Can be connected to your phone and comes with heaps of accessories
That looks wicked. I got mine at 50% off for $120 as well. Looks alot more like the first camera though :smart:

They are OK, have seen others which seem to rate better but fir the money I am not complaining.
What I am doing at the moment as part of my kayak tinkering habits is looking around for ideas online so I can make an adjustable angled camera pole to mount off my gear track so it does that high angled photo shot from over the right shoulder. Have seen some DIY project clips on YouTube but nothing which I like yet. Lots of different designs online from backyard builders. I want to run RAM mounts with the gear track on the one I hope to build.
Chasing ideas and tinkering with designs is all part of fun.

I had one. Lasted one trip in the surf and got water in the housing. Wrist remote lost a button too on an earlier non surf trip.

Hi Pat,

I used it for the first time this morning in the yak so i cant give you a decent review yet. I filmed in 720, 60 fps. Picture quality was actually pretty good, battery lasted about 3hrs of continuous filming.

When i use it again ill have to be a bit more observant, it appears as if there water proof case was fogging up or there might have just been water over the lens because the footage gets a bit cloudy throughout. But ill work out whats happening next time. For the $90 it cost im pretty happy with it.
Put a moisture absorbent strip in the case with camera,a standard go pro trick.
I gave that a crack, still no good.

I actually returned the aldi cam today and upgraded to the GoPro hero which cost me an extra $55. I'm stoked with it, I tested it this afternoon the picture quality is so much better!

I'm heading out tomorrow morning for a fish, so ill see how it goes with fogging up.
Cheers
Blake

I rate my target one awesome. 1080p, battery I can charge full and use for 5 or 6 outings running on just pics and a few minute long videos and its still half full. Its been dropped heaps due to the kidlet getting to it. The $100+ no name ones are pretty good quality wise

I took the huge risk on something cheaper. Delivered in the new year. I figure most of these copies are coming out of the same chinese factory.

Even though it apparently lacks a remote, 1080P for under $27 is totally amazing!

For that kind of money I would not even bother with a remote and just wear it with a head mount strap over the top of my hat.
I have a remote on my camera and sometimes I am not sure if it has turned on or off, so wondering why should bother with an extended angled pole mount. I think for simplicity and easy of use I will wear my camera on my head with the strap provided rather than spend money on more mounting systems. If its close to your body then a remote isnt really needed plus it will catch the action where ever you look.

A while back I bought the KMart Audiosonic AS0VS002 on special ($39 I seem to recall) http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2dvjb ... eview_tech) which looks very much like a Sony. It's been really really good.

I also picked up an Abus body type mini camcorder (same as Muvi) off Gumtree for a song a while back and the specs are impressive as is the picture and audio quality. Check out the Abus here https://www.abus.com/eng/Archive/Video- ... r-Full-HD2. And the Veho Muvi here http://www.veho-muvi.com/en-au/muvi-hd/

Personally I can't see why anyone but a pro would spend $300 or $400 or more on a Go Pro when there are so many comparable cheaper options around. But as always, its horses for courses.
Cheers Paul
Kayak fishing isn't a sport. It's much more serious than that.
