      I just received mine. It's ok. Lots of accessories. I almost like it.
      I have tested (almost) all the video resolutions available. Here's what I found and did not like:
      720p 30fps 31.5mbps
      720p 60fps 31.5mbps
      720p 120fps 22mbps
      1080p 30fps 31.5mbps
      1080p 60fps 31.5mbps
      2.7k 30fps 34mbps
      4k 30fps 38mbps

      It's not normal to have such a high (the same) bitrate for all those resolutions. Maybe a software update will fix that.
      Also any resolution with 30fps looks chunky. Therefore, no 4k for me with this cam. It's ok because i don't have a 4k TV anyway.

      I compared videos of the same thing with a friend's Elecam Explorer Elite. There's no degree of comparison. I intended to buy the elite model at first. Now I regret that I didnt.

      After lots of tests I came to realise that the videos shot at 30fps have a clear image. 60fps look like being interpolated

      If anyone has different experience with this model, please share.
