Review: Swann MDV-450 Action Camera


In the future, when we all have electronic eyes, we will be able to record all we do through the sensor in the pupil, and directly into our positronic brains. From there, we will put our interface finger into the computer, and upload all we know. For...

Loved it as a camera to have on my keyring (just for whatever) until I finally got a new cell phone with a camera ... which works as well or better. But if you can find in under $10, it takes a micro SD card, has zero instructions (hard to set date...

Surprisingly good quality Picture and Avi film

Very hard to align, keep strait and still to get good centered picture ; Needs A LOT OF LIGHT (but all digital imaging does) ; CAN FIND IT FOR $10 OR LESS ON THE INTERNET with free shipping

Swann SW361-MDS 640 x 480 MAX Resolution MDV-450 Action Camera - Mini Video Camera & Recorder


If you need a camera to capture video from you helmet, this is it.

great buy!!! It was on sale for $39 Easy to use. Comes with everthing you need including a head strap and a rail mount. Tremendous value

Stills are poor but the video is acceptable

pretty cool


first time i charged the battery the red light was on as it should be, also the blue and sometimes the orange i contacted tech sup and they said turn it off, it was next charge their were no lights at all, sent it back each time you pause creates a new...

small, not that hard to use (once you figure out all the configurations), records sound as well, frame rate is a little slow but not that bad for playing around

a little hard to figure all the switch/plug in configurations ; if you use a 8 gb sd card will you run out of battery charge ; mine was defective so i returned it (lights were messed up when charging battery) ; permanent battery

Great Camera for the price


Be sure when recording to make sure you now which is the top of the camera or your video will turn out sideways or upside down. I marked the top of the camera to help remember, of course the record button is also on the top. I have tried in different...

Small, easy to use. aluminum type case, screw on base for USB connection and on/off switch. rechargeable and comes with lots of extras. Removable Micro memory chip. Easy view power, ready and record lights on top of case/cover

Make sure you have plenty of light when using it or everything will be dark, black or no view at all. If you shut off the camera before saving you loose the clip. Takes a while for the clip to save to the memory. Sound quality is next to nothing

Nothing but blurred images on the 1st one.


Rma'd for a replacement, here's hoping the next one actually works properly. I will post another review when the new one arrives. Newegg is still the best place I have found for electronics on the web. Keep up the good work!

Case appears to be sturdy. Appears to be made of aluminum and weather resistant but not waterproof. The on/off switch really isn't in an awkward place considering the the resistance it was built for. It is about the size of a roll of quarters. It does...

Followed the directions for this camera. Full charge, was sure to remove the protective film over the lens BUT all the images and video were blurry if the camera was more than an inch from the subject. Too bad I just lost the extra $$$ I saved on the...

It's ok.


Not a bad little recorder for what it does. The location of the power switch is a bit strange though

Fantastic Product


I purchased this to capture a long life dream of absailing. The Helmet bracket fitted perfectly and I was able to capture every moment. My brother since has used it on his bike and was so impressed with the quality he's gone out and purchased one.
