Very nice. Just a shame there is no stock nearby, would have had the debit card out for sure.

Make sure you check the pricing and avalability of spare batteries, a spare one for my panasonic camcorder cost £63 with no generic options.
Use an anker to charge battery with the supplied USB cable when not in use or run from anker with cable when in use.

Going to investigate this as I have the older 1080p model.

How do these compare to other budget action cams? They all seem to be roughly the same....
bought one of these a couple of months ago. very good camera. I also got the coupon for the extra battery and charger. easy to redeem and turned up a couple of weeks after buying.
Option to turn off fish eye?
Cor, order placed this morning, arrived this evening. Gotta love Amazon.

Kit looks good, just waiting for the sd card to arrive, and I'll be able to assess what the video quality is like

Thanks, op

15 FPS in 4k
LMAO. Yeah great camera...
You obviously dont understand frame rates.
I don't? Gee.. well let's see ... my camera does 25 FPS in 4k. 4k video you download/stream/bluray is in 24/25/24.999 FPS. I've literally never heard of such a **** framerate as 15FPS in 4k..
A very long time ago, like hundreds of years ago, we decided that in order to show full motion, you need 24 FPS.
Please... tell me.. what don't I understand?
It's low powered, it does only 15FPS which will not present fluid motion. What's to not understand? It doesn't even do full motion frame rate.... I think YOU don't understand frame rates. Having been a video editor for 20 years, I think I know a fair bit about frame rates and if you think 15FPS is sufficient, then go ahead and buy...oh wait... you did... probably why you won't admit it's an expensive lemon and think it's awesome...
You don't have to film in 4K, most people wouldn't anyway even if the frame rate was higher. 1080p at 60fps will be perfectly acceptable for everyone's eyes. I tend to use 720p.
But that's not what the video editors comments were about

The first comment which was, '15 FPS in 4k LMAO. Yeah great camera...' looks more like a young child wrote it so it probably didn't warrant any sort of reply from anyone to be fair so he/she can count themselves lucky in that respect.

To imply that this is not a great camera purely because of the 15fps at 4K is a ridiculous comment and I really hope people don't listen to eejits like that as there are plenty of them on here! :D
I was fortunate to get the premium pack cheap. been using the camera in the car and on the motorbike since.
Daytime quality is excellent night time not so good.
The extras in the prem pack may be of some use, the added mounts certainly are and the usb power lead would be good to take timed still pics over a long period possibly or for in car on a journey + 3hrs. The added underwater lens is a must if you want to use it in water.
Spare batteries are a bit pricey but even after getting mine in 2015 the battery seems to last just as long approx 3hrs @1080/60.
Its good for what it needs to do although some seem to think an action cam should be capable of filming the next Star Wars movie it really depends what you want to do with it.

Edited By: trbal on Jun 15, 2017 15:50:
I film in 4K so I can cut it down to 1080p and cut / crop images without loss of resolution.

It is WAY better to film much higher than you will actually use...... also I do film in 4K to preserve it in 4K master, even if the output shared/youtubed will be 1080p. You can't do **** with 15FPS. Its about suitable as a CCTV device at this speed.

These still have a place. Mobile phones heat up and run out of battery fast when you have more than a few minutes of videoing to do and SLR cameras heat up and are quite heavy and difficult to use when moving along.
If you're going to get one though I'd recommend a higher model one than this one, its a bit basic. I have one with really good mechanical image stablization so you don't get the shake, it has optical zoom so you can get in close to the action, you can record easily while walking/running, it straps to your hand and the screen tilts so you can film at odd angles and positions and still see what you're doing and no worry about dropping it, it can record 4k for long periods, has a much better stereo microphone and wirelessly uploads your videos. Definitely worth having one if you want to record events that last more than a couple of minutes etc.
No wifi, no external mic socket, no night vision.
Optical Zoom is good though. Why don't they make a camcorder with all the features people want and at a reasonable
price?

Edited By: Proveright on Jun 14, 2017 18:51:
I'm pretty happy with the one I got the other day. Seems to work so much better than a phone, battery lasts much longer (and is replaceable in the field), but more crucially, you can actually zoom in a hell of a long way (optically).

