Yes, no stabilisation at 4K and even at 1080P30 I had to read the captions to work out which side was the stabilised video!

No but I like to mountainbike and then I want it to be in protective case. When it's dry I like to have sound recorded so an open case or backdoor would be perfect.

Likeing a product has nothing to do with simply having no ideea of what are you talking about. That review is like saying I like red cars because the color is cool interested of what's under the hood, the power, the fuel economy...and he is using it in 2nd gear only, etc.

Well said.

4K 30 video quality and the 6-axis gyro stabilization will determine the quality of this product. That's similar to the top speed and gear changing of a sports car. The outlook of which one is of no major technical comparison.

Don't know which article to believe now, but the only connector is a micro USB so if it has video out on that, there is no chance of external microphones etc.

Images are not bad as long as you don't look too close at 12MP, seems a little out of focus towards the sides:

You don't need a mic for aerial recording.
