Items included in package
V3 Package is very extensive and contains many mounting accessories for various camera applications, according to user needs. The Product itself is intended to work as a sports Activity camera. You can mount it on a helmet or bicycle or dive with it in depths up to 30M. Because we are talking about a multi functional camera, and not only for sports It can also be used as a front Car DVR Camera to record / monitor what’s going on on the road head or uses it as a mini stills camera with a special mounting belt accessory, that is also included in the V3 package.
Design & Quality
From my checks, both quality and design are good. This is maybe the first camera I managed to open the battery closure and get the battery unit out and assemble it back, without a need to inserting it with excessive force. Some manufacturers tend to design the battery housing dimensions very, very tight, what causes the battery to pass most of the heat to the camera body. With this product I didn’t have this issue.

According to the spec sheet by manufacturer Camera uses a OV4689 4.0MP CMOS Sensor with software Interpolated up to 16MP resolution. In Optimal light conditions camera records good quality videos, but In low light condition still photos came out grainy and blurred.
Video Performance – (Test Condition: Sunny Day / Walk)
On my video recording tests, video quality was pretty good producing a relative sharp picture.
