    "I strapped this camera to my handlebars in front of my mountain bike to record all my adventures. The video can get a little grainy depending on the lighting circumstances, but for such a tiny camera I'm not going to complain too much. Good buy."

    "It takes okay photos, but nothing spectacular. Lack of zoom is disappointing. Video is great, as is the underwater capability. I only gave it three stars because the outer case scratches EXTREMELY easily. I've had several sport-type underwater cameras over the years, and never had one that looked so bad after one week of use. I am a casual snorkeler, and it was in a case when not in use. There is no way a "sports" camera should look this bad after a week of light use."

    "I love this camera so much. It not as bulky as other cameras, and it is also easy to use. I love to use this camera at family events. I can literally pop it into my wife's purse and not worry. It's also waterproof so a little water accident doesn't affect it. The price is also a bit reasonable."

    "I do a lot of biking and like to record my (mis)adventures and share my total failure with the world. This is a great alternative to an expensive set up and has a standard mount hole that makes it easy to bring along whatever accessory I need for the day. You can't really do better for the price."

    "I was very pleased with the quality of the camera - its easy to handle, takes very cool pictures and video (in fisheye, which can be viewed with the VR lens) and was very simple to set up. However, I don't think this camera is an "action cam." It is not very stabilized when filming video, especially while moving and its somewhat delicate. I have also noticed it scratches quite easily, almost right out of the box, which has been a topic of complaint among other customers, too. So its definitely not the camera I would want attached to my ski pole for an afternoon. But, if you're just looking for some great photos and a cool, customized VR experience, this camera is really nice. "
