My brother has a 5 year old one, used like 2-3 times, that he's sell you cheap.  I can ask him if you want.

Unfortunately I need it by sunday.
Local or Amazon prime seems the only way.

Too bad you are there and not here...I've got 4 go pro's I'd let you borrow one. Well one is a knock off go pro but still is pretty good.

My work just bought me a galaxy s9.
Maybe I will just use it.
I was looking at one 'amazons choice' for about 50ish bucks.
Thanks for the thought GO.

The local Indian casino gave me a ApeMan Pro as a gift. It seems to work pretty well and is available on Amazon for around $40.

I've got a Yi Action Cam - it's $55 on Amazon.  Works fine, decent app, good picture and lot's of accessories.

If you didn't need it right now right now you could make one for about $30 or less with a raspberry pi zero w, camera module, motionEyeOS, and about an hour.

The you and similar knockoffs are good to go for most common stuff. I've used them a bunch for work when documenting crane lifts and such.

Wife and I went to Cancun to swim with whale sharks. Got a GoPro session that really turned out nice quality video.
