I am not as tech savvy as many others.

LOL The armband fits well and, like the band that fits your head, comes with an extension should you need it.

A great on-the-go camera that lets you forget it is along for the ride.

Works like a charm for I-phone or I-pad, but if you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone , it is a no-go. It will NOT link with my galaxy3 at all, so beware if that's your only phone. Hopefully that bug will get fixed sometime.
Very uncomfortable head wear mount for me. I will be making a mount of my own to suit my needs. The performance of the cam is otherwise flawless. A great on-the-go camera that lets you forget it is along for the ride.

Want a neat, rugged little camera which takes big HD pictures? This is really it. A 32 gig micro-SDHC card will get you close to 4 hours of MP4 video. The provided head mount sucks but that can be quickly overcome by velcro straps to your glasses. Long battery life and live wi-fi to the iphone.

This review is about the user interface, not the performance of the camera.

I bought this camera to record some fishing trips. A simple project I thought.

This is a typical Panasonic product: lots of good hardware engineering but a confusing, infuriating user interface.
I am not as tech savvy as many others. The printed manual is full of acronyms completely lost on me. Topics seem in random order. Finally I figured out that the only way to set up & use the camera is from an Apple or Android WIFI device (smartphone or tablet) and download the Panasonic Image App. If you just have a PC or Windows laptop, it won't work for you. In order to change resolution etc you need to access the camera thru the WIFI device. Or to delete videos off the card. If you just have a PC or Windows laptop, it won't work for you.

The camera comes with a MS Windows program to copy and play the videos to your computer (But not set up the camera. Why not???). It is supposed to let you edit your videos, but the editing tools don't work on my computer (WIndows XP). Just says sorry, can't do. Video files are .mp4, which are not editable by MS Movie Maker, so now I'm looking for an editor.

Bottom line, if you are looking for a "point and shoot" video recorder that's simple to use, and are not really tech savvy, this thing might be more trouble than its worth.

For the most part, it is well thought out, I just wish it had its own Remote like the GoPro, it uses smart phone apps to do all of the setting up of the settings, like turning off the button sounds, whether it is in normal view or in wide angle or video resolution. On the other side, it is like snake, so the head set is the best way to use it unless you have a helmet... Then there is a helmet attachment.

This device can be turned on remotely using a smartphone.

Using their tripod attachment and a bowrail I can turn this item into a bow camera for hunting.

Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
As a loyal Panasonic photo/video products fan and experienced user (incl. the company's MFT cameras and lenses) I think this camera is a disappointing contender in a market dominated by GoPro, in spite of clever product design and iOS device connectivity. In summary: The video quality is not up-to-par for viewing on a large HDTV and the item is too expensive compared to the EXCELLENT Polaroid XS100, which delivers full 1080p w/a 16MP sensor and is priced $100 to $150 less (purchased mine from Amazon for $99 on Dec. 4, 2013). As a parent of two children that I constantly have to chase around, I wanted a full HD video camera to record precious play time but that would also free up my two hands and not make me look ridiculous (like having to mount a GoPro on my forehead or chest while at Disneyland). Videos recorded on this device look fine if posted to a web site for viewing on a small screen. But this is NOT the camera for recording family videos that you want to view later on the big screen TV. Keep in mind the sensor tops out at 3.32 megapixels (by comparison the iPhone 5 has an 8MP sensor). I give it 3 stars because of its innovative design: dustproof, waterproof, unobtrusive, and connects wirelessly to the iPhone via app for live viewfinder function and camera controls. (Tip: I found that by "renewing the lease" of the WiFi connection between the iPhone and this device each time prior to using ensures a firm connection)

Color Name: Orange
Just got this cam and love it! The headset is comfortable and even fits well with my bicycle helmet. The video quality is excellent and the wind noise function actually does reduce the wind noise, as advertised. It did, however, pick up my breathing while riding. LOL The armband fits well and, like the band that fits your head, comes with an extension should you need it. The armband, and headset were comfortable during my entire 40 mile ride. Having the controls, on my arm, to start and stop recording were nice. I will be using this anywhere (driving, biking, running, walking etc.) I would like to record video.
The, included manual was not useful, in setting this up with my iPhone 5s. I had to go here in order to set it up: [...]
The step by step instructions found here were very useful. After setting it up through the information I obtained here, I was up and running! I like the integration with the IOS app. Once it's set up, unless I need to see the live feed, all I need to do is press the record or camera button. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a moderately priced, good quality wearable cam. However, if you don't desire the IOS or smartphone integration you may want to look elsewhere.
