    Got $100, what action camera to get?

    Alright so I got $100 and I plan to get a proline blockbuster body for sl4sh but what action camera should I get for $100 or less? I like the 1080p HD ones but I want to see if anyone has owned any of the cheaper than gopro ones. What do yall suggest?

    One camera i suggest like a gopro is the emerson action camera for $50. You can adjust its image quality really easily and you can mount it to your car really fast. I think thats the best for the price
    Time to burn some nitro!

    The Emerson sounds like a good deal at $41. Gives me plenty of room to buy the proline body and upgrades to the sl4sh as well. I also like that the Emerson is name brand. Anybody else?

    My brother got the Emerson one, he broke the clip off while on a dirtbike... I cant find just the waterproof case without buying a whole new camera. My point is double check you can get parts

    Do you know where he broke the clip? I can reinforce it if need be.

    Alright so I'm gonna settle on this: http://m.ebay.com/itm/141342629698?nav=SEARCH
    But I am waiting till I get an email back with an answer as I have no idea what kind of mount it has. There is also little info in the description. Kinda bothers me but I wont buy unless I get an email back.

    Ok, they never emailed me back so imma go with an Ematic which is California company. Its a 1080p with 30 fps and everything I need. I'll let yall know what I think of it when it comes in. For $64, its worth a shot.
