For what it is, it's not bad. Reviews on DX seem to support that conclusion.

They are devices which change variations in one medium to changes in another.

For instance, a microphone is a transducer which changes air pressure variations into electric current variations.

PS: it has a framerate of 25-30 fps 420p (for the price it's alright and i have used it on skateboarding and preaty clear frames for the price)

So basically they're saying there's a camera in the camera. Good to know.

Its ok for the price, but you need a decent quality micro sd card. I bought one earlier this summer and was having trouble with crapppy cards, then i bought a class 4 micro and it seemed to be less choppy. i think it works better as a follow cam on a stabilizer. just my opinion.

This, it would be useful if you were hitting a street feature or a single feature with a bunch of riders and could set it up in a stationary location, but otherwise the moving quality sucks.
