Cheap GoPro Hero Alternative | HUGE Unboxing Test and Review | Aldi Maginon AC-777

I picked up a cheap GoPro Hero alternative at my local Aldi the other day.

It’s the Maginon AC777 and it was $59.99. The amount of extras that came with this camera are crazy! I do an unboxing, hands on test, and review. It does a really excellent job at 1920 x 1080 60fps and has a super crisp and clear picture. Watch the video and see it in action! Stats are listed below. Here’s the link to the GoPro Hero5 Black so you can review its stats.

Whichever action camera you choose will probably have low audio levels.

Pick up a digital audio recorder

A good lapel wired microphone

JOBY GorillaPod’s are super useful
