You get what you pay for

Greg, Amazon
22 August 2012
  • Summary: This thing is good starter camera if you don't plan to use a lot of action shots. Battery life is pretty short, the sound is really bad, and visual quality is under par. I took it to the lake with my girlfriend and tried going underwater with it.

records in a weird format

That DIY IT guy "-Me", Amazon
26 June 2011
  • Summary: I've downloaded the massive k-lite codec packs for both 32 bit and 64 bit and I can't get my video editing programs to let me play with this file type. I have to use a video capture card to get the video on to my computer in a usable format. Mono sound.

simple to use if i got it to work after 3x's

  • Summary: this cam is so easy and simple to use and if you cant then a box of rocks is smarter . the buttons are kinda stiff but its watter proof up to 10 ft so it has to be that way . 4 GB card will give you 2 hrs of record time .

Not really that great

Sean O. "Seanzky", Amazon
24 August 2009
  • Summary: The quality is what you'd expect from something of this caliber. It does feel solid and tough but the mounting is a pain in the neck and very limited. When mounted on my helmet when I go mountain biking, all I can see are trees.

not worth your money

KGB "Kyle", Amazon
11 April 2009
  • Summary: I received this as a gift and, after a few uses, I will be returning it. Lets see, where to start? The negative reviews above are correct in pointing out mounting problems, but it depends on how you use it.

Good potential but poorly executed design.

Speedy "Speedy", Amazon
4 August 2007
  • Summary: For the price (about $80) the video quality is okay. With a 2GB SD card which you can get for less than $20 you get 1 hour of video at 640x480 and 30fps, or over 3 hours of video at the next lower resolution at 15 FPS. Video was not as smooth as I expected but still ok for the price.

Sensor Dust

Alex Gerardo Renner Meier "Alex Renner.", Amazon
7 November 2006
  • Summary: Not happy at all with the product. The camera sensor came from the factory with dust particles, which you can see clearly on the image. There are at least 5 big speckles and there is no way to clean the sensor (other than sending the unit back). Poor quality control is my guess.

Ok

Basil "As I see it", Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: This is an OK type of camera although I would not term it as ACTION. For anything up to normal push bike speeds it is good but stick it on to a motorbike/car or where the action is rapid then the picture becomes very wavy as it struggles to keep up.

  • Excerpt: Временами ее сглючивало и она прекращала запись в самом начале. В итоге все ролики с ожиданием 5 сек (5 секунд работает - значит потянет и дальше)
  • Pros: под водой снимает тряски не боится аккумулятор сменный в виде АА батареек
  • Cons: Слабый микрофон Есть важные но хлипкие элементы конструкции.
