New POV Camera to play with

A little while back I bought my first TACTACAM 4.0 and absolutely love it! But at $340 each, I couldn't justify buying a second one right now...... So I did a little research via YouTube to see if there were any other hi-def cameras that were a little less expensive - that I liked.... after looking at a couple hundred videos ( and looking at prices ), I chose to give the ION AIR PRO LITE a try. I went onto Ebay and found one for $43 New! Got it in the mail today and took it to a local stream to test out underwater: let me tell you; if you want an awesome camera for a very low price - the ION is it!!!!! Tomorrow's goal will be to do another video comparing a GoPro Session, Tactacam 4.0, and the Ion Air Pro.... But to me atleast, the true test will be between the Tactacam and the Ion. Anyway, y'all can decide for yourself.
Till then, here's the little bit of footage I recorded today in low light and cloudy water.

Have you tried opening the file with movie maker instead of just viewing it? sometimes it'll work - and then you can edit out the corrupted part.

Went out today and finally did a little comparison video between the : Tactacan 4.0 , GoPro Session , and the Ion Air Pro Lite... Then I added a little footage from the Tactacam with the 5x zoom turned on....... The Tactacam wins it hands down, and is well worth the $340 pricetag. but the big surprise is that the $45 Ion Air Pro Lite is actually better than the $300 GoPro !

But y'all be the judge......
