Im pissed actually. I ordered it from them and selected priority mail which is 2-5 days on average via usps. Instead they set me up for ground shipping via ups which is more than 10 days. That was a clear lie on their shipping policies. I have already contacted them. If they didnt have priority then DO NOT MAKE IT AVAILABLE so i can order one that will get my camera to me faster.
Same thing here. After thinking about it though with the Holiday on Monday USPS will probably be more backed up then UPS so at this price I don't care anymore.
Yeah, thing is, this is $210 and is usable right out of the box for that price. The Sony, by the time you actually buy the mounts, the waterproof case, etc, you're probably a lot closer to $300 than $200. And then there is the reality that that has a fixed lens at 170 degrees; the GoPro can be altered between 90/130/170, which means you can also use it for normal video shooting in a pinch. Plus, the GoPro can give me 11mp still images for timelapses...the Sony can basically give me video captures at 2mp (1920x1080). The Sony is basically less versatile in every way except being 120fps
Besides, its not like the GoPro is heavy or bulky; its hard to make a camera any smaller really
oh, when i read the press release / ad for the sony i though it came with the waterproof case and a mount. my biggest irritant was lack of viewfinder (dont have a cellphone). :o dang hrm... hope gopro hero 3 comes out soon with hd 120fps... i don't think 120fps is necessary, but it does seem like a nice spec/option to discern products upon.
That Sony Action cam is available for pre-order on Amazon. Two models, HDR-AS10 and HDR-AS15. Only difference I see between them is that the AS15 has Wi-Fi enabled. Costs $268, the AS10 costs $198, both prime eligible and the only mount I see included is a universal tripod mount.
So far i'm loving it. i got the outdoor edition.. my goal was to use it for my motorcycle but i just put one of the curve mounts on my helmet.. still thinking about buying the suction cup, but i've been hearing mix reviews on it with some people having it fall off during a ride and some say its sturdy.
in the end.. i am glad i bought it.. been looking for once since i got my bike! can't wait to start shooting on my rides up Mt Lemmon in Tucson AZ =0D
