I've been taking videos with mini action cams for the past 3 years or so. Here's a little advice - buy a GoPro and don't waste money on any cheap foreign knockoffs.
I finally got myself a GoPro and started taking nice videos. Those edits will come later down the road. An added bonus was that I finally got around to putting together the videos I've been taking. In the meantime - enjoy some amateur videos strung together by yours truly. I hope to look at this page one day and see myself gradually get better at video editing.
