Sam's Club Exclusive is running a 4 day lighting sale on these cameras for $74.98. Normally $99. 4 days only. Expires September 11. For Sam's Club members only.

http://www.samsclub.com/sams/vidi...0570008.ip

Comes with a 4gb memory card, selfie stick, and floating waterproof case. Also uses universal cameras accessories if you already have tripods or other camera gear.

I've been doing a lot of research on these cameras. They have great reviews on Amazon 4.5 stars. A number of YouTube reviews seem to like them as well. Definitely a great alternative to the pricier GoPros and not a China white label knockoff. I wouldn't compare them with the top of the line $400 GoPros but they are definitely better than the entry line GoPros at $200.

Ideal if you have been considering an action camera or looking for a starter for the the kids.

Doesn't look like the waterproof case will fit any of the "standard" go pro accessories. Look at the last image of the gopro and notice the compression screw on attachment slot. This is just a selfie stick/tripod mount type screw.

There are adapters available that will convert the standard quarter mount to the GoPro style. I've found them on amazon or through their website: https://vidicameras.com/product/mount-adapter/

I really don't get the draw...1080p 30fps...Amazon has a dozen or so with the same specs or better, well-reviewed at roughly 2/3 the price.

I've been looking for a good, affordable alternative to GoPro and found the ViDi. I actually have one of those white label cameras from Amazon. Very choppy quality. Sure, the specs are there on paper but I'm pretty sure their pictures are interpolated so it's not true HD. Also, the lens is plastic. If you like shooting from a potato, then the dozen Amazon ones will fit your need.

I like how the ViDi is designed. Plus, you get local USA support with a one year warranty. Amazon is good for 30 days - have fun chasing down the manufacturer.

I think this is a pretty good deal at Sam's. My .02. Thanks for listening.

The Fakespot says their highest word usage is "camera..." well, I'm not surprised. Haha. I like fakespot but sometimes their algorithm can be off.

12 Hours remaining on this deal. I ended up getting 2. They'll make some kids very happy.
