If you want to "test the waters" without a huge cash outlay, Vivitar makes an inexpensive body camera. Walmart had 'em on sale the other day for $25, including software, handlebar mount, clip mount and a neck strap. It will even take time-lapse shots, too. I got one for my gf for Christmas. She's waiting on better weather to try it out on a ride.Always wanted to buy a GoPro but never got around to it. I've heard there are other ones on the market that are almost as good for a chunk less of the price though. How do you guys feel the GoPro compares to the regular action cams ?