So I for one am glad the market has collapsed :)
The market for these kinds of devices has collapsed now. If people don't use a mobile phone then they will use a camera as most of them especially bridge cameras make fantastic video cameras often in even 4k. Some Youtubers/Vloggers like them though for filming what they do on the channels they have and I guess if you have a need for a dedicated video camera you can't argue with this price. I have not used mine in years though. take note though that this model does not have an external microphone port which might be a deal breaker for would-be film makers.

Not sure why this is so cold. Looks okay for an HD camcorder with optical image stabilisation.
There's no point in digital zoom as it just degrades the image. Optical zoom is the only zoom worth having.

It's a good camera but until they can improve the battery life I don't think it's worth half that much.
you can get nearly 2 hours recording from 1 charge it isn't that difficult to buy either extra batteries or a power pack
I just used mine at 1080p resolution and after 30 minutes I was at 40 percent. I don't think it would get anywhere near 2 hours. I did buy a second battery on sale at Argos though.
First thing anyone who buys this should do is download the latest update as without it the battery will drain overnight even if the camera is off.
you should return yours to store mate i can get about 1 hour 45 mins on average at 1080p and also I have had mine turned off for over a week and it's still full battery when I turn it on

This is my second one. The first was totally hopeless holding a charge. The replacement is keeping charge well but having spoken to a few people with the GP4 the battery life I'm getting seems to be the average. Maybe you just have an extra special unit.

How good are these in low light or for capturing family moments over a camcorder? Distortion an issue with faces?

Not good in low light or indoors unfortunately. The fisheye effect is quite hard to get rid of unless you have specialist software as the bundled GP app isn't great at straightening out videos.

The GP5 is great in daylight though.

my niece got one for Christmas, first went back as the screen stopped working after 5 mins use. second went back as the power button wouldn't work. these are pretty poor and the paint layer is wafer thin, so expect it to scratch very quick (which hers had, screwing it on to the tripod) cheap price so heat, but would highly recommend picking something else.
ideal for a budding 6yr old future Film Director maybe ? ;)

yeah, it's probably not great, but then if little Stevie manages to lose/break it, so what !

Yep, definitely 2 years. I've checked on the screen-shoot I took at the time. But it's shown on the Curry's website and I'm not sure if it will extend to an eBay purchase.

Hi, what was the warranty for this item. I was sold by ebayer saying 2 years warranty and I also remember somewhere on this forum or curry's site as 2 years. But can't find it anywhere now - not on on curry's site, not on receipt not inside gopro box. Can I verify this anywhere.
Returned mine to Hayes in Middlesex today if anybody wants it they should have it in stock I guess.

i have never had a gopro before so im not clued up on them BUT the picture quality is crap to say the least, very grainy and pixelated or do i have a faulty one? Also when connected via WiFi to my android phone its so laggy its laughable !
Same, very blurry and kept having NO SD - Even though using Sandisk Extreme card. Was on Chat with them, reformatted and manually updated the software. That seems to have solved that issue. Looking online, it's not the best for pictures indoor (iPhone quality is better). Need to take it for a test outdoors.
I've also been having 'no SD' and 'SD ERROR' messages using a brand new Sandisk class 10 32Gb Ultra micro SD card. But I've also been having issues since I updated the firmware (which was a big hassle). For example the gopro switched off at one point with two bars shown for battery. I couldn't turn it on for 15 mins and even trying to charge it didn't work (not even a red recharge light on front). Then all of a sudden it worked again for 10 minutes or so until battery turned off.
I'm not impressed with tge Gopro software apps on iOS either. The Capture app shows an old version of the firmware for my camera. But if I use the Android version it shows the latest version. I tried using the Gopro training app on iOS and that just wouldn't log in with my Gopro account. I tried contacting their customer support via the dedicated section of the Capture app, but no dice there either with an error message.
I'm beginning to think Gooro is all glossy brand with poor support and quality underneath.
But it's interesting we're both having issues with these Sandisk cards. My one works fine in other devices as does other micro SD cards in this Gopro.
Not sure where the problem lies, the card or the Gopro. I'm on the verge of sending both back.
As for image quality. Hmmm, it's ok outdoors. I have the advantage of using a lot of different cameras (it's my profession). What I'm seeing for something this small and at this price point is about right. It's passable but not as good for sharpness and (lack of) noise/graininess as a more expensive/larger camera or a newer iphone. The physics of light determines you'll lose something with a small sensor and fisheye lens. Also Gopro aren't going to put their best codec in a middle of the range camera. Otherwise why on earth would you step up to the Hero4 or 5.
Thanks for the insight, I'm pretty much getting the same issues. I spoke with GoPro again and they said the SanDisk card I have is the recommended one, however many users are having issues with Sandisk and recommended the Lexar 633x card. I now have arranged a return on the Sandisk and will order that card, which is a pain! (If this is the case, no idea why they still have these cards recommended on their website?!)
I too am getting intermittent issues when the Card does work, in some cases it records fine and then it switches off! In other cases when I stop recording it comes up with a Camera Busy and hangs, then after switching it off/on comes with trying to repair the file and then I get the usual SD Card Error.
They did say, try it with Lexar card, and if the problem persists they will exchange it.
The Gopro apps and desktop eciting software is OK, but I prefer FCP. Gopro training app haven't used that either.
Quality wise, will need to test it outdoors, once I get the Cam to work properly!
Thanks, that's useful. I'll return my Sandisk and get the Lexar. Hoping this resolves the issues for both of us.

