I've interested in opinions on any go pro alternatives as can't stretch/justify the cost of one based on the amount of use it will see.

Ive had two versions of GOPro and sold both from lack of use and it not being worth owning one for the cash invested.

Then won a prize via work of a Kaiser Baas x100 which is a cheap GoPro and it’s actually really good. Worth a look for sure.

Certainly like the look and price of this brand The X150 wasn't much more ££ at 87 on Amazon.
Thanks

I got my son a SJCAM SJ4000 about 18 months ago. Was getting lots of good reviews at the time as the best budget GoPro alternative. Such that you had to be careful when buying one that you don't get a knock off version.
That's still available but there newer models too now which may be worth a look at.

I bought what I thought was a genuine SJ4000,I googled set up tips and I was glad I did as it turns out mine was a fake,it didnt have the makers brand on the front and the screws were the smaller silver ones.I got my money back but if I hadnt googled it I wouldve been blissfully unaware.

The easiest way to identify is the big SJCAM script on the front on the genuine ones.My fake one didnt have this,was a bit flimsy,didnt have a charger cable and the 3 or so page "manual" looked like it was written by an infant so caveat emptor lads and pay only with paypal.
