Best action Camera under £100

I’m after a decent action camera for some trips out.

Nothing expensive but takes half decent videos and stills. Looking £100 and under

Any reviews would be brilliant thank you

Why would you want half decent videos and photos, buy cheap pay three times you will be so dissappionted with the quailty of a £100 camera you'll end up paying another £200 for a decent camera they are cheap for a reason.

It’s more for fun than serious use. Hobbies and days out. So don’t need to spend £300 if you can get one to do the job for under £100

I love comments like this. People usually have a budget for a reason. The whole buy cheap buy twice mantra is usually spouted by people who have no idea about money or are selling you the product you're after!
My Tesco(technika) tv is still going strong after 5 years. The previous one from Richer Sounds that cost twice the price only lasted a week or so.
Yes there will be cheap cameras out there that are not up to the job or give satisfactory results but research correctly(which is what he's doing) and there will be options open to him plus advice of what's available slightly over his budget.

Fully understand where you are coming from Darlofan but Spike did ask for a camera for Action photos and vids,i can't see how an under £100 camera can take action photos and vids, stills yes.

Oh yes i do have more money than sense lol

Try the Akaso EK7000- about £60 - punches way above it's weight - I have one and for the kind of stuff you want it's ideal

Just purchased two of these as Christmas presents, one for each of my daughters. Reviews look good and had a play with one of the cameras before wrapping and it seems to be pretty good. Time will tell!!

I actually went for the SJCAM SJ6 Legend , won a brand new one for £75 has great reviews and similar to the one Andy suggested. Comes with loads of kit also.
