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..
Swann Freestyle 1080p HD Waterproof Sports Video Camera
7 September 2013
Summary: Great camera for to buy if you don't have the money for a GoPro. I bought 2 of these cameras at $100 each(I suggest you wait for a sale) and I've had zero problems with these them. I mount these cameras to my dirt bike and the bumpy ride has not effected them one bit!!
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..
Summary: Watch out using the underwater case in salt water. 10 months ago I did, then soaked the case in fresh water. Now the hinge pin is showing signs of rust and small cracks have appeared in the clear plastic hinge. The case now leaks. I complained to Swann and they sent me a new case, free!
Summary: I use this camera with my DJI Phantom quad which I had to slightly modify the gopro mount to fit my camera on but then it takes great wide angle shots. I then hooked up a Fatshark video transmitter to the camera and it is just great for filming in air stuff and knowing what you are filming while you...
Summary: Friends have the Go Pro but I bought this based on the price It seems to have all the features including a handy remote. havet had an opportunity to use it yet other than in the house. Will update some other time.
Summary: I think you need to ask your self a few questions. What is the benefit of name verses value. I have seen a hero and this product has more accessories out of the box. The value and video swayed me to Swann over Hero.
