    To be fair I have seen better action camera in terms of picture quality than all of the gopros for a fraction of the price. I cant remember the name of it but it was torch like. However, the holder was the let-down as it was very shaky in bumpy situations ruining the detail. It would be interesting to see a comparison side by side of these cameras alongside the gopros to see how it compares.

    Spotted these last night - surely there is some sort of copyright / trademark infringement on these? Has O/C looked into it - they look so similar to a GoPro, even the attachment on the action cam is identical thumb bolt arrangement! - If I was GoPro I would be creating a lawsuit right now!

    Anyway I found a good side by side comparison of the 5S and GoPro Black :)



    Horses for courses really - I think the GoPro swings it with better image stabilisation and deals with poor light conditions much much better than the Rollei.

    BTW I own a oldish GoPro 960 which still delivers great quality 720p recordings for my needs :)

    I did some test footage, but between my dodgy mount and my lack of knowledge on rendering settings, it wouldn't have done the cam justice.

    I'll give it another go when I have time.

    This is better than both sub £100 cameras sold here.

    Will these fit the GoPro mounts? I'm thinking of getting the chest mount for cycling.

    EDIT: I'm sure I read that they do, but can't seem to find it again.

    If anyone's wandering, these will fit the GoPro accessories. I ordered a cheapy chest mount and it fits fine.
