under a 100 dollars... Im sorry to tell you but at that point you are going to be using ipods and flip videos. Gopros are about 300 used you may be lucky to get them for 200 I dont know about R7s or contors but if you want a hd camera for pretty much any sport  I would suggest gopro.

I read an article on the CEO of GoPro... The cameras cost under a dollar per unit :o. Haha this means they are exorbitantly overpriced; but they are still very good cameras (despite the low cost).
If you're under 18 and pay for your own stuff, put this in your signature.
On a side note... Royal Highlanders rule!

Maybe $1 in raw parts. Then you factor in overhead like shipping, assembly, marketing, etc....

$1? They were MilSpec for the electronics at one point. I can't see the, costing that little even with bulk sourcing.

Amazon has the Contour Roam (not the Roam 2) for $115. That's about the best you're likely to find (and Contour is going out of business). I have one. I've been happy with it.

You get what you pay for. I would strongly suggest focusing on other aspects of your setup before an action cam.

Go to your local best buy. They are selling the original roams for $100 and contour roam 2+ for $215.

$1 for GoPro to build a unit is bullshit. I can see it being made for $40 to $80  but not a dollar. If you believe this then you are probably one of those people who think saying orange slowly sounds like gullible .
