Summary: I have to say, I had high hopes for this product. I have very simple recording needs. I just want to record my motorcycle and mountain biking rides plain and simple. I want one button to turn it on/off and one button to record on/off. I also wanted something with a form that was streamlined and allowed it to be mounted on a helmet without it looking so weird (aka GoPro).
Summary: Very unhappy with the video quality of this unit. It has tremendous compression artifacts, motion blur and other issues that I just never had with the GoPro. I was trying to come up with something smaller for hat mounting, but this one just doesn't cut it.
Summary: Beware if this camera is anything like the full sized XD 1080 and you plan to it in cold weather, e.g. for skiing. I use an XD 1080 on a motorcycle helmet in warm weather, with an external power supply from a battery in my pocket, and it works fine. However, in the winter, with the camera attached to my ski helmet and the same external power supply, the camera will refuse to accept external power below about 20F (the green charge LED on the camera goes out despite the...
Summary: Great picture quality and reliable low profile mount for motorcycle helmet. The mini USB port was recently damaged due to cable snag, and tech support was very helpful with new camera replacement at $100.

I was super stoked that the camera arrived 3 days earlier than it had said it would allowing me the video my last day of hunting.
Summary: The video under certain lighting conditions looks great but as soon as that brightly lit situation changes it bounces around in white balancing going from normal to a cool tone. ( blue hue ) The audio is absolutely horrible. You have to be right next to it rt in front of the sound source for it to record. If you get more than 3ft away it won't pick up any sound. The form factor makes for a good mount on guns or side mounting on top.
