Waterproof video camcorder at IWOOT for £17.99 (£2.99 delivery under £30)
Found 17th OctFound 17th Oct
Waterproof video camcorder others too for £25

Can anyone tell me if this one is ok please


Cold from me. Looks same spec as ones that are available from Chinese retailers for around £10. Personally I would suggest spending a little more and getting something that will do more than 30 FPS at 1080p. The 4k (interpolated) cameras are regularly available on Amazon for around £30. They also have built in WiFi etc.

Just a quick follow up to let buyers know that I have received the delivery from Argos!! The box was a bit tatty but the camera is in perfect condition and all the main accessories are included. I will be using the camera for vlogging and shot some footage with it this morning...the external mic and quick macro focus make it perfect for the type of filming that I do and it shoots better for my specific needs than any phone, dslr, tablet that I own. Happy days and I hope that all of the buyers enjoy it!!


For this camera it’s not nonsense actually, there are compact 30x zoom cameras for the same quality, why carry this in 2018. So all you will miss in a phone camera camera is the zoom but quality is not far off (if I compare with this). So everything depends what’s your usage. I don’t think of carry a camera like this for 30x zoom which I may not even use.


No, I got it ok, thanks! :) Just picked yours to reply to, but spotted a lot on the thread suggesting a phone camera is as good, and in some cases better. Which is nonsense


Just ignore anyone who doesn't think that this is a fantastic find. I for one am very grateful for your post and have bought one, thank you. I use all kinds of video capture devices for my YouTube channel, camcorders, actioncams, phones etc. Anyone of these devices are good if it suits the shooting scenario, because of this it becomes very subjective to say that one's better than another. Although, the one thing that I can say for sure is that this camcorder at its usual price, about £230, is great value. At this price, for something that'll be in perfected condition with a 12 month warranty, it's an absolute no brainer. BTW. Regardless of the type of camera, anything with OIS and a mic input is unheard of at anywhere close to this price, regardless of resolution etc. Oh yes, and optics made by Zeiss. Again, thank you for posting this, it's more than appreciated. Cheers, Dave.


you need to consider resolution vs bitrate... not just resolution. handycams provide BETTER video then mobile phones by far (generally speaking) BUT inferior to DSLR's... - handycams have better encoding (re: "bitrate") therefore much more video can be captured (vs DSLR on high settings) also they are 3-4x less expensive, smaller and lighter... so it depends what your intention is AND what you are going to be displaying the media on... some peoples intention is to merely "obtain electronic device".. if you are not interested in photos, want decent quality video and plan to record alot, then buy a handycam...

You will get no visual stimulation out of the pinhole lens in this brick. I wouldn't even buy it for a child to use.


Such a shame what happened to Vivitar. They made some amazing lenses, esp the Series 1 line. Now, like Kodak, they're a front for cheap Chinese crap.

Amazon are quite good, let them know it's not working as expected.


I've played around with it and it does seem to have a lot of potential. The app doesn't have 4k video, but it's just only been released, so hopefully they'll add this feature in the next update. There's more degree of rotation as unlike the Osmo 2, the YI can rotate 360 degrees and it also includes an extra function which holds the horizontal.


I have s8 and I can't get it to work properly, it has a mind of its own, the app is utter rubbish and Bluetooth connection from the app keeps disconnecting and also the camera using the yi gimbal app doesn't focus properly. Don't know if Amazon will refund? I tried calibration few times, using Samsung camera app I was able to make a video however it wasn't straight.


Arrived this morning and really struggling to get it working correctly... Think my Huawei P20 Pro may be a bit too big for it

Well.. these are correct observations, also manufacturers trying to sell numbers and new design since Henry Ford, only because newer is better, etc. It is not necessarily the point regarding action cameras. For me personally this is a product with small footprint and few sacrifices had to be made. Decent 2.7k is more desirable vs fragile DSL size device, or over complicated features.


Ok thanks


They're quite different devices, the Yi 4K has the advantage of replaceable batteries and a usable interface on the device itself but it's extremely fragile (mine shattered from a short fall) and the dive case it needs for use a gopro mount and weather sealing is bulky and fiddly to use. I've got both and generally prefer the Sessions for their much smaller size and weight which makes them easier to mount.


