Just purchased this helmet cam for scenario events. Will follow up with a full review after "The Battle for Hue" Wayne's World event in Ocala on July 9th/10th Stay tuned...
7/13 Review... Ok. First let me start by saying this cam is very light. Had it on my mask all day and could not tell it was even there. Out of the box, the bullet cam lives up to the hype. Waterproof and durable aluminum housing gives this cam an advantage over other cams in the market but if you want sound in your vids, you have to purchase the back sound cap which then makes the cam water resistant. Should come free IMO. The function requires the user to press the power button, wait about 20 seconds, then press the power button again to start recording with only a slight beep to confirm you are taking video. Not big on that since most of the time I was wearing my paintball mask. Overall durability and picture quality made up for it. Took a glancing blow to the cam with no problem. The sound cap is truly water resistant since it rained on Saturday. Overall I would rate this cam 7.5 out of 10. Minus 1 point for the on/off video button sequence. Another 1 point for not including the sound back cap. Finally .5 point for not providing a louder audible beep to let you know when the cam is on or not. Will follow up with vids soon taken by this cam to show video quality.
