Summary: It was a choice between the gopro and the sony. I liked the idea of wifi so I could use my ipod as a monitor to see what I was recording. Also, the Sony downloads easily into my Mac's imovie for editing. The rounded bottom is the only thing that I didn't like, but got a cell phone holder for selfies for less than $2.00 that let's it stay upright and it had a tripod socket on it too.
Summary: Great cam for making time lapse with a warning: Do not attempt to upgrade the firmware from 1.xx directly to 3.0. Its best to do 2.0 first as mine failed and now I am sending it to Sony for a $25 repair. Maybe they will comp me but I doubt it as its a used EB purchase. Would prefer that it constructed a video file of all the images but instead saves all intervals as jpegs. Makes for a bit of extra work in Final Cut.

Summary: Initially happy with purchase, after six months of use the power connection broke, you'd think under warranty, no problem right? WRONG after sending in for repairs and at first them saying they never received it they finally said they have it but that it was misused do void the warranty, how can you misuse a plug? You plug it in, let charge, unplug, oops, connection pulled out with cord. SONY DOESN'T STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT, DON'T BUY GET A GO PRO!
Summary: I bought this at the last min. for trip to Bonair. (Price was the main reason on why I bought it) Its not a Go Pro but it does the job and the video quality of the video was really good. Again bought this at the last minute and I really didnt mess with the setting or anything so for me to just use this item out the box not bad. Now for the bad.
Summary: I love this camera. The long shape makes it hard to use at times, but I like it so much more then the Gopro. It was heck trying to get it to sync with the remote, but once done great. I love that you can watch the video with the remote. Kids think it is cool and fun too. Controls are a bit hard to figure out, but compared to gopro a lot easier to know when it is running and what mode it is on.
Summary: The product is great and is in good condition. You'll get great images from your video ends. I used to run four track, on the beach and worked very well for me, is the same as the last Go-pro but still reasonable price.
Summary: After being hit on my motorcycle and doing that "He said--She said" dance I decided I needed a camera that would give me a record of everything that happens on my rides. Following extensive research on action cams I narrowed my choice down to two manufacturers, then opted for the Sony (over the GoPro with similar specs) because of "Steady Shot" image stabilization. The picture quality is excellent and it is so easy to use, just press the button.
Summary: i bought this to record my daughters softball games. Its compact, wide angle, easy to use. It is great for what I need. The only thing I wish is that it had a longer recording time.Other than that, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
