Customer Reviews

  1. Nice helmet cam Review by Gab

    It's a good quality hd camera for action sports, + waterproof up to a 1 meter. 3 hd 720, 960, 1080 HD. Easy to set-up & easy to use. Good price & enough features for the price. The turn on switch is the best out there for me, simple to use. Overall a great 1st timer to helmet cams.

  2. Ok camera Review by Twig

    The 30 fps is too slow for what I was looking for. I snowboard and the camera doesn't keep up with me. It seems slow and lagging. Otherwise one of the simplist cameras to use and the sleek design is nice for recording your activities and allowing your hands to be free. (Posted on 1/10/12)

  3. Great entry level camera Review by Chas

    This a great camera for first time users. If all you want is a solid, dependable, and rugged camera without a lot of bells and whistles, then this is the camera for you. It's as simple to use as any device out there. One limitation is that you have to connect the camera to the computer in order to change the settings. If you do a lot of high speed or slow mo video, then the 30 fps may not cut it. If you just want a camera to record your rides and post them online, then this is the camera for you. It's light and has a smaller profile than the gopro camera. The waterproof to 1 meter is nice especially if you get caught in the sudden downpour. There are a lot of different mounts. I recommend the helmet strap and flex strap mount. The video quality is great. At 720p the FOV is 170 degrees. At 1080p the FOV is 135 degrees. The mic is okay. Overall very pleased with the camera and the price is second to none. (Posted on 10/18/11)
