      I've received mine and to be honest I'm disappointed.

      Video quality is as bad as the demo earlier this month led us to believe. For some reason in 2018 they've decided to go with motion-JPEG as the codec and it's low frame rate and jerky. That's before taking into account the lack of image stabilisation.

      The product itself is actually quite nicely built, but with the puzzling exception of having the micro-USB port very close to the base where the top of the 'mushroom' meets the stalk. This means that the only cable that I have that fits is actually the one that comes with it as the casing of all others gets caught on the lip of FOMO cover. (Photos - https://imgur.com/a/RKQuk) When you get it, look at the cable and you'll see the connector is actually longer than standard. Even then it only partially fits as the casing still catches the rim.

      A really odd design oversight.

      Contents of the box? Certainly not what was in the campaign under the section "THE FOMO COMES WITH". Mine has no Outer Shell, DIY Template, Brooch-pin Mount or Clip Mount. It comes with a "Magnetic Sheet" that whilst on the surface seems quite strong, in practice is fairly weak. On my t-shirt it initially grips tight, but even a gently nudge knocks it off. I certainly wouldn't trust it on the flat of my satchel as is shown in some of the campaign photos.

      Packaging? Quite nice actually. A decent box and nicely designed. Until you get to the instruction leaflet which is riddled with grammatical errors. As someone has already mentioned, I can't believe they couldn't find a backer to give it the once over. As backers they already have our money, but to potential buyers it won't look good. However it does have clear and concise diagrams.

      I don't think it will used for what I had in mind. If at all. I travel as much as I can and I'm a photographer at heart. So whilst I'm away, I'm usually concentrating on still images but I'd like to have a bit of video to add to the memories. I had hoped to have this as a discrete camera that would just keep recording and hopefully get a few usable clips out of the days shooting. But with the shakiness and a 1-hour battery life it won't meet that purpose.

      Quite frankly, it would be better marketed as a kids toy. The bright colours, DIY Faces (if of course you had a cover to keep it attached *ahem*). Clip it on your kid, send them to the park, throw a ball or whatever.

Thank you for wonderful device.

      Hi, I received my FOMOcamera thanks. However, it was the wrong design that was sent. I ordered design 7 (Holmes). I received the camera design instead. How do we fix this?
      Also, there is only a magnetic sheet. I thought it came with a brooch pin or a clip as well?
      Thanks, Backer 648

      No response to an email for a refund and now reading these issues with those that are delivered. This is not going to be pretty.

      @steinbring, please check the Updates page. They shipped the first 500 ones to "test the international air parcel system" on the 1st week of February and the people who were included in that were chosen by random and not directly by their backer number. If you haven't received a tracking number, you weren't in that batch. Currently it's Chinese New Year and everything is stopped until the end of the February. Most likely next batch is being shipped hopefully early March.

      Hi @FOMO

      I received mine today , ship by LEGIONEXP. My pledge is the super early bird + accessories + one extra FOMO and both upgrade to two 32gb( extra $20) but I received one is 16gb fomo, the video that I record keep flashing and it hurt my eyes. Another one is 32gb fomo while the video can't play on my PC.

      where can i send them for repair in Singapore ?
      Feel disappointed. Singapore design product should be better.
      now chinese new year coming, can't use my two fomo for videoing.

      "Hey Tim,
      Sry for keeping you waiting for such a long time, yes, we accept refund as you requested, but kindly note we can't get you a fully refund, b'coz Kickstarter charges us about 15% commission fee from our total amount, and we have put most money into SW&HW development and camera production. In this case, the refund won't be that much, which is about 26% of your pledge amount, if you insist to ask for refund, please provide your Paypal account, we'll refund you 26%, which is $20.5. Thanks for your support anyway." Can we get someone from kickstarter on this?
