Re: Lidl" go pro" on sale 35.00 euros

The quality could be decent for the money but he killer on those is that they have no stabilization whatsoever, so basically any "action" shot will be 100% shaky and almost unwatchable.

Also, expect poor audio quality.

But, depending on what you want it for 35 yoyos might be OK.

Unless you buy a couple of spare batteries with it, or by them from ebay once you have bought the camera, expect less than an hour recording time.

Tried the cheap camera route myself, and then later bought a second hand drift.
When you add up the cost of spare batteries, a charger that you can charge spare batteries while on the move on the bike and a decent mount for your bike that will actually work in a position that gives a good view I found it far cheaper to buy a secondhand drift.

The additional advantage of the drift is that you can mount it to your helmet. Your head acts as a natural gimbal so you get a far more stable image.

Yes you could possible mount the go-pro but expect you helmet to get blown about and you will have to playback your vid's with no sound.

Buy a second hand GoPro, they are very cheap for some of the older models and still perfect for 1080p @60fps.

Re: Lidl" go pro" on sale 35.00 euros

Waste of money. Even forgetting the battery life, the mounts are so shakey to be useless. I stuck a load of blue tack into mine to reduce the shaking somewhat.
I also charged it up a few days before taking it out, but when it was out, battery had died again.
You get what you pay for.
GoPro or Drift. Wasting your time otherwise.
