    if anyone is interested in getting an alcheapo action camera like a gopro but don't
    know what to get these are ok .

    i just use it in 720P as i don't realy have a big enough screen in the house to warrant
    1080P.

    it ain't no gopro but it dose the job for $50 to your door the only thing i don't like is lack
    of sound , here's a short vid of my humble boat .



    cheers TAC .

    It's good clear video TAC and you could always add some commentary or even a bit of music with an editing program.

    What brand of camera is it - I've been looking for a cheapie to carry in my kayak.

    That's a great score for $50 delivered- I agree about the sound quality but excellent video.
    I have the GoPro Hero + LCD and its great IMHO for a fraction of the Hero 3/4 and takes great piccies aswell as videos. I like it because it got the viewfinder I hate taking video when I cannot see what the hell I am looking at, esp underwater.

    Have got a few good clips from last years trip to Daydream Island but we didn't fish while we were there- the charter was cancelled due to "unforseen circumstances" but I got some good clipz while we were snorkelling and feeding the reef fish.
    I will try to dig them up and upload them.

    I'll stay with my easy to use video glasses. They do a top job for me.
