Great Camera

Timothy S., Amazon
17 November 2014
  • Summary: Great camera with a nice 1080p 60fps shot. I also bought the cradle with the 2 inch LCD screen (sold separately) so i can shoot some video and get the perfect angle. I read the user manual first that had a few warnings about overheating and the under water case. It does not heat up fast and over heating is normal, all you have to do is let it cool. For the underwater filming, they sell a Sony SPK-AS1 Waterproof Case (sold separately) for deeper underwater sport filming.

Absolutely love this camera

Shawn Lynch, Amazon

  • Summary: Absolutely love this camera! It is ideally suited for everything that I wanted it for. The ability to control it with my phone, the editing software, the quality of the video and pictures, it has all been outstanding. So glad that I went with this instead of the more expensive GoPro I was looking at. Looking forward to more road trips with this camera as well as sporting events and random around town video shoots.

Awesome cockpit camera.

  • Summary: As a in-cockpit camera, this is just incredibly cool. I could describe how it overlays a GPS track and speed information over the video, or I could just show you. Now, I just need to find a way for it to show speed in knots.

Not what I expected and wont work for what I ...

  • Summary: Not what I expected and wont work for what I purchased it for. My own fault for not understanding what Action Camera meant. I expected a regular camera with a view finder. I will probably gift it this Christmas. One thing though is the battery doesnt hold a charge for very long. Even turned off, its dead within 8 hours.

BAD underwater video quality

M.M., Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: *Extremely* BAD underwater quality. The waterproof housing makes you think you can use this camera to film under water (while snorkeling, diving, etc.). What you will get is very blurry and "unfocused" video. This camera is unusable for any underwater filming because of that. Apparently, you have to get a different "flat door" housing for $50 to film underwater. What a scam. Above water -- no problem. Don't get this camera if you intend to use it for underwater filming.

SCREWED AGAIN!!!

Picartist "Pastalover2", Amazon

  • Summary: Doesn' work. I bought the camera mid July, unfortunately just got around to setting it up after delays getting the right card, etc. I've charged the battery for at least 20 hours and still does not charge, amber light still showing. My guess is the battery is bad and at this point is over Amazon's return policy. Not sure if the camera is good or bad, one star because I cannot charge it and get it set up.
