Cons: Its expensive for a kids toy that has a good chance of getting broken with really hard use. Audio recorded is really poor.
So, first - I'm not a kid. I'm 41, and my Mom got me this for my birthday... and... I'm a kid at heart with a love for cameras.. and anything dealing with cars.. And I have a 3 year old son..
I was really skeptical about this when I first saw it on tv at a toy show. It works, its neat, and its really compact. The video quality is actually OUTSTANDING for a camera of this size. Its self-powered with an internal rechargeable battery.. charges with a USB port. It took 45 min to charge the first time I used it. It will also charge off of a standard USB plug (like the one used to charge an iPhone or iPod).
It's the same width as a standard hot wheels car, only longer. About the same weight.
It has a front mounted camera and microphone. The rear has a USB port under a rubber flap, on the top is the charge indicator/record start top button.
On the underside - its got a postage stamp sized color LCD screen and two buttons. Controls are really easy to use. The two buttons on the bottom switch between track use (indoor frame rate) and outdoor use (higher frame rate). They two buttons are also the play/stop and FF to the next clip. No editing is allowed on the car itself. this all must be done while attached to a PC or MAC. However you can delete entire clips on the car.
There is a power switch on the side of the car to turn the entire thing on and off.
The car seems fairly sturdy, not waterproof. Not meant to be in the dirt or sand. The screen could get scratched pretty easy since its on the underside. The wheels are FAST..Read more ›
The construction of the cars is great, and I've seen them take lots of abuse. The video quality (although not high definition) is very clear; and they record in real-time (no jerky video). The video files are easily transferred to any computer with a simple USB cable, and can be played back or saved without any additional software.
The cars come with multiple attachments for secure mounting as an action camera.
The black car/camera seems to "hide" better than the white car, when attached to things, or as a spy recorder.

My reviews are real, and typically based on weeks of actual product usage. My opinions are not copied from other reviews, and are from my own personal experiences.
The battery life could be better or maybe just let it take a AAA instead. The battery lasts about half an hour at most for us. But that is enough for about 2 or 3 videos, which is about all the 512Mb storage can hold anyway. And it does not take external storage cards.
The quality is actually pretty good for such a small device. It is not HD or anything, but plenty good for sharing on a Web site or via email. And it is in AVI format which should be accessible on most devices or easily converted.
Audio can be hit or miss. The mic pics up a lot of the wheel noise and scraping noises as the car moves around, but if it is sitting still, it does well. It does the trick.
You can replay video (without audio) on the car itself. And you can delete videos to free up space.
It's great that the car fits on most Hot Wheels tracks, and the wheels spin freely enough to play on hard surfaces. The protective case and wrist strap work great and seem pretty durable. And they can be used to strap the car to other objects, like parts of bikes or helmets. The sticky attachments are nice to have as well, but we haven't had to use them yet. I'm sure we'll find the camera car stuck to our automobile one day. :-)
We do wish the power switch was accessible while the car is in the protective case since the case is hard to open for the young ones.Read more ›
