- Familiarity: I've used it several times
While I don't have the surf edition, I do have the Black edition and it's phenomenal. The picture quality is stunning. If it weren't for the fact that it's so small, this would replace the family video camera!
I've used it on a couple of canyoneering trips so far as well as recorded a couple time lapses of sunsets and all have turned out great. My only gripe is that the video quality comes across as far superior to the picture quality and so time lapses I usually just film and then speed up the footage rather than piece together the individual images.
