Top critical review
November 14, 2018
So, why did I leave a 3 star when I say is a great camera... Well, Because hopefully I will come back in about a month and add one star then add another by early 2019.
The camera, resolution, quality of image and video and pictures all great, it is what they say, shoot now, point later
Is a great camera to record pics and videos and "always" be in the picture
So, why docking stars...the app and the PC/MAC App...buggy, not there yet, lots of limitations and many "work around" Yes, is usable, the team updates the cam and the apps almost weekly...but again, there are many limitations that should have been ironed out prior to the release, like having to set you phone into airplane mode to connect the camera.
Is an action camera....is a 2 protruding lenses action camera...yet, here we are...no case available for it yet, site keeps saying "soon" Not even a stand or somewhat to place the camera while charging or moving files, other than a pouch that the minute there is a bit of dust in it, will scratch the lenses. Whoever approved the final design, while is a awesome design, should have added a case and stand...yet, none is available
H.265...nope, not available
You are basically forced to use the app for everything, yet, no 5K video from it and no GPS tag....unless you buy another non existent (yet) accessory...wich we still waiting for.
Battery life...ok, if you are lucky...I got 43 min max... want a spare battery...as noted before...not available yet
Durability, again...is supposed to be a "action" cam, yet...no way to protect the lenses, any simple scratch and you have a $400 paperweight...again, would be ok with a case...or better if someone will come up with lens protectors.
Make sure you have a fairly new smartphone with plenty of internal memory, as the app WILL NOT save to SD card, so basically for all of us with awesome 256 gig cards installed, they are useless as every time you same a pic of video, it goes to internal memory
iOS folks, you are in luck, you can use any mobile device... phone or tablet... Android...we are limited to mid to top end phones and tables...good luck finding one that meets the minimum requirements.
