I love the GoPro comments. Gopro is mainly for POV this is not - it’s for taking photos of others - something that GoPro sucks at unless you’re super close to the object... that can be scary AF in some cases in the water. So all in all good price for a waterproof zoom camera.
I'm a panasonic fanboy and i'd go for the gopro over this. image will be better and it's a lot smaller.
It's not an 'action camera'. Comparing it to a GoPro is missing the point. It is just a tough, waterproof compact camera. It is designed to be handheld, not mounted onto something. So probably better for photos, not just video. It has a viewfinder, and a lot more buttons etc than a GoPro.
It's for 3d
Not the best of quality to be honest. I tried one and ended up selling it after a couple weeks. If you're spending that kind of money you'd be aswell buying a second hand GoPro. That's my opinion anyway.
