super cheap video cameras......? ? ?

Thu Feb 14, 2013 7:25 pm

going on a short sight seeing tour up north and doing a helicopter fly by of NH mountains and small towns.. want to bring a "cheap" video camera with me to capture the sights. what i mean by "cheap" is $50 or less. a camera that yields acceptable results and can be hooked up to a tv with audio/video cable. Don't want to invest much but want results that are "very watchable" on my tv.

Consider hiring a better camera for the day

Don't most people just use their phones today?

Mine shoots in slow or fast motion, too. They even sell small tripods for'em. Can't zoom with optical zoom, though. And that can matter.

Yes, if this is some kind of special event rather than just the kind of thing you do every weekend for kicks, you want the best record possible. Or you could invest in a decent digital camera with a video facility, so you've got something for future use.

But $50? I don't think so.
