Need help- a good alternative for a GoPro, for 10 year old Nephew gift


I have a 10-year-old nephew whose birthday is next week and I don't want to drop the money on a real GoPro. I feel like he's too young and may the misplace, lose, or break this action camera.

I want to start him out with something more entry level, and I know how good we all are at finding deals. Figured I'd open it up and see if anybody had a suggestion. Bonus points for being available on Amazon since I'm running out of time to have it shipped LOL.

thank you all! You'll make a 10 year old boy a happy kid!


I can’t find my old 1080p SJCam on Amazon any more, but there are several 4K SJCams for $50-60. Mine was a little less than that, but it’s still going strong after a year or two on my bike and a lot of use during the pandemic.

According to the reviewers, the Akaso line are all the rage now. I’ve never tried one of those.

Thank you so much! I will look it up!
