I bought this as a cheap version of a go pro camera for hunting purposes. The cost was very good and it had a built in playback/view screen. My biggest complaint is that the 787HD only came with a plastic watrproof case, which is fine if don't need to access the screen. However, once incased ,you can not use any featrures, like play back,zoom in/out, delete, etc , except just to turn on/off, without opening the water proof case and removing the camera. Vivitar does sell a DVR 785HD camera very similiar to the 787HD, but comes with an optional case that can be used instead of the water proof one, which allows access to the controls. I returned the 787HD for the 785HD(Walmart doesn't sell the 785HD) because of the optional case,along with the waterproof case, bicycle clamp, and helmut strap. So far the battery life seems short, but I only need it for a short time anyway. I don't understand why the 787HD doesn't come with the optional case, and Vivitar doesn't sell one, so it's the 785HD for me.
