Sorry if this is the wrong section, but its the most relevant place I can think of.

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4aad2bce4c

Good? Crap? Yes? No?

Basically... is it worth $70/£42? Yes I know £10 of it is shipping.

Its HD, I dont care about 1080p, 720p is good enough, its metal, waterproof etc all the right crap. I'm not after some super amazing camera, just something that will record HD with a decent resolution to fit the screen.

Worth the buy? If not recommend me something decent around that price.

video review of it:


Looks average. I own a Contour 1080p and love it! The Gopro is too clumsy looking and sticks out too much. I use the contour for mountain biking and paintball.

Thanks! The Contour is just too expensive for my uses, I'm not looking for a something amazing, just something capable of recording 720p videos for a decent amount of time.

Think I might pick it up then, anyone else got any other input?

Yea got it. Really impressed with it for 40, shoots 720p 30FPS just fine when I'm using a fast class 10 card. Its really small too so I can fit it snug on my mask and not have a huge target. The quality isn't what you'd call mind blowing, but its very good, HD is HD, but it just slightly over exposes stuff when recording.

Going to the field with it next weekend so I should get some footage.
