1 Stars By Yoon S. Chung on 2014-01-16 BUYER BEWARE! Customer support and warranty problems! My unit stopped working, I bought it 3 months ago and never even took it outside. I emailed customer support, no answer. There's just non-committal, "we'll aim to reply to further technical support enquiries within 24 hours". Well, it's been more than that and I'm still waiting. There are no phone numbers to call. Not even a troubleshooting guide (just a short list of FAQ). I can't even return it back to AlumiGogo, and though I believe it comes with 1-year limited warranty, if you go to their website, there is no information on warranty or service.
Oh and the manual? It's a Getting Started Guide--a guide that doesn't even explain everything, and there's nothing on their website that goes into further detail.
This has to be one of the worse consumer electronic companies I have ever purchased a product from.
For a little more, do you know what's an even better HD camcorder? the new Apple iPod Touch. I'll never buy another Veho product again.
**** UPDATE 1/23/2014: ****
STILL NO RESPONSE FROM CUSTOMER SERVICE after 3 submitted support emails spanning 9 days so far. I am convinced that THEY WILL NOT HONOR THEIR WARRANTY. BUYER BEWARE! Go visit their web site before you buy and see for yourself--there is no warranty support!!! This is not an inexpensive product--buy at your own risk!
**** UPDATE 2/7/2014: ****
Heard back from the company finally. First, they asked me to contact the reseller regarding warranty and returns. And then, when I said it was AlumiGogo, they gave me an RMA to return the device to the United Kingdom, at MY COST! I checked with USPS and the estimated cost is almost $40 to ship to the UK. I've decided that I am not going to throw good money after bad. Now you know what Veho's tech support, warranty and RMA process is like!
2 Stars By T. J. Young on 2012-12-22 Quirky, But Amazing! I bought this camera based upon the reviews and example footage I've found on YouTube. The reason I purchased this to begin with was to have a wearable camera to wear while on patrol (Law Enforcement). I needed something that would be of quality, use as little space as possible, and be solid in construction. When it arrived, I immediately started testing it out using the 1080p and 720p settings:
Video Quality: Amazing quality on HD settings. Eats up memory space like a mad man, but looks pretty solid. I was able to transition from light to dark with little problems, and see clearly in all recordings. I could read license plates, street signs, etc. when mounted in my vehicle, and see small text when worn.
Audio Quality: Decent "to the rear" recording when worn, but amazing "to the front" as the mic is mounted on the from face beside the camera. I even ran some music in my vehicle and turned up the radio and it came across as clear as if I added the music onto the clip afterwards.
When speaking to different people I'm able to fully understand every word spoken within about 20 feet or less. Comes in handy in almost every regard.
Construction: It's made of hard and soft plastic. Has what feels like a rubbery feel to the front (which seems like a layer added on top). The screen on the back seems sturdy enough to take a few bumps, though I did leave the screen protector on it when wearing the alligator clip (the screen is put up against the clip with a small gap).
Downsides: Eats up memory. A single 40 minute clip on full 1080 HD fills an entire 4GB MicroSD card. I'm not entirely sure why, but the footage breaks itself down into multiple files. One file was 3.42GB (31 minutes) and a second one less in length and size to fill the card. I see no option for ONE continous file which would be ideal.
One the of the most major flaws which caused me to give this a 4 star review is that if you leave the unit on and then try to record a few things happen. I usually keep it on and plugged in while wearing it (with an extended USB cord plugged into a laptop). When I go to record I pull the cord and began hitting record. The camera goes into a standby when not in use, so it takes roughly 15-20 seconds to get out of that and start up. This requires you to hit the record button over and over until it starts. You run the risk of stopping the recording this way as well.
I then noticed after doing a VERY crucial recording... that while it recorded the video in full HD perfectly fine (albiet two files), it had NO audio. ?! That's what I said. There were some very specific statements and observations on the video that were completely lost. I tried three different players (VLC, KMPLayer, Quicktime) and the audio was simply gone. I attribute this to the fact that I had been keeping the camera on for too long regardless of whether it went into standby or not.
