When Techmoan did a review of this camera (youtube.com/watch?v=Tybp5I9ow3I), it didn't support dash-cam feature (i.e. auto record/on/off with power) which was in March this year...

This has a 16MP sony exmor sensor...

Very pleased with mine.
You will need a phone or tablet to change settings

Good price but presumably there will be import duty to pay – not sure on the threshold / amount?

This will also support a 128gb micro sdxc card

Is this the cheapest current price? OR just the cheapest price that pass HUKD's moderation system?

Also, how much do BangGood normally charge for this camera - and what's the usual delivery time?

Many thanks

Thanks. I've put in a Bespoke price request.

Judging by the Amazon comments, there are various revisions of this camera. The early revisions require lens and microphone modifications. Kind of off-putting!

I bought one last week from amazon for 55 so hot from me. estimated 1 - 3 weeks delivery. pretty sure the the issues were solved by software updates.

The lens issue is a hardware fault...and requires disassembly/refocusing (Can be done by the end user). The microphone is also a hardware fault - though I don't know what the fix is for that issue.

The later hardware revisions solve these issues.

It seems like the cheapest price atm... Banggood normally sell so many of these that their products are updated with the latest lenses n firmware... FYI

I've read that it can record 240fps slow motion.
Question is, does the recording require software editing to share slow motion recordings with others?

Got mine from Gearbest for about the same price, arrived pretty quickly, it's a fantastic camera, mine is the Z23L revision no focus or microphone issues, also bought loads of accessories, waterproof case, spare batteries and charger, go pro mounts etc. Footage is brilliant.

Great, can you please tell us that with the new firmware does it become capable of being used as a dasg cam, without the need of turning it on everytime?

Not as far as I know, the dashcam modes it added were looped recording and flip the video so the camera can be mounted upside down. There are some scripts on the dashcam forum to make it autostart recording when powered on.

Ahaan, thank you! Went for the mini 0806 in the end... but this is some kit with the Sony Exmor 16mp camera!

It says on the Amazon listing that it is camera only. That suggests there are no mounts at all, so does it fit into the Gopro frame, or the Gopro waterproof case, or has it got a tripod thread, or do you need to start buying other mounts etc? Looks good for the price, I might be tempted to eBay my Gopro....

I'll reply to myself- there a tripod thread which isn't shown on Amazon, but is shown on banggood.
Off to order one I think!

Slow-mo???

£42.45 if you choose USD as the currency (you'll need a card that doesn't charge currency conversions - like the Halifax Clarity).
Plus the additional 6% TCB.
Under £40 for a GoPro rivalling camera. HOT!

What's the customs threshold for potential charges?

*Edit:

gov.uk/goo…uty

Thanks mate, just updated the description. Might help someone

I have this camera and for the money it is truly excellent.

The software has an update every 3 weeks or so. The latest update actually upgrades the resolution to 2.3k!

I got mine from bang good and paid an extra £4 for express delivery. It actually comes from a UK address so no extra tax to pay.

Just remember you only will get the camera and battery and USB cable. All other accessories must be purchased separately.
I bought the underwater housing (£8), the official bluetooth remote (£7), a desktop charger and 2 extra batteries (£11) and a generic selfie stick.

This was filmed at 1080p, make sure you set the playback on youtube to get this resolution, but bear in mind youtubes compression ruins the quality a little.
youtube.com/wat…htw

The only (minor) downside of the camera is:
No screen to indicate settings, every setting needs to be changed using the smartphone app.
Slow to start up, takes about 8 seconds before you can start recording.

Did you choose the 'Priority Direct Mail' - 5 to 10 days delivery? ($3.71)
Or 'expedited shipping service' - 3 to 7 days? ($10)

Can't remember but it took about a week to arrive.

Great price, slightly confused on the the post though. I've tried posting deals from Banggood for the past 2+ years for RC items but it always gets removed and I receive a snarky message from a mod.

Great little camera, just let down slightly by the lack of an LCD because the potential quality of the footage makes it very versatile to the extent you'd want to be able use it for applications where you can frame shots.

The official firmware alone has added a raft of great features but there is a pretty big custom firmware movement going on that has really helped to wring every last drop of performance from the already excellent sony sensor.

Hi I bought 2 from Gearbest but UK warehouse (You have to click EU warehouse) for £49.63 no Vat or duty to pay
I placed my order morning time one day and cameras delivered next day That was so nice suprice
I prefer to pay £5 and have it in 1-3 days max than waiting weeks ...and thinking of paying Taxes and Duties ..

Seems, I just got lucky! Jokes apart, if you search HUKD for banggood, you'll see a few deals have been posted successfully in the past

What about cases?

You can get the white one from Amazon delivery tomorrow - £50
Edited by: "cigbunt" 12th Oct 2015

The product page says this will be z22 or z23, for z23l, it provides a link to another page which is listed at £53.

Does it nativity record 240fps slow motion ready to share or is software editing required?

!!!!!!!!

can anyone comment on the battery recording time please ?

I've been undecided on this deal ever since it was posted. Given the quality control issues (lens focus/microphone/battery drain), I have decided to go for the £50 one from Amazon.
It costs a tenner more when factoring in the possible cashback from BangGood - however, it is delivered by Amazon (so all customer service would fall back on them) - and delivery will probably be in 3 days or less.

Any version with L on the end will have no IR filter by the way people.

I would be interested to know what the hardware revisions means, as I have a 22L.

I also have it set to record in 2k 35MBPS.
