- Budget action cameras?
Any decent budget action cameras out there that come in cheaper than a gopro?
Not for anything serious – just be nice to get some footage of some trails and the misses would also like to use it for horse riding too.
No commentry or anything like that – but ideally need to be able to set it up so you can see that angle of recording is good whether this is through a screen or phone app.
These gets a lot of good reviews, but actual user reviews of gear on here is probably more reliable!

GoPro Session is what I went for. Yes, there’s no viewfinder, and using it with phone is a bit of a faff. But for most stuff you rarely ever need one. Not being able to replace the battery might be an issue too depending on your needs. I’m yet to run mine out filming short clips.Posted 6 months agothisisnotaspoonSubscriber
S/h hero 4, the black has more features (arguably none that you actually need though) But the silver has the screen.
The phone app is almost useless (especially with older GoPro, it’s almost usable with the newer ones but still a faff).
If you see GoPro stuff on TV there’s a good chance it’s a 4 black. Partially because the video stopped improving from that point and partially because GoPro got a bit more cagey about working with 3rd party accessories, you can spend thousands on a hero-cast but it will only work with a 4 black!Posted 6 months agoRamsey NeilMember
Don’t know what your idea of budget is but for well less than a Go-Pro I bought this Akaso V50 Pro for about £120 . It probably isn’t as good as a Go-Pro but it’s good enough for me even after facebook has crushed the quality . Shot at 1060FPS , it can shoot in 4K but I don’t generally use that as the files it produces are pretty large .Posted 6 months ago
