Default Action Camera

Hello Guys. What are you using for a underwater camera while freediving and videos while spearfishing? Anything other than a GoPro? I'm looking for something that wouldn't break the bank. A cheap 4K camera that will suffice. Also, how are you mounting for footage?

I just started using a Garmin VIRB XE form The GPS Store. Cost of the camera is approximately $165.00 and it can display depth and location data in the video; other information is available with additional sensors, if employed. Editing softwate is free via download from Garmin. Garmin has other cameras the newest is the 360 VIRB, but at over $600.00 it is too rich from my blood.

Xaiomi Yi action camera. $75 with a case that works on all gopro accessories. I have been diving and skiing with it for 3 years and havent killed it yet. It even takes some pretty good stills if you add a light and I could drown 4 of them before I hit the price of a gopro. I wear it on a Hammerhead MV3 action mask when I dive and a cheap headstrap off amazon for other things. My only complaint about wearing it on a mask is that if im ascending quickly while freediving I cant look down or it will flood my mask.

Xiaomi does the job, can't beat the GoPro for features though.

Last year I bought a AC Robin Zed2 and very happy with that action camera. As for my opinion, good camera with image stabilizer and decent video recording. I have no claims to aquabox but fasteners rather weak. Price on amazon is approximately $107.

i've seen a few knockoffs in action via my drone community -- really can't beat a gopro -- especially if you can find a Hero 5 or 6 used for ~$100

I've got the Session 4, Session 5 and Hero 7 Black -- used the "$100 trade in" with an old ass digitial camera to get the Hero 7 Black for ~$300, i think they run that special now but for the Hero 8

DJI Osmo Action is fantastic, I like better than the GP 8
