Judging by the comments I get there are lot of people who are reluctant to import products from Chinese ebay retailers. I understand a certain level of apprehension, but on the whole I've had very few problems, and often if you are willing to import you will get the best deal. Unfortunately my complacency is the reason that I ended up getting caught out this time. I was looking for the cheapest option - had a number of auctions open in different windows and ended up choosing poorly.
I've put the video together anyway to as a reminder to be cautious and avoid rogue devices that masquerade as better ones.
There will be a new video along as soon as possible (hopefully in about 10 days) where I'll be reviewing two alternatives to this camera with a very similar form-factor. These cameras are being sold in the UK at prices that are equivalent to the HK ebayers, but with the added reassurance that there will be no unexpected import duty or taxes to pay. They are also much, much better.
