GoPro HD is one of the best action camera under $300. You should know this camera has a fantastic value for its money. It takes a bit of getting used to it but it’s damn small and it can be used for hockey, dirt bikes, skydiving or snowboarding. I’ve read some reviews on it and it seems that the 720p x 60fps resolution looks better than 1080p.
One of the best features of this camera is that it features a large variety of mounts. It has 5-15 different types of mounts. The other cool thing about it is that it’s case is waterproof.
