Nice little video camera but NOT MOTION ACTIVATED
on October 23, 2013
I don't want to slam the device at all but add clarity to it's titled description. It's impressive how small it is and it records nicely. However, it does not have a motion activated mode as claimed in the description. There is something lost in the definition of Motion Activated. I received it and filed a claim regarding no motion activation mode and their definition and I quote their response; " Motion activated means the item can record clearly when motions".
All video devices do that or expected to when you press the record button. I believe I can speak for most who understand motion activated in the west; motion activated means a device is triggered to start when motion is detected. In the case of a video recording device that says motion activated, one would expect that the recorder remains dormant until it is triggered by a sensor detecting motion. In most cases the device will operate for a given period or until motion is no longer detected. In the case of this device, it does not have a feature that does this. That was the only reason I had bought it.
