Top critical review
Decent especially for the price
on June 5, 2017
Ok, I completely had to rewrite this review
The negatives (LE take note)
1. narrow field of vision, about 65mm lens respectively to 35mm SLR cameras (camera people will know what I mean)
2. terrible in low light, in a bar it will pick up your conversation decently amongst ambient noise but video quality will be unusable. In twilight you can make stuff out but not in detail.
3. 2,5 hrs run time, Sometimes it won't always record all the way through. When it does you get about 5-30 min videos broken up into their separate files, though they are all in time sequence without gaps, you would need to piece it together to make a 2.5 hr video.
4. it is not covert. the clip being on the back makes you need to keep it outside your pocket. relocate the clip to the front and you could keep the unit inside your pocket with the lens sticking out for recording. Being a narrow field of vision, you won't get a wide view of a conflict scenario
So great as a helmet cam for sports. Great for a car camera. I put it on the hand grip on the passenger side to over look me as I drive. It is still pretty narrow. The GoPro Session gives a better field of view. But when placed right, this will be a good security camera for traffic stops or proof of conduct later in court.
For other than sports/helmet cam/
Honestly, buy a GoPro or Session and apply it or conceal it in a manner beneath your clothing with the lens poking out. and carry the remote in your pocket or belt. When you see an approaching conflicts depress the record button on the remote and you will get much better results.
Im glad I bought this, I will find use for it. But be aware it is limited.
