Needs modification Review by Squidbait
When I first got it, it worked great. I could film a movie, and download it directly to my iPad, since the latest firmware upgrade, the camera is now a very expensive paperweight. I cannot download movies to ANYTHING, not even the contour program.
If it we're to continue to function, it needs a replacement lens to something not so wide angle, half of the movie being filmed is the helmet that it's mounted to.
I have to keep the sound as low as it will go, the moment you start moving, all you get is wind noise. (Posted on 11-05-01)
