What SD CARD should I buy?

If you want an SD Card for your camera - these are the ones I use and recommend. 

I'd strongly recommend not to buy any SD cards off ebay - I've heard about and experienced too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. 

NOTE - Some cameras work more reliably with Class 6 Cards as a Maximum (The Mini 0801 is an example).

VERY IMPORTANT. These links go to the product, but not necessarily to the Amazon Direct supplier. I recommend selecting from Amazon themselves not the reseller storefronts..even if it costs a bit more.

Two short and largely irrelevant videos. 

I've uploaded a couple of quick videos in the last few days.

The first is a suggestion for a cheap case that fits the new iPad.
Since I made the video it's been discovered that the reason that auto-wake cases that were designed for the iPad 2 don't wake the new iPad is because the polarity of the magnets inside the new iPad have been reversed. This change to the design was done as smart covers could put the iPad 2 back to sleep if they were folded back underneath the iPad. 

The second video is a look at the accessory kit for the RD32II camera (it also fits some other Redleaf RD camera models). The RD32II is a great camera, but the one thing it needed was some way to attach it to helmets...well this kit is the solution to that problem. It took me quite some time to figure out how the belt attachment worked...so hopefully if you do buy this kit, this video will save you some time.

Thanks for the review of this accessory kit. I've been following the RD3211 since you reviewed it and was somewhat reluctant to buy it since your orignial review only showed it with just a bicycle mount. I want to use the camera for skiing and kayaking, so was somewhat disappointed with the lack of suitable attachments. Since seeing this review, i've bought the camera and 3 sets of accessories. You might think that this is overkill, but at just £11 for the kit, I wanted to make sure that I had enough mounts to suit my purposes, namely enough adhesive mounts for helmets/kayaks etc. The camera's just as you reviewed it (very good) and the accesory kit likewise. Thanks mate. Keep up the good reviews!! Btw, I enjoy every video review, particularly trying to work out which part of the Chorley & District you're travelling through!

@Rob I don't think it's overkill at all. I bought two sets myself and destroyed one of the rubber bands whilst making the video, just trying to figure out how it was supposed to fit together (of course I carefully edited things to make it look like I knew what I was doing). So when your sets arrive, make sure you attach the strap in the way I demonstrated, to avoid getting one stuck in the buckle device, like I did.
I'm hoping to get another motorcycle soon, so might leave one of the adhesive blocks attached to my helmet too.

Hi Techmoan,
Thanks for this review (and the other ;-). My RD32II arrived today from HongKong, ordered it after a long search for a cheap but good cam for outdoor sports and motorcycle riding. After watching your review of it my decision was easy and my first impression of it doesn't disappoint :-)
I'm sure this review will also safe me some headaches as I just ordered the mount kit, hope it arrives before my holidays in Germany next month. Keep up the good work, I'm sure many people enjoy it.
Cheers, Esteban.

@Esteban, many thanks. I still haven't found a camera that offers better value for money than the RD32II......but if I ever do, I'll try and get one in to review.

Thanks for the detailed interesting reviews. The RD3211 will be ideal for my use but is it possible to buy and fit a replacement inbuilt battery when the factory unit dies?
No luck with DX can you suggest another source?

Thanks
Peter

No luck with DX because of the search engine can you suggest another source?

Thanks

I don't think you can get a replacement battery for the RD32ii.
