I have the urlhasbeenblocked ex5000. Not sure the difference besides the 12 vs 14 megapixel. It takes 1080p video at 30fps and 720p at 30fps or 60fps. As far as value for your $35 it's definitely a worthwhile purchase for the camera and it's waterproof case alone. Recently took it snorkeling and the videos came out great. Can't imagine the GoPro quality being worth the price difference. There's a reason why the GoPro stock shot down from its high point, these knockoff cameras are just as good video quality wise, the only thing that isn't as great is the phone app integration which is almost useless besides using it as an electronic viewfinder. Hope that helps!
it's great for the price if you're an average user making home movies, anything else and you're better off using your cell phone camera.

there's an obvious lack of technical specifications on the amazon page because none of these cheap cameras actually have 1080p sensors, it's all upconverted from lower resolutions; these companies ALWAYS skimp on the mic, too. you're also going to see worse color quality, motion blur, and bad stabilization (if any).

and the yi 4k is the best action cam i've owned thus far. it easily beats the gopro in value, and picture quality is arguably better.

Ok , here is an honest review.

I have had a gopro 3 a real SJCAM 4000 and this DB power one.

this depends on your usage. If you a action junkie that will use this all the time under extreme circumstances, then anything might break

However if your like me that will use it in the pool every now and then, take it on vacation, for use while filming European cities attached to my belt or for scuba diving/snorkeling (novice stuff ) then its great for that too. Or attaching to your mountain bike for some trails and stuff. Then its great for that too

Remember this does not have image stabilization, so video will be bouncy. Pics are ok, but video is nice, its 1080 and clear colors are a bit cool, when compared to the other cameras, but it still looks good.

Things to remember, this can be used as a dashcam, it can rotate image depending on how it held, it has record erase intervals for that .

it does have setting such as white balance levels and things like that

it does and time lapse setting

you can easily get 1080p 1 hour recording on a single battery.

the mic works fine, but remember when in the waterproof case its very very muffled, waves will sound loud people can hardly be heard, (case also has a clear back case with hole when not using in water, so you can hear sound recorded this way) No way to hook up external mic

Comes with many accessories in the box, and will use any gopro accessories as they are compatible.

things to remember, be very careful when pluging/unluggin the micro usb as people report that it fall into the camera case, this hasn't happened to me as i'm always very gentle doing that, i knew this when bought it so its been fine for me.

Also, once you add settings such as date when you pull the battery out of it it will reset the date, however if you leave the battery in it and charge it through the camera it will not reset it. kind of annoying, but what di you want for $36 bucks

in the end its $36 bucks and in my opinion worth every penny. and its amazon, you can return it if your not happy.

Very tempting, does anyone actually has the camera and can give a short review based on price/quality vs the GoPro 3?

How does this compare to the name brand knock-off (Yi)? Edit: looks like it's made or licensed by SJCAM whose equivalent model runs $70-80.

I would also like to know about dash cam possibilities with this. I'm currently using a smart phone, but manually launching the app gets annoying.

The one I have, the urlhasbeenblocked ex5000 can be used as a dash cam and has a special recording setting for it. The setting allows it to automatically cut the video files at 3 minutes length for easier management of the videos if you ever need to view them.

These things are pretty sweet. Took mine scuba diving (30m deepest) in Hawaii and turned out great. Was the 14mp one tho, but pretty surprised at the quality of this unknown knockoff company. Yeah, the camera itself has a cheap feel but it works, has a usable (and surprisingly intuitive) interface, and takes quality-enough shots.

I read a bunch of Amazon reviews and it is great as a dashcam. The only information missing is how the videos are at night. Do you have any input?

I don't remember coming across a night vision setting so I'm thinking it won't be useable for recording as a dash cam in the dark
