Get a cheaper Asian clone GoPro + various attachments. If you want stabilized video, you still need a gimbal whether on an action cam or P&S.amz155 wrote: ↑Feb 5th, 2017 8:40 amOf the P&S listed in the OP, which would you guys recommend? OP, did you decide what to go with yet? Interested to hear what you chose as I'm currently deciding between them too.
Leaning towards a P&S since our primary interest is taking video. But as we are going to be doing lots of active things (canyoning, trekking, snorkeling in the Galapagos), it needs to be pretty robust. Don't wanna risk taking our iPhones on excursions in case they break or get stolen (we have 5s and 6 only).
1080p is fine if you want to keep costs down on a non 4K cam. In iMovie, you can trim, splice together, speed up/slow down parts of a clip, ignore the elevated drone footage you wouldn't be doing:
It's a bit trickier doing 1st person video with a larger P&S vs a little action cam if that's what appeals to you. Remember to live in the moment and put that camera down!
