If you don't want to fork out £250 on a go pro camera then perhaps this is an ideal substitute.

Features:
5mp sensor,
720p video,
Touch screen viewfinder included,
Underwater housing,
Free 4gb micro sd card

Seams pretty decent for the low pice + 3 year warranty and the 10m waterproof

Video footage looks good, youtu.be/_Eg…nK4

Only a helmet mount?

How big is it?

66mmx45mmx25mm

Also consider a 1080p Action Cam of proven good performance for £47 in this deal...

It's just no gopro

This looks the same as the vivitar that's available at currys/argos for £49 currys.co.uk/gbu…tml
This is cheaper plus you get a 4gb memory card.
Nice

The auto adjustment for the exposure is a bit jumpy on this one for my liking

great price & even better than I can go and pick it up locally.....instead of the normal eBay wait.

I would prefer to see some footage of it being used while attached to a bike helmet.

if I can find the attachments for a kayak then I'm even more keen.

From Hong Kong? No thanks. I'll stick to somewhere I can go if I need to return it.

Comes with underwater housing for recording to a depth up to 10m

It's ok but there is simalar stuff around in UK shops for the same price. For a tenner or so more you could get an SJ4000 with full 1080 resolution. It's a good quality GoPro copy but with a screen. Video is as good as a GoPro. (Lots of comparisons on the net.). But you'd have to wait 10 shipping from Asia.

I would recommend the SJ1000 just type it in on ebay this is waterproof upto 30m or the SJ4000 which is an imitation of the GoPro and compares very very well there are loads of reviews of both cameras and you can use gopro attachments on the SJ4000 you can pick up the SJ1000 for approx £47 and the SJ4000 for approx £60. Hope this helps

I bought a Hitachi one on Argos eBay store for half the price they sell at their high street branches and its excellent check the videos put on YouTube

Exactly, all Aldi do is bulk order cheap no brand electronics and sell them to 'fans' who think they're getting a 'deal'.

I wanted a camera for my little scooter and after seeing this went to Aldi and purchased one. Out of the box I found that the little clip that locks the camera into the case was split. OK I thought, I'll turn a blind eye. Just 5 minutes later while trying the camera it locked up and I cant get it unlocked! It does not even respond to the on off switch. This is a cheap nasty awful little product. £45 I would not pay a £5 for it. Its going straight back tomorrow for a refund. Be warned.

This thing has locked! any idea how I can unlock it, considering it wont even let me turn it off.

Can you link me to a few YouTube examples? Thanks

That's what she said.

Took my camera back to Aldi and they refunded with no issue what so ever. As for the product, I like most families today camera's coming out of our ears. So, effectively I am paying £45 for the surrounding bit of plastic case and its ability to fix to various surfaces. When however its fixing ability is very limited and its cannot be moved from from one vehicle / helmet etc to another, where you fix it is where you fix it and that's it then its a very poor value piece of plastic. Seems like a gimmick to sell a very poor quality camera at an inflated price.

Now you can buy a far better 1080p camera...

Cheers MonkeyMan!! looks just the sort of thing I am after... do you have any personal experience using this underwater or whilst diving?

thanks,

Frank.

Cheers, just ordered one of them.

I plan on using it while snorkelling next week (the Maldives ), the price of the batteries and the youtube videos all pushed me to go with it.
All the others getting recommended don't look too easy to handle (more for attaching to things) or soon jump in price when you want them to be waterproof.

Voted Cold for the sole purpose of the camera quality is terrible,not great at all, It can be imported from China for £30 and has been on sale in argos for £49 as a vivitar camera.

The camera get really warm in its waterproof housing to the point the housing fogs up and you can't see what you recorded!

I bought one and I have to say I am impressed. The low light ability was surprisingly good when I rode home between 8.30-9pm tonight. Will it last 3 years? I doubt it. Do I care? No. I will be sure to keep the receipt in a safe place in anticipation of it packing in; but for £45 I will get my money's worth out of it as it will be used every day.

Hi i don't sorry as i have only just got one myself but the youtube videos show off the underwater quality and it looks superb i am taking it to Thailand in August so will be using it then and also the new sj1000 come with the tripod adaptor so you can use the gopro mounts with it which on ebay you can get 7 gopro adaptors for £15 i.e chest mount head mount wrist mount etc etc
