Ultra Mini Waterproof Digital Video Camera (GS)
Jeff Reed BSAC National Diving Officer says:
It has real practical value in recording students exercises during instruction (subject to agreement!) as well as for recording try-dive sessions and actual dives.
The quality of the image is surprising good given it is only available in basic mpeg4 format and for the money I was pleasantly surprised by its ability to auto focus quickly, its size, battery life and charging period of 2 hours is incredible for what it is, i.e. the size of a memory stick.
If you had asked me would I buy it before testing – I would have looked at it as more of a gimmick. Having used it, I can visualise its real potential and provides for constructive feedback to students or for recording examination dives and gives me the opportunity to review (not rely totally on my fading memory to what happened) in addition to providing useful data for personal diving without being intrusive or a distraction. For those wishing for higher quality data then a video recorder/camera is required, but for those who just want to have a memory of their dive to show friends and family afterwards with little to no effort then this simple gadget fulfils this requirement – it will take practice to slow down moments, for example; moving your head to look at your SPG.
The editing suit is basic but again allows for quick editing and ability to post video to Facebook, Youtube, etc., quickly and efficiently.
