It is clear that when we talk about sports cameras, no one overshadows GoPro in terms of quality. I have looked at thousands of reviews and they are actually the rival to beat. Now, the million dollar question is, do we need that much quality to pay that price difference? Let’s compare this GoPro Hero 7 white, which is the entry level GoPro line at this moment, with the other “cheap” cameras to see what comes out.

¿What is fps?

It is the acronym for “Frame per Second”. In practice it is the amount of static “photos” that the camera makes in a second to make our video.

Why are they so important for windsurfing videos?

A higher value of fps allows us to record with a higher quality in environments with a lot of movement, the video comes out more fluid. As you can imagine, when I shoot a windsurfing video, everything moves, the water, the board, the sail, the sailor, the wave that is generated, etc.

With or without casing?

It is obvious that the cameras without casing are cooler and may record with a better sound quality. But, in terms of impact protection, I think that the casing helps a lot. For the particular case of windsurfing I would put a case even to a camera that doesn’t need it.
With the examples we have right now, the cost increase that a submersible camera without a carcass supposes is, in my opinion, unnecessary.

Conclusion

Having seen all the above and adding that the most economic GoPro costs the same as 4 cameras Victure or Apeman, I can say without any hesitation I would opt for one of these two. It’s clear that if we go to other GoPro models, such as the Hero 7 black, the benefits are different. And also its price. In any case here you have a good offer for those seeking the state of the art.

Accessories

In this sport we can’t think of buying an action cam without the specific accessories for it. In this sense my highest recommendation is the Flymount, it’s an expensive accessory but it is very worthwhile since it can be fixed to the mast or the boom without distinction, achieving the best shots we can think of.
The position well up on the mast is very useful for instructional videos, it’s a perfect angle to correct sailing position or movements.
