17 Cameras Like GoPro: Complete Guide

Cameras Like GoPro, Product Reviews

In this post, you'll learn about 17 cameras like GoPro. Some cost less (under $100) and others have better specs (longer battery life, etc) than the GoPro.

The name GoPro has become synonymous with action cameras. And while there's no doubting the quality of their product – it's hard to please everyone.

Update (January 20, 2017): 5 Cameras Like GoPro (But Cheaper)

cameras like gopro

While there are lots of generic brands, the ones I've chosen to include in the list are primarily known brands. Companies like Sony, Polaroid, Garmin, and TomTom. I also included SJCAM because they have really made a name for themselves – despite being a GoPro look-a-like brand, a FauxPro.

My Picks: GoPro Alternative

Don't let this list overwhelm you. Here are my picks of the best cameras like GoPro, according to the application:

For Content Creators (& Bloggers)

Either the TomTom Bandit or the Garmin Virb (both Elite XE) are strong options. Shoot full HD, long battery life, and Wi-Fi connectivity via the app. Read more about the Bandit and the Virb.

For Family Travel

Polaroid Cube+ is a versatile, lightweight and inexpensive action camera. I recommend the waterproof case – so it can be used everywhere on your travels. Read more about the Polaroid Cube+.

Obviously, there are more than just 17 cameras like GoPro. There are another 6 or 8 cameras that I intentionally left out because they lacked basic features or were very poorly rated. Am I missing your favorite GoPro alternative? Please include it in the comment section below!

Okay, ready to get started? Lets begin!

17 Cameras Like GoPro

Here are 17 different cameras like GoPro. They are all action cameras and all shoot in good quality HD video. Some of the differences include 4k video, Wi-Fi, field of view, battery life, battery type (removable), weight, image resolution, GPS and other sensors, and frame rate.


1) TomTom Bandit

return to top

tomtom cameras like goproThe Bandit shoots 4k video and 16MP stills. The battery is the best I've seen at 3-hour non-stop filming life. And because the battery (known as Batt-stick) also has a microSD mount, you can change both at the same time. And you can also charge the battery and copy your files to your computer at the same time, via the USB port.

The camera comes complete with many built-in sensors, including speed, G-force, altitude, rotation, and heartbeat. Heartbeat sensor requires separate Bluetooth heart rate monitor.

It ships with a GoPro adapter – allowing it to work with all the standard GoPro accessories. This is great, because there are more accessories for the GoPro camera than any other action camera.

  • WiFi: Yes. Connects to a powerful mobile app for easy editing and sharing.
  • Still shots: 16MP
  • Video resolution: Shoot video up to 4k and 1080p 60fps / 720p 120fps
  • Wide angle lens: Yes, but actual FOV is not noted.
  • tomtom bandit action cameraBattery: Removable, 3-hour battery. The Batt-stick charges without cables or extra chargers, just charge directly via USB. Additional batt-stick costs $59.99.
  • Is it Waterproof? Yes, to 40 meters without an additional case.
  • Memory card: Accepts up to a 64GB microSD Card.
  • Rating: 4.6 out of 5 Stars with 20 Customer Reviews.
  • Price (in USD): $399.99. Check it out on Amazon.com | Amazon.ca | Amazon.co.uk

The FauxPro: SJCAM

There is no doubt that GoPro's success has caused many tech companies to jump into the action camera market. And instead of innovating, some of these companies decided to simply replicate.

I decided to finish the list with the two near-copies of the GoPro. While there are countless knock-offs, SJCAM has had some success and maintains good ratings. The GoPro-look has earned them the name: FauxPro.

The Camera Most Like GoPro?

For me, the camera most like GoPro is a toss up between the TomTom and Garmin action cameras. And in my research for this post, I discovered a few great lower-cost options – especially the Cube+ and Roam3.

What do you think? What is the camera most like GoPro?
