BlackVue SC 500 Sports Cam

BlackVue sent me one of their new models to test for it's flying abilities - I don't own any GoPros, so I cannot compare it to anything, but I am putting it through it's paces. It uses a 12 MP Sony sensor - I assume similar to the GP black series. I don't have a price on the cam, sorry!

Here is the first look and review.....

For those who want to just skip to the important parts for flying, here is a video from today taken at 720/60 with a non-stablilzed Phantom.
BlackVue SC 500 Sports Camera Test in Snow (1 min 59 sec)

The cam also has several high speed modes, including up to 240fps at a lower res and 120fps at 720. Here are a couple samples...

water_sc500 (1 min 4 sec)

I'm not offerring a personal opinion on the overall package because I don't have enough to compare it to. It's missing an intervalometer for the high-res stills, but I assume they will put that in with a software update if they want our business!

I do think the snow and the sun came out fairly well - didn't blow the scene out as I expected it would. I should have tried the Mobius in the same flight (piggyback) to compare, although this cam will certainly be much more expensive.

Nice. I had a random couchsurfer staying at my place who owned one of these and we went out and took some videos. It is quite good. It would be nice if somebody did a gopro comparison as I don't own one either.
