I just hope i get my camera before 10/29 cause I'm leaving on vacation on the 30th and it would suck if i left with no camera,
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the AEE S70 Waterproof Action Camera and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 10/19.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 10/23.
Does it come with a microphone?

when i joined the external mic was listed as included. I can't help but notice it no longer is.
Hello Everyone, We are going to go ahead and extend this drop through the weekend to give everyone to take advantage of this drop. Thanks Everyone.
They need to stop calling it a waterproof camera. It is not a waterproof camera, it is an action camera that has a separate waterproof housing. Huge difference! I can't believe no one else has a problem with this. Otherwise the camera is good.
Hmmm.... I received my package a week or two ago and put it aside since I was so busy. Now I see there's a lot of confusion. So I just checked to see what I got.
Luckily, I was one of the early purchasers, and Massdrop sent me the remote. I'm very happy about that. Thanks, Massdrop, for your integrity and making sure you shipped out what was advertised at the time of purchase.
But I'm confused about the case, as well. Was the black Extreme case ever pictured in the original offer? Even though I received the remote, mine came with the clear 10m case, and not the 100m case.
So either there was never a 100m case on offer (and the written description was and still is incorrect), or there was a black 100m case initially pictured and offered (like how the remote was initially pictured and offered), and I didn't receive that despite being one of the early buyers.
So did anyone receive a black 100m case, or was that never offered at all?
I'm happy enough to have received the remote control, don't get me wrong. Just wondering if I should have received a black 100m case as well.
K.T.N
They pictured the black case and remote at the beginning. After they changed the photo the camera was shown with the clear case. Those of us who opted in early got the remote but not the case. Massdrop support has been silent on the issue after they said they'd look into it. (I emailed them during the last drop) It seems like none of them are reading these comments either otherwise I'd expect they'd correct the error. It's a shame because MD support has been fantastic in all other matters.
Now, even with this being the clear case water proof to 10m, the camera is still a good deal (Amazon lists this as between $219 and $245 USD). Knowing what I now now I'd still purchase the camera. It's been great in my pool and backyard and I'm excited to use it for my next kayak trip .
Since it's a little unclear -- what waterproof housing is included with this, if at all? The 10m or the 100m one?
So the drop is back again. Does it include the 100m diving case or not? I need a guarantee that it is included, otherwise I'll skip.

Highly doubt it. The current accessory picture is exactly what was included in the last drop.
Good news group. We’re glad to report that all of the orders have been shipped out from our warehouse and are now on the way to you. Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.

Just received mine. No remote as initially expected but that's ago since they change the info. My only concern now is the literature that came with the camera says the case is good for up to 10m. Massdrops descriptions says the camera is good for 100m. I highly doubt the camera with no case is working 300ft under water so what's the deal?

It was also mentioned in the discussion that Massdrop was including the remote to the few people who joined early (perhaps before they updated the info). They sent an email to those early joiners. And indeed only the "extreme" housing (the black one) is good for 100mts. On the compatibility with the GoPro accessories I've seen some adaptors sold online, I'm still waiting for my package to arrive so haven't been able to see if I'll need one. http://www.amazon.com/HOZER-Tripod-Adapter-Wearable-Equipments/dp/B00OOMSDWW
It's too bad they didn't update that info or get the case like they did the remote since it still says 100m. And the phone app for this thing is pretty terrible so I may have to order a remote. I ordered a $30 'all you need' type of accessory kit from Amazon and everything seems to work fine except a GP4 specific frame housing. But I have really enjoyed the camera so far with the exception of the app.
The first batch of the order has been shipped. People belonging to this batch should have received an email with tracking information. The second batch of the order will be shipping out between tomorrow and Thursday. We will make sure to update the group once the complete order ships.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 9/18 or sooner if something comes up.
Are these being shipped individually by vendor or by massdrop? I'm sensing bad communication with manufacturers on this one. Still unsure what case I'll be getting.

To be completely honest, I don't understand why so many people are getting so upset over this drop. Sure, there were points of miscommunication, but you're getting a pretty nice camera for less than half of the MSRP. I don't know if I've ever seen a drop that cut the price from the MSRP that much, and I don't particularly have a problem with anything that has happened, because you tend to get those kinds of things when you pay so little for something. I think that massdrop has handled the points of miscommunication pretty well, actually.

This is one of the many products that has a "MSRP" that isn't really used. This camera is about $200-$250 on Amazon at this moment. Ultimately yes I am receiving the product I wanted, but I do wish they at least addressed "hey this has changed" instead of just changing what they are saying.
Great news group! The vendor has let us know that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the tracking provided these are scheduled to come in 9/14. Our warehouse team has been forwarded tracking info and will be standing by, ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.
Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, not to worry as we will keep the group posted throughout the process and notify you all if anything causes delay.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 9/15 or sooner if something comes up.
Thanks again for joining the drop with the community. We submitted the group’s order with the vendor for the AEE S70 Waterproof Action Camera shortly after the drop ended and they have begun preparing it for shipment.
Once the group’s order is ready at the vendor’s location, they will ship the packages individually to you as soon as possible.
Once we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you guys with updated information on the status of your package.
Expect an update from us on 9/9 or sooner.
Wasn't the lowest price for this $149 in the drop? I just saw it come through at $159 on the final order. Not sure if anyone else remembered it being cheaper at the cheapest tier. (maybe we never made it?)
jkelly
The price did get the lowest teir of $149, but there is a 9.xx price of shipping, so the total is 159.xx.
I was the first person to get in on this drop and was happy that Massdrop stood behind what they listed. I can understand some people feeling left out, but... you need to pay attention to the details up front, not after the fact. The remote (and the whole package that was shown in the original listing) was the reason I bought in so fast, it was an incredible deal. Now I cant wait to see this camera in person.
One other thing to note, is that the original posting had both cases shown, the updated listing just had the all clear waterproof case. Curious what we will end up getting.
jkelly
Speaking to those cases... it's pretty unclear what case we will receive.
The photos had previously shown the camera in a black case. Currently the photos on the drop page show a clear case. After looking online it seems like there are 2 versions of the cases. The clear case is described as waterproof to 10m and the black case being waterproof to 100m.
Since the drop page currently advertises this camera can be submerged up to 100m are we getting the black case? Or is this clear case an updated version? Ive attached links to B&H photo whom carry both cases.
The clear case: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1056570-REG/aee_s70m_s70_mini_housing.html/prm/alsVwDtl
and the black case http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1056571-REG/aee_s70xl_s70_pro_housing_lcd.html/prm/alsVwDtl
Actually, they lost my respect with this drop: When I first looked at the description, the remote was included, and I joined specifically because of that (one of these "Wow, I got to have that!" moments). I was traveling, and put off the actual order for a few days. When I finally joined, nothing on the description page alerted me to the fact that the product description had changed. I placed my order "knowing" that the remote was included. This is at least bad customer service, and comes close to bait&switch...

