Amazon is your alternative. Check 'Other Sellers on Amazon'. A lot of item's will have different sellers that don't charge a sale tax.

Take for example this GoPro HERO5

The default one will be the first one, however, the second one has no sales tax. Those tax laws really only apply for items sold and shipped by Amazon. Items sold by other sellers and shipped through Amazon aren't necessarily affected. You'll receive the same protections as long as its a 'Prime' item. I live in the Bay Area where our sales tax is 10% so this helps a lot.

GoPro's are tough. The case can take up 10,000 lbs/sqin.

You can buy a GoPro HERO5 Black that comes with a crush resistance case now at:

u/JohnnyZondo · 4 pointsr/VideoEditing

This plus this could give you a limited version of that.

Some assembly required.

with some extra work you might be able to fix an old junky tripod head to the lamp and use the tripod handle for some extra control, but I think the natural movement of your hand may feel more organic.

If the lamp springs are strong then even if you let go the camera should stay in relatively the same position.

Between those price points, it's best to stick with the GoPros. You're beyond the price I would pay for any sort of knock off action camera, even if they're marketing slightly better features. The drawbacks of those just aren't worth it. If I were you, I would go with a GoPro Hero5 Black, that does up to 4K30 video, or a Hero6 Black if you can stretch the budget by another $25, giving you 4K60 or 1080p240.

Apologies if this change has been around for a while - been in the market for a GoPro and waiting to see what new ones come out this month!

I personally have a Hero3 I won five years ago in a video contest, Crosstour Action Camera I use for my rear on my commuter (when I remember to charge it). And for my race bike I have my Fly6(ce), but I will use it on my commuter if I forget to charge my other rear camera.

Here is a list of common ones:

Inexpensive (< $100)

  1. AKASO Action Camera 1080P HD EK5000 amazon link

  • Handlebar and Helmet Mount included, very low quality video

  1. Drift Stealth 2 amazon link

  • Low light is not great, otherwise fine camera

  1. Crosstour Action Camera amazon link

  2. Yi Lite amazon link

    Mid Range ($100-250)

  3. Contour ROAM2 Waterproof Video Camera amazon link

  4. Yi 4K Action Camera amazon link

  5. Garmin Virb Elite amazon link

  6. Sony HDRAS100V/W amazon link

  7. GoPro Session amazon link

    High End ($250+)

  8. GoPro HERO5 Black amazon link

  • Really, any of the GoPros will probably do very well. They aren't know to have the best battery life, though

Amazon has had them for as low as $289 in the US (235 Euros), and prices look similar.

So, maybe?

u/Tavataar · 1 pointr/motorcycles

GoPro Hero 5 is only $250. Grab some Sugru and attach to the chin of your helmet.

GoPro Hero 5 Session or GoPro Hero 5 Black?

Some factors to consider:

  • Complete amateur here when it comes to cameras.

  • Want to get one of these as a birthday present for a very close friend who is also my travelling & trekking buddy

  • We currently use my One Plus 3T phone for taking pics but I'd like to better quality selfies, pics and, perhaps, videos. Priority is on taking great pics. Videos are just a plus. This is all for personal use though mind you.

  • I have looked at other types of cameras like Mirrorless cameras and DSLRs but those seem either too expensive or impractical for lugging around when trekking. The weatherproofing on the GoPro is a definite plus as well.

  • I'm on a budget and the Hero 5 Black seems really expensive but I'm not averse to the idea of saving up more for it if it really makes a difference in photo quality over the Hero 5 Session.

  • Just throwing this out there: I’ll be ordering the GoPro via a friend who’s based in the UK and will be travelling back next month to my country (no GoPro store or official dealer where I live and the models available aren’t exactly reliable or cheap since they come with the extra premium price. Hence why I’m ordering it from abroad). Just to give you guys some context, the current price of the GoPro Hero 5 Black represents approximately 60% of my monthly paycheck.

