I am planning on purchasing my first camera. Kinda thinking about a gopro, but would like to hear suggestions. I want it to shoot slo-mo, stationary mounted.($350 budget)so what works, and what doesn't?thanks,
Lots of good info and ideas in the Video & Photography collection of topics.
If you have the budget then I'm sure a GoPro will do nicely but I've never had one. I just used my iPhone and it did the job surprisingly well.
Go pro hero 7-9 black editions are good. Also a phone (iPhone or galaxy) that is less than 3 years old also do great slow mo, the only downside is you have less control with the phone cameras.
i have run a range of go pros, from 4's to the new 11 minis, so am familiar with most of them. The 10 and 11 series have tons of issues with batteries not charging, overheating, shutting down or just not turning on at all. The footage looks great when they work but out of the 5 11minis I have currently, 2 just no longer power on and I need to replace them and they're less than 6 months old.

I know it's from a couple years ago but here's a thread about GoPro alternatives for those with a tight budget (like me). But lots of other good insight into cameras in the discussion too: www.redlinederby.com/topic/cheap-action-cam-for-race-footage-runcam-5/3958
