  3. That product has been available on ebay and other places for quite a few months, around the $60-70 mark. My mate bought one, reckons it's ok. At $35 not a lot of cash at risk.

  6. the design looks identical to the one Aldi had a few weeks ago in their motorbike gear sale.

    for the price there is nothing to fault it - mate bought one at Aldi and it's no Go-Pro but pretty bloody good

  8. I have had one of those for around 6 months now.

    What I like:
    It works,
    It is cheap,
    Works under water.

    What I do not like:
    Mounts are flimsy,
    Colour of footage favours a purple tinge. (trees seem to look slightly purple)
    Buttons are a pain in the Arse.
    Editing footage ??? fark knows.

    If I dont mount the camera the right way up, then I have yet to work out how to rotate the footage when reviewing it on the computer. (Operator error, I figure!)

    However, just to review my riding techniques / approaches etc.. it does the job. but with regard to posting footage , I would go with a better camera.

    I believe Kogan have a GoPro rip-off for sale that seems to get good reviews, this will be my next purchase.

  10. Yep I do have one of these, and for $35 thats cheap as chips!! Quality , well for the price, how can anyone try and compare it with go pro??
    I reckon it's 'OK' the handle bar mount bracket is plastic, from china, there you have it, it will vibrate and buzz as it is designed for a pushbike, but it does work!!
    JayCar have a 720 camera that looks like a gopro copy again, you get what you pay for. Good lighting helps, thats all I can say :)

  12. I Came across a "Action Camera" from Kmart for $59
    Brand was Audio Sonic. Only tested it out a few times, but it seems to Work Brilliant so far. ( Atleast in my car )

    I like going through twisty's in the car ( 01 SS Commodore ) picks up sounds and speed really well.

    pain to edit and upload though... + need to have a sd card

  20. Mine did that the first time I used it, was severely annoyed. found if you don't press it while moving or press it slightly longer it works fine.. software problem?

    But it was only $50, cant be perfect
