Cheap GoPro alternative

Postby Steve Grisetti » Tue Jul 09, 2019 7:30 am

Yes, I know GoPro is the gold standard among sport cams -- and deservedly so.

But I picked up this one, the CamPark ACT74, on a whim and I'm really thrilled with the results. The picture is terrific (and it's 4K). It's small (same size as a GoPro Hero 7), tough and works great underwater. And it's for sale on Amazon for under $50!

It also comes with a whole bagful of accessories, including mounts for bike helmets and handlebars.

Now of course I would never presume to say that a $50 Chinese camera is equal to a $400+ GoPro. But for not much more than I pay for a tank of gas, this great little value really is a terrific buy. At least in my not-so-humble opinion. Great for stuffing in your pocket for a trip to the beach or a waterpark.

Noticed that Amazon has listed an updated version of that camera. Price went up on the new version but it has stabilization.

From a cost perspective the Yi Lite is also a nice 4k camera. Have not compared the specs yet.
