Swann SWVID-SPORTM-GL Final Thoughts

"This is a great combo."

But the quality difference gets lost in the fine print. It’s a bit on the heavy side but that’s not a deal breaker. Here's a few underwater pictures from my trip! It also has a bigger battery than the other cameras I've tried. Great camera, resolution, back screen, wrist controller!

"First off the quality."

This is enough for most use cases! My friends are impressed by my work with this Swann Action Camera. But for action/close filming/pictures-can't beat it. Hope future firmware can change it to a long press. But the misrepresentation of the angle will cost a star.
