I bought my cam out in France at the local Decathlon store whilst on holiday. The camera is awesome for the money and even came with the waterproof case! Absolute bargain compared to the Go pro. Performs really well and takes crystal clear HD images and video. The only downside to this camera would be the battery life. It seems to die about 1/2 hour to 45bmins of use :( overall a good cam for the money.
I've owned several SJ4000s which is the poor mans Go-Pro. The G-Eye 500 is miles ahead in build and video quality. It gives true 1080p rather than the wild claims (lies) made on most SJ4000 sales.
Comes with all the connectors, water proof case (again, better design that SJ4000s)
I've been using it as a rear facing camera on my bike, it supports image flipping which is necessary for saddle rail mounts (as the camera has to go on upside down)
Fairly easy to operate, the menus are a bit confusing but when aren't they?! Reading the online manual and getting familiarised should sort this out.
My only gripe is the built in battery, you cant replace it so camera is no good if the battery dies.
Well worth spending the extra £20 to buy this over an SJCam
I have purchasing products from Decathlon from past 1 year but the product never dissatisfied me but in the case of this action camera it was totally disappointing, due to the fog inside the camera my all the shoot get spoiled i suggest Decathlon to either remove the product from website or bring some solutions for the fog which spoil the footage.

I took this camera skiing last week-visiting my niece in Courchevel for the season.
The instructions were impossible to make out even though we followed them to the letter. We could not get the camera to work.
We had no idea whether video-recording or not!
In the end used our mobile phones for videoing - easy!
- have left it in France with her to see whether she can make any sense of it all.

the biggest Mistake of this camera is the power button is Delete button, so without re-conform, it delete your photos. good photos above and bellow water, strong case ..

A good product for starters
Hi guys i paraglide. when i have used the G500 underwater the image is good. But when i paraglide i get very misted images. Any suggestions welcome
I bought a GEye 300 and the image is always inverted during playback - I have not found a way of rectifying this problem; this is a shame as the picture quality is very good
I took this product to andaman for my dive. When I opened the packaging, the water proofing case had a layer of mist on it which made the pictures blurry
Even while I was using the camera underwater at very shallow depths, the cam starts heating up and again a layer of mist forms on the casing
This cam best works at 720P. At 1080p, it drops to 30fps. Which is too low
Sorry for the inconvenience caused and thank you for sharing your feed back.Misting is normal for most cameras that are used under water. This can be resolved by using ANTI FOG INSERTS .Such inserts are not available with Decathlon India but can be easily bought through other online sellers. I remain available for any further clarification.
Fantastic photo and video quality..easy to use and handle...video quality is superb even under water..
