Good price, nice photo resolution, lousy video capThe good:
- Photos are good quality
- Versatile mounts
- iOS software not the greatest but allows you to download pictures/videos taken over to your smart phone. Software UI not so intuitive or easy to use/understand but at least you have the option to export the pics over and if needed post to social media. Removing/taking the memory card is very hard, so exporting to iOS is very convenient.
The Not so good:
- Price dropped from 129.99 to 99.99 in 7 days, no discount/price match credit back.
- had issues inserting the micro SD card into the camara slot. I actually have to use tweezers or ball point pen tip to "click" the micro memory card. If the card is not properly inserted, the camara does not start up.
- Battery lasts 1.5 hours if used a lot. Need spare battery.
Annoying: video capturing
- When you first turn the camera on, it start recording video immediately. You need to remember to press the OK button to stop it from recording after turning it ON. Manufacturer should set the default MODE to photo when the device is first turned on and let the user choose to change it to video.
Overall, if you are looking for a easy to use, light, water proof camera versus price, this can be a good option, if not you can buy a similar type of camera in your tourist destination for the same price. i.e Dominican Republic.

Design flaw in the camera bracket system"My main purpose for an action camera was to record rides on my mountain bike.
I first purchased the SAFARI WIFI HIGH DEFINITION POV CAMERA. I believe this was a unit that someone else returned because although all the components were there they were not packaged in individual bags but just tossed in the box. The camera seemed to work well out of the box but when I attempted to mount the camera on my bike by using the waterproof housing and the bike mount I found one of the mounting brackets on the waterproof housing was broken. I returned the product to Henrys Camera without a problem and decided to upgrade to the Safari 3 4K model. Again, it seemed to work well out of the box but when I attempted to mount the camera on my handlebars by connecting the waterproof housing to the bike mount I could not get the mounting bolt holes to correspond with the holes on the waterproof housing. The holes do not align and I felt that if I applied too much force the plastic on the bike mount or the waterproof housing would break. Which is probably why the first unit I purchased had a broken waterproof housing bracket.
After close inspection I determined that I could solve the problem by grinding the outer edges of the brackets on either the housing bracket or bike mount or both. I decided not to do so as it would void any warranty on the unit. The solution I discovered was to install one of the extension brackets that came with the unit. That installed quite easily but I then had to install another extension bracket to acquire the proper angle of the camera on the handle bars. All bolts were as tight as they could be without using tools. The brackets moved easily without much force being applied and would most definitely not stay in place during a mountain bike ride. I believe that the bolt on these brackets were too long and therefore would not tighten enough. I considered grinding the bolts to make them shorter but that too would void the warranty on the unit. I again returned the unit to Henrys Camera demonstrated the problem to the sales associate and was given a full refund.
I believe there is a design flaw in all the bike mounting brackets of this unit that could easily be rectified at the manufacturing level. I would be interested in purchasing again if the implemented the proper fix but until then I am shopping for an action can to mount on my bike."
