Categories > Sports & Action Camcorders > GIGABYTE > GIGABYTE JOLT Duo - Dual Lens True 360° VR Camera

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Great entry level 360 camera for price point....
Pros: Software well designed and intuitive to use
Inexpensive 360 camera for someone looking to purchase
Lightweight and very small
Able to use smart device to view camera realtime over camera generated wifi hotspot, playback videos directly from device to smart device or download videos to smart device
Great outdoor camera, high quality images in daylight
Accessory kits contain every possible connector I might need to attach the camera.
No stitching or rendering of images or video required in software.
Cons: Does not produce quality photos/video in lower indoor light conditions, becomes grainy.
While it claims to be a 360 degree camera with no blindspots it says right on the box that each fisheye lens only has a 220 degree viewing radius, so not sure how that is supposed to work....
Gigabyte website says it has halted all North America sales and focusing on European market, while they say warranties will be honored that might not be a good thing long term, probably why it's onsale.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this to someone who wants an inexpensive 360 device to explore the 360 degree shooting world, but for a semiprofessional or professional, shoot a little hirer, maybe Nikon. I don't regret buying this camera despite its cons.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Very impressive 360degree view from only 2 cameras.
Pros: Good clarity, it's a 360 degree camera.. very nice
Cons: 360 degree camera, everything looking from fisheye.. lol
Other Thoughts: Short battery life, 1.5 to 2 hr recording after fully charged,
No replaceable battery means your recording time is very limited.

Categories > Sports & Action Camcorders > GIGABYTE > GIGABYTE JOLT Duo - Dual Lens True 360° VR Camera

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 fun stuff with reasonable price
Pros: light, can bring it anywhere
easily operate and directly upload 360 photo to fb
not expensive at all
Cons: hope there is a rope which can tied to the wrist to prevent falling
Other Thoughts: Go Pro is my top choice actually, but too expensive to afford.
Then I found Duo 360 which is very cool. Still has a lot of room to improve the resolution though.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Guy above is the weakest troll or Sony fanboy ever..How do people this dumb survive for that long?

Cons: voice control could work better.
Other Thoughts: Please ignore TROLLS like KENNETH from Japan

Categories > Sports & Action Camcorders > Sony > Sony FDR-X3000 Action Camera

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Incredible. Best action cam available. **GoPro Killer**
Pros: *I am in Japan *I bought this without the remote because I use my Android phone if I even need a remote.

I have it mounted on the handlebars of a Specialized Allez XXL size road bike. The vibration is excessive. The new new GoPro could not handle the vibration (now they try to refuse to refund, as is typical with gopro), nor can my Galaxy Note 4 but it's a phone anyway. The Sony does it very, very well.

I have to say it. The Sony FDR-X3000 is MAGICAL.

It has optical image stabilization that is astonishing. I have ridden on old roads, in parks with stone paver sidewalks, excessive bumps, sewer grates, etc. in 4K 30fps and the video is surprisingly clear. It is really amazing after not being able to make videos this way with any other camera. The OSS compensates incredibly well. I have ridden 30km to test on a variety of surfaces using handlebar mount with no issues. I used mostly 4K 30fps and occasionally 1080-60, however the 4K is so good, there's not much reason to use 1080 at all.

If you are concerned about video quality, buy this.

If you are concerned about dumb marketing hype from a silly west coast company, get the new GoPro that was already obsolete before it started manufacturing. The only thing good about gopro is that the Session is small enough for the CEO to stick up his obnoxious a**.

I will hopefully post some videos on youtube soon, weather permitting.
Cons: nothing

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Do not buy. Same as 2014 version, no good. Same 4k, nothing new.
Pros: nothing is good about this camera
Cons: I bought this camera overseas in Japan, it is the same as the last several versions with hardly any improvements. Which is to say, it's not very good. The video quality is same as the one from 2 years ago. It took them 2 years to make the camera itself waterproof and drop their price. Wow...

I bought the Sony FDR-X3000 and it is a LOT better. It also has optical image stabilization and an optional remote. Incidentally, GoPro tried to copy Sony's watchband remote but failed.

Other Thoughts: Sony is awesome. GoPro is garbage.

Categories > Sports & Action Camcorders > GoPro > GoPro HERO4 Black CHDHX-401 Black 12 MP Action Camera - CHDHX-401

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 GoPro HERO4 Black always freezing
Pros: none
Cons: The camera freezes while 1-2 minutes into taking a video. I had never one complete video, except for short tests. GoPro does not stand behind their product, support is not helping, GoPro does not repair their cameras. Support first blamed on firmware and "unsupported" microSD card, updated to latest firmware and purchased "supported" microSD card - that did not solve the issue. Tried with a few different cards, same result.
Other Thoughts: Beware, your $400+ investment in GoPro products is not protected by anything. Cheap assembly quality and substandard electronic parts. Very much disappointed. Would never buy GoPro again.

Categories > Sports & Action Camcorders > Monster Digital > Monster Digital Villain Action Camera - 1080p 30fps HD Video with 32GB micro SD and 16 Accessories [CAMVA-1080p]

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Great Little Camera
Pros: Easy to Use. 1080p video. Comes with all the mounts you could ever need. I use it for recording my motorcycle rides.
Cons: Battery Life. You can get an hour to an hour and a half MAX. This would have gotten 5 stars if it would go for 3 hours.
Other Thoughts: I had to download the Old app, SYMAGIX. 2 doesn't work.
