Great for the pruce


Bought this for when I'm cycling. Great video and simple to use. I bought an accessory kit online for mounting and the micro sd card from argos. Only downside is the battery life, you have to charge it after every use, as the battery seems to deplete...

Great action cam


Great little action camera, perfect for our holiday- underwater shots & video. My son loves it, does the job at a far cheaper price then the 'top of the range' Links to your phone too.

Not a pro


A nice camera, not a gopro though. As I grew up in the 80/90, used to VHS, you can even say the image is spectacular. The cons: the button is hard to press, especially with the water case, almost to the point you think will wreck the button; the sound...
