So.

I need an action camera, for car stuff and also the kids to mess about with..
Don't particularly want to spend ~400 on the latest GoPro/Sony but equally are the 60 ones any use?

I use the GoPro Hero Session (150 but might be cheaper now)

No screen, single button record, about an hour battery life. Works well on the Caterham. 100% reliable so far.

likes of that looks decent with good reviews!?

I know the Gopro will be more of a premium product but...

On further investigation that one linked to seems to be a scam, 5 star review, free memory card Laughing

Do you need something for the weekend?

You can borrow 2x SJ4000's if you want.

Ok so when lapping the internet I stumbled across this video, ideally viewed in the Youtube App.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAbtcuJkPvw&feature=youtu.be

It was filmed on one of these Garmin VIRB 360

Reading up on the reviews seems there are similar development issues that seem to blight the Garmin camera's but as an overall solution, albeit expensive this looks perfect for motorsport.

I presume a go pro suction pad mounting would work, near the front of the roof scoop on my car presumably, but do they work at 140mph Confused

Scrutes wont allow a suction mount

Yeah so I understand, would be able to sort an external bracket of some sort.

Did you watch that video in the pink, the 360 stuff is cool!
