Yes, The Mobius Is As Good As You May Have Heard It Is,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wide Angle Mobius ActionCam 1080p HD Camera With Dash Cam Kit. V3 / 820 mAh / Lens C / 32GB) (Electronics)
If you have seen the reviews on YouTube, DashCamTalk & RCgroups and are wondering if this little camera is everything it is cracked up to be, I'll add another thumbs up! The online, downloadable Users Guide is far superior to what you are likely to find in other Chinese-made cameras, even though the other cameras may be just fine. The PC-based interface that is available to change the camera settings works good too. The designer obviously spent a great deal of time and effort working with users of their previous designs to develop a product that has a number of useful features. If you plan to use it as a Dash-Cam, I'd recommend getting the Dash Cam Kit if you want a simple plug and play unit. It does much more but unless you are moderately technically adept, you may become frustrated trying to understand the variety of settings options and how to handle everything.
Small size makes it very discreet, very good day and night video quality, wide range of settings options, good range of optional mounting accessories, appears quite reliable, many of these cameras are used on radio-controlled aircraft which can be extremely-rough service. This unit is easily modified with optional lenses, external battery packs or capacitors, etc., if you are so inclined.
It doesn't offer a GPS interface, Waterproof housings are not yet widely available, No optional polarized lense cap which might help to reduce windshield reflection and sun flare is available.
Gosh, now it sounds like I am complaining but really, this tiny camera already does so much, so incredibly well that it is pretty hard to fault it simply because it isn't the only camera anyone would ever want for any purpose. I'd rate it six stars if I could!
Now I just wish I could find a video editing program that didn't require so much time to edit my clips for YouTube!

Would you call this a true wide angle lens? It's rated at 116 degrees, which is pretty low if you're trying to use it as a dashcam. Or would you recommend getting the Mobius "wide angle" lens version that's also sold here (but with very limited reviews)?

The Mobius I got is the one with a wide angle lens. You can tell because it protrudes more from the camera than the standard lens. It looks pretty similar in width to the images from the G1W dash cam in my wife's car. It seems quite adequate to me.
