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. Controls could be a little better and easier to access.
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., while riding the lifts and on runs where I don't want to record) I would need to take the camera out of the case, turn it off, then put it back in. Same thing would apply to getting it started back up before going down the runs after getting off the lift.
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. It's so convenient. All of it for under $140 is a steal. Video quality is pretty good.
Good price, many good features, verticle field of view too narrow.

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. I don't think the resolution is really 1080 as my videos don't seem as high quality as those from the more expensive units. I am a bit disappointed that the verticle field of view isn't very wide. This makes it not work as well for my particular use.
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. The video quality is excellent and it is so easy to download to my computer. 5 stars!!!!!
Summary: Great camera for the price. It comes with several attachments and the waterproof housing works like a charm! The waterproof housing that came with my camera looks a little different than pictured. My housing has the removable glass just like the cases on the gopro cameras.. Basically there are screws around the lens of the housing and a rubber gasket inside! This could be great if they ever make replacement lens for the camera..
