    Finally a decent 1080p Action cam for less then $100

    I currently have a Emerson 720p action cam which I bought for 30 bucks....and its pretty much crap.

    I subscribe to a youtube channel which does a lot of camera reviews and his recent video has fit my bill and probably several others.

    The best action camera under $100. The SJ1000 budget 1080p multi-purpose waterproof action cam. - YouTube

    Purchase Location:
    12m 1080p waterproof diving bike helmet car mini | eBay

    I'm also interested in these cheap chinese action cameras. It is starting to become an interesting area. SJ1000 and the Mobius (pre-release state as of yet) are very interesting indeed. What I want to see is the SJ 1000 in action on a MTB with its stock bike mounter. If anyone finds one, please share!

    OP: do you mind, if I also post some Mobius ones? Its firmware is still in development, but there are a few good videos already. Also, no one is selling as of yet, because the developer dont want people to get a pre-release model... It will cost around 80$.

    Just a quick update: I've ordered the mobius at 60$ with international free shipping from one of two verified sellers: eletoponline365

    I've also ordered a helmet mount as I normally don't like that ball junction system. They do work, but the ones that do cost a bit more than these ones being sold...

    Also worth mentioning: the sj1000 is looking good but lots of owners are frustrated with the included mounting systems. The mobius might perform better in this field.
    Also, the mobius is still missing a proper water and dustproof protective case.

    Will post more info on the mount Ive ordered once I get home.

    Ok, so here is the mount holder: Helmet Fixed Mount for HD Mini DVR 808 Camera 11 18 26 DR32 Recorder Cam | eBay



    Please not that there is a special "socket" underneath that 808 camera in that photo. The Mobius has hits own socket for a standard tripod screw, so any other mount holder using this system should work.
