Bloody pain in the ass at set up!

Larry Steppat, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: No real instructions! Must go on line for anything reasonable. Buttons/controls way too small! Plug-in cover flimsy at best and all but breaks when placing in aux. viewer. Really poor engineering as far as handling. I expect Sony quality per taking movies but horribly disappointed per mechanics. Save your money because GoPro beats them to a pulp. Really sorry I purchased this unit as a backup to my GoPro.

don't waste your money

caprockcoke, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: This camera works fine as long as you are in a temperature controlled environment. Every time we have taken it out on the road, it will not work because it apparently is overheated. Yesterday, the high was 80 degrees! When I turned it on this morning (in the house), it once again worked just fine. An action camera that will not work if the temperature is over room temperature is of absolutely no use to us.

Not compatible with other UK video footage

I. Collins, Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: Please be aware that as this shoots at 30p rather than the UK 25 fps it means that footage from these cameras cannot be integrated easily with video footage shot on other cameras in the UK. Material can be converted but becomes very jerky. This camera is really aimed at the US market and is not the same as normal Sony HD cameras. Ok if all you are using is this camera, no good if you are integrating it with video from other cameras when editing.

Think carefully before buying.

Geoff Holt "Author, Walking on Water", Amazon
3 March 2013
  • Summary: In brief - DO NOT BUY - save your money and get a GoPro or similar. I can't afford a GoPro because I have no money left after wasting it on this completely useless set up. The camera records beautifully and the battery life is excellent, but that is the end of anything positive. The options for attaching the camera to helmets or other fixing points is, at best dire, at worst, hopeless. None of the Sony mounts can be tilted up, down, left or right. They are fixed.

  • Excerpt: Купился на съемку под водой, бокс до 60 метров... Все это враки! Под водой можно снимать в бассейне или с трубкой. На 42 метрах под водой в боксе плескалась водичка!!! С Intova и GoPro мы опускались до 50 и все было хорошо!!! Без экрана реально не удобно. Не понятно что попадает в кадр. Хотел купить резерв для Intova. Выкинул деньги! Теперь буду покупать GoPro с экранчиком.
  • Pros: Есть оптический стабилизатор.
  • Cons: Отсутствие экранчика с видоискателем.

  • Excerpt: Рабочая температура перекрывает все возможные достоинства, брал для сноуборд-видео. Отрубается на холоде при небольших ударах, то есть при использовании клейкого крепления на сноуборде, отрубается практически мгновенно. Если со шлема то снимает. Брать не стоит однозначно.
  • Pros: Цена 9тыщ, картинка на мой взгляд лучше гопро 2, гопро 3 сильвер.
  • Cons: рабочая температура от 0 до +40
