Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Pros: * Cheap! * Comes with bike and helmet mount * Good video quality * Easy to operate and access files through microSD or by plugging into the computer with miniUSB port * Can be used as a webcam by plugging into the computer without an SD card inserted (has two USB modes) * Is charged by USB when not turned on
Cons:
Cons: * Mount is flimsy - does not provide a rock solid base for the camera and as such pushes extra shake into the feed (handlebar mount in particular) although you can take it apart and tighten it up * Sound doesn't work on my unit (I don't really need sound anyway so am not going to send it back under warranty)
Other:
Overall pretty happy with it. It is possible to strap to your helmet without the mount system and I will try that further to get a solid base. with handlebar mount http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoL9NBYj1GM with helmet strap http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eMDEOtRP_k additionally, the bottom dashboard of the videos was done with Excel 2003, Virtualdub and superimposed with Adobe Elements.
Bottomline:
overall, pretty happy with it - works well, is small and works with my 16GB microSD card.
