I think it just shows up as a folder, much like my digital camera. Even using the line in for my portable DVD it only displays the video.

-Havent tried it yet. I think Brians video speaks for itself.
-I think the microphone is on the front bottom. A piece of thin tape over it will prevent the wind noise, I think.
-I like the use of the SD card.
-The waterproof rear cap is excellent.
-I would have rather seen rechargeable option with a charger than 2 AA, but that is personal preference.
I like the 2 AA setup, that way you can always just put in new batteries. I've used mine for 3 days of recording and pulling off the video and have not changed out the batteries yet.
-Handlebar mount is cool, but I feel like I'm going to break off an ear inserting it.
Mine felt the same, but loosened up after a few times.
-I havent tried the headgear mount yet.
-Doesn't like lowlight conditions.
-The buttons for the menu control are so tough, it's like sticking uncooked rice into the ends of your fingertips. Good luck wearing wet gloves, on the side of your helmet.
Same as the handlebar mount, loosened up after a couple of times. I did have some problems wearing gloves, I accidently turned it off instead of recording. I guess I need to learn the different "beeps".
-The menu is good enough, but the right side, is half-hidden in the window. Carry the manual, the first few times. I could see how it could get confusing. It it fairly self-explanitory.
-The weight isn't bad. You'll still know it's there. It's not as light as a bullet camera, but I like not having wires and crap hanging off my head.
Ditto, plus you do not have to carry the video recorder.




Nice to see you got it to fit on the helmet. I gave up after a couple of trys and went and bought a snowboard helmet.

I'll take a pic of just the camera with the strap. Maybe I put it together differently?

I wonder if I would just glue it in place or something. The "mic" is just a bump on the bottom side of the camera, I think.

It is actually has like a sticky tape on it. You should just be able to press it on. That is how we get them to stick on the headsets.

Tried to do some filming with my camera. Little bastard died a few times and never recorded shit. Not sure if I got a lemon or not... works good if I just hit record and walk around with it.

Those damn buttons are way, way, way too small.