Lots of factors. Sensor size, sensor quality, model of processing chip, lens quality, etc. Unless you're familiar with the components, the best bet is to read a review on a specialist photography site like DP Review (general tech sites like TechRadar aren't very good).

Just received mine today, was supposed to be next day but I called on saturday and he said due to supply and demand a lot of units had to be shipped from a bigger warehouse. Just charging mine now seems good build quality wise!


Has anyone had any tracking information through? It said next day delivery on the order but not heard anything.


That's not bad at all for a helmet camera.


Resolution does add to the battery time, yes. Based on what I have experienced - it JUST about gets me to work on a charge at 1080P30. 1080P60 (plus I have stabilisation on) gets you about 1:30 1080P30 gets you to about 1:45 720P did me about 2hrs


Thanks. I take it turning the camera down in resolution doesn't add anything to the battery time? Just under 2hrs might actually be ok but if I can stretch it slighly?


Back in stock. Just purchased one from John Lewis website.


back in stock


Bought one on impulse before holiday to Japan. Turned out to be a great buy, quality is superb and having it always in your pocket adds to the value. Not having a screen wasn't a drawback for me as it's so small you always know where your pointing. I just kept downloading the video/pictures to a HDD and started again. the battery lastest for hours and was charged quickly. Not just for action and drones IMHO.


Got this thanks to a HDUK Argos deal for £120. I upgraded from an EE Action Camera (£20), was very disappointed picture and video quality not a remotely a step up. But the size and no need for a case is good.


No screen, purely an action cam, and fixed battery too. Have a look at the new hero 2018, can be had for not much more, perfect new to the brand camera

Camcorders usually have the advantages of good optical zoom, and usually very good optical stabilisation to go with it, making them useful for random holiday videos as well as good ergonomics However if you want better quality than your phone then get something like an EOS M used from eBay for about this much, load on magic lantern and turn up the bitrate to 1.5x. Always record with the shutter speed at double your frame rate, so 1/50 for 25fps etc. I think they've worked out a way to record 2.5k raw on there as well, if you want to look in to this stuff more. Magic Lantern won't remove the 30 minute limit but you can set it to automatically restart recording at the end, with only a few dropped frames


I'm wondering this also. I can't see a benefit to these any more. A phone will also have access to an app store for video editing on the go, wifi/bluetooth built in and a better screen. The only benefit I see is the optical zoom.


Let's face it, nobody will ever want to watch your 2 hour long video from a family trip to Disneyland anyway, and for anything more serious cheapest camera with flog, interchangeable lenses or some older Canon with Magic Lantern firmware will beat this crap anyway. Even smartphones have larger sensors than this camcorder. Who even buys camcorders in 2018?


Yes, they all have their uses.

I went from the original yi action cam , to a yi lite ( which i consider even with the session 5 deal the best budget action camera out there for what you get specs wise versus price ) . I had been looking at upgrading to a yi 4k ( well dropping hints as my bday is coming up) so have been keeping a close eye on prices especially on amazon as they always have deals and offers. But when the session dropped that was a no brainer purchase. I'd take no screen over rugged , small easy to use and waterproof out the box any day of the week now esp as most of the stuff i film is dogs at beach


No issues as such but 25p looks slightly different from 30p. 60p is good for slow motion. Its easier to mix footage from multiple cameras if they have same frames rates. 25p gives slightly better low light. But only slightly. But higher frame rate is better for fast movement.


Hmm ok, does that cause comparability issues? Must say I've been using 30/60 FPS on a go pro and not noticed any issues yet.


Uk is mainly 25p and 50p but some of these action cams only do 30p and 60p etc. Thats what i ment about 25p. I think go pro might do 25p.


25p? Eh? From the reviews I've seen, image quality between the hero 5 and the yi 4k is very close. Either can edge it depending on the environment at the time, but largely interchangeable. The go pro has some great additional features, such as robustness, waterproof as is, better EIS, but you pay significantly more for those advantages.
