which of these 3 "action cams" for a first timer?
Not trying to break the bank. 4K is a nice to have, but in reality 1080P/60 would be the minimum requirement. I'm not a huge thrill seeker, so this is definitely an occasional use camera. The excursions im going on provide helmets with mounts for your own action cam.
I already have a fuji underwater cam but requires at least one-hand operation. I'm looking for an action can that is either voice controlled or has a wrist-mounted wireless remote.
I've narrowed it down to 3...
1) $50 "chinese brand" 4K action cam
Seems like it fits the bill. I just dont want to record everything only to find out it looks like I used a potato cam.
2) gopro hero 5 black
Not looking to buy the most recent/expensive gopro, so going back a few generations, this seems to have the features i need.
Thing is, im not sure if the LCD screen is required in my case. I wont be composing any shots, i already have my fuji camera for that. Which leads me towards the hero 5 session without lcd screen
3) gopro hero session 5
Again, trying to save money by going with an older model. The absense of the lcd screen is nice as it keeps the form factor small. But in comparison the the super cheap chinese brand action cam... Is the price premium worth it?
Thanks to all who provide their feedback
