Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
.: The cam is very rugged. Lost it at 70 km/h and it still works very fine. .: It's very cheap for the product it is .: it has 50 fps option : impressive .: Video quality is fair but resolution at 50 fps is only 320x240
Cons:
.: Support is fragile. It broke at the first use but I fixed it. .: It has not internal batteries but uses AA 1.5V. .: Audio quality is not good, but you can improve it removing the mic's rubber protection
Other:
.: It records Video files not compressed. One hour of video is something like 2Gb SD space. .: First time it's not easy to find the right position on helmet. You need to try and try again to find the correct angle of view. .: SD card slot is "reversed", not intuitive
Bottomline:
Good choice : absolutely entertaining. It's not a 720p, but it totally worths its price.
