Helmet mounted cameras are a necessity these days. For your safety, and for reminiscing your adventurous weekends, over your busy and boring workdays.
If you are a beginner, and don’t want to spend the big bucks, like me, on buying a flagship action camera, here are few value for money action cams, that might be inside your budget.
Go Pro HERO 7 Silver (19,990 ₹)
GoPro HERO 7 Silver bridges the gap between, the flagship GoPro HERO 7 Black and the cheaper HERO 7 White. Although more than 2 years since its launch, it still remains the best, in the budget segment.
GoPro HERO 7 Silver supports 4K recording at 30fps which the cheaper HERO 7 White, does not. It is waterproof up to 10 m, hence you can ride wearing it even in a heavy downpour. It has got in-camera electronic stabilisation and exposure control, touchscreen, voice control, slow-mo, time-lapse, phew!
The only drawback is its non-removable battery, which lasts for 2 hours on an average. You can buy it here on Amazon for 19,990.
Yi 4K Action Camera
Yi, backed by Xiaomi, is taking GoPro head on with a very aggressive price, although without some of the features like, voice control and water-proofing.
It’s most attractive feature is its price, that is 9990. It offers 4K recording at 30fps and has a battery life of 2 hours and is ultra-light.
You can buy it on Amazon here.
AKASO V50 Pro SE (14599 ₹)
AKASO V50 Pro SE boasts of very impressive specifications. And yes, SE stands for special edition.
It features 20 mp high resolution camera, a large 2 inch touch screen, electronic image stabilisation, adjustable view angle, and is waterproof. You can record 4K videos at 60fps. Only downside is, it is a bit heavy.
You can buy it over here on Amazon.
These are my picks, make sure they have the specifications that you want and take a decision according to your budget.
Another notable mention, available in the Indian market is Veho Muvi Kx-01. Available on amazon for 10,455. It has a 12 mp camera with 4K recording and in waterproof up to 40 m.
