    Hi Guys,

    My wife and I will be going to Bali on April and I was thinking of getting an action/video camera. I'm opting for a low budget cam that I can use at the beach and the pool to take videos but I'm torn between getting an action camera or a "Tough" camera. I can't justify getting the expensive GoPro's as I don't see much use in them. Here are my choices so far (prices are Singapore Dollars):

    - GoPro Hero+ (WiFi) (S$290)
    - Sony HDR-AS20 (S$299)
    - Olympus TG-860 (S$398)

    All can shoot at 1080p 60fps. I included the more expensive TG-860 as it can serve as an "okay" stills camera compared to the 2 action cameras. However, I'm not sure about the video quality of the Olympus because I can't find much reviews on it.

    Any thoughts?

    Another option would be the GoPro session. Price is now $199. Should do just fine and is waterproof without a case (fine unless you're going diving)

    I just checked the price of the Session here in Singapore and it retails for S$300 now. However, the reviews aren't that good.

    I was browsing around and found some brand new TG-850's being sold for below S$270. Considering this as well.
