Surprisingly good video, cheap mounts. 9/9/2013

I was surprised at the quality of the video taken by this camera. The good news is: it's worth the money.
The bad news is the cheap plastic mounts for the camera. The clip that holds the camera to it's various mounting brackets broke within a week. Worse yet, I can't find replacement clips on the Walmart web site. Polaroid doesn't even acknowledge the camera's existence on their web site.
If not for the mounting clip, I would have given the camera 5 stars.
Still, I took the camera for several rides on my bicycle along Lake Michigan at Petosky. It was mounted on my helmet. I also filmed my trek across the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes in northern Michigan. The video was excellent and I'm happy about the purchase. I'll rig a mounting of my own unless Walmart, Polaroid, or somebody comes up with replacement clips I can buy.
Consider this camera a good alternative to a GoPro. The price difference between the two speaks for itself.
