    It might be a great bit of kit, but would say from experience think hard about how much time and patience you've got for the editing and downloading side of things before buying any of them

    Maybe it's just me, but I can spend hours on something that then looks a bit crap really  Shocked

    I can change a mousse and do an oil change quicker that I can produce a 5 minute 'masterpiece' Very Happy

    They might be better now , but Ive seen a few that people have tried in the past , and for £30 they arent bad , but they dont cope well with vibration / light & dark etc , so the quality is pretty ropy at times compared to GoPro / Drift

    The 900mAh battery wont last too long either , but worth a punt .

    Spend a bit more and get a tidy one Keith as muffy said they don't like low light, they may be 4k but at what fps (frames per second) probably ok for walking but shite for anything faster

    I had one before - i think it might have been even cheaper than that ...
    as they say the dark / light is not too good 
    and sometimes the actual inside of the case steamed up .... heres a vid I did with it 



    ... I never liked the big square thing getting caught on branches and stuff (and eventually thats how I lost it )

    I now got one of these - and its bulletproof
