PROS

  • The long, cylinder-styled design of this camera makes it well balanced for mounting the unit on headgear or bars.
  • You can use the camera under water at depths up to 30 feet without any additional housing, and it is shock resistant.
  • This small camera captures up to 1080p video with a wide, 170-degree angle lens.

CONS

  • The battery can't be removed, so when the battery dies, you're done until you can juice it up again.
  • The Wi-Fi streaming uses one app for a live remote view of what the camera sees and a second app for viewing the files.
  • The camera lacks image stabilization, so video can be choppy.
The Polaroid XS100i Extreme Edition HD camera makes it easy to record 1080p video in any environment. This sports action video camera has a slim, cylindrical design that is convenient for mounting on a helmet or handlebar, and it is waterproof so you can take it on the go and capture the action on land or water.

As long as you respect its limitations and keep the camera steady, the Polaroid XS100i is a good easy-to-use budget-friendly option for dabbling in hands-free video. (Review of version with integrated Wi-Fi.)

The shape makes for easier mounting on certain types of objects. For example, I took this bad boy golfing and the shape allowed for me to mouth it onto the club with a bike mount and lay it along the shaft for a cool perspective.

Save for the lack of viewfinder, the XS100i is a really nice action cam. Waterproof, durable (I dropped it twice…), and stylish, the XS100i is one we can highly recommend.
