About the camera it's just tiny and perfect to use, it's only 14 dollars i think and the quality which is 420p is more than acceptable for the price, and lots of accesories come that are perfect.

ABOUT THE WEB

Also, how many frames per second does it record in?

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

I've made over a hundred posts? How did this happen?

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.
