and I gotta say...it's impressive for what it is.
Footage is ridiculously good, and the low-light samples they provided were reasonable.

It actually looks bigger than the image made suspect..but seems much nicer in mounting options for skydiving than the Telle-Tubby gopro stuff

It's about the size of a silver dollar, and thinner than the GoPro.
There are at least 10 different action cams being released at the show from various vendors.
The "wearable/personal" cam seems to be one of the highlights of the new year. So many pieces of personal tech, it's almost creepy.

Today is the last day (for me) at CES. Been great seeing a few skydive friends.
The show has been the most impressive CES in a long, long time. If the attendance, dollar flow, and tech are any indication of the future (and economy), it's pretty bright.
found 14 different "action cams" at the show in addition to the usual suspects. Everyone wants in on the pie, but most of it is low bitrate garbage.
Lots of flying drones, all of them with horrid video codecs, mushy pictures, but amazingly well controlled.
Tablets and 4K seemed to own this show.
And home life access/improvement controls that use the smart phone for proximity measurement and on/off cues. Washer/dryer on the net, so is fridge and stove.
Wild year.
Google glass ain't so great any more.

Have you, by any chance, seen this one?

I think this one is really interesting, esp. for people who are just getting into the drone game.. FPV Flight must be awesome!

These drones are all over the show. Alcatel has professional models, and even Verizon is in the game.
One of the companies (they're all forgettable with the crap compression) had a beautifully syncronized show of their drones flying patterns. It was so pretty to watch that I went back three times. The drones crashed at least twice in every showing, but the overall show was spectacular.
But..all of them in the sub 2000.00 point were crap video, even the models with third party cameras strapped to them. Too much vibration. It'll get better, that's a certainty.
