OKAY, OKAY, I added a truncated and compressed video from the camera (I cut a bunch out of the middle and compressed the file) so there's quite a bit of the flight missing and the part where were searching for the crashed balloon been cut too. You'll probably want to take some Dramamine or chew on some ginger before watching.

Despite this little device being launched on a 932 cubic foot homemade hot air balloon powered by Tiki torches, which after reaching an altitude of 730 feet, caught fire and dropped the camera (along with the burners) into a 200' conifer, in a rain-forest, in the Pacific Northwest, during the month of February, and then not being found for another three months until after being blown out out the tree during a major windstorm and then randomly "stumbled upon" while laying on the forest floor, on the side of a ravine...

I pressed the power/control button...it came on!

I hooked it up to the computer...and downloaded an hour of aerial footage including; a fire, a crash, and my search party.

It still takes video...

"We report, you decide."

For more details see:[...] where I posted pictures and construction details. I ripped pictures from the video, as trying to watch it made everyone nauseous due to the pendulum effect of the camera hanging from a string, next time I'll mount it to a fixed strut. I could perhaps post an edited video, when I have some time, but it was pretty hard to watch.

I purchased this video cam for a special project that I couldn't use my regular video camera for. The sound quality is outstanding. In well lit ares and day light, the picture quality is absolutely amazing. However, the quality is kind of grainy in night light or dimly lit areas. This little video camera is absolutely amazing. It records up to 2-hrs, no problem. I put it on my dash board and recorded as I drove, the video was unbelievable. I absolutely love it. So worth the $88 I spent on it.

I purchased the POV MAC-10 to record my bicycle rides in case of any incidents with cars. The advertised recording duration of 2.5-3 hours fitted with the general length of my rides. I have found the compact size is terrific for mounting on a bike helmet but the mounting kit is a bit basic and it only took a few uses for the bracket along the base to snap off.
The video quality if fine for my intended use but is poor if you are interested in finer details of what you are recording.
My biggest complaint is that the advertised battery life of "2.5 - 3 hours of record time" is a clear case of false advertising. From the beginning I have only managed to squeeze slightly over an hour of recording out of the MAC-10. I tried a number of things to get more recording time out of it to no avail. In the end I contacted the vendor's support people to see if they could help. After some correspondence I was told the following information that clearly conflicts with their advertised specifications...
"Its a 280 mAh Li-Ion battery with expected duration in the MAC10 of about 1.5 hrs (+\- .5 hr depending on conditions). His 75 minutes is about right. It's not defective."
When I suggested that 65 minutes (the best I can get out of it) is very different to the 2.5 - 3 hours they advertise I hit a brick wall. The support people will no longer respond to my attempts to contact them and unfortunately I am now outside the Amazon return/replace period so I'm stuck with a device that doesn't meet my needs and can't do anything about.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone looking to record more than a hour of footage.

First of all, I am a bit nuts to use this camera for surfing. This is my second failed attempt!!! My first was an Oregon Scientific ATC 3K that was heavy and bouncy and got ripped off my head by a big wave!! The POV has an even worse head attachment and I had to use a homemade jerry-rigged contraption wrapped around my head!!!

Also, There is almost no control on this thing and the minute its on, it starts recording. The biggest problem is that if you want it to be waterproof, you have to replace the rear cap with the silent cap, ie no sound. Well, I forgot and after one wipeout, the camera got water logged and died!

So why the four stars? Because despite all of this, it is a good device. It is tiny and weighs nothing. Before surfing, I did some test videos and it was cool (no high def or anything but clear images). Also, after letting it sit for a day, I connected it to my mac and managed to download the video of me surfing!! very fun video up to the doomed wipeout! The camera won't power on but it works as a storage device (I Now have an $88 four gig thumb drive.)

Compared to the ATC 3K, it was a lot lighter and smaller and I am almost tempted to get another one and try again. But then again, Surfing should be a spiritual exercise not reality TV!!

I've used this camera a couple of times with no big complaints. It's survived 2 trips on an Estes model rocket, a couple of hours strapped to a hunting dog, and a round of skeet while strapped to the bottom barrel of a 12 gauge shotgun. It can take a beating!

Pros: Size, ease of use. Strap it on and push the button. That's it.
It hooks up to Windows XP very, very easily. Plug it in and it is recognized as a flash drive. Very easy to download videos.
Picture quality was good. Not HD, but still very much acceptable.

Cons:
The instruction manual is poorly written and not very useful.
The timestamp feature is useless.
The mounting straps are cheap and, for the most part, not very useful. If you're looking for GoPro-quality accessories and mounts, you're not going to find them for this camera. On the plus side, it is SO small that it's not hard to mount it using your own materials.
I had trouble connecting it to a Windows 7 PC. I don't know if this was my issue or the camera's. I'll have to work with it more to see if I can get it to work.

Overall, a good product for the price, and you just aren't going to find another camera this size. It is very, very small and can be attached to almost anything.
