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.
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..
Summary: I needed a small light compact camera that I could use on my RC airplanes for flying videos. Great little HD camera with lots of features for the price. True 1080p 30fps HD video. I like it, this is my second one.
Summary: I wanted an action cam, but didn't want to pony up hundreds of dollars for a Gopro with all the separate mounts and LCD. This Swann Freestyle has been great so far for less than half the price of a Gopro.
Summary: I have been using this camera since July 19 and find it records great on 1080P(have not tried other resolutions0. At first I though it mighe be bad but I traced the jerky video to the old computer I was using to view videos. I guess I need more graphics power..
Great package for the price. Slotted spare batteries found !!

Summary: Great camera and awesome value. I'll be very honest and say yes of course the Gopro is better in video quality and settings configurations, sound well that is par I'd say but what value with the LCD screen, remote and case the swann is a bargain.
as good or better than the gopro, and a far better value

Summary: so far no problems with this unit. i'm a novice user. it's working well in wet environments on my sailboat. it comes with several extra features and hardware you don't get with a gopro. i eventually plan to set it up to take videos of my boat from a kite.
