Interesting. Wondering if fish eye is the only lens option - I would like a viewing angle more suitable for bike riding. The video showed example of bike riding across the Golden Gate bridge, but I prefer a viewing angle more suitable for road riding.

The Sony Action Cam HDR AS100V looks like a better choice for road riding.

I know - I already have the Action Cam.

Not the latest model though, but what I like about the Panasonic is the separation between lens and body. So I can mount the lens on the helmet.
