I only looked at the US site and it's $89.99 there.

I just checked the 2nd UK link and it's £49 so that's cheaper.
Maybe price mistake on the 1st UK link.

Video samples on a bicycle: I used handlebar mount from a different action camera and it was not very tight so you'll hear some mount rattling sound.

do the raw files look better than the screenshots posted?
Not much better.
I think the lens is OOF on this sample plus it has heat focus shift issue in 4k mode.
I will post more videos as a dashcam and you'll see rain drops on windshield sharp but everything else oof.

Yes, it doesn't seem sharp compared to my other 4k action cameras.
For example, here's Firefly 6S 4k in the same streets I reviewed last year:Firefly 6S 4K sample

I don't like any of the videos you posted if I'm being honest unless you have a faulty copy If looking at my post where it tests the camera along with 4 others models looked the best in the bunch .

Yes, I think lens on this one is oof to begin with that gets worse after it gets hot.
I'll do a side by side with another action camera to see how it comes out.
