Pyle Sport Action Cameras

So you're all like I CAN'T BE EXPECTED TO DESCRIBE MY ACTIONS TO PEOPLE I'M TOO EXTREME!! Well, you're right. That's why we have these cameras. Now you can just go and do great things and hand other people the footage and stop wasting your time explaining. EXPLAINING IS NOT EXTREME!!!

Anyone know the depth rating on these? Wondering if they are appropriate for scuba.

Buried (literally) in the specs for the ones showing the case in the main pic:

Includes Waterproof/Shockproof Case (up to 9 feet)

I would figure it's the same for the others.

I purchased both an action camera (waterproof pink mini) and the bullet camera recently, and can't seem to get either one to turn on, respond, or even show up on screen when plugged in via usb charger. WHAT?! MORE TRIBBLES? ! I need to return these. Yes, I followed directions.

that's the way these pyle units are meant to be, which is that they don't work.

The photo-shopped race car camera image needs some more work.

Have you contacted Pyle for warranty service? They should be able to assist you.

Be aware that this review is for the PSCHD30, and the ones for sale on woot are the PSCHD60 model. I don't know how this affects the criticisms made about manufacture quality and video quality, but definitely disregard the price mentioned in the review.

I see no mention of the weight of these things? I'm wondering about using it with a quadcopter.

The woot! sale includes both the 720p (PSCHD30) and 1080p (PSCHD60) versions, the review is for the 720p version.

This camera is terrible. A few weeks back I wrote a lengthy review here on Woot and transferred it to Amazon as well. Since then, I've tried to take it out twice more to the snowboarding hill....
And it wouldn't turn on (AGAIN!) one time, and the other time the handlebar mount (per my earlier review, the ONLY mount worth a hoot) snapped at the angle adjustment point.

This thing is still pretty terrible. :-|

Don't Panic.

Has anyone been to an electronics trade-show? I mean the ones where unbranded items are on display, waiting to be bought and printed with some brand-name?

This is not the same as a company that manufactures an item and stands behind it and understands how it is supposed to work and has parts for it.

I am surprised Woot doesn't have it's own brand of products.

ok only I got one of these and have only used it once. I used it in an indoor setting with lower lighting levels and outside where the lighting was good. It is horrid if the lighting levels are low. If the lighting is good it appears to be ok but not great. Video may not be the smoothest. overall for the price and if used outside it is ok. Mounting hardware - maybe ok but clunky.

The low end Pyle cameras look exactly like this other cheap action camera
http://www.amazon.com/Southern-Telecom-Emerson-Digital-Cameras/dp/B00AGMWWMG

I'm pretty sure this is a made in China reference design and you'll be seeing it from other manufacturers.

I bought the Emerson one from Walgreens on clearance. It's about what you would expect for $40, but the waterproof case is nice.

The 720p version of this camera appears to be the same case manufacture as the Gear Pro 720P HD. I purchased two of these from Woot a couple of months back. the first one was attached to the front of my surfboard and filled with water in less than 5 min.

I was more cautious with the second one and was able to take it snorkeling a couple of times. however the first time i plugged it into my computer it erased all the data on the SD card, all the video was lost.

I would not recommend purchasing these. If you do get one i would also purchase a large bag of rice to dry it in.

Anyone notice that the cameras are photoshopped onto the skydivers, but not in the frame of the camera itself?

I bought this camera (the 1080p version) the day after Thanksgiving at Menards for $49.99. They currently have them for sale at local Menards for between $54.99-$59.99.

The brand on the one at Menards is Sharper Image, but it is the EXACT SAME CAMERA. Even the enclosure is the same.


http://www.menards.com/main/electrical/electronics/small-electronics/sharper-image-1080p-action-camera/p-2181623-c-6299.htm




Now, I have used the 1080p version, I have to say, the frame rate is less then acceptable. I was getting maybe 9-10 fps... ideally on a camera like this you want to get the standard 30 fps... nope.

To add to is, the file format it saves it as is HORIBLE to work with!!!

Honestly, I would recommend getting a Go-Pro... the frustration of these just isn’t worth the cheap price.

Just my $0.02 though.

Rice works but I would use the stay dry inserts that come in some electronic device packaging. But I am an Electronic Engineering Tech with Pyle Support. I have personally tested the plastic waterproof case that comes with these cameras. They are good if all the rubber seals are in-tacked. You may have had a faulty seal. As far as erasing data plugged into your computer, that could only happen if you formatted or made an error with your computer.
