    Good job! Swann Freestyle HD - New Sports Cam

    Looks like we have a new HD cam to choose from.

    Swann Freestyle HD

    • 1080p/30
    • 720p/60
    • 8mp
    • VOX (voice activated recording )
    • Stereo
    • 1.5" LCD
    • Flat front optics (underwater ready )
    • Remote Control
    • Laser
    • microSD
    • MSRP $280 ($240 on Amazon)


    From the basic looks and specs this looks like a GoPro copy with a redesigned chassis. If the video quality is equal to the GoPro then this will be the best bang for your buck!




    UPDATE: After further searching, I really believe Swann bought the rights and made its own changes while actually using the GoPro guts. Or possibly GoPro is making these for Swann to their specs.

    Highly doubt this is built by GoPro, more likely it was a ripoff from a small Chinese manufacturer, or something Swann rebranded.

    Here it is on DealExtreme

    Is there a chest mount available for this? That feature is the sole reason why the gopro style cameras are great for MTB.

    Now, I am selling my GoPro HD helmet and Contour HD, both New in box. I indeed bought the three to try but decided to keep the Swann action cam.
    Cheers!

    I am sorry I am new on that forum and thus cannot post any links. Do a search for hydrocynus and Swann camera. PM if you want the link.
    Do the GoPro vented helmet strap mount, the head mount, and chest mounts work on the Freestyle? It sure looks like it. I want keep the Freestyle but need at minimum vented helmet strap mount. Thanks for any help you can give.

    With all due respect I was just stating what I feel.

    You're brand new to the forum. You have four posts all based on this topic alone. You're touting the Swann product and saying you're selling the only other two products that really compete.

    You'll have to excuse the challenge but it all seems a little scripted.
