Yeah, I ordered one this morning. We'll see how it goes. Like, if I ever bother to use it. Or to watch the video if I do.

Today is Saturday. Can't seem to order one. Is this just a one day one deal? I don't want a robo vacuum, I have a great wife.

Yeah, woot sells one thing each day, that's their schtick. (Well, one thing, plus one T-shirt, plus one vaguely wine-related thing, plus one thing for kids, plus one home-related thing, plus one other thing.) But if you keep your eye on the site, these cameras will likely pop up again in a month or two.

Actually that camera is AEE SD20 Action cam which is re-branded following:

Swann Freestyle 1080p HD (USA)
Rollei Action Cam 200 (North Europe)
ActionPro SD20 (Germany) http://www.helmkamera-onlineshop.de/sd20-actionpro-aee/sd20-actioncam-hd-1080p-helmkamera-aee.html
Xtrax SD20 (South America) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76wZAaVqxdk
Yo! ActionCam SD20 (Spain) http://www.facebook.com/Yo.MiCamaraHD

I bought my Rollei Action cam 200 about month a go 199 at http://cdon.fi/kotielektroniikka/rollei_action_cam_200_%2btft-15651567
but it wasn't so good that I expected. It was a bit disappointment.

-image is quite poor in darker contitions (evening), but average in day shooting
-really poor black/white balance
-poor image stabilizer
-remote control operating distance is barely 1m (package says 5m)

Here's my Midland XTC200 vs Rollei ActionCam test, it recorded in evening (9 P.M)

Few other reference videos

There's newer versions coming up hopefully they have done some improvement to it.

Mine just arrived today. Maybe I'll get a chance to try it out before too long.

The update on mine is that I've used it once so far, and it wasn't for flying.
