подключить к телевизору через "тюльпаны". Телевизор "видит" камеру как видеомагнитофон. Удобно. По телевизору обычному смотреть видео отснятое этой камерой очень приятно, чего не скажешь о просмотре этого же видео на компьютере. Можно использовать как Web-камеру.
  • Cons: Фиговое крепление на шлем: вообще никак это невозможно сделать - при возможной тряске камера сорвется. Да и просто она болтается на голове, отчего на видео создаются помехи. Снимает, конечно, не в HD и тем более не в fullHD. Так, в VGA. Нет дисплея. Еще один недостаток: в темноте не видит абсолютно ничего! Темнота - это даже большой город ночью с городским освещением. Вообще никак. Самый большой недостаток: огромнейшая цена! Я покупал за 9 тысяч. Цена ей на самом деле...
