5PM EST this video will be done processing.  Just a fun few minutes from my driveway heading to work this morning.  Camera has a few issues  #1, the audio is horrible.  #2, the camera would often not see the microsd card today, but I'm hoping formatting the memory card (again) solves that.  I have a new card coming in the mail (this is using a spare I had which is getting kinda old, so maybe it's going bad). #3, focus and auto exposure are too slow to adjust for 'driving' conditions.  You'll notice a complete whiteout in one part of the video going from a dark area to full sun.

 

Despite the blatant shortcomings, for the price this does exactly what I need/wanted.  It's only for legal use and hopefully is never needed.

 

720p since 1080p will just needlessly write more data and wear out the memory card faster.

Don't know where you live in upstate NY, but it looks pretty nice. Maybe not so much in the winter. Also, you didn't come to a full and complete stop at the first stop sign, I'll have to notify the constable.  :P


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

I'm about 10 miles east of Albany.  There's a stop sign?  :P

I'm going to return the camera, it keeps doing the 'memory card full' thing.  Obviously the image and audio quality are poor, but at least it's got me onboard with having one, just going to review what models are currently best bang for buck (starting with Slim's recommendation).

 

**Update - gonna give this one a try:

Only $17 more than I spent on the generic POS.

The G1W is awesome!

 

 

Actual image quality is much nice, Vimeo now compresses and resizes everything to 720p.  But it's obvious compared to the video above this camera wins.

 

**Update - then last night the G1W dies!   :P  We'll see how long the replacement lasts.  I'll keep sending them back until Amazon goes bankrupt from doing it.
