Sport Camera

I'm looking at buying a camera to mount on the bike. I was looking at GoPro but for few the times I will use it, it's a bit too pricy. I was looking at another one, sometimes referred to as "GoPro Killer". It's pretty inexpensive. Does anyone have one ?/ Opinions ??

The gopro's are a fantastic camera but like you I didn't or don't want to spend that kind of money for a camera I'd only use a few times. I wound up buying a Contour Roam. It's a pretty basic camera but it takes a good video. I got it a few years ago for under $150. Amazon gas them alil cheaper than that now

wallyworld has a GoPro for 129. Saw it in the flyer yesterday.
Not a black or silver, probably a older version, but ought to get the job done.

I want to check out the Garmin one that can be bluetoothed and cotrolled on one of their GPS units. Can imagine what that set up costs.

I reject your reality, and replace it with my own..

Polaroid just came out with one for $99. Not endorsing it as I have never seen one, just throwing it out there. It is called a Cube.

Subscribed. I have a GoPro, but wouldn't mind a second angle sometimes. Love the gopro, but they are pricey.

I would look for a used one. Picked up a Silver 3 at a decent price. Should be more out there since the 4 just came out.

I have a Go Pro Black Edition. Yes it's expensive but the hd quality is awesome especially if using it with motion shots. I haven't tried it on my RG but use it regularly when riding my dirt bikes. Have also used it zip lining and parasailing with great results. Next up will be trying it out while bungee jumping. That one has me a bit nervous.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.
