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. It was better priced than the GoPro and with many more accessories that are not included with the GoPro. The only fault I've found is the digital zoom will not work at 1080p, but does work at 720p or lower resolutions.
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. The Swann is actually a chinese AEE sports camera SD20 I believe and they also have different models SD19 SD21 etc so don't bother with swann tech support.
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. caution: high resolution, large format videos take a lot of memory.
