GoPro Competitor for under $100? Tempting...

If you like the idea of having a GoPro or other action cam to capture all of your daredevil stunts but don’t readily have several hundred to drop on one, the company Pyle Audio just debuted something you might be interested in.

They’re calling it quite simply the “Hi-Speed HD Camera,” and by the looks of it its primary purpose will be to enable to you take photos and 120fps slow motion action cam footage on the cheap.

Under the hood, the camera boasts a 12-megapixel CMOS image sensor (no word on size) capable of recording 1080p Full HD video at 120fps, a 2.5-inch touch screen LCD and 4X digital zoom capability. And like the GoPro, it comes with a WiFi remote, waterproof case and multiple mounts/clips that’ll let you strap the camera to any number of things.

Obviously we’ll have to see it in action (no pun intended) before we can judge just how good the camera is, but we still haven’t covered the best part of the camera: the price. The camera is available in black, blue, grey, red and silver for only $99.99 from the Pyle Audio website (down as of this writing).

There is also "Wasp Cam"

Live to Play Sports (Norco) distributes them, I had a PK about this product a few days ago and I can tell you it has some very cool features.
Not meant to compete against the tits out version of the GoPro, but their cheaper price points could kill it.

These prices are getting ridiculous.

thought i'd use this thread for this question...looking at getting a gopro to take on my travels next year

looking for something that will be suitable for all types of filming/pictures. 

right now looking at either the 3 black edition or the 3+ black edition, they seem to be at the same price point......i was also looking at the silver 3+

thoughts? as mentioned, this will be a secondary camera to our DSLR that will be used for video and water/rugged pictures

thanks
