Heap of garbage
I bought one of these after reading good reviews about the brand. It was to replace a cheap action cam that we use when flying. Before trying it our for that I decided to use it in the car as a dashcam to get used to it. It worked well for a couple of weeks then suddenly started restarting as if the power had been interrupted. Also it looked like the battery would not hold any charge. I took it back and they happily replaced it. Plugged in the new one and it did exactly the same thing as the old one, this time as soon as I plugged it in. I thou...ght there must be something else wrong, either the power supply in my car, the USB cable or the SD Card was faulty. One by one I replaced each external item but nothing made any difference for more than a short period. My conclusion is that either this must be a bad batch or they do not work properly in dashcam mode.

won't turn on every time even when charged
so I got this from Kogan and it took more than twice the time it said it should take to charge on the manual. not only that, I have found that I'm having trouble getting it to turn on every time I want to use it.

Good quality pics and videos
Nice small camera that I use alot for skiing. I have had some really nice footage from it. Don't know how it compares to other makes/models. Good pictures etc. My only gripe is that because I wear it on my helmet it is very hard to tell if the video is working or not. It beeps for power on and off - both extacly the same beep. It also beeps for record on and off. Again both exactly the same beep. Sometime I think it is on when is it actualy off and other times I think it is off when it is recording so the card gets filled up with rubbish. Alot...of times I have had to remove my helmet in frustration because I am not convinced it is working. It should have a different sound/beep for each function and it would be much better. This is a pretty major set back when using

I would look elsewhere
I bought this as I already have a KB Camera. As a couple have said before, the second I opened the waterproof case the clasp broke. One small plastic latch that shattered 1st time. That aside, no instructions or dedicated app. The KB App isn’t the best. Loud beep when you take a photo that you can’t turn off or reduce volume. There are some good features but overall I wouldn’t.

Quality is meh, useless in low light and camera stopped working completely right after the warranty finished
Quality was never great in recording, colour was always duller and never true.
Inside the water proof case the camera has terrible audio on top of audio not being great in the first place.
Was adequate as I was using it as a motorcycle "daschcam" in case of an incident. But one day the month after it's short warranty expired the camera no longer turns on.
I didn't buy it, I received it as a gift so that's why I'm not upset enough to give it a one star. Reading the reviews others have posted I would never recommend using it as a dashcam because apparently it likes to turn off randomly during recording, making you feel like you're protected only to find it wasn't recording when someone merges into your vehicle.

KBX450 bought Dec 2109
Lack of information on instructions,no instructions how to delete files on camera screen (stand alone )when Wifi or comp' is not required disappointed the buttons do not initiate commands without repressing until beep is heard. though 14Mp is great viewing.
Reading other review the red light goes out on the screen when fully charged

I brought a KB X450 from JB HiFi before going on a diving holiday in the Maldives. I had high hopes of it being a good camera but unfortunately when opening the product for the first time the latch on the waterproof case broke. The plastic that hinges the latch is very brittle and only has one tiny screw holding it in place . Very disappointed never even got to use the camera so I cant comment about it's performance . I just packed it up in its packaging.... off to get a Go Pro . Kicking myself for not getting one in the first place.

yet to test
I'm having problems with charging it every time I take it off charge it won't turn on any way of fixing this issue and how do I know when it's fully charged
Not bad at all... best KB yet
I purchased the 400x because it was able to take 5 second photo bursts that my GoPro 7 didn’t do....I use them connected to my photo drone... the quality is good and this model is easier to operate than previous models... I failed to fasten it to the drone correctly and the camera fell some 450m onto a concrete road whilst photographing property, the waterproof housing case was completely destroyed but the little camera survived. This model feels better in the hand than other models. I use both KB and GoPro and KB is more value for you money.

Couldn't use it right from new
This was bought for work use and we had gone to the store (Harvey Norman) to buy an advertised special on a Go Pro. The store attendant talked us into the KB instead, giving glowing reviews of its features so we bought it. The app was downloaded to the phone and we tried to connect to camera- it found the camera but kept giving a message that 'There may be a problem with your connection". So we thought we would just record using the camera and not worry about the app. Turn it on, press record for the first time, starts recording then after ...about 10 seconds of recording just shut down. Kept doing the same thing and with no obvious way on the camera to play it back we couldn't even tell if it was actually recording. We assume all the playback etc uses would have become clear on the app but as it couldn't connect to the camera it was absolutely useless. Took it back to Harvey Norman, they couldn't get it to connect to the app either, kept getting the same message. This may be a great camera if it actually works but as we couldn't get that far it was just a useless box. Returned for a Go Pro, I will do a review once it is charged and hopefully working.

Good at first but waterproof housing leaked
I was pretty satisfied with the product when I used it for my first diving trip. However, the waterproof housing started to leak during my second diving trip. As I could not head up the surface asap, i had to painfully hold my camera underwater for a good whole 20 minutes. I could not salvage the device, the only thing that was recoverable was the SD card. Batteries were burnt out and the device would not start any longer.
Low quality product and accessories
I recently bought the camera and had to get it replaced immediately after testing because the case broke. After going on a diving trip and using it for 1 day, the case broke again which left us with no underwater camera for the remainder of our holiday. Software is clunky and sometimes stops working completely, requiring a re-boot. Would not recommend - spend some extra money and get a GoPro.
Better than expected underwater camera
I bought this camera from JB HiFi not knowing what quality to expect from the underwater shots and videos. It has been the best little thing, so compact and unexpectedly good quality given its price point. I would highly recommend this camera if you are looking for an underwater option that is not as expensive as the GoPro.
When I bought this action camera I had narrowed the choice down to 2 – the Kaiser Baas X4 and a Sony model. Although the salesperson suggested I go with the Sony, I decided to buy the KB X4 as it was more compact. Also its accessories were compatible with GoPro which at the time I thought might be beneficial.
While I was generally very happy with the X4, it was the glitchy software that ruined my experience.
Setting up was pretty simple if not time consuming and the picture quality was very good.
The problem started a few months after I bou...
Questions & Answers
Why does the Kaiser Baas x250 not save its settings when you turn it off and on again? This is very frustrating and time consuming. Also it randomly stops recording and or turns off - Grrr...
Other than those gripes the recording quality is surprisingly good for the price.
I have downloaded the app and on the back of the X400 it says connected to my iPhone. I went through the menu options and it says connected on the camera. But in Settings wifi on my iPhone it says No Internet connection. And it’s stuck on the Connect To page. Can’t get to the control page on my iPhone. Can’t see any photos or videos on the camera in the app on my iPhone.
Have just purchased X450 camera and wondering how do you change the mode setting from Photo to Video or Timer when underwater? There was no instructions in the packaging and I am a complete novice. Also trying to find the app and how to turn on WIFI. Thanks