Bottom Line: It's an amazing camera. It's discrete. When mounted to chest I've had people look at it and not even notice it's a camera (I did apply black electrical tape to the MUVI logo which is bright white on the front, and to the two lights on it). It's sturdy... not a single problem even after some drops. It comes with an amazing variety of mounts for the dash, body, etc. The price is decent, and the quality is worth every penny. I'm tempted to buy a second one to dash mount it and run it in conjunction with the chest camera.
I have run into a snag with the camera. Apparently plugging it in and unplugging has now made the USB port non-functional and it physically moves around in the body of the camera. Plugging it in no longer charges it or accesses the footage. This is not something I would have expected to randomly happen from this camera based on its performance thus far. I have dropped the rating down to 3 stars while I contact support and see if they are able to send me a replacement (refurbished or not) or repair it. If the replacement goes through ok, I'll bump this back up to 4 stars and potentially 5 stars.
Just be aware that aside from the audio problem this is a possible issue that you can run into.
I contacted support through their website and received an email a couple days later. They will not replace the camera even if it's defective. They told me to contact AlumiGogo which they can't help either with it being outside of the return policy. I emailed them back again the same day and no response over a week.
I now own a $150 paper weight. Be warned that Muvi will not warranty this product.
5 Stars By Edward Cellini on 2016-07-18 Amazing! In this day an age, it's imperative to have the ability to record everything. The Veho MUVI camera allows you to have a high quality personal body camera and the ability to use it as a dash camera. When I un-boxed the camera, I noticed that it came with various different mounting options, a pretty solid water proof case for underwater / poor weather recording. Below I listed all of the pro's and con's of the Veho MUVI
Pro's: - Very sturdy clips and mounting hardware - Various different mounting options and equipment - Easy to use menu and settings - The ability to review video on the spot due to a small LCD screen - Recording settings are great! (1080p @ 30fps, 720p @ 60fps, 720p @ 30fps & a few lower settings as well) - Amazing day light recording quality, as well as low light recording quality - Comes with a very useful remote
Con's: - I really haven't noticed anything negative yet. I will say that the small LCD screen turned greenish after about 2 weeks of owning the Veho MUVI camera. However, this was my fault because I left the camera in my car for a couple days in the Las Vegas heat. So that issue was ocmpletely my fault and doesn't accurately reflect the quality of the camera. I'm still able to review video, the screen is just a little green though. Also, the video IS NOT green when I review the video on my computer.
4 Stars By Schira on 2014-01-10 I like it. But... The video you see here ...10 sec interval about 500 images time lapse exported out with Lightroom4. The lines you see at the top are reflections of window blinds because this was my first experiment shot thru window. Spot metered and position adjusted so that the exposure seemed almost right. Note... in my experience, the Muvi's spot metering is good at controlling/exposing for the highlights. But it gives no boost shooting in a dark environment compared to auto exposure.
The good - Better than expected quality in good light shooting at 1080p.
Misleading info - - You can shoot at the widest angle only in 720p. 1080p gives you a narrower view(explain why Veho!) - The max aperture is only 3.6 as per exif data on the pictures(Veho claims this to be 2.8 on their website(veho-world)). This 3.6 aperture is fixed irrespective of lighting conditions and camera parameters. So, camera plays with ISO and shutter speed to adjust exposure(Explain why Veho... if the camera is really F2.8 why won't you use it?). This also means, in low light, the ISO gets boosted (instead of opening the aperture)and you get a very grainy image.
The bad - My tripod socket came loose within a week. It may partially be because in both of my mounts, I can't feel if the bottom of the camera touched the 1/4" screw because it is a (unnecessarily)very tight fit. Also I think there should have been a collar on the metal insert in addition to the knurling to give it better support to prevent it from being pulled out so easily. I am getting this ... Veho Muvi VCC-A013-UTM MUVI Universal Tripod Mount Video Camera (Black)
I bought this to be used as a dash cam and this works great. It gets mounted upside down with the attachments came with the camera.
