Think you're adventurous? Think you've got the moxie to match your mojo? Let the Swann SportsCam DVR-460 Waterproof Mini Video Camera prove it to the world. Just strap one of these rugged little numbers to your head, arm, bike, butt, board, or even your shoes, then sprint, splash, soar, and skate your way through the environment of your choosing (journeys to the Sun excluded).

The DVR-460 SportsCam lets you back up every one of your wicked moves with 640 x 480 video or 1280 x 960 photos, giving you the evidence you need to prove you're the Tony Hawk, Lance Armstrong, or Johnny Knoxville of your generation. Or if you're the more retiring type, take advantage of the camera's included waterproof casing to record the pretty fishies glub-glubbing past you in Mallorca--then transfer the footage to your PC with the included USB cable and play it back whenever you need something colorful to break up your everyday existence.

With its built-in microphone, voice recording switch, 2.5 hour record time, and MicroSD slot for capturing up to 16GB (about 5 hours) of AVI video, the SportsCam keeps things simple so you can worry about more important things while, say, plunging earthward from a great height. It also comes with a vast assortment of mounts, so you can attach the camera to just about anything that moves. It's got straps, sleeves, clips, and brackets, so that every slide, spin, or tumble can be documented from nearly any angle.

Want to show the world what you're made of? Here's your chance. (Note: bandages, splints, and cold compresses not included.)

      I just used the camera with the water proof case on the head strap for the Indiana "Run for Your Lives" zombie themed 5k. I Uploaded the vids and broke them down into individual pics. The pictures are awesome!! On the next one I'll have 2. One will be facing backwards so I can get the chase pictures also.

      Pros: light easy to carry, many accessories, compact. Cons: Low battery continuously recording, image and picture recording are darker than they are. I would not recommend this camera for long trips. The longest you can use the continuously recording feature is barely 1 hour after not so much usage. It is like those electric toy cars, takes longer to charge than the actual use. the quality of the picture is great if you stand still but most smart phones will take better pictures. The noise pick up for auto recording is great. The download time of your pictures and video takes too long. In example took me 40 minutes to download a 1 gig video which equals a 37 minute recording. Pictures are shorter to download however the download speed is very slow. I had a 16 gig Micro SD card Patriot brand. The difference in download speed was not much different from a 2011 Toshiba laptop than a PC. So maybe its my laptop or PC. Hard to tell. I would recommend this if your planing to record for short periods of times. having a battery life bar would be better than having to guess on the number of blinks when holding down the button.

        Comments about Swann SportsCam DVR-460 Waterproof Mini Video Camera:

        So I really WANTED the GoPro Hero3, but I couldn't afford $300 - $400. So, instead, I bought this great little camera for $[$]. The only issue I have with it is that there's just enough room for the camera to move up & down. I fixed that by cutting a piece of postcard & slid it under the camera. Problem of the rattling solved. Since I can't do any scuba diving in East Tennessee I'm sure my motorcycle excursions through the Great Smoky Mountains will have to suffice. ;-) Great camera for $[$]! The other thing they need to include is a true handlebar mounting kit. I had to buy that separately.

                  I think this has to be one of the best values out there for a sports cam.I could not believe the quality of construction of the waterproof enclosure and the ease of use of the whole product. I would recommend this product to anyone.

                      Great size 1"x 2" if that big. It takes a good picture and picks up sound well. Comes with alot of accessories. The only draw back is you need to make sure you have good lighting - the recording tends to come out darker than the actual lighting. The micro-card can be hard to get out simply because the unit is so small.
