Cameras!

Postby clark » Thu Feb 21, 2013 12:21 pm

So, I'm thinking about getting a camera, and I'm curious about what's out there. I know the GoPro brand, and I'm basically familiar with the HERO3 Black/Silver/White options (H3 Silver = H2, H3 White = original Hero). I'm not spending $400 on the super-awesome H3 Black. Hero2's are all over ebay, but I think the lighter weight and smaller size of the H3 Silver would be worth it. There's got to be another good bang-for-the-buck video camera. What say y'all?

Here's a semi-recent review (http://gizmodo.com/5965732/the-best-action-camera) of the Drift Ghost, Sony Action Cam, Contour+2, and the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition.

What else is out there, though? I found this on miata.net, as a decent CHEAP option.

Anything else? Or is the GoPro the leader for good reason?

I didn't click the links but I know there are alternatives to GoPro. However, there are limitations to them all. I'm disapointed that you have to buy a screen for the gopro and it doesn't come automatically. That said, I bought a gopro to replace my old (now archaic) Sony HI8 handycam. I got the middle hero3 but am yet to use it (no autox car :( ). I seem to think the GoPro is the camera of choice for a reason. Have people pitch in for a bday gift or something if you're worried about cost.

This is just my opinion, and we know what opinions are like... :P
