Tanga has a cheap GoPro style clone for $18. Claims 1080P and includes an 8GB MicroSD card and waterproof case. Can't tell if it has HDMI support. Warranty is only 60 days.

Oddly, it includes bandages. Applause

Website says it's Koolulu brand. I see that various places for around $30. No real reviews, though. Probably worth it just for a spare set of accessories for my other GoPro-style camera...

Wait huh, this price INCLUDES the camera itself??? LOL wow

60 day warranty, no surprise...

But for this price, why not, as worst the accessories have to work right...

Right? 😂🤣😁

I have bought action cams (slightly more 25-30) and they did have 1080p But the sensors are usually not very good therefor terrible in low light BUT in the daytime they are serviceable and take decent pictures

So

While i dont vouch for this camera it is possible to get a budget one that has 1080 functionality while also being in this price range, hopefully this is one of those cams (so many companies are buying "generics" in china, branding and reselling, its hard to keep count) im sure some outlets are stuck with tons of these sitting in their warehouse marking them down trying to make space, perhaps this is on the scale of the ones i have bought

Or


it could be a fugazi, complete junk


Imo unless you know exactly what your buying pass, everytime

I bought this. It's complete junk.

1) It records at 1280x960, not the claimed 1920x1080. It's not a 1080p camera.

2) The view angle is nowhere near 170 degrees.

3) The image is terribly noisy.

4) The included SD card is a joke. It's so slow that your videos will skip, and it will take forever to transfer to your computer (I used a USB 2.0 MicroSD reader).

5) It's not even worth it for the accessories. It's like they just grabbed a handful of random junk and tossed it in with the thing. No suction cup. One of the screw-in adapters doesn't even actually mate to anything.

Here are screen shots from this Koolulu P.O.S., along with a screenshot from the recent Slickdeal 4k Powerextra (at 1080p, not 4k):

Indeed the quality is awful. It's unusable just in terms of contrast and light sensitivity. Mine washes out to total white most of the time. 'm returning it.
