best camera under $30usd
« on: September 26, 2016, 09:10:53 am »
i'm really poor and spending $30 for me is like the average person spending $200 i already own a good class 10 32gb sd card but i have just started doing youtube videos and wanted to get something other then a webcam that i can take with me to film stuff

i see a  ton of action cameras and other small cameras on ebay all the time for less then $35 free shipping i'm not sure what would be the best to pickup i don't really need anything fancy

The Xiaomi action cams are good value if you can stretch the budget a little higher
EDIT: actually, all the action cams will take microSD and not the SD you have. (unless you meant microsd)

Have you looked at local classifieds for second hand webcams?

"I'm really poor"

Rather than spending the 30 dollars to be poorer, you can invest it in you so you can make a return and be less poorer ?

You can try an SJCAM. But there are a lot of knock-offs so you can't tell if the quality is the best. As far as being "poor", I'm not sure what your background is, but if you are worried about whether to spend $30, 50 or 80... it is an issue of whether you want something that will last and perform well, or do you want it to break in a year and have to pay again and again? If you plan on abusing the camera, buy a cheap one. But Remember, all these are far cheaper than GoPro's already.

I would be far more concerned not about the price, but about whether I am getting a genuine camera and the value for money. So if I see 2 SJCAM and both are $60, and I see another for $30, which is real? I would pay $60 for the real one and $30 for the lower quality fake, but be very upset if I got scammed into paying $60 for the fake. That should worry you more than a few bucks.

More important is what you want to do with it, what are your technical requirement, then you consider the price, then you see if in your defined price range, there are product that fit your requirement. If no, make one and you will be rich.  :-DD

Look at the second hand market, you can probably get a cheap vlogging camera like Flip Video, Sony Bloggie, Kodak Playsport / Zi6 / Zi8.
