Confirmed purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Light weight, compact and high quality images. It fits easily into a pocket or bag and the various fixings are perfect when attaching to my helmet or kayak. Easy menu (once you've learnt the functions), like to one click start/stop function and the ability to replace the outer lens cover on the waterproof case if it gets damaged. When it comes to action cameras this has got to be the best I've experienced.

Confirmed purchaser Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lots of solutions for securely mounting the camera, focus is from 20cm to infinity, good quality video in several formats. sound recording is good too. Very easy to use once you have learnt the abbreviations on the camera display.
Bad points:
You have to guess the mounting direction and are not sure what you are filming until you review it on a PC, however, the wide angle makes this somewhat easier because of the field of view.

Dan, Woking Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Takes excellent footage, switch on and forget, wide angle so no need to worry too much about aiming it, loads of great mounts, good sound quality too.
Bad points:
Complex LCD settings however once set to your favourite aspect ratio & fps it saves settings so don't have to keep fiddling with it.
