October 9, 2018
There are some crazy good deals and coupons available this week for action cams. Gearbest is having their September sale and a bunch of sellers on Amazon are blowing out old stock since summer is over. If you’re looking for a cheap GoPro clone or budget action cam here are the best deals this week:
The Cheapest: SooCoo C30, $39.99
This is a killer deal on a decent budget action cam that is normally priced at $70. There are a few reasons we recommend the Soocoo C30 over other cams at this price point:
- Real 1080p 60 and 2.7k 30 fps
- Real 12MP Sony sensor
- Image stabilisation
- Two batteries included
The C30 isn’t perfect and that’s why it is so cheap. Ocasionally the colour gets a bit wonky and the audio quality could be better. But if you want to spend less than $50 on a cam this is a very good option. No coupon is necessary for the deal and there’s no indication when it will end so get it quick!
Check it out the C30 on Amazon here, if the C30R is out of stock!
Our Favourite: Firefly 8SE, $120
This is our favourite sport cam we’ve tested to date. Since it is a fairly new release it does not go on sale often, and $120 is the best price we have seen it at recently. This cam has better colour reproduction, more detail, better audio quality and better low light than the SooCoo C30 so it is worth buying if you can spend the extra. Other key features include:
- Better quality 12MP Sony Sensor
- Real 4K at 30 fps and stabilised 1080p60
- 720p at 240fps slow-mo
- Touch screen user interface
- Included USB mic
If we find a coupon code to bring the price lower, we will drop it here. In our opinion this camera is well worth $120.
The Mid-range: ThiEYE T5 Edge, $95
If you can’t swing enough to buy the Firefly 8SE, the ThiEYE T5 Edge is a great choice. It features real 4K with image stabilisation, excellent colour reproduction and a simple user interface. Get the Firefly 8SE if you can, due to its better audio quality, but the T5 Edge is a great choice if you don’t have the extra to spend or you plan to use the camera in the waterproof case where audio doesn’t matter anyways. Its important specs are:
- Real 4K with image stabilisation
- Panasonic 14MP image sensor
- 1080p 60 and 720p 120 fps
Gearbest is currently doing their September Promo on Action Cams and there’s a ton of other good deals.
We’re constantly keeping our eyes out for good deals on technology and action cams. If you find one let us know on Twitter! Hopefully this helps you save a bit of money when you buy your cam. Thanks for reading.
