Go Pro or Cheap knock off? Anonymous 06/25/14(Wed)05:27 UTC+1 No.2348494 Report

Hey /p/,

I need your opinion on the go pro. I'm leaving for Thailand in 5 days where I'm going to be deep water soloing and snorkelling and choke slamming lady-boys through coffee tables. You know all the typical stuff you want to record.

Anyway I want to know wether I should buy a go pro hero 3 or if there's a cheaper but still worthwhile alternative because I'm super poor and I need to save money for all the lady-boys.

I could probably google it myself but there's so many cheap knock-offs like the Kaiser Baas X80 and a bunch of other $50 cameras at target and stuff like that. It's just overwhelming. So are any of these worth while or should I shell out for a go pro?

Thanks /p/

Grab one of the cheapos and test it out. Generally, they should be fine. GoPro QC is utter trash and out of 20 units I've gotten 4 have failed, so don't expect a GoPro to be any more solid.

I'm suggesting a contour camera. I forgot which one but their highest model is nice and slim, should be cheaper too.

I look forward to the POV ladyboy porno.

GOPRO is just about hype, there're plenty of cameras that do the same.
Even sony has some

All I can think of when looking at OP images was pic related.

post them

all I have seen either don't have the water resistance/proofing, fps essential for slomo, or have terrible quality sensors (3mp)

I've shopped around, almost bought the pyle and foolishly almost bought a gearpro. I desperately want a gopro, but gopro 4 is about 3 months away from release and, if history is any indication, gopro4 will be the same price as gopro3+ (which won't drop in price either).