you might be more upset to have to replace all your lenses though.. (assuming you're efs at the mo of course)
Presumably the 5d mii can do crop mode with crop lenses.


no, canon efs or efm lenses will not mount, physically, on a full frame camera.
third party lenses will, but you will get heavy vignette and have to crop manually.

Shame it's from a US site ... anything like this from a U.K. Site ? Voted hit just coz I'd love one

Banggood is basically in China/Hong Kong. Sure you can probably find some UK seller for this, its going to cost more though.

FYI: Banggood (and some others) sometimes ship from US/EU/Aus warehouses for a little more for some items, in this case its CN only.

Are these what create those 360 videos I have seen a lot of recent ?
If it's as great as this clip fron Banggood demonstrates then you might like to get a gopro clone for more watchable video.

Sony, if you want decent IS. Still rare my AS30V highly.
had the original version of this. it was brilliant. way better than gopro at the time. battery can't be replaced tho but the battery did used to last quite a while due to it has no screens and no other gimmicks to run.
its a decent camera for the price. I have a Drift Stealth2 which is very compact but major problems with it freezing. The best one i currently use is a Svc Tcl 200 about £40 as good as any of the others if not better

Why not just get the roam 3? It's waterproof and cheaper. Ok it doesn't have gps but I have no need for that. The only downside to the contour range is the mounts are ridiculously expensive for what they are.

I have one of these which I got at the same price during a previous lightening deal. Does the job very well. The no ongoing fee and off site storage is what sold it to me. Great for peace of mind if you're away from home for a while and very easy to set up. The only real issue I have is the mic is a bit sensitive and when viewing the online feed, it picks up and amplifies the noises from the fridge that's next to it. It doesn't stop you being able to hear what people are saying but it is a little irritating. Better positioning would solve this of course but I can live with it.
Voted HOT, cracking bit of kit :)
I wonder do we have better options, I'm looking for one in case.

Why these things need a screen I can't figure out!
It's helps if you are involved in an accident you can show the evidence there and then to other parties and police if they attend. most act like a screen saver and turn off after a few seconds but still record.

With mine I would just take the sd out and put in my phone, screen is just not needed and makes it much bigger than it needs to be

Pardon me for voting cold. I believe they are far better options for around that price. View angle is a bit narrow for dash cam and a bit ugly too. Anyway, I strongly recommend installing one. Great in case of incident or road rage. Keep in mind that bulkier the dash cam, less your field of view when driving.

Swings & roundabouts here, the sub £25 stuff on eBay and other sites are total rubbish (have tried them) for the price for this its an absolute steal, plus its Amazon ie trouble free shopping :)

yeah you can get cameras in Tesco for £30 but not HD, free 7 day record, motion sensing, download and save clips for free, this is as cheap as you can get for a top notch camera

Which one you taking about here, link?
Saw this deal as I'm on the petrol prices email.
As this has been down voted what would people recommend instead? (I agree this unit looks a bit pricey and I don't need cloud back up).
I just want 2 out door cameras that are good quality - wired or wifi connection is fine. And I just want the usual send an alert to my phone if something passes in front of the camera.
I don't really want lots of storage on an external box but it would be useful to have an SD card for recording up to 7 days of instances and then automatically over write once the card is full.
thanks.

