Lovely little cube of 4K goodness!
Purchased with the intention of capturing a visit to the Great Barrier Reef, without being distracted by a screen or a bulky body. Worked like a charm, and very pleased with the quality of the results!
Bear in mind that without OIS, the actual video quality of this is lower than a GoPro Hero # - even with electronic stabilising enabled, handheld/body-mounted videos are more shaky than perhaps you might like. However for relatively smooth movements (as you get while snorkelling), tripod-mounted shots (e.g. timelapse video), and even just shot...s stabilised with careful holding in the hand, I am very pleased with the output. I have also found that post-processing stabilisation methods (i.e. using video editing software), combined with 60+ FPS recording available at 1080p and lower resolutions, helps to somewhat limit the shakiness of the shots. Without a screen, you'll need the mobile app to adjust advanced settings and set up timelapse shots. But for me the lack of screen was part of the appeal: you press the button, and you're recording without feeling like you need to keep an eye on the picture, so you can still live in the moment. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is that my unit has stopped connecting to my PC properly. The camera still records perfectly. And I can take the uSD card out and put it in a card reader, which that works just fine, but GoPro Quik doesn't recognise the camera itself when plugged in through USB. I'll just get the camera replaced, but it's just lucky that I have a uSD card reader otherwise I'd have no easy way to download my footage. Not sure how widespread this problem is, but that's my experience so I can't give it 5 stars. Sitll, highly recommended. Great for what it is, and an excellent way to capture some memories without distracting yourself from living in the present.
It's an extension of your eye
Got one of these as a birthday present, it's just the best. Very easy to use, just point and shoot. The best part of it, is what you can see is what the GoPro films. When you look back at the footage, it's exactly how your eyes saw it. Just outstanding quality. Very durable (I had a floating case as well), goes underwater, perfect for anyone who does outdoor filming.
The stills you take from pausing and screen-shotting are ok. Not fantastic, probably about the same quality as earlier models of the samsung galaxy phones (good, but not i...
