The lens gives a slightly fish-eye, nevertheless cool, angle on the action. Audio recording isn’t anything special, but captures plenty of rushes, splashes and voice – a bundled, non-waterproof back-plate allows extra sound in. Squeaks and scrapes can be a little intrusive, with the camera pivot especially volatile. Overall, sound capture performs best when the unit is fully fixed.

Delivers a unique perspective but a tad pricey
