Here are some best deals action cameras and good alternatives of GoPro cams:-
- Yi 4k+ Camera:- Yi 4k+ camera has many advanced technologies. It comes with an IMX377 12MP image sensor, 4K recording, a broken screen, 7 glass lens, and long battery life.
This camera is not at all as the name calls Yi 4k to produce images and videos in a very high quality which you can’t imagine. Its price is half of the GoPro cam. The only cons are that there is no extra accessories and waterproof housing in it, you have to buy yourself.
- Sony FDR X3000R:- Sony FDR X3000 takes your action videos on a new level with 4k resolution. A smartphone app, called Play Memories that can be connected with the Sony FDR X3000R via the built-in wifi that runs in a very similar way to the remote. It comes with a new Zeiss Tessar wide-angle lens and a top video quality. The cons of this cam are shorter battery life and high price.
- Polaroid Cube:- Polaroid cube is a pocket-size camera with HD video recorder and 6 mp camera. Its a smaller alternative of GoPro you can buy. At 1080p, the quality is not as much as the other cameras have. It has only one button to take photos, videos, turn on, and turn off the camera. It’s very cheap. The cons of that camera are that it has a small battery and limited features.
- SJCAM SJ7 Star:- SJCAM SJ7 Star is the first metal body camera from SJCAM. It also has 4K recording. We can take the best quality videos from this cam.
SJCAM is made of aluminum and its durable. It has a very good price and decent image stabilization. The cons of this camera are that its aluminum body gets hot quickly and no tripod mount threading.
5.CAMPARK 4K action camera:- If you want a waterproof and affordable camera, CAMPARK 4K gives you everything. It comes with a wi-fi remote control, 16mp sensor, and waterproof capabilities. Its a good option against GoPro. It has a good HD video quality, two rechargeable batteries, and mounting accessories kit.
These are some alternatives action cameras of GoPro. I will suggest trying once if you want a better option.
