I have had this recorder for 3 years and I have never had any problem with it. I added a 16gb card and it will record for hours. Not sure why everyone else as had problems...user error?
Bought new Feb 2014. Has never worked (recorded) for more than a few seconds at a time. Charge every night all night and it still goes off after a few seconds on it's own. I see many others are having the same problem. Do not buy this product!!
I really had high hopes for this one. Field of view is way to narrow which makes it difficult to use if you don't wear a traditional uniform. The video is nice, but just a few weeks in, I can't get it to record for more than a few seconds. I haven't been able to capture a still photo with it since I got it. I can't recommend this product to anyone based on these and other problems.
This is my second camera and both clips broke. Cheaply made clips.
Real nice piece of equipment. Comes in handy.
I bought this camera 4 months ago for allot more $ and now the software to transfer video to laptop is corrupt and wont transfer. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
Wife ordered this last xmas, from galls. Received an (clearly) used package and a broken recorder. Don't waste the time or money..
Quality of camera is very good, both audio and video. Camera powers off at will though. Clip falls off shirt even at a brisk walk or going up steps. The third time it fell off it broke. Useless.
I thought this would work for me and I really tried. The field of view is far too narrow to be of any use and activating the camera is a real pain in the rear. Half the time it doesn't turn on when you want it to.
After multiple attempts to get this to work we discovered it is not compatible with commonly-used 64-bit computer operating systems. If I had know that I wouldn't have wasted my agencie's money.
lost my DVD and tryed to down load it from their web site, would not let me.
comes back demail failure
no phone number listed
going to have to buy one down load and return it
sad sad sad!
Second one I have owned from Scorpion. The first one was great. Well made, worked properly, dependable. The second one works properly has minor issues but, the clip, and housing are cheap and fall apart. The pin falls out of the clip because there is nothing to hold it in place. If not paying attention when the pin falls out it becomes a good paper weight. Obviously they found a cheaper manufacturer. Fix that problem it is worth having.
Ordered this device in high hopes, however, (1) the camera view is limited, (2) does not work well indoors (video is very dark), and (3), battery is horrible...I have to charge it every other day, even if I never turned it on. Get a different brand device or a GOCam or something, not this... NOT RELIABLE
I bought this on sale and thought I got a good deal. The instructions were almost useless, so looked online and found someone's instructions from trial and error which helped. Finally got it working using a 2GB memory card, however after a couple months of use the plastic clip broke (no, it was never dropped). Cheap plastic; plus had problems from the outset with the metal pin sliding out. No detents to hold it in place. Now the video refuses to record past a few seconds of use. I've recharged the battery fully, deleted files, reformatted memory card, and even used a secondary memory card. Since it's out of warranty I've just chalked it up to a total loss. Would not recommend purchase.
On 9/14/11 , I purchased this recoder and it was everything I wanted and expected in a " Micro DV Recorder " with Gore-tex speedfreak boot , Just wish the Barrel Bag was available then , We could definately use it with other surveillance equipment .
I found it somewhat time consuming that in able to initiate the video recording, you had to press the top button once and wait about 2-3 seconds later until the blue led light came on and press the record button once more to start the recording. Wish it was just a one click and record type of deal. The clip hasn't broken on me yet, but would really like to see the clip designer work on a more angle adjustable, durable clip due to the camera either pointing to high or to low while having it secured on the uniform pocket. Other than that, the device itself is awesome. Couldn't ask for a better video and audio recording device for a patrol officer.
Bought this with high expectations. Opened it and read "instructions" completely lost. Maybe I am just stupid or something but they were without a doubt the worst set of directions I have ever tried to use. Don't want to bad mouth the product just the directions. I'll wait for the PD to buy something more user friendly.
It works ok until the clip broke, a new one cost 6.00 which is not bad but that want to rip you off by charging you 12.00 for shipping which can be shipped for maybe 1.00
We use all the time, bought on sale and can't ask for much more than that. Use this on fire police calls and just sent it in on fire training. Unit did very well until it fell out of holder. Fire fighter went back in and found on floor still recording. Cant believe the sound and picture for the price.
We purchased one of these video cameras and it works in really well holding it and walking around a pointing it at what ever you want. But when hooked to the vest, shirt or where ever. Not so much. It is either pointing at the ground or the sky. The officer I gave it to had his wife sew a elastic band on his uniform shirt and it slid down into the pouch. We did this becase the clip that come with the unit broke not once but 2 times. I would not purchase this item until they work some of the bugs out.
Nice, sturdy, got weight to it but cannot use with a mac computer . if it was compatible with mac I would have kept it plus battery only two hrs most people who are going to use this need more than two hrs.
Small, inexpensive, what more could you ask for?
