Recently I bought this handy little camera at a bargain price at GearBest.com under 30$.
You can find more details about the camera and it’s features on their homepage by clicking here.
Winning features for me were: horizontal viewing angle: 92.7°, Vertical Viewing Angle: 48.7°, Diagonal viewing angle: 111.2°, small body size of 54mm, video frame rate 20fps (1280×720) and support for 8-32GB Micro SD card, and Android and iOS app support.
Once you turn it on, camera will speak to you in Chinese and you will probably be confused as I am.
First you will need to install an app for the camera for your Android/iOS from their homepage.

In order to fix wrong date/time stamp in the application you need to find file “test/equip_test.sh” on your MicroSD card. You need to change value of “my_gmt” variable to mach your timezone. For example “GMT+6” maches my current timezone which is CEST.
