This little camera seems too good to be true. 4K camera the size of a Zippo lighter for $500. Does slomo, timelapse. The main drawback is that you are stuck with a fixed wide angle view. What do you guys think?

It's a tool, like all other cameras. Did a whole feature where we used them as one of the main cameras, because it fit that specific style. Helpful to have around, nice to even just carry with you on any shoot since sometimes you can find a use for it-- even if that use is just shooting silly time-lapses of yourself working.

It can modded with a rigid C-mount if you like.

That would be key. The quality looks good, but that super wide angle dolly roll look is so played out at this point.

GoPro's have their ups and downs, sometimes they make good looking images, sometimes they don't and sometimes they glitch and overheat.
