    I purchased this for an upcoming tropical vacation but wanted to take it for a test ride first. We took it to the beach and submerged it in tide pools and the nearby river. We took still photos and video.

    The camera is easy to use. My struggle was all human error trying to get used to the correct buttons. I have video when I thought I’d be taking still shots. My fault… The kids on the other hand were zipping through all the features without issue.

    The pictures in and out of the water turned out well. The audio was a little ruff when I submerged the camera for video in the river. There’s a current so that was expected. The pictures were great in the river even though there was a little sediment in the water.

    I installed the app and it was super easy to use on my cell phone.

    My only issue with the accessories provided is that it would be nice to have something with a hand strap so when it’s used in the water it could be connected to your wrist. As we tested at the beach it was a bit awkward with the accessories it came with.

    Overall a good camera for the price.

    Fun little camera and a great deal. The menu and buttons are a little quirky and take some time to figure out but you get the hang of it. Lots of accessories add many possibilities. I look forward to the summer and using it more outdoors.

    I’d say the camera itself get 3.5/5, but the insanely low cost gets it bonus points. There are some great things this camera can do and, considering it’s the exact size of a GoPro, you can use a slew of attachments without having to worry about where they’re coming from. People have talked about the positives here so I wanted to point out a few common-sense problems that don’t have easily accessed solutions on Google.

    If we check the prize and the specs, I think it is a crazy crazy prize. Very good for Mgcool.

  • Julio Pedregosa

    This type of guide is very very useful. Thanks for sharing.

    It is the first time I have heard about this Sony Sensor. Has it enough quality?.

  • Jonathan dos Santos

    Has it APP for control since smartphone? It would be very useful for users.

  • Armando Jaleo

    I have tried it and I can confirm the device is really good noticing the prize.

    The specifications are impressive and it looks like mgcool has put thought into the complection as well, but I’d like to hear some reviews from regular users, is this camera worth the money and is the video and image quality good?

    I’d give it a 7 our of 10 if possible. It’s a good camera but I bought it for the helmet mount to attach while snowboarding. Unfortunately, there are NO flat areas on my helmet and none of the mounts are flexible. Speaking of which, the mounts pictured in the booklet aren’t necessarily what came with my camera.

    The camera itself works fine so far and the waterproof mount appears to actually keep the insides dry. At least it did during a test in my sink.

    looks cheap to be honest, I wouldn’t get my hopes up for a camera to be good at this price range, just another Chinese mass produced poor quality camera… wouldn’t recommend anyone getting any of the cameras from this company
