    GoPro alternatives?

    As the title says, whats your favorite cake icing flavor? Oh..umm I mean, what is a good alternative to dropping 200+ on a GoPro? I am not worried about super top of the line high speed 3d images being transmitted directed into my brain, or with mounting options. Just something decent that I can rig a mount for without that hefty "half the cost of my Slash" price tag. Any suggestions?

    I run a couple of 808 cameras off ebay for 13$ shipped from Hong Kong. They are aka keychain cameras. They take a bit of a beating too.

    I'm liking those generic key chain cams! I thought about an old cell phone but my old blackberry is being used by my 70 yr old mother.

    That Associated camera looks cool but it's quite pricey... I will be picking up an HD 720p Dice Mini Camera from HobbyPartz. Under $40. I just need to be creative on my mounting solution.

    HD Dice cam is decent for the money
