    We have a Drift (a couple actually!). Very similar to a GoPro but much easier to use and cheaper

    We have a go pro hero silver. DP got it for me. We LOVE it. It makes everyone look great.

    It's so good. And fun. And we have it to dd to hold and got the absolute cutest videos of her. We took it with us when she went swimming and the videos are so clear and quality.

    We love our go pro. If we lost it, we'd go out tomorrow and buy another. So simple to use. Point and click and you can watch your videos on your phone! It has it's own wifi.

    My DH has a gopro strapped to his motorbike so when he drives if anyone cuts him off or is dangerous he has it on film. he has one for his RC car as well for drift videos and he has one on layby for my car dash or something, lol I have no idea about them, DH is in love with them

    (He's also strapped one to DS3's head before, funniest video ever )

    We have one, they are great. I was sceptical about whether it was worth it - but DH really wanted one so got him one for Christmas last year. We use it in the pool and beach getting home videos, have strapped to car whilst 4wd, taken it snorkelling, used as normal camera as it is so compact to take. Very clear footage and photos. Have gotten some extra accessories this year for DH for Christmas. I have definitely been converted

    Thanks all! We have iPhones and a dsrl camera so husband thinks we don't need an extra vid camera. But I have no memory left on my iPhone and by the time I get the heavy dslr camera out and use it the moment is gone.

    Any more tips so I can convince my husband???

    I am convinced! I didn't realise there were other brands. I might start goggling. I want one so bad now.

    We have a drift HD and love it.

    It mainly gets used for filming dh car races or when he is on the motorbike.
