Excellent camera, very happy

  • Summary: I've used this camera for the last two seasons of autocross and kart and LeMons racing. No problems with it at all while recording on 720p resolution. My son and I both use the camera on our helmets when driving karts on rough asphalt and concrete and the video is great.

Not Recommended As Video Is Too Choppy

Daniel Gavin, Amazon

  • Summary: I can't recommend or use this "action" camera at all. I bought 3 of these for mounting to and recording video of my sand rail. This thing must not have any image stabilization at all. All of my videos from all 3 cameras were so choppy they are unwatchable. I purchased these for a few reasons: 1.

Cheap camera. Would be OK if it lasted more than 3 years.

  • Summary: This camera does OK in bright light. In the morning or evening it gets pretty choppy and blurry. I'm giving this camera 1 star because throughout its entire life, the camera would once in a while freeze and stop recording without closing the file. All that video was then lost.

A cheaper alternative

T. Maziarz, Amazon

  • Summary: Great action camera for the budget minded. Not as fancy as the GoPro, as the features are not all there. (one that would be great is being able to flip the recording if the camera was mounted upside down). But the video quality is there for sure at this price. LOTS of mounting options.

Has one major defect

  • Summary: I bought this camera mainly with snowboarding in mind. But I quickly discovered that the camera cannot be turned on and off while it is in the waterproof case. This means that in order to save battery power (i.e.

Best bang for my $$$

MG_CA, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this toy! It was more than I expected. I first bought a gopro but with all the add-ons I wanted, I was going to spend another 100-150$. So I decided to return it and purchased this one. I got what I wanted: mounts for helmet, the car and the remote. The remote is what is sold it for me.

Good price, many good features, verticle field of view too narrow.

Todd Markle, Amazon

  • Summary: This seemed like a pretty decent camera for the price. I like that is uses the same style mounts as the Gopro so you can get a lot of compatible accesories. The LCD screen is a nice feature.

Swann is a hit in Hawaii!

PEB, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought the Swann rather than the Go-Pro because I did not know if this type of wearable camera would fit my needs. I took the Swann to Hawaii for whale watching and used the head mount gear and recorded amazing whale behavior.

Waterfall garbage

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: bought two of these for running on my Jeep offroad. They take absolutely terrible video that looks like your filming through a waterfall, and the cameras don't sit tightly into the case so you get very loud clacking sounds throughout the video.
