Those cheapo "action" cameras -- any good?

Well?

£50 max budget here probably. Has anyone got anything to say?

I bought the SJ4000 a couple of years ago. It’s really good, quality seems indistinguishable from the GoPro/more expensive versions around that time. Battery life isn’t ideal but build quality is fine.

This guy does pretty comprehensive reviews of loads of them:

Would this be for cycling by any chance?

Thanks for this!

How could you guess! Also for other stuff – I remember going to Malaysia a few years ago and thought it would be cool to have an underwater camera for the nice fishes but never got around to it.

(Not for commuting, but wanna take time-lapse videos of my rides and see if I can do something cool with them. And going to Majorca seems like a good place to try it out maybe).
