I watched a lot of Go Pro videos but for my application they would not work. I am a starter at several race tracks and wanted a camera that I could mount to my headset. This was it. I had to improvise on how to mount it but got it done with some zip ties. It's light enough that I didn't even notice it. I was really impressed with the quality of the video. The only negative was the instructions leave a little bit to be desired, not very detailed.
1st the CONS: 16 GB SD CARD was not included. Video format is . MOV not MP4. To use *all* the features for this camera you have to use the andriod/ios app & turn on wifi for the camera which is annoying if you're trying to conserve your battery. Hooked up through USB to my windows 7 editing machine playback straight from a class 10 mirco sd is awful, I plug in my buddies cheaper JVC camera that's using a lower class sd & playback on my pc is fine.. So any files I create I copy them over into a new folder & playback is fine then.
The PROS: It records audio a little better then I expected. In the box is a lot of mounting hardware, very cool. The waterproof housing is amazing. Video quality is pretty good depending on light. It's an action cam, it's small, it's light & cheap. I'm able to convert the .mov to mp4 easily with a free program quickly so it isn't all that bad of a deal.
Unfortunately, this camcorder is allied, primarily, for interface with non-Mac computers. I could not use the software program IMovie interface and found that it also would not allow me to use tapes as opposed to media cards and camcorder internal memory to store videos in my library.
