What Action Camera?

Does anyone know what camera to go for?

I have been looking at the GoPro and the Drift x170.

I would like to mount it on my A-frame.

Thanks

I've got an X170 and have it mounted on my A-frame.

Here is a sample:

I run a Go-pro HD - very impressive bit of kit, use it on my RIB and Ski, takes fantastic pics at 75mph, bouncing round, wave jumping - dos'nt phase it. If you watch the likes of top gear your'll see many Go-pros clamped to cars inside and out

i have an oregon scientific atck9 (i think thats it) it dos a nice job on my sailing skiff, for us the main draw was that it has a gps chip in it that links to google maps so we can see how fast we were going and the route taken, good for training being able to see what makes a difference in speed etc.

Thanks for the info, at the moment the gopro looks by far the best however the Drift x170 is only 99 and has an LCD screen to line up the shot and it also comes with quite a few mounts etc.

I would like to get this up and running for Priory Bay so looking to order in the next few days and I'm tempted to go for the Drift x170?

Great choice but pay that bit extra and get the hd version

Go-Pro - The pure fact that currently 70 TV shows are using it for Broadcast quality tv is enough recommendation for anyone. If you watch "deadliest catch" on discovery a lot of that footage is filmed on a go pro.

here is some footage I took last month