Good to know - 1080p files are split at 1802MB and for 720p at 902MB. Rewriting the older files(Loop record)works well. Waking up from standby is not really faster than manually switching it on(It takes a few seconds). You can switch it off directly (skipping holding the record button to show the display) while recording with the display off and video will be saved properly.960P is NOT 16:9!You can zoom only in 720P(even if you want to take picture). The camera releases the shutter when you release the button(not when you press it!) In 1080P, your image covers more area than what you composed(for photographs). You can not take a picture while movie recording is going on. Going to the playback area is the biggest trap(You better know what to press and in what order...there is no one click exit). I wish pressing the record button exited from any kind of menus. You can shoot timelapse with the screen off just like the video. Just noticed... it does not go to stand by mode if you are in a menu! I wish I knew how to make a charge and record cable for the car. Also I wish if AlumiGogo allowed me to add an additional video, I could have added another driving footage. You can have live HDMI output on the TV with the mini HDMI port(not that it has any use for me!)
5 Stars By Mike Rogers on 2017-12-27 Small and rugged A great deal for a low-cost body cam that's rugged and small. I've had mine since 2013 and if it died or broke or got lost I'd go right back and buy another one just like it (and it's come down in price about $35 since then).
It's got plenty of menu options and settings available to configure the camera. Outfit it with a 32Gb card (about $15 )and a 5000mah power bank (about $10) and you can record for hours and hours and hours. It uses about 1 GB storage for every 30 minutes of recording so a 32Gb chip will give you ~40 hours of run time. (The internal battery will only give you roughly 35 to 45 mins of recording time.)
The default spring-clip carrier is fairly versatile and the clip swivels 360 degrees. The clip would be perfect if it had some X- and Y- adjustment, but unfortunately it doesn't- you can't "point" it left or right to make up for the clip being attached to something that might not face straight ahead.
I've never used the watertight case- it's kinda clunky and unwieldy (but I think most of them are, so...). I've never used the auto-record feature but when I tested it everything seemed to work fine. All the other fittings and straps and clips and stuff that came with it are probably useful to other people but 99.99% of the time I just use the clip.
As mentioned above, I recommend that you get a 5000mah power bank and a 32Gb micro SD card to use with it- they turn the Muvi from "useable" to "useful".
5 Stars By Paul T on 2015-07-16 If you're considering the Muvi over the GoPro, read this. I use it for sailing, skimboarding, spearfishing, scuba/snorkeling. The Muvi comes with tons more stuff (meaning some very expensive mounts) than a GoPro. The case is hard as a rock and works for basic scuba diving (I've got no doubt that it would function in deep water but 40 feet is as far as I've gone). The picture quality is a decent HD, but it's not even remotely close to a 4k camera. The remote isn't water proof, but you can buy an underwater wallet/phone case (try the DRY PAK, also available on AlumiGogo for like $13) and stick the remote in there. This makes operating the Muvi underwater a breeze. My friends with GoPros have to constantly mess with their cameras if they want to start/stop filming. The remote really takes much of the hassle out of filming, and allows you to concentrate on what you're doing. The built in screen also makes life easier. I can't tell you how much footage my friends lost to their GoPros because they couldn't tell exactly what they were filming.
I don't like that the battery is permanent, but the entry level GoPro is the same. The battery goes for a solid 3-4 hours and holds a charge for months if you forget to plug it in. Sound is ok. It's all you really need, but it's not extremely high quality like more expensive versions. You'll get a lot of wind sounds interfering if you're doing something like biking or sailing. I find a good soundtrack to remedy this situation. The Muvi is bulky, but you won't notice it if you've got a good head or chest mount.
Overall, the Muvi is the hands down winner if you're considering the entry level GoPros. If I were a professional photographer or grown out of the beginner cameras then I'd probably buy a nicer GoPro.
2 Stars By Celtic Gypsy on 2015-04-20 After only a month, it is dead. We've owned this for right around a month. It worked great and we loved it. ...Until, the Mini USB port disconnected and stopped working. I was gently pushing in the cable (to download the video) and the Mini USB port just pushed into the camera and started moving around. Now we can not charge it, turn it on, or anything it used to do. We really did love this! Now we are heartbroken! I bought this for my family to Vlog/Blog. I am so disappointed. It is just dead.
5 Stars By S. Lee on 2013-01-30 I intended this for driving use and work but it excelled at catching our caretaker watching TV instead of dad. This little camera is great. I immediately plugged in a 32GB micro SD card and usually took this on my dashboard to record drives. (This thing comes with a mess of mounts and clip) It was also not only intended for use at work to catch those who should be caught but also our stupid customers who deserve to show their true colors on youtube. (And insurance for me for the lying hissyfitters.) This thing can be set to record when it hears audio. I wish it were motion sensor instead. Maybe next time. This thing is only like a double sized Zippo lighter in size and has an awesome color screen on the back to display what you're recording or looking at. You can also use it for playback on the unit.
