Question Victure action cams

I'm in need of a new (affordable) camera for my bike (my Hero4 Session's battery will no longer hold a charge) and the 'Victure' brand has caught my eye over on Amazon. Does any one here use that brand, and if so, can you tell me how their quality is? I have a Victure mp3 player which is pretty good, so I know they can put together a good product, just curious about their cameras.

Thanks in advance.

That is a good price, and I could live with a few scratches on it. Thanks for the link!

I have been using the DJI Osmo action camera, and have been pretty impressed with it. It is compatible with GoPro mounts as well

If you ever get that Victure camera, please post your impressions. We have their mp3 players too and they have been pretty good. The only negative was their switching on when plugged in for charging.

Yeah, mine does that too.

Unfortunately, I procrastinated too long and missed out on the Hero4 Session that Iride01 linked to. Not too sure which camera / brand I'll go with. I've still got my eye on the Victure (ac820 / ac940) cams over on Amazon, but I also see some refurbished Hero+ plus LCD screen cams over on eBay for $40 or thereabout. I'd kind of like to stick with GoPro, but at the same time, I'd like a brand new, yet affordable, camera. Decisions, decisions. LOL!!

Well, I decided to go with the used / refurbed GoPro Hero+ with the LCD screen. It's not the fanciest camera out there, but for the "simple" recording I do (basically just ride videos), 1080p is fine. The seller provides a 90 day warranty, but if it should happen to die on day 91, I'm only out $35 plus tax. Once it arrives, I can start posting some new videos to my YT channel (it's been awhile since I've done so, but for health reasons, not because of the battery issue).
