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.
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.
Summary: What Swann is essentially saying is if you purchase from Amazon, you are not an "Authorized" customer. Get a GO PRO! Swann Freestyle 1080p HD Waterproof Sports Video Camera Steer Clear for warranty problems.
Summary: Used twice over the course of a year. Camera died. I bought a new battery for $39 from the manufacturer which did not retain a charge. I then contacted customer service and have not heard back in over a month.
