I have had plenty of first hand experience with the camera. Editing could be a pain on a PC because video is in an MOV format. It's MAC friendly, but not Windows Movie Maker friendly. You will need to convert the video files to AVI or MPEG4 if you would like to edit using the Windows Movie Maker.
As a free app i would recommend Handbrake. It's really easy to use, and relatively quick.
As for the camera itself, it is super easy to use. I can't stress enough at how easy to use it is. There is a Stop, and Rec switch. you flip the switch, it starts. then you get a vibration telling you that recording has started, it's sufficient vibration for you to feel when on the handle bars or a helmet. So you don't have to guess or wonder if the camera is recording or not. when recording stops, it vibrates again to let you know.
Regarding the FOV, the camera will record 120º in 1080p and 170º in 720p, both at 30fps. I find 30FPS to be sufficient, as most of the video i shoot will go to Youtube, which converts everything to 30fps anyways.
I have posted a few videos of footage, you might notice that i posted a few before the camera was released to the public, that is because i do work for Monoprice, and i gave some feedback on how to improve the unit. I've taken many of these units to different types of events and conditions, and they have held up very well.
This was shot with the camera hung upside down, and attached to the windshield with the suction cup mount that is sold separately. I used Handbrake to convert the footage, and then Windows Movie maker to Cut the video.
This was with the camera facing right side up and the suction cup attached to the hardtop of the car.
This last video is with the camera mounted onto the side of my helmet with the helmet mount, and the 90º elbow that is included. I used the 3M Sticky tape to attach it.
Now i'm giving you this feedback as a consumer, not as a sales person, i understand there are flaws with the audio quality, and to explain, it has to do with the cameras underwater capabilities. Since we do not require an external case on order to use the camera in a wet environment, we had to adjust the sensitivity of the mic to work properly in a completely sealed environment. Considering the capabilities, we were content with the results, because we liked the simplicity. We are looking to improve the overall quality of the audio, but that won't be until we reach some other revisions (just like how go pro and contour have had newer better models over time.). We didn't see this as being too much of an issue, as 90% of action footage is dubbed over with music of some sort.
Personally, i really like this product, and i have no problem recommending it to friends and family. I completely understand there is a need to have really high end units like the Go-Pros and the Contours, but we want the casual user to have that same experience without having to drop big dollars. To some people just getting the footage is more important than the frame rate and the audio quality. If you think you are one of those people, and want a device that is super simple to use, i would have to recommend this unit.
