Summary: This model is still reasonably priced and fixed the major issues of the previous versions (accidental card removal, trashing the data and often the card) and not seeing the viewing area. The one big outstyanding issue is the small amount of internal memory.
Summary: I bought this to replace my ATC 2K that wore out after 4 years of use (rubber deterioration and some mechanism breakage). This model is obviously an improvement based on lessons learned from the ATC 2K. The menu options on the 5 are easier to manipulate because of the video screen.
Summary: Took this camera to war... Did OK but some of the plastic parts took a beating from the ruthless and relentless sun, then the horrible winters in the mountains and it broke down a little. But a little rigging here and there and it was fine every time I needed it.
Summary: I recently purchased this camera after reading some of the reviews here. But after I received the unit and tried it in my car, it works beautifully. I like the size of it, the wide angle which allows me to cover the whole highway and side walk without having to move it around. Great.
Summary: After reading a number of the negative customer reviews, I felt compelled to add some positive light to this camera given my overall positive experience. I've been using the camera in the pool to film my swim stroke underwater and also out in the ocean when I paddleboard.
Summary: I purchased what appeared to be the simplest and most inexpensive Video Cam for my fishing outings in my kayak. The fact that I could attach the Cam to my hat, paddle with both hands and replace the "one that got away story" with "the one that got away video" was a great advantage.
Summary: Here's a small 1min clip shot at 640x480 with the audio at the lowest setting (2 different audio settings). Converted to Divix to make the file size smaller for quicker upload. For what it is, it works well.
Summary: This is a low end helmet cam made for those that want to easily capture the activities they enjoy most. The video quality is not stellar, and at times a little grainy as it is not "high speed" processing. However, we use this when out mountain biking, and it shows what we want it too.
