GoPro alternatives?

Hey -

Any decent alternatives to the GoPro out there? I don’t mind spending the $ on a Hero 7/8 but not too comfortable with having the kids use it, drop it etc. I’d feel better with something more replaceable but hate giving up true waterproof and that awesome vid quality.

Cheers

Dji Osmo Action is the closest competitor but not that cheap as well. It's one of the few that competes against Gopros for stabilization quality. Other than that, Yi 4k+ and similar ones are a lot cheaper but not waterproof.

You can get a frame type cage for the gopro 7 or 8 if you want something to help protect against knocks.

If you're giving it to kids then this will work

I have something similar, works fine. Used it to snorkel a couple of years ago in the Caribbean and I was pretty happy with the video quality. You can find a ton of this type of camera on eBay and Amazon.
c'mon get happy!
