Great idea, good product
on April 13, 2013
I bought these at my local optics store in Norway. I have a dive mask from Liquid Image, and my experience with that was so good that I wanted to try the All Sport.
The All Sport is very user friendly, easy to operate even with thick gloves. There are only two buttons, mainly for on/off, photo/video mode and take picture / start and stop recording. The buttons can also be used to format micro SD card if inserted, which can come in handy if you have backed up all your pictures/videos, but forgot to erase them from the card (like I sometimes do).
A small LCD display tells you if you have a micro SD card in your goggles, what mode you're in (photo or video) and how many photos/videos are saved on your micro SD card. You have to take the goggles off to see the number of files, though, it's too close to read while wearing the goggles. Photo mode is accompanied by a red light inside the goggles and video mode by a blue light, usually visible while wearing the goggles except in particularly bright surroundings or in direct sunlight. If you use the goggles in the dark (pointless because the camera needs daylight to capture anything useful), the blue and red light can significantly hinder your vision.
I have had a lot of myserious beeps from mine, an ERR message in the LCD display and then been unable to record video or take pictures. I'm hoping this is because I have a cheap memory card (Kingmax 16gb class 10 bought on dx.com), so I've ordered a Sandisk card from another website and hope that will remedy the problem. If a Sandisk card doesn't solve the problem, I will go back to the store and ask for a new product and see if that helps.
The video and image quality is good, my only complaint is the annoying malfunction which I hope a new and good memory card can fix.
