As you can probably tell, I like it a lot. It's not perfect yet but it's got a lot of potential and the basics are there - it has a good lens with lens correction built in so pictures and video don't have to look fish-eye unless you choose that. I really like the more streamlined shape and the fact that you don't need another box around it unless you're going underwater with it. The accessories seem to be made of much better plastic than the GoPro stuff which I seem to break with great regularity.

The video display, WiFi, gps, accelerometer, and other features are icing on the cake.

But the iPhone app mentioned in the box and literature is not out yet. Garmin says it's gonna be "real soon now" and I have no reason to doubt that. Because I can use the 78S or the Montana as remote controls, I'm happy with that for the time being.

Here's another video I shot at night.



I have more videos and a thread on the camera here.
