Default $50 video camera from the Post Office

Suppose you could call this a review of the Mi Snapz a $50 from the local post office (thanks Sam)

Camera comes with camera, waterproof case, helmet mount, handle bar mount and a couple of cables. The camera is about the size of a matchbox.

Requires a micro SD card to record onto.

There are a couple of different modes, recording in 640 and 720 modes, as well as stills.

Handy feature, shows how long you have in recording time in each mode/shots left.

Charging is via mini usb to a PC, or you can also plug it into your phone wall charger.

Mounting would probably be a weak point, the camera case slides back into the connection, and makes a click when in, its the removal, squeeze two tabs to release, not sure how long they'll last, but probably not to hard to cut up a old gopro case and glue the mounting system to it.

I used it at the SES hill climb on Saturday for 4 runs, about 10 mins of recording on each run, battery is still good. The low res video was meh. The "hi" res is fair, bit like a phone video of a few years back.

Likely uses, spots where the camera may be in some jeopardy, Its small and light, double sided tape and a safety cable tie would see it mounted almost anywhere. Not sure of low light performance, and that will be next, do expect much.

Vid below is the only fully dry run I had on street tyres (tyre squeal), camera mounted on front spoiler below number plate, and the youtube quality is much worse than the actual vid

nice, for $50 you can't really go wrong with this. Does it look/ feel durable?

Camera, yes, mount fair, time will tell, but fairly easy to graft another type on if your handy with a file, super glue etc.

Why would you need to hide it to film yourself masturbating?

Seems good for $50! Break it, get another! I'm far too worried about putting my Go-Pro outside, but that would be great.
