copied from my review on BC:
Video picture is GREAT. It shoots a very smooth HD video but be warned that it doesn't play smooth on many computers. Burning to a DVD solves said problem (or having a more powerful computer!). It got a great low profile build and mounts great. but like others have said, it is shaky n a helmet. Battery lasts a whileCons: The built in speaker sucks. It doesn't record audio well at all. While some might not see it as a big deal 1/2 the fun of watching a video is hearing what they say or what goes on. Not a deal breaker by any means but more of an inconvenienceYou have to charge the battery while its in the camerathe software it comes with sucks. Luckily we already have some great corel video editing software so its no big deal.Overall opinion so far: Great helmet camera and worth every penny. I'll link some videos soon...
and my update:
Just a quick update to my review. We have since used this camera a lot more and it. the speakers are working a lot better after use. i don't know if its a break in time or what, but it does record sound a lot better. It doesn't compare to a typical camcorder but you can at least hear what is going on.
I'm still impressed with the video quality. We have an canon camcorder that is a few years old that we use that retails bran new right now for around 2 grand. And this at bare minimum compares with it quality wise.