Funny enough I bought one for my sons birthday a few weeks ago - spotless and I would swear it was brand new

Well it arrived within 2 days which was amazing and appears to look like new just in a plain cardboard box. I can't test it as its a surprise for my son who is holding my GoPro 4 Black hostage at present.

It also comes with a load of GoPro stickers not a deal maker but I suppose it's something extra for free!

The refurbs are from GoPro and fully approved so I would have high expectations ^^
My order of GOPro Hero 4 Silver has been dispatched from the Netherlands and says 1-2 days delivery that's impressive. I hope it's in mint condition fingers crossed GoPro don't let me down!!

good deal, I use another model of Anytek all the time, would bought another one. It comes with loop recording, Usually the camera will write on the memory card and it will stop recording when memory card reach into maximum capacity.
Anytek camera is featured with Loop Recording, loop recording will overwrite your memory card on top of previous videos. The advantage is you don’t want to manually delete or format the memory card every time when it gets full.
I think this is a fake. Anytek brand will definitely be on the real deal. I use Anytek, although not the same model as this (bought this year in March from China when I was over there) and the quality is superb. I saw the whole range out there in china and they will all be branded with anytek logo. I paid under £25 for mine in China.

I have been using dashcams for 4years now and have seen the tech progressively get better and better and prices come down.

There are better dashcams out there and if you don't mind the big size nothing beats the transcend drivepro 200 for value v quality.

too many cheap copies ruining the market for buyers. #confused.com
I bought an Anytek dash cam from eBay for a present recently (not this model, but very similar price), it worked, and even felt really well built but had poor quality pictures, so I wished I hadn't, just I was in a hurry to get it!

Not a patch on the two G1WH cameras I use which are much the same price, or even the G1W models which are a bit cheaper but give a slightly narrower view. (but buy the Novatek chipset ones!)

Better off just using your iPhone and sticking it to the windscreen whilst driving. Cheap and good resolution. And has GPS too..
I'll get me coat..
Way too much of a faff everytime. These dashcams record automatically and let you drive without needing to do a thing. They recycle saved video files (old ones get overwritten), so again you don't need to do anything or waste data space.
I recommend the Autovox B40 wedge cam, it's pretty much hidden but you still have a screen to see what you're recording, plus it's pretty top spec dash cam.
or B40C which uses capacitor which is apparently better and I am impressed with it after about a week's use.
This A118 wedge camera looks like exactly what I'm after, but I need one which has its own rechargeable power supply that will last up to, say, 2 hours. From what I gather, that rules out the capacitor version. I presume there is at least one battery version, and if so how long will the battery last? Alternatively (and not an ideal solution), is it possible to power it from, say, a USB power bank?
Thanks,
3g
The capacitor version might be safer in "hot" conditions (which may not be encountered in the UK anyways). The battery version won't hold the charge for more than 10 min, I am almost sure. You could hardwire the camera to your car battery if the switching engine off cuts of your 12V power supply. This should run from a portable battery (but could be a fire risk) as I was able to run the camera from a laptop usb port You do get 2 types of USB cables with this, one for car socket and another for laptop/portable chargers.

OK, thanks. The reason I was asking is because I'm looking for a camera that I can use to video my squash games when I play, and this A118 with its wide-angle lens sounded ideal. The trouble is there wouldn't be any power supply in the vicinity. So, from what you have said I should be able to use the capacitor version with a decent USB power bank? Does it say on it what power it requires via USB?

Thanks,

Wouldn't bother with the GPS to be honest. Mobius Action Camera is the way to go, excellent footage at night and the size of a matchbox. About the same price.

Yes I have just ordered one from banggood for my car - BMW forum peeps love them, but purchased this for my daughters car.

She is a new driver and as part of the "I will be a nice dad and buy you a car" contract I insisted on fitting a dash-cam with GPS for a bit of security and for my own investigation if I suspect any driving silliness.
Will keep her honest for a while if she suspects I might review her driving style at any moment and steal her keys away :D

For £49 (the mobius is around the same price as you say) you get a screen, GPS and no interference with DAB radio, which the Mobius is notorious for.


get a thinkware 750 if you want a full featured camera that doesn't affect dab. I've tried loads of cameras from blackvue, winycam but thry all affect dab
