Yan, Andover Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great image quality and very flexible with different features. It's extremely robust and can take quite a knock without flinching. The additional mounts that can be purchased are brilliant. So far I've attached it to the wing of a seaplane fully exposed to the elements and it survived many water take off and landings. The wireless remote is a godsend as it allows you to access the cameras features from a distance. It displays the exact same information displayed on the camera.
Bad points:
The battery life isn't great whilst in video camera mode which can be a pain if it's mounted somewhere inaccessible so batteries cannot be swapped over. If mounting it somewhere like a helmet or handlebars, I would certainly recommend purchasing extra batteries.
