I prefer to buy the products I review because it makes things a lot less awkward if the item turns out to be a poor performer. The 'thanks for sending me your product, but I had to tell everyone not to buy it' is not a fun email to send.
However on occasion when I've had a good experience with the previous models in a range, I'll accept a sample of an upgraded version because it means that I get the chance to review something I would have otherwise passed over for financial reasons.
So when both SJCAM and Dazzne contacted me a couple of months ago and offered to send over the 'Plus' versions of cameras that I rate highly, I gladly accepted.
The SJCAM M10+ and the Dazzne P2+ arrived on the same day. This was unfortunate timing as my camera reviews usually take three to four weeks to put together, and I knew that neither manufacturer would be happy to wait two months to see their camera demonstrated on YouTube. I therefore decided to shoot both reviews at the same time, as things progressed I realised the cameras shared a lot in common and the two seperate reviews were merged into the comparison video that you can view below.
Sample video clips and photos from both cameras can be downloaded from pcloud.
The SJCAM M10 can be purchased from eBay (click to see the latest price) and is also available on Amazon US or Amazon UK.
The official manufacturer website is SJCAMHD.COM
The Dazzne P2 Plus can be found on Amazon US and Amazon UK and here's an ebay search.
A word of advice, if the waterproof case is important to you, please check with the seller whether they are supplying the updated version I demonstrated in the video. The older version of the waterproof case didn't allow access to all three buttons on the side of the camera.
I've yet to find any places selling the Dazzne P2+ in volume, but when I do I'll put the links here. In the meantime you can always do your own searches on eBay.
