Cheap "Action Camera"

Not sure on quality, but might be good enough to stick somewhere where it might get damaged.

looks the same as the one i got tho mine had 2 batteries, loads of mountings and a carry bag, pics are pretty good for the price but do tent to curve in a bit, for the money , cant go wrong

Have you got any 'The Range' stores near you?
I got a decent one from there mega cheap.

5.99 with free delivery Be rude not to!
Just ordered one. Looks the same as my SJ4000 that cost 60!!

Looks good value to me!

Bought a similar looking one for no. 2 son a year or so ago for 30. He's had it on his stunt scooter, bicycle helmet and in-hand. Photos and video output seems perfectly OK and it seems pretty robust as well. His came with the transparent case and a series of mounts/attachments.

For the ECP price it does seem rude not to get one - roll bar mount it and capture track day action or similar. Storage space is cheap as well so no real issue with keeping captured footage.

Same as 40inches, looks the same as my SJCAM, i've just ordered two, not sure what i actually need two for but i've done it anyway!

I read the reviews on these and they arent genuine 1080 resolution. cheap and nasty and to be avoided IMO.

Gotta be worth a punt - I'll give it a shot

Just ordered one for myself, will be sorting a two day Caterham hire in a week or two so might be useful

couple of vids i have taken with mine, that was inside the waterproof case so should be better without it


gremlin1234 - 20/9/19 at 06:23 PM

looks a good toy, and at 6 just the the fittings should be worth it,
I might just get one

I bought a cheap -ish version a while back for 30-40. well impressed with the quality.
IT was a 4K at 15fps and 1080p at 30fps version. Ignore the 4K as 15fsp is rubbish.

The main thing to do is a decent Google search/research for the right one.

Very cheap for a reason. but good bargains can be found.

As the videos show good for the accessories only.

Up to a point you do get what you pay for. I have one that cost me 70 or so, compared with a friend's one that cost around 30 (prices are from a couple of years back & obviously a lot cheaper now) - couldn't tell much difference on the picture quality, but the sound was hugely different - I was using it on my ski helmet & with his camera once you got over about 5mph the wind noise was horrendous - sounded like you were doing about 90!

That said, at that money, you can't go far wrong & if it gets broken or lost then it's hardly a disaster!
