Bought the camera today, before reading your post and checked out the review you mentioned. He didn't call it a 'piece of crap' anywhere in his review but did mentioned his preferences for a different camera.bingunna wrote:You should have read all the posts techmoan did a review on the BigW camera and it's a piece of crap save your money or you will be disappointed.Plakkyboat wrote: I'm buying the Big W waterproof action camera today for $98.
I would have bought the one you own but with a remote added for to the camera for that price at a local shop, I decided it was a bargain worth checking out.
Most of the features he didn't like, aren't a concern to me except the audio quality, the lens quality and general video quality, keeping in mind that it is a cheap video camera with a remote. The remote makes it special for kayaking, if that part works as expected.
I will test for those features and if they are an issue, I'll return it to Big W before the 7 day cooling period is up. Consumer rights are a bonus especially with stores that honour those rights.
Anyway, thanks for the heads up even if it was a bit afterwards.
