Top Customer Reviews
The camera arrived, turned it on, played around, turned off and then suddenly decided it wouldn't work anymore.
Replay Tech support is worthless, blamed the sd card, which is the one they sent, refused to repair the camera.
I returned it for a refund, and will not be buying another.
1) It's pretty much bulletproof. I've crashed right onto it riding motocross and while the case got scraped up, it kept working fine. Note I have not used it underwater.
2) The files are in .mov format, which I really like
3) I typically record in 720p/60fps. Using Quicktime player I can step through each frame of the video. Nice.
4) The unit vibrates (three times for on, once for off) when you start recording. This is great for cases like wearing on a helmet. You'll always know for sure it's recording.
5) The size, shape and form factor are what you'd expect for a wearable cam. Not like the goofy looking GoPros.
6) it records fairly well in most lighting (I've done low light indoors and bright sun outside, both are decent)
1) Battery life isn't that great - about 1.5hrs tops - and you can't swap in other batteries (the internal battery is sealed in the unit)
2) Be sure to update the firmware, especially if the unit starts acting weird
3) This camera is VERY SENSITIVE TO SDHC CARDS. There is a list of "approved" cards on their website deep in the support area. If you use a card that is not on the list (as most of mine are), battery life may suffer, the unit may turn off at random times, and/or other weirdnesses may pop up. My unit works best with the 4GB card it came with, or ones from the list.
4) Be sure to format the cards using the camera itself (holding down two buttons for eight seconds). You'll get more strange behavior if you format any other way.
5) Sound quality is pretty bad. For loud environments you'll definitely want to edit the .txt file to reduce the mic gain.
1) Support is OK, not awesome. I recently sent my unit back for a new replacement battery (after two years the life was getting very short). I received a new unit back from them. Cost me $20 and some back-and-forth over email but I'm happy.
2) Video quality is pretty good, useable and decent for the things I do (motocross, autocross, roller derby, r/c cars, etc.). I've never once thought "geez the video quality needs to be better".
3) the FOV (viewing angle) is OK, but I've sometimes wished for just a *bit* wider angle.
Overall I recommend this camera. It's a solid performer as long as you follow the details above.
Autocross (auto racing)
Wakeboarding (once i get the water tight case, hopefully for X-mas)
First impressions : "Man this thing is small"
I've used GoPros before and this camera is much lighter, different shape but in my opinion a better one.
I mounted the camera on my AutoX helmet using the included HDMI cable. Since there is no display other than the LEDs it takes a second to get it to work. Basically you just need a blank/formatted SD card (To format insert the card, hold the FPS and MODE buttons until a red light appears and disappears). Then you plug in the HDMI cable to a TV/monitor, turn the TV on, then turn on the camera.
I took some videos of my race two days after I got the camera and the video quality was excellent. My choice of mounting wasn't all that great as you can't see much of the course but there's a great view of my dash. I played with the mode (1080, 960, 720) and fps (30/60) and the camera worked fine. the 1080 seemed a little too zoomed for this mounting location. 960 seemed to work the best for helmet mounted in-car video.
I attended a track day on Monday afternoon and brought the camera to get some video of the cars (because who wouldn't want to use their new toy). From the day there are two points I would like to make about the camera.
1) It's not very good for shooting videos from far away (not overly upset about this but wanted to make this observation)
2) Watch the sun when you're shooting because I got glare in several of my shots (that being said I haven't played around with the settings for bright days in the .txt file yet.)
I love the shape of this camera because there are a ton of mounts out there that this can be used with. For example, scope and flash light mounts generally have 1" diameters. Also, if you are handy at all, in theory, a custom mount should be too hard to make.
The mounting tray is very solid. I felt confident that the camera was not going to fall out during my runs. the tabs on the low-boy were a little hard to hit for the release but after a few uses it became easier.
I read a review that someone wrote, upset that they had to use a .txt file to alter their settings anytime they wanted to change settings. Two things for this comment.
1) I've looked at the .txt briefly and it doesn't look all that hard to use.
2) (from another review I read) If you're into changing settings to get that perfect shot and share it with the world in the form of awesome YouTube videos, get a few 4GB micro SD cards and label the cases... (Sunny Day) (Dark Clouds) etc. and BOOM, no need to adjust on site.
Back to general:
The camera comes with a class 10 4GB micro SD card and from what I've read I believe that should be enough to record the life of the camera (1.3ish hours, but I havn't tested this yet), however, I used to have android phones and just happened to have 2 class 4 micro SDs laying around (4GB and 8GB). The camera accepted, formatted, and wrote to these cards just fine (it is important to format the new cards for set up the necessary files on the card).
The sleeve that come with the camera is great for when you're shooting by hand and just want to slip the camera in your pocket. Yes, you can comfortably put this camera in your pocket and carry it around.
the 4/5 is for the manual it comes with. It's good enough to get a basic understanding of the operation of the camera you just dropped almost $300 on but not quiet enough to have a dynamic understanding. For that you'll have to do a little web searching (sorry I don't have the links of things i've seen).
All-in-all it's a great camera so for and I'm very excited to see how it does when I go mountain biking this weekend!
feel free to reply with questions (if that's an option)
For a lot less money I rather have the much more compact Replay XD. Of course, its smallish size also means that the buttons on the back are quite small.
That's no big deal to me, since the "On/Off" and "Record" buttons - which are the ones frequently used - are large and easily accessible on top.
At first I received a defective unit. After talking to RePlay, I sent in the defective camera and they sent me a new one. So between ordering it the first time and getting a working camera, it took about 4-5 weeks. But for $300 I got a decently good HD camera that is lightweight and very small (about the size of a roll of quarters).