We had recently hired a caretaker for my dad with Alzheimer's and I had a funny feeling about the new caretaker. I set the thing to record with audio sensor start recording and set the camera in the back of the room. Because this cam is HD AND has like a 160 degree view or something like that I was able to record watching the caretaker in up to almost 2/3rds + of the house. I caught her scoping out rooms she had no business in, and worse, ignoring my dad who she was being paid to care for. I watched her watch TV and talk on the phone for 3 days and fired her. BINGO! This recorder paid for itself hundreds of times over instead of us getting grief and regrets from a no good worker. I can just imagine something bad happening from a non caring caretaker. Thank you Veho.
This thing is small and easy to disguise. Just cover the tiny red light in the front with a square millimeter of electrical tape and you've got a cheap surveillance system. I should have rated this 4 because they missed motion sensor but this thing is a magnificent miniature HD camera. Even when I recorded 1080 it took a long time to fill the 32GB card.
This thing may also be great for sports but I messed up when I took it whitewater rafting so we never got to use it for that, although it did get to come along for the ride. The waterproof housing is waterproof and very sturdy, by the way. If you want a small, easy to disguise, HD, super wide angle camera, with remote control, that carries a very decent charge this is what you're looking for. The pictures from this motion and still camera are very clear and of excellent quality. I love this camera for its simplicity, tiny size, remote control, and excellent quality product both picture and build. What's even cooler is if you get the right micro HDMI > HDMI cable and you can play direct from the Veho to any HDTV. This also an excellent bargain for what you are getting. The recording video plays back in excellent HD on a large screen HDTV. I played it on a 60" and saw so much detail that I was really impressed something this small recorded such a beautiful video.
4 Stars By loulou on 2015-09-17 Durable & affordable Using as a body cam in a Law Enforcement capacity. Unit works well however, battery dies after approximately 3 hours of usage. Unit comes with a wireless remote, which I have attached to my duty belt. Wireless remote will not work if the unit itself is not manually turned on. If you leave the unit on in stand-by mode, the screen will remain lit which will drain the battery and reduce recording time. There is an option in which you can turn the screen off while in stand-by mode however, the unit will not record unless you turn the screen back on. This particular feature in and of itself is worthless. Unit can be set to record with a date and time stamp, which is useful for documentation and court purposes. The audio and video are good quality and have a wide view in non HD mode. HD mode has a narrow view however, the picture is more detailed. Unit does not have night vision so if you are on permanent grave yard shift, you may want to reconsider for the video is poor in the dark. I work for a smaller municipal agency with a tight budget. We are not issued body cameras and must pay for our own cameras if we want one. This unit has served me well. Its been with me during uses of force and in heavy rain. Nothing has stopped it yet. The unit comes with a heavy duty clip which also works well. The kit comes with video editing software, power/USB cable, soft case and several mounting brackets for use as a dash cam etc. If you have been thinking about buying a body cam, this is a good one at a reasonable price. I also purchased a service/warranty plan with the unit just in case.
5 Stars By BigDaddy on 2015-05-16 THE BEST LITTLE BACK UP PARTNER YOU COULD EVER WISH FOR... The Veho VCC â€“ 005 â€“ MUVI â€“ NPNG MUVI is by far the best body cam I have ever found. I use a 64 GB micro SD card and during the evening before my shift I charge my cam. I use it between four and six hours a day and I have no problems or issues with it. I simply turn on the power set the voice operated and it's ready for my shift. We live in a very crazy world and even for someone who's not on the job it's an excellent form of evidence gathering device in the event that something happens to you. My daughter has occasionally used it when she goes out with her 16-month-old son. The cost is very reasonable and it's very easy to use. You simply charge the device put it where you want it turned the power on and then set the voice operated system that way anytime you start speaking the body cam will turn on and start recording. The records in HD and you will not believe the quality of video that you get from this device. I am very happy that I purchased this item and it's with me everyday.