Don't need to make him look like a horrible person either. I too got fooled by the early description, upon commiting I didn't really go through the whole bunch of text again, yeah ok it's my bad, but still a little caption saying "hey, this thing isn't included after all, sorry." would've been nice.
khkremer
I don't buy this. It's your responsibility as a consumer to be aware of what you are buying. They didn't deceive and displayed the info for exactly what would be included. Not only that, but they decided to include the remote for those of us who joined early. I am at the complete opposite end and respect massdrop for this and am a more loyal customer. I like the way they handled it.
Is the camera itself waterproof and the added waterproof case enables it to go to deeper depths?
Nice, I was waiting till Massdrop made an official statement. Missed out. Props to Massdrops CS.
i was going to buy this, comited, buty had to cancel as the clarification isnt there from massdrop as to whats actually included in this drop, the remote was important to me, apparently this has disapeared.
Euanthow
I was in the same boat, but waited to cancel my order, and I got this email a few days ago: "Hi there, I'm writing in regards to your order for the AEE S70 Waterproof Action Camera. Due to misinformation that was given to Massdrop from the vendor, we initially included the remote as part of the Drop. The remote is not actually included with the S70 action camera; the option was quickly taken down, to prevent any confusion or false expectations.
You were one of the select few who joined the Drop before the remote was removed from the site. On your behalf we have attained the remote from the vendor, as it was advertised at the time you joined the Drop. To confirm, you will receive the remote with your order at no additional cost to you. "
I have never seen a company do something like this, huge respect for Massdrop!
Hey, guys, I have Xiomi Yi (just bought it + waterproof case), and I can sell it and upgrade to this camera. Should I do it? What do you think? Is it worth the 50-60 dollars more? I saw some YouTube comparisons and people there say that the Yi is better for the price(3 times cheaper), but now the AEE is 150 bucks, so, please, give me an advice. Thank you!
"Able to perform through fog, it can be submersed up to 100 meters underwater. " If the pictures are correct then no, it can't. This is the Light version which can only go up to 10m under water (Search aee s70 Light vs extrême, you'll see) In order to plug the additional mic you also need to buy the f2 case (Light or extreme) which only has two legs. Bought it anyway since the price is pretty good but I got a little confused there!
I don't know if the company responds to email, I was trying to find out that if I joined this drop, if it could ship in time for my planned trip leaving on September 3rd. Can someone from the company help me with this? Would love to participate in this and one other drop but must receive before I leave. Thanks for any help!
MitchRusso
I'm definitely not from Massdrop, but can pretty much say no, there isn't much of a chance to get this prior to the ship date listed at the bottom of the drop, much less by the 3rd.
All items on Massdrop are listed for the posted amount of time, following that an order is put in to the manufacturer, then the items are shipped to Massdrop's warehouse and repacked to be sent out to the individual buyers. The dates are pretty set in stone and any buyers in this drop shouldn't expect to receive their items before the 14th. The items probably wont even make it to the Massdrop warehouse before the 10th.
The camera is available elsewhere though (definitely not at the same price), if you really want it for your trip.
MitchRusso
Can you read? All Massdrop group buys have an estimated ship date at the bottom of the description page. This drop is estimated to begin shipping on Sept 14th, depending where you are in the world, it will take an additional few days to few weeks to get to your address.
Just looking at your profile tells me you have joined some other drops before, so you should at least be familiar with the way group buys work on this site.
Can someone explain the mic situation with this. Looking for something to do youtube videos with. Does this have a mic? If not, can someone recommend a cheap one that would work well with it?
It doesn't seem like you can swap batteries in this camera? That'd be a huge downside....
guvnor
Yeah, I was in the drop but I'm going to have to back out now that I don't fully know what I'll be receiving. Previously it had the bulkier underwater case and remote control like others have said. Can we get some clarification on this Massdrop?
How does it perform in low light?
Where does this product shio from? I am an sweden and noticed the wevsite for AEE is in swedish. I want to buy it - would I have to pay import taxes aswell ?
blightamin
AEE is a Chinese company, see link. Regarding import taxes; I think despite the availability of a product in your country, wether you will be charged or not depends on your country's import duties and tariffs. Some products might be subject to import duties while others might not. http://en.aee.com/About/Default.aspx
whats up with all the pictures changing and the case being different now? (Not the 100 meter case -.-)
EpicNewman
Sloppy work massdrop.
mrgreenhr
Also pictures initially showed the remote control... Is there a way that someone (from Massdrop of course) can clarify the REAL contents? I'm sorry but if they're not able to do it I'll cancel my order.
