The video footage is not upscaled on this device. The video on this unit plays back in clear 720p HD format.
Some similar camera units record audio, but these will only pick up normal level speech up to a metre away. Is this device the same?
Certainly not. As much attention has been given to the quality of the audio and you should expect the microphone to pick up on normal speech up to 6 metres away.
