Hey guys and gals

Like the title says I am a newb that needs help choosing my first action cam. I have been reading up on them for a while and I am stuck on the fence about which one I should get.

I will be using the camera for basically everything except extreme sports. Going diving in the ocean, swimming in pools, dash cam on car and motorcycle, family events/vacations etc.

The following is the cameras that I had narrowed it down to:

Xiaomi Yi 4K - about $240 and from what I can see is the best overall camera
SJCam SJ7 - about $220 - $240 is probably equally as good as the Yi 4k but overheats and has problems
SJCam SJ6 - about $200 is a great camera but for $40 extra I may as well get a newer and better model

Of course if you have any other suggestions that I might have missed please feel free to share with me. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Chris

why would you come to GOPRO forum asking what other camera you could get? :D

anyway, if you have the budget , get gopro . if not, Xiaomi YI or Xiaomi MIJIA 4k are great choice too

Since we are in the Other camera section let me toss in the Yi Lite they added the touch screen. it is a nice choice to conceder? Also keep in mind a thread down is almost the same questions asked I will say do not forget to look into the Session Models.

Look at the garmin camera. A year or two back it was getting better reviews. I was looking. Kinda lost the itch.
