RedKorn is more experienced with it than I am, but I can provide some tips.


Make sure to use a waterproof back cover, if there is even slight possibility of any salt water getting on the camera housing. It will keep salt water away, but also the surrounding sounds will be hard to record.

Other tip is use of a polarizing filter. So if you are going to do filming in bright sun a lot it might save the camera and provide a better shot. About $10.00 on Ebay.

When transferring files to YouTube, do it overnight. A ten minute recording took me almost three hours.
If I left the page, it would get cancelled and had to start all over.

Best wishes for your Bday, and share some of your experiences with us.

Well this is what you need to do before taking it out on an adventure....

1-Good cleaning kit for it and its case!

2-testing the case! without the camera.

3-SD cards make sure there all class 10


4-Make sure you computer is buff enough to handle hd.

What about setting? Just for normal camera use. The highest at 1080pout I believe it is? And when uploaded do you convert?

Yes I was forced to convert the MP4 but I just got a media desktop and updated windows movie maker does it for me.

If you dont have a hd screen or graphics card it will be hard to edit. Hard to upload...

I use setting 1-4 awsome....does take good pics at night but no good for video night time shooting.
