Pros

Excellent video quality

This camera boasts 1080p video resolution that gives an ultra clear video quality. With 120 degrees, the wide-angle lens can capture a fuller coverage that includes the surroundings of the road.

During outdoor sports, the combination of these two features can record a cinematic view of your adventures with precise details.

Even when you record in dark settings, this camera doesn’t fail to deliver because it makes images clearer with its photosensitivity component.

Durable body exterior

The body of this unit is made of aluminium alloy which is known for its resilience. As compared to hard plastics, aluminium alloy is more preferred because it endures physical impacts significantly.

It has a waterproof design that protects it during rainy weather conditions. This camera remains functional even if you accidentally splash water onto its body.

Flexible mounting options

You can mount this camera in a variety of ways. You can use this as a helmet camera with its helmet mounting holder.

This is preferred when you engage in sports activities such as skiing, racing and snowboarding. If you are on the road traveling, you can use the car or bike mounting holders. This enhances your safety on the road.

Very tiny

This can be effectively used as a surveillance camera because it can be discreetly hidden in your bike or car. If you want to record footage in a low-key fashion, this product is for you.

The bullet design makes it easy to hide in your car’s dashboard without getting noticed as a camcorder. When you place this on your helmet, you can avoid the lingering attention of other people because it is less noticeable than other box-camera designs.

Cons

Less battery life

This camera can only record for a maximum of 3 hours. A few customers who have already used this unit for their adventure complained about this issue.

Although it is enough to record a whole lap race, it is still insufficient if you want to record for a longer time during your road travels. Therefore, it fails to record footage when you need them the most.

If you want a camera that offers a longer battery life, you can try the Fly6 HD Camera and Rear LED Light Combo.

Limited recording time

The Pyrus mini sports camera doesn’t offer loop recording function like some other cameras do. Therefore, you need to delete the files off your memory card manually to prevent it from reaching its maximum capacity.

This issue was reported by a few customers who have purchased this camera. If you want to avoid this issue, you can try other brands that offer loop recording function such as the Tachyon BikerCam Motorcycle Camera System and the BULLETHD BIKER MATE action camera.

Relatively heavy

Although this product is tiny, it weighs quite heavy as compared to other cameras that weigh less than 10 ounces. At 17.6 ounces, this camera might be too heavy to be placed on top of your helmet.

This is another issue that was reported by some customers who have tried it. If you’re looking for a lighter camera than this one, you can try the CAMPARK ACT30 Bullet helmet camera which weighs only 90 grams or 3.17 ounces.

Comparison with other products

Fly6 Camera and Rear LED Light Combo

The Pyrus mini sports camera offers a higher 1080p video resolution than its competitor, the Fly6 Camera and Rear LED Light Combo which only offers 720p video resolution.

The Pyrus camera also offers more mounting options than Fly6 Camera and Rear LED Light Combo which is only designed for seat post mounting. Although Pyrus falls short in terms of battery life, it can still make it up to you with its tinier size and more durable body exterior.

ODRVM sports action camera

As compared to ODRVM sports action camera, the Pyrus mini sports camera is better in terms of recording time because it offers loop recording feature which is not offered by its competitor ODRVM sports action camera.

However, the Pyrus camera lacks the waterproof quality which is provided by ODRVM sports action camera. It also does not have Wi-Fi function while the ODRVM camera does.

Verdict

The PYRUS Full HD Mini Sports Camera offers one of the best video qualities in the market with 1080p resolution. Its photosensitivity element makes it possible to capture videos at dark light setting.

The different mounting options add versatility to this product. This can’t be used as a helmet camera but you can mount this on your car and bike.

Although it has a shorter battery life, it can capture videos discreetly because of its tiny size.
