Okay, now THAT'S sweet!!!

Any video samples online yet?

#3 VinceHaworth Oct 15, 2012 04:23 PM

Not found any yet, it has only just been announced. Looking at the spec and pricing it seems promising. I hope the test videos are good. Would like to get one on order soon.

Battery time ?

The autorotation G sensor can be switched off (good). Only negative is the 'dual file' recording cannot be switched off. So every recording uses nearly double the space required on the sd-card. :confused:
A 1080p recording automatically generates a 432 x 240 - " for uploading to websites or sending email"

Do you mean fishy = 'too good to be true' ? If so, yes I agree. It has a good spec and the price is less than half of a GoPro. I would like to seen an independent review before ordering.

Fishy = fish-eye distortion.:D Still good value for money though.

yes, it is a 170 deg lens. It looks like there could be an option to change the lens with an aftermarket one.
140 deg would be better.

GoPro white is $199 and weighs 73g without the case. Specs are similar.
