  • One of the most useful features is the quick capture function, which allows the camera to switch on…

Users Report a Good Quality Lens

Five people who reviewed it thought it had a good lens.

  • Wide angle lens is superb for mountain biking or any other adventurous sports…
    GG93 (Argos.co.uk) - February 2016
  • The picture quality is amazing and with a great wide angle lens it will capture as much as you can see with your eyes They do get a little affected by wind noise if you go over around 25/30 mph.
  • Make sure you buy the tempered glass to make the lens cover much more durable…
  • There is no indication which side is the lens, if you are trying to mount it in the frame, that is already attached, you have to be sure the lens is facing front…
  • None of the old focusing problems…
    CJE (Amazon) - July 2015
  • Final thoughts is that the session looks very smart, is simple to turn on and off, has useful lights and beeps, has a smart coloured lens accessory.
    Widz (Amazon.co.uk) - January 2016
  • • Superb build quality with good grip on the body and decent glass covering the lens…
  • The unit itself is well made and easy to use if you just use the out of the box settings, lack of a lens cap seems to be a bit of an omission considering the cost that has gone into the box…
