Best Bang For Your Buck? Vivitar 787HD

I picked up a Vivitar 787HD on a whim a couple weeks ago, as a cheap alternative to a GoPro. I am quite impressed with it actually! It records full 1080p videos, and came with an outrageous amount of mounts. What is most impressive, is that I bought it on sale for $39.99; Walmart right now has it back to $49.99 (still worth it).

I recorded a short test ride video to demonstrate it. I do hope to tweak the mounts to get the most out of the cam and utilize my Zoom H1 in tandem with it for high quality sound. Check out my video here:

I've been thinking that it would be cool to see a vlog from the perspective of a VN750 rider. It will be neat to see what you do with it!

Nice choice of song too. I love seeing videos of where other guys and gals are riding. Looks so much different that it does here.

I have the GoPro Hero Black 3+ ninja. I'll check this one out for sure. Does yours go under water? I had mine in the Marianas trench the other day.

That is pretty impressive. I may have to pick one of those up. My fovorite thing about the GoPro is you can do 240 Frames per second and get some awesome slow motion shots. The 720p is at 120 FPS 1080P 60 or 100FPS

Yup, came with waterproof case, helmet mount, arm mount, surf-board mount, and handlebar mount!

Here is the latest. I wanted to try out a couple different angles, so I bumped the quality down for the time being until I get a larger memory card. Also started playing with recording sound on deck with my Zoom H1. I think I had the levels too low to capture the full sound, but its a start.

Let me know what you guys think!

Good music again.

There was a weird effect when you had the camera behind you and went over some bumps and the buildings and sky looked kinda wavy. Trippy...
