The best price for this HD Action camera also available for click and collect customers

It should be noted that this is the 'White' model, which is inferior to the Silver and Black editions. Also rumors have it that GoPro are releasing a new one budget GoPro Hero soon, which is similar but updated, along with the GoPro Hero 4.

The reason for price drop.

Nevertheless if you are not chasing for the latest, it is still a good price, but personally would go for the silver edition.

sigh...
another week, another GoPro 'best price' deal

except, according to this, just as cheap (actually 99p less) elsewhere

very happy with my SJ4000. Make the smart choice and get one for £50-£70.

YIP another £40 (25%) and you get a silver hero3+, 100% better camera. Go Black and you get another 100% better camera but you are looking at £300 ish.

grate review good camera but learnt my lesson, wait a week or two and but the better as you will only live to regret it and but the better anyway, costing you more that the wait. Still this is my choice.

I sent my SJ4000 back after it destroyed my Sandisk ultra 64gb card.

Great price, although the Hero 4 is out Oct 5th!!!

you can get them for just over £40 now, the software updates are firmware based, features, bug fixing etc. not sure about video and audio quality.

supports max 32GB

I was so close to buying an SJ4000 last week - now I know I can get a GoPro Hero 4 for £100 there's not a chance of that!

Not such a great deal. The newer Go Pro (white equivalent) is even cheaper - £100 and has marginally better specs than this one.

supports max 32GB



i think it only takes up to 32gb, anything over that size and you take the risk, i only use 32gb cards as that is what it states in the manual so i think Zub screwed up his won camera

Fancy posting that - sure it said supports up to 32gb. How did it destroy card? Surely you send card back saying faulty and keep camera and use with a 32gb or is that just me using too much common sense.

p.s. would suggest buying spare battery for SJ4000 as cheap....

haha you're joking right?

GoPro Hero 4 will be around £350 - this has significant improvements over previous models.

The GoPro Hero will be around £130 - this is just a more compact design of the GoPro 3 White edition, which has no new features.

What are you talking about? The GoPro Hero is £100!

That's not a go pro hero 4 for £100 though is it?

, no but it's not £130. That's the RRP, so you'll get it for a less, eg Argos spend £100 get £10 voucher etc. Main real problem with it though is you don't get WIFI control so can't use a bank of them for bullet time effect.

So that is the GoPro Hero, still not the GoPro 4 and those were estimate without even looking!

The GoPro 4 is no where near £100 X)


I must say though, props to GoPro for the budget model. It makes it more affordable for everyone to own a GoPro now, especially since they'll be even cheaper second-hand. I can certainly see them selling rather well on release!

Exactly, the hero and hero 4 are miles apart

But Hero is not mile apart from 3 white for 30% less so maybe it's better for monay to invest in hero versus hero3 white...

Or just buy an sj4000 like he was going to, great Camera for the price

if its no WiFi on the budget model, the £100 one, how would I see what's going to be recorded? Can the screen still be attached to it?

thanks

they've announced a £100 go pro, budget model i suppose, unsure of specs but its obviously not going to match those of the hero 4

I bought mine for around £60 from Banggood it comes complete with waterproof case and bike mount, their are reviews, videos and photos from customers on the page, they also accept PayPal use code NEWBG for 5% discount in your shopping cart on the right side.
I recommend Banggood, delivery took less than a week.

I got my sj400 from aliexpress, came with loads of mounts, casing, helmet strap etc, plenty of sellers on the there

I've just got a SJ4000 from Fox Offer with a spare battery for £55.......arrived with in 10 days no issues.
foxoffer.com/sj4…tml

Didn't want to spend Gopro money on something that will probably get used a few times.

I have put it on my road bike to film my bike rides and generally picture quality is ok when watching on a mobile device but on a bigger screen it struggles.

One thing to mention that I didn't read until I had an issue and this is a problem with Go Pros and the SJ4000 is that if you are using it close to a GPS device the camera emits a lot of RF noise so cause GPS units to not lock on to satellites. My camera sites under my Garmin 800 which would not lock onto a satellite when the camera was switched on.

This is easily solved.........after watching a few youtube video the answer is to wrap it in foil. I made an outer skin for the camera from a foil baking tray which does the job.

of course
camerapricebuster.co.uk/GoP…ion

Does this basic GoPro (the £99.99 one) have an LCD screen at the back? I know the SJ4000 has, but just need to understand if this GoPro does.

Cold, white edition and it's not even the plus version which is buggy and requires updates
