I like how small it is.

Easy to get it up close to the action and not worry about hitting it.

2 GoPros and this should cover the video bases for a while.

Now that the $129 GoPro is out it is not as good a deal, the waterproof case is extra and that expense takes it to higher cost than the GoPro.

The small size is nice though, and it has a magnetic bas so you can stick it to metallic surfaces.

Here it is just stuck to the lawn tractor with the magnetic base.

I am surprised how stable the video is, I would have thought the vibrations from the mower would have made it all jumpy.

This is the same price and better suited to dash cam use.

It auto records over the oldest video, so you don't have to keep deleting footage.

Wait until summer gets here, you can watch me spend an hour cutting it all!

Supposedly it only has about 60 minutes recording time with the built in battery, not long enough to fill up a 32 GB card, I believe.

I mounted a piece of metal onto this li-po battery for the magnet to stick to and now the SD card would fill up before running out of juice.

I can put some industrial strength velcro on the bottom of the battery to attach it to stuff.

How many hours of mowing will it record, or will you get stuck in an endlessly continuous loop of lawnmowing?

Here is a video of night driving in Chicago someone did.


Here is the one I just did down the street, I am just holding it on the dash with one hand so it is moving around some, and the windshield is dirty.

Can you get a different skin for it? That's gay.

It is 1080p 30 fps vs 60 fps on the Hero 3+ I have.

The camera is also permanently mounted inside the waterproof case.

It is the one in my family pic above in the middle.

Uhh, setup close to a taget / bullet trap in my backyard.

That looks nice, and the price is way way better than a go pro, for what I would be using it for, it fits the bill well.

It is so small and light, you can carry it around in a shirt pocket and always have a camera for some impromptu wide angle filming.

Yep bugs. We have those in Florida.

I'm curious about that lipo battery setup. Will something like that work on the GoPro?

It should

See my family pic above, the orange thing the Gopro is mounted on is a li-po battery.

I use it as a charging station, but could stay plugged in for longer run times (like for all day time lapse)
