Great camera in it's price range
on November 14, 2014
VERY easy to use, slide control forward to record, slide back to stop. Perfect.
Includes locks on slide control and connection door.
Ultra wide angle lens, so no need to focus, just point it generally in the right direction.
No image stabilization at this price point, but if you hold it fairly steady then it isn't an issue.
Video quality is very good.
Front lens can be rotates so your image will be upright, no matter how you mount it.
Long battery life, over two hours of continuous recording.
Uses MP4 compression, so files are around 30 minutes per Gigabyte of storage.
Includes a rubber lens cap.
No snapshot photo capability on this model, you need to step up to the ROAM3 to get that.
You need a powerful computer to play or work with the full HD video.
It has a laser line so you can tell if it is level, for me tat was useless, for some it may be important. I would have preferred the button that was used for the laser be used for snapshots.
I bought a 32GB card and used the ROAM2 extensively on a 7 day cruise, and only used about half the card.
