Can anyone recommend a budget head cam?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy a head camera to film my explores, preferably between £20-£50. I don't know much about cameras so I'm not sure what to look for really. can anyone recommend anything?

I wouldn't want to recommend anything i haven't used myself but if you can stretch to about 90 quid you could get the standard gopro

I was quite surprised at how good it is and glad i didn't wax 300 squid on the newer versions :)

 

Maybe someone else can recommend a cheaper one :)

I haven't personally used one, but from what I've heard, the SJCAM SJ4000 is about the same quality as the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition. 

 

They go for £60 on eBay, so a bit over your budget - but not by much. 

So it might be an idea to look into that. :)

I would try and get a cheap GoPro tbh, bit of a waste of time some of the other cheaper cams out there. 

I wasn't too sure about gopro as it seems like one of those things that are just as good as most alternatives but twice as expensive due to popularity

Excellent after service though, those cheap cams just dont seem to last very well. 

Ah okay I'll keep that in mind :)

      This is a quick review of my Black Rapid Sport Slim (as pictured below on the left)

      on the website (www.blackrapid.com) they say:
      my list of the main pros and cons
      pros:
      - Is very comfy and spreads the weight of the camera nicely across the body
      - camera can be taken of quickly via the Connectr (its called a Connectr its not a typo )
      - the Connectr has a screw lock gate to stop the camera coming lose
      - so many different models (even for people who like the camera hanging on the left side of there body)
      cons
      - its connects to the camera via the tripod mount so isnt that easy to change from strap to tripod but they make a Fastenr-T1 which works with most tripods (www.blackrapid.com/products/fastenr-t1)
      - if you have to run the camera will swing and it is quite annoying
      this is a video comparing some the models that black rapid make:

      here are 2 of the better youtube videos of reviewing it (there are loads out there):

      The History
      Guyzance mill was constructed in the early 19th century and was a water powered
      corn mill. It is grade 2 listed and there has been a mill on the site since 1336.
      It is a three storey stone structure on a rectangular plan of 34 feet by 20 feet.
      The Visit
      I was in the area for a 2 night road trip/break and this was one of the sites I
      had earmarked to go check out. The mill is structurally pretty sound and in
      fair shape. There is next to nothing left in there but three milling stones do remain.
      The Photos.
      Well these shots were taken with my newest acquisition - the diminutive Pentax Q.
      A camera who's sensor is smaller than a gnats left testicle... I think, phone cameras
      aside, this has the smallest sensor of any camera. Given this image quality should
      be pretty poor on paper/in theory. I also didn't help myself by not taking a tripod
      into the mill with me so was shooting hand held at very high ISO (which
      should guarantee noisy images) and hand held - which should result in
      not very sharp images as I do not have a very steady hand.
      Well without further ado here are the piccies.

      Hi guys, I have an EOS 1D mkII N which ha been working fine with my little Canon Ultrasonic 28-80 lens and also with a Tamron Aspherical 28-200.
      Today I received a Sigma 28-200, not sure what model lens it is, but it does have SAF written on it.
      The Sigma will only work on P (Auto) mode, if I try to use it on any other mode then the shutter locks and I get"Err 01" in the LCD
      The lens works fine on an old EOS1000F N film camera on all modes
      Any ideas???
