I will post a full review but the short answer is no I wont... its simple not designed to be used in the conditioned we use it in. I have higher hopes for the other two I'm testing.

No 12v, also cant record while charging

How did you mount the camera in the diff places? Does it have a remote control?

It comes with a small adhesive mount that I stuck to the side of my bash plate and a goggle strap mount (great mount that 1) no remote.

Cool, Im looking forward to the "test report"!!

12V is very important, if u wants to use it in your car or bike on a long offroad trip with no 220V for a few days!!!

Cheers!!

Agreed, there are several things that as I see it are just a plain simple make or break requirement and it all comes down to practicality..... sure you can carry 10 spare batteries and 30 SD cards with you if you really wanted to. On the other hand I like to stay focused on enjoying the riding while I'm out riding :-p

Looks lekker N[]V! Where is this spot...this Zen garden of yours?

You say the cam is not up to abuse. What sand? Shaking? Ploughing?

int he sand once moving any thing from like avg 50 - 80 and those are TKC80's fair shot though as the front now has like 16 000 km's on it. almost time to replace :deal:
