GoPro Want-A-Be

Let me be straight with you.  I really want a GoPro Hero 4 camera.  I watch all the great footage that is posted on YouTube and have visions of capturing some of my own.

Then reality sets in - I don't have a spare $400 sitting around.

The answer - get a GoPro Want-A-Be for $50!  Check out this action camera from Amazon Click Here

It comes with a bunch of mounts, straps and etc. to add to your filming pleasure. (The one I purchased is not available now so I've modified this post with the one above)

So I wanted to see how good it was so I strapped it to the windshield wiper of my car and drove.

Not bad!  You can hear the strap flapping in the wind (so if I would mount it that would go away).  When I purchased my MicroSD card to record on, I didn't pay attention to the Class and purchased a Class 4 (because it had a USB and a SD adapter to use for playback).  As I read the directions the recommendation is a Class 10 card like this one for under $9 Click Here

Now I'm armed with a great wide angle, waterproof, action camera - stay tuned!
