Hi John,it's a sh*t company, but they have good deals sometime.
The best thing to do is open up an account and it's easier, I used it yesterday and bought one the offer is worth 20 quid and when at checkout it credits your account so you will get it for shade £109 delivered. You can even Buy now pay later for 6 months. Their customer service is dire, better off doing live chat.
I will see if I can find a another code for you.
Your leads cured my pre ignition when hot with my plugs, never a problem hot or cold.
Thanks

Just checked my account and it's all gone through!
Came to £125 as I opted for the 3 years accidental damage cover, as I'm a clumsy sod!
Absolute bargain!

You're welcome, it takes 24 hours it says, I couldn't use it as i already had an account.
Get any problem mate it's easier to do live chat, the phone is useless. But it did say spend 60 get 30 so you should be fine. I checked the camera out on YouTube it looked really good and the mic seamed to be good too.
If you get it for £100 or little less it's a bargain.
Get back to me if have any problems I have dealt with them before.
They took off a washing machine twice because it was the wrong ended up with a free dryer

Just cancel it John and reorder, should have used the second code as it for new customers.
Still a bargain with the accidental cover. It sods law I will end up damaging mine and I ain't got cover πŸ˜‚
Three years ain't bad cover for that it's the sort of thing you could damage easily.

Hi Mark, they had them on that site for£149,I was tempted but the Nilox was a bigger bargain and the mic was brilliant, it also matched the better Go pro for it's spec.
This was a bit cheeky of Marquez though

Cheers Mark, I looked at the Session, but the nilox is at a par with the hero4, and at the price, it's much better deal.
It's got better battery life, and better ip rating out of its housing, plus the reviews were very good too.
Thanks for the info though mateπŸ‘πŸΌ

Got the camera today, and as a bit of a tekkie I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with it.
The resolution (16mp sensor) with such a small lenses is amazing, very little edge bleeding considering it has a 179degree viewing angle!
The low light ability is extremely impressive, as is the camera speed- i.e. The movement has no blurring however fast I move it about. It's also got a G meter and accelerometer ahem 🀣
Added to it a mass of accessories, different feet, mounting brackets and 100m waterproof case, it's bloody fantastic!
Oh and the app, allows you to connect, edit save and forward all the files with a wifi connection direct to your iOS or Android device with the App.
I can't see how a go pro can be better- even at twice the price of this.
Cheers Dog!!!!

Hi Johnboy, I got mine yesterday but haven't had time to unpack it.
I am glad you bought one aswell, I was going to buy Go pro for the pure reason that I could ask somebody for help in using it. But then I thought how hard could it be, and now you got one I could always ask you for a little help.
To be honest I never used one and this will be my first action camera. I thought the spec was impressive though I don't understand it as much as you. It's great news that you rate it and I did think that the Gopro
you was paying for the for the name a little.
I was shocked to see how small it was even through the packaging.
I am going to use on the bike, but I am going to get a Nilox dog harness and put it on dog as he is always playing hide and seek with me when walking in the forest, the other Labrador is fine, I shall catch him out, I can be shouting for him and he hides behind trees popping his head around to sneak a quick look to see me and the other one are going to walk back, well no more. I shall soon find out his little short cuts and how he suddenly goes missing πŸ˜‚

I think GoPro is now thought of as the action cam, much like you say Hoover when you mean the vac cleaner.

By no means are they the best value for money, I suspect you pay 50%,over true worth just for the name.
These new ones sound really good, plus like most others they use the GoPro mounting system so lots of options there.

Well i had to indulge myself on that deal as well, just had the email saying it's on its way so happy days ... oh, and got a day booked up at Donington in 2 weeks on the Kwack so will see how it performs (as long as I can figure out how it works )...
