besides GoPro?
« on: September 24, 2017, 06:29:15 PM »
Are there other sports action cameras out there besides Go Pro and Spypoint??? I know Spypoint makes one but would like to research others too before I buy one. I looked at the both brands at Cabelas  and Spypoint was water resistant and thats not good enough for what I want to do with it, Gopro would be costly with the accessories I would need to buy to make it work for me and my budget couldn't afford it.

Appreciate any & all suggestion regarding other brands & models to look at.

I have a Contour brand camera that I like. It takes great pictures and video - but I'm not overly impressed with the audio.

You check Craigslist or a pawn shop for GoPro accessories? I bought some accessories for mine that were lightly used and a fraction of the new cost.

I bought a wimius from Amazon for like 40$, ever bit as nice as my go pro, comes with a ton of accessories. It's worth a look, mines 18 months old and works like new still.

GoPro accessories are copied and available almost immediately on places like Amazon.  You can pick up a TON of accessories for hardly any money.  They might not be GoPro, but they work just fine. Heck, they might be made in the same factory.

I have a SJcam that looks just like a GoPro and works just as well. I can also use all GoPro accessories. I use it for scuba diving, skiing, and paddleboarding. Best part is depending on them model they are only 60 bucks!
