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 too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. My inbox regularly gets messages from people who bought a £150 camera then cheaped out and bought a £3 memory card on ebay - Then when it doesn't worth they blame the camera! It doesn't make any sense. Good memory is cheaper than it's ever been - see the links above.

A lot of HD cameras will not work properly with cards larger than 32GB (cards over 32GB are usually SDXC rather than the SDHC standard used by 32GB cards. SDXC cards use the ex-FAT system rather than FAT32 - in short they are a different standard). - so don't just buy the biggest card you can afford - read the specs in the manual to see what it accepts.

RECOMMENDED CARDS (for action cams - see dashcams below)

CLASS 10 UHS-1 CARDS (For HD Cameras)

SPECIAL DASHCAM CARDS

The SD card in a dashcam is re-written over, more frequently than in other types of cameras. Some manufacturers void their guarantee if an SD card was used in a dashcam. So, no surprise, there are special High Endurance SD cards made just for dashcams...here's some.

 

VERY IMPORTANT. These links take you to the product, however Amazon have three different ways of selling. There's Amazon Direct - This means that you are only dealing with Amazon themselves, then there's other sellers that use Amazon's facilities - these show as Fulfilled By Amazon and finally there's Market Place sellers that advertise on Amazon, but operate independently.  I strongly recommend that you only use the first...the Amazon Direct - Sold By Amazon option. Even if it appears that you are paying a couple of £/$ more it is more than likely you are comparing the price of a real item against the price of a fake.

To give you an idea of the extent of the fake goods problem. In a 2016 survey by Apple - 90% of the 'Apple' chargers sold through Amazon - using the other the two methods..which includes the "Fulfilled by Amazon" option -  were found to be counterfeit....90%!

The Dazzne P2 - Budget Action Camera Review

The Dazzne P2 is a budget action camera that comes with a surprising number of accessories inside the box for a very reasonable price. Surely there must be a catch....watch the video below where I find out that sometimes good things do come in small packages.

UPDATE 2017 - I've been advised that replacement batteries are nigh on impossible to find. Please factor this information in when making your purchasing decision. The supplied batteries aren't the most robust.

Hi there. My waterproof case for Dazzne P2 is broken and i can't find another on the internet.
Do you know if Dazzne P2 fits in with other waterproof case of other brands, for example SJ or GoPro? I know that the buttoms of Dazzne are not the same as for example GoPro, but this i not that important to me, i just need a waterproof case for my Dazzne P2.

Excuse my bad english :)

Hello
Just a note to see if anyone else is having difficulty in using gopro studio to edit videos from the Dazzne P2?
I can import them into Studio, but as soon as I try to convert them, Studio just crashes. If the footage comes direct from a Gopro, there is no issue - so I am not sure if Studio will not work with anything other than movies from a Gopro?
I see that Dazzne make their own "studio", but I cannot see it anywhere to actually download and try. Any ideas?
Any guidance would be super.
Thanks

Hi great review but one question does the dazzne p2/p3 have the ability to work with a remote and if so where could I find one??

September 9, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCathal

The P3 has WiFi so your phone is the remote. The P2 doesn't have any radio transmitter/receiver so is a standalone device.

September 9, 2015 | Registered CommenterTechmoan

Your reviews are brilliant. Ive spent all weekend watching them. Im in the market for an action cam and from your reviews i think ill be going for the P2, unless a firmware upgrade improves the quality of the 1080p 60 footage on the p3 in which case i will opt for that. However i recently heard a bit about a camera called the Gitup git1, which seems to have potential with some interesting features. It would be awesome to get a review of that camera from you and your opinion on how it compares to the p2 and other cameras youve reviewed.

Here is a link if your interested.

It seems this is a usable external Mic for the Dazzne action cam :

I think this might be better as it has the adapter and the mic -

September 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCarlos

You're absolutely right Carlos. I was too quick with my post, didn't notice there was no mic in the first productlink.
I ordered the first. But i have a mic here already, so that's fine for me.

September 14, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterS.

I suggest using the USB microphone directly, no necessary to use adapter.
