mark, milton keynes Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
*small enough to fit in closed fist
*sound is great (out of the waterproof casing)
*battery life is good (so far got just under 6 hours out of time lapse)
*170 degree angle
*WI-FI connecting with smart phone is great bonus
*Go-Pro is not smaller enough to justify extra cost
*Sony is a brand that's being around for years, shame they took so long to get into this field.
Bad points:
*when in waterproof case, sound is extremely muffled
*lack of accessories available
*not sure if will trust elastic headband mount under water

May, London Keen amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Extremely small and easy to carry.
Easy to start and stop recording even when mounted on head.
Good quality recording, especially in super slow motion.
Bad points:
The lens starts fogging after sometime.
The memory card keeps giving issues and has to be inserted 2 or 3 times to work properly.
The headband with the plastic casing feels heavy on head, and most of the time the camera tilts to back, with majority of the sky in the video with some heads of people (as if by mistake).
