Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

I've had a few skin flints from some of my other forums profess love for some cheap chinese Go-pro knock-offs but there always seems to be some catch 22 with them in the grand scheme (or they are so cheap they won't tell me for fear of someone ruining their good deal). They are getting there, but if you have to buy one today, I would probably still pony up and go with the GP unit.

Re: Is GoPro still the way to go?

I have a GoPro Hero+ my daughters gave me for last Christmas. Pretty much sat until about a month ago when I decided to go up the rather steep learning curve. Hardware, data input/output, and then video editing using GP Studio take some learning. At least for an old guy. Here is a video I made a couple weeks ago. Still going up learning curve.

Resurrecting the thread.

Looking at a cheap Chinese knock-off for our trip at the end of June. Do not want to buy GoPro. Some interesting looking cameras on Amazon, just not sure which is the most interesting.

Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

Thanks.

Of the knockoffs, the Akaso is arguably best. The image quality in good light approaches GoPro. The audio is lacking and I can't speak to durability. I'd recommend a used or refurbished GoPro 3+ in the 150-dollar range instead. I still shoot all my action cam shots with two GoPro 3s and they're still better than most of the brand new quasi-4K Chinese cams.
