I have looked very seriously at the Virb, haven't bought one yet. Did some video today with the old Kodak Play Sport. If I cant figure out how to edit with it, I'll be much closer to buying the Virb. It really is impressive, to me. I don't like the style of the gopro, especially for water.
I just posted a video yesterday that I made on Sunday plowing snow using a Kodak PlaySport, and it surprised me how well it turned out. I haven't yet figured out all the editing process, so it's sorta primitive. Added features besides price are it's waterproof, fits in your pocket, and I put it on a $3 tripod from amazon. I may just keep using this and put my fun money towards a ranger related item, but I do like the Virb if I ever jump to another.
SJCAM4000, about $100 is another good camera. Very comparable to Go Pro. You can use the same mounts too. That Kodak Play Sport did great. If you buyan SJ CAM 4000 make sure their logo is on the front. They run about $100 - $120. If the logo is not on it, it s a Pirated model. I bought one for my grandson and did a side by side comparison with my Go Pro 3 and it was very close in quality. Color was a shade or two off, but may be able to fix that in the settings. My next camera will be the SJ CAM 4000.
I bought two vivitar 785 HD from Walmart as Christmas gifts and they are quite impressive. They were around $60.00 each. We have them installed on our Ranger and have different mounts for our wakeboards, helmets, etc. I'll post some videos soon.
