    Hello, guys. Going to buy my first action camera. Previously, I used to make videos on my IPhone (firstly 5s, then 6) and was unsatisfied by it. After dozens of reviews, I decided to buy a camera. It was a discovery for me to know that there are cheaper models than GoPro. Does anybody here wear them? Share your experience, please, or recommend any good model.

    Go with GoPro and call it a day. A little more expensive, but at the end, you get what you pay for.

    Maybe the Xiaomi Yi or how it was called is an alternative for you? It's a way cheaper and is fine. Maybe not that professional as Gopro but good :)

    If you have OPO and going to buy OP3, You could just use OPO as action camera :)

    Infinity mode :p But yeah it would suck because the exposure wouldn't be stable, at points the video would be dark as it's filming the sky and other places it's overexposed. But GoPro is the way to go if you want quality and money isn't the problem. There are cams like SJ4000 as you might already know, but you never know how long they'll work.

    I like the Gopro Session because you can put it in your mouth while swimming and surfing. And it's cheap , only $180

    I have the xiaomi yi cam and it is bindblowing! There is one bad thing. That is that there no LCD screen on it. But connecting tot your smartphone is very easy
