Hey everyone.... long time no see. Been really busy the last several months and haven't uploaded a whole lot lately. I actually got the AUSDOM A261 camera from Gearbest nearly 3 months ago but never got around to uploading a review, even though I had used it for awhile back in early October even.

I am probably going to take it easy on some of the reviews for the near future as there have been so many cams released this year with decent to even great quality, but they are all so similar now. Here are the features from Gearbest:

So yes, it has a battery, no super cap.

The video quality is better than average from what I felt after viewing many samples. But its also twice the price of a G1W so thats subjective for whats a better "value."

Main thing I don't like, as usual, form factor. I don't like suction cup mounts, and this one uses a proprietary mount. But other than that and no super cap, the camera has great video quality for the price, and feels high quality in the hand.

p.s. as of now I don't have sample clips up on drop box, the ones I had were 5 min long each and I wanted to reshoot them at 1 min clips with better conditions so those will come soon, in the description.
I noticed some features mentioned in the manual don't exist on the camera such as lane assist warning and exposure settings.

Aside from that, i like it so far in the 2 weeks i've had it. I had absolutely no issues with the suction cup mount. I just don't like how vertically long it is compared to more discreet cameras out there.
