Impressive Action Camera - cheap alternative for GoPro Hero 4

Go Pro and Shoot like a Hero! Because you don't need the latest  GoPro HERO 4 to shoot quality video material. It's a great camera for professional sportsmen like skaters, skiiers, but an amateur will appreciate an alternative like REDLEAF SJ5000+. It can record in 4K as well as 2.7K and Full HD. You can use your smartphone to control recording and view the image remotely. It comes with a set of mounts.  It offers similar functionality to GoPro HERO 4 at 1/3rd of the price so if you are on a budget it is what you are looking for. The mounts are compatible with GoPro  - you can use them with both cameras, so the Redleaf will do as your second camera even if you already use a Hero 3, 3+ or 4 for example.

Camera + Gimbal under £300

SJ5000+ is great on its own, but with stabilisation it works miracles. On the right our footage recorded with SJ5000+ and Feiyu G4 Plus combo.

4K, 2.7K and FullHD

The camera can record in 4K (25fps)! If you record in lower resolutions it will be able to capture more frames per second - 60fps @ 1080p allows you to enjoy slo-mo effect in FullHD.  On the left our footage recorded with just the camera and selfie stick.

Standard set is really versatile!

The camera comes with a basic set of mounts and a waterproof housing. A charger is included (EURO plug), but the camera can be charged with a smartphone charger as well. You can use the camera on a standard photo tripod.  
If all of this is not enough the camera is sold in various bundles with batteries, selfie sticks, head straps etc:  see listings
