"It’s a total winner!"

This is my first action camera, and so far I'm satisfied. It’s a bit on the heavy side but that’s not a deal breaker. It is small and takes awesome pictures! I was worried that it could be difficult to frame the shots. Just take out the micro-SDHC card and plug it into a reader.
