You Can Now Get An Entry Level Action Cam for Under a $100
GoPro are making the headlines this week with their announcement about the launch of entry-level Wi-Fi GoPro Hero+ for $200 only.
Sure, there are some relatively inexpensive cameras in the GoPro range already. However, the earlier models in this price range did not include Wi-Fi before.
So, the new cam is great news for those who love to instantly share pics and videos or send the footage to their phones. The camera also allows you to make 1080p video at 60 frames per second and you will have 8 megapixels at your disposal. The Hero+ is scheduled for international release on October 4th and has lots of GoPro fans already looking forward to it.
With that said, the camera will still come with the price tag of $200. If this seems like a heavy bang on your pocket, there are lots of other options available for as little as half the price.
Take a look at this Blackview action sports camera. It comes with pretty much the same specs and includes Wi-Fi, a 170-degree lens, 1080p video at 60 frames per second and 16MP. Basically, you have pretty much the same case, plus a waterproof case that lets you take the cam for up to 30 meters deep and a load of mounts and other accessories. All for under $100.
Another option for action lovers on a budget could be the Q3 camera series. The action cam comes with Wi-Fi (of course), 12MP, a 170 degree wide angle lens, 1080p at 30 frames per second (720p at 60FPS), a 2 inch LCD, remote and lots and lots of mounts. The Q3 sports action cameras come at an even lower price – under $60 – and are available in three colours.
The moral of the story is this. There are more and more affordable action cameras available on the market. What’s more, they are not the featureless options they used to be. Entry level sports cameras now come with lots to offer and are great gadgets to bring along on an adventure.