    I've gone through the Sidebars, FAQs & searched a bit around on this subreddit on this particular topic and unfortunately I'm still not sure what to go for. So any information on this will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

Link, it's $100 more.

u/bellboy2088 · 1 pointr/gopro


As far as I can tell there isn't a music edition for the Hero 5 but there was one for the Hero 4. They are about the same price.

Which one would you recommend for me given I am going to be using it primarily to record live music?


u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/gopro

Given the current prices (CAD) prices, is the Hero 2018 the best bang for the buck? (I'm not a professional photographer, and I plan on having a camera that I can use for both Snowboarding and photos/videos while travelling).


GoPro HERO 2018 - $ 236 with an extra battery

GoPro Hero 7 Silver - $ 319 with the starter kit (floating stick, head strap + case)

GoPro Hero 5 Black - $ 382 (just the camera)


From what my research showed me, it looks like:

  • The HERO won't do 4K. The other 2 will do 4K @ 30 FPS
  • Accessories for all 3 are equally widely available
  • The Hero 7 Silver is the only one with no removable battery
  • All of the 3 are water-resistant (@10 meters) without a case
  • The sound quality of all of them are comparable (despite the number of mics varying between 2 and 3)
  • All of them have E.I.S, but it looks like the Hero Silver 7 is slightly better, given the better processor
  • All of them have voice controls
  • Hero 5 Black is the only 12 MP camera, with the other two having 10 MP

    ALSO: Is it true that the HERO 2018 is a firmware crippled Hero 5 Black? Can I then flash a Hero 5 Black firmware on it and have the exact same camera?


    Am I missing something important here?

    It looks like if I don't care about 4k (which I don't cause all of my videos go to Google Photos anyway, which compresses them because I have a free account) the Hero 2018 is a clear winner, even over the silver, because it has a removable battery.

The c922 is shit, don't get it. It was a strategic marketing ploy to sell more of the same camera for twice the price. The c920 is the best USB cam out there for the price. The Brio is even worse, don't bother IMO.

Secondly, a camera is only as good as your lighting. You need to be very well lit in order for the camera to do it's job. USB cameras don't do well in low light.

I would say the best option that doesn't involve dropping big bucks on a camcorder or a DSLR is a GoProHero + Cam Link. The only extra thing you need is a $20 boom arm and a $20 power supply for the gopro so you don't run on batteries. You can set gopro's to have a narrow FOV if the fish eye look isn't your thing. GoPro Hero 5 Black is $200 on amazon. With the other accessories that puts you at around $400 for the whole thing. Not bad. A nice 1080p60fps camera that is decently downscaled to 720p and looks decent on stream. But again, lighting is key.

u/lord_william_j · 1 pointr/letsplay

If you check out my channels latest video I use the C920 and to me looks nice and crisp. I use my own lighting which helps an f ton for the c920 (2 desk lamps with L.E.D bulbs). Here's my settings for my C920 if you're interested.

For filming other things and what not, it's gonna be pretty expensive if you want quality recordings, just having a gander on something I'd use, might cost upwards of $600 AUD. But most cameras can easily work with OBS, either via a capture card or it's in built functionality.

Edit: If I was gonna buy a camera for on the go stuff I'd go for this and probably this for mic and I'd probably count that as mid tier equipment at most.

u/cocaine_enema · 1 pointr/skiing

What do you mean by curved mount for the hero?

If I were to get this

what mount should I get?

u/kabbage123 · 0 pointsr/videography

Honestly, if you aren't willing to buy used, then there aren't many options in your budget. The FZ1000 is not a good camera for capturing theater due to a 30 minute recording limit. Almost every DSLR/DSLM in this price-range has the same limitation due to a tax classification issue of being a 'camcorder' vs. a still camera.

You probably are better off with a GoPro Hero 5 unless you don't mind starting the camera up again after 30 minutes every time. Or an old cell phone even.

u/StimulatorCam · 0 pointsr/videos

The Hero 4 Silver is $335 USD on Amazon.

Edit: And the Hero 4 Black is $377.
