Most excellent!

If you're accustomed to making music videos on your iPhone and are looking for a reasonably priced upgrade in terms of viewing angle, low light recording ability, and sound, this is it. This blows iPhone out of the water for recording yourself or a group, both in terms of viewing angle, video clarity including low light situations, and sound. You get what you pay for, and it doesn't have frills like a swing-out/reversible preview screen, but you'll love this thing.

Exactly what I wanted

What you need to know: If you are looking at this you are probably also eyeing he ZOOM Q8. I went for this because: 1. It was cheaper. 2. I don't need a zoom or windsock since I record indoors 3. It has Wifi video transfer and NFC real time video on a smartphone screen 4. Line in and better audio quality than the GoPro I've had it for about a week and have recorded about 2hours of video, fish eye lens looks great and audio is good quality, though the gain can be a bit on the low side. I may still need to tweet my settings. It set up well with the play motion app on my iPad and navigation is quite acceptable. I'd say GO FOR IT.
