One of kids has one, we clip it to his skiing helmet. The prob is you're not viewing through them and miss most of what your trying to film. Pretty good if your just filming where your going rather than a specific target.

I have a couple of cameras, a cheap one and a good one, the difference in the quality is noticeable the colours and contrast are much better on the good one which is a DogCam.

However at 150 a pop they are on the expensive side.

What do you record onto with the Costco one is is integral?

It has a small memory built in, or you can add a 2gb sd card
