Good: decent quality footage. Sturdy and lots of different fitting options included for fixing. Bad: the first card i used in the camera all the footage got corrupted. Not sure if it was the camera or the card. I bought a replacement class 10 card and haven’t had the problem since. When disconnecting from the computer make sure it is safely removed or the camera has been switched off otherwise it can freeze the camera and require a reset.
Feature packed and rugged. . Bought as a present for a relative into outdoor sports and activities, such as rock climbing and watersports. They’ll be able to video their exploits safely, because it is hands free and comes with all the attachments for fitting to a bicycle or a safety helmet. The specification is really good for the price. It is feature packed, rugged, and even works under water.
The best ‘go pro’ alternative. Drooped it loads off times and not left a mark or scratch. Keep in full hd for the best video quality, the video quality is great, detailed and the lens is very wide angle toogreat for mounting on your bike, helmet, car, under water etc. You would be splitting hairs to find video quality difference between this and a sony, or go pro.
Had it nearly a couple of years. Still good battery life etc. Used regularly including in the sea.
There are better, i have the go pro thats double the price which is awesome but the polaroid is fantastic value for money. Fitted to bike and been in the sun and the rain. No worriesi would recommend this.
Polaroid XS100 Extreme Edition HD 1080p 16MP Waterproof Sports Action Camera + Mounting Kit Included : Apart from everything else this camera performs awesome. . This is an update on this cam. Firstly after using this in so many action sequences it’s a perfect yet awesome camera to have around. I have a sony go pro the resolution of which is that much more crystal and handles most recordings especially underwater so perfectly. With the polaroid i’m not knocking it as for a higher frame rate you can go to 720p and get an absolute quality picture. Battery now this is an important part of the equipment and in both cameras the battery is in a sealed unit, so once that goes that’s the camera no longer working where the battery is concerned. This batter in this camera will last for ages, i always try switch it off in between shoots as to conserve the battery that much longer. I was able to record video in stages over two days after the last chargeis concerned. Just remember to switch off after any filming. Its very convenient to film sneaky pieces of video.
