I chose this model, not just because it was the cheapest but because it really does everything I need from a video camera. I simply don't need the 4K video if all I'm doing is some basic videos for YouTube. The neat thing about it is that I can use my current remote (or phone) to drive it. Anyway, four days after ordering it the camera arrived from Singapore - impressive.
There are some subtle differences between it and my old one:
Of course, when you get a new toy then you simply must play with it, so today I went for a wee pootle around the Apiti Loop. A nice little ride on a pretty damn nice autumn day. The video below has a few snippets from some of the best bits of the Loop:
There doesn't appear to be too much wrong with the video although it seems to pick up some "noise"from the bike at around 5k rpm - I've had that with other devices as well. As for the sound quality, well I think it's better than the previous GoPro and you can hear the bike pretty nicely. Oh, and it also takes pictures of course.
So it works - and hopefully it'll last me a fair while...
