Like many action cameras, the box is entire of extras. In addition to the digital camera and water resistant case, there is a wristband with distant regulate buttons, two batteries and a battery charger, a USB cable and a bag entire of GoPro-compatible mounts for helmet, bikes, and a assortment of other mounts to web page almost wherever.

The digital camera by itself — even without the need of the battery fitted — is well designed and heavy at 192g in its water resistant housing or 108g on its personal. On the top there are two buttons: one to take photographs, and a method button. The user guide is simplistic, with a QR code for the user to download the user guide.

The battery doorway was tricky to open (thrust the button in the bottom and slide the doorway) offering me numerous minutes of annoyance just before I labored it out.

At the time the digital camera is switched on, the controls are effortless to configure. The batteries final for around two several hours if recording at low resolution, and about one hour for every battery at 4k/two.7k.

You do want to insert your personal micro SD card up to 64GB in dimension — this is not supplied with the digital camera.
