I have an SJCAM M10, the little cube type one. It cost me about £30. So far I have only had a small play about with it, but I am bloody impressed with
it for the money.
I've never used a GoPro so can't compare, but I would certainly recommend the M10.

SJCAM SJ4000. It looks very similar to a GoPro. And if you read some of the online review it scores highly against it too.
I like it so much I have three! They make great dash cams and also great cameras for blatting in the kit car as I can turn it on and off remotely by
turning the power feed to it on and off from a switch on the centre console.
I got an SJCAM SJ4000 for a recent European road trip and it was spot on. From what I understand the SJ is the best GOPro copy. With the other non
branded ones you'll probably be taking a risk and may end up buying twice. SJ was less than £70 with every extra including carry case, spare
batteries, chargers, memory cards etc etc.

SJ 5000 wifi, fantastic piece of kit.
Different chip to the 4000 series which gives a slightly crisper image at high speed
Mine's the wifi version too, which basically means you can connect / control it through your smart phone. Very handy to make sure you've
got the view angle correct especially if mounting it somewhere where you can't see the rear screen ie front bumper.
Could be a good cheap option. It won't have wifi I guess so bit more difficult to position / control in some situations. Comes with a 4GB card
but can you fit a bigger one? The SJ will take a 32GB card, when set to 720 definition (which is very good TBH) will give about 10hrs of continuos
footage, which was ideal for my road trip.
Just be careful geting an SJ model, there are lots of fake ones.
Ive also heard good things about the Mobious cameras.
Also, if you want something new/clever/gimicy, the Samsung Gear 360 looks superb, and reasonably priced for what it is.

I use the Garmin Virb, has built in GPS also for those all important overlays.
The speed on the overlay doesn't seem very accurate on that, when you're holding a steady speed round a corner it seems about 10mph+
Or is your dash speedo not calibrated right?
Be interesting to see what it says when you are sat at a constant speed
I use a gopro hero3 silver, but will be buying an SJcam next, purely because of the price.
Watch some videos on youtube that compare the two and then tell me the gopro is worth 3 times the SJ
Ignore my Koso dash, it is playing up because I lost one of the magnets and not got round to sorting that.
The Garmin GPS struggles to keep up with the rapid changes over short distances on this sprint track. On the road or bigger circuits when compared to
my sat nav it is spot on. Also the YouTube quality does not give the picture quality justice when watched on my iMac it is so sharp.

I use a Mobius ActionCam, does the job for a very reasonable price. Hasn't had a hardware update in
a while though so its max resolution/fps of 1080P30 and 720P60 are starting to look a little out of date.
hope that helps
