Great Camera

 

So far so good, I got this for my upcoming adventures for picture and videos, I have tested it as a dash cam and as a general camera including submerging it under water, and I am extremely happy with it.

Works better than I expected

 

Great camera. I use it on my motorcycle helmet. Picture is great. Sound is a bit noisy at speed but that's to be expected
