Sj4000 or sj5000 I got one manufactured by Qumox I think. Many copies but the genuine ones are very good and came with mounts, case and all sorts for about £40. Very good quality output too
Everything I say is my opinion, honest

Consensus, both here and elsewhere, seems to be a second hand GoPro is better than a brand new clone.

Looking on eBay there seem to be plenty of 3s and 4s for similar money to the budget clones, so thatís what Iíll do.

Cheers

Yup, nowt wrong with that, probably seen too many dodgy YouTube vids. 

Here's my first effort http://vimeo.com/100984487 

My GoPro is a Hero 3 and was what I used to film that vid. BTW the original quality/resolution is much higher than the Vimeo video

Here is a short clip from my first generation goPro, the first version they ever released. Not sure what Sam is talking about (like normal!!) - looks pretty stable to me!

I have quite an old GoPro (Hero 3?) and it's amazing but the footage I've seen from the really early ones is not good. Mine seems to have much better image stabilisation than the earlier ones, it really is remarkable and the resolution is more than adequate (supposedly HD but not 4k).

Still should be available for peanuts on ebay though. I'll try to remember to get the exact model and post on here tomorrow.

I would just get an old goPro - I got one of the original versions a while back for pennies off eBay and it works a treat plus if I were to lose it then it was a few quids fun.
