It is no Go Pro, but it works.. For the price,I would say it's a decent deal. I took a 40 minute video with it mounted on my quad. The video was decent,but not spectacular. I feel it makes a good first action cam that will allow you to try and decide...

Great Deal


...but not a Gopro. It's 5 mp (not 12!)Good image, nice video. Case is really solid. Touch screen is ok.Have it for sled video but white balance and sunny day with snow doesn't make crisp image. Will be excellent this summer in Jeep.

Great for the price


For $59 + tax, it's an absolute bargain! I wasn't able to report on the battery life or underwater shots as I am unable to test these at this time.
