Bought one of these and am pretty impressed. super light weight and has all the same mounting hardware as the gopro. Has an lcd color screen to see what your pointed at before you film and for reviewing what you've filmed. One word of caution though. DO NOT USE ANY SD CARD OTHER THAN A CLASS 4 OR 5. If you use any higher class sd card the camera will malfunction when it is hooked up to the computer when attempting to review or transfer.

From the help if you click "Received Deal?"

Find out which Big Lots received this deal

Due to the nature of our business, Buyouts, Closeouts and Special Buys, items are limited to stock on hand and an item's availability cannot be guaranteed. Please check with the store for availability. Sorry, no rainchecks."
So appears to mean that the store received stock but there's no real-time inventory status so it's hit or miss.

For 40 bucks, this thing is amazing. Takes great video and has good sound quality, a little quiet when far away, but when up close it's really crisp.

The reviews say it takes horrible pictures though.
Is this correct?

Correct, I would rather use my cell phone for that AND normal videos

This thing is fun because i've taken it underwater and i can put it on a stick and run through the woods like an idiot Wink
