Go pro cameras

I am looking to get a camera to do some general recording in the studio and also to use in my car for trips my wife and I make. Needs to be able to be mounted on the front windshield area to record forward.

I am looking at the GoPro line and a couple others. The camera needs to have self stabilization for the car and be able to work in a studio that is not always super lite.

Suggestions as to what would be best.

Thanks in advance.

GoPros are fantastic! Go look at their website footage and you will be stunned. I have a Hero3+ for family videos of the kids in action. They are really good for music production videos too since you can stick them in discrete places. There is an iPhone app for remote control with a snapshot utility. Very handy. The audio sucks on them so be aware of that. Definitely capture external audio if it's for music.

Here for the gear
Just bought a Chinese 4k go pro copy of akai.fr. wolf 9 euros. Us a wifi app for iOS and Android can view and activate camera. Comes with about 100 euros worth ( if you compare to gopro) of waterproof case and mount accessories. I'm a broadcast camera tech for BBC it sky etc. They all use gopros smothered on a broadcast but for 49 euros you can't beat it. Gone up to 69. Buy it try it and send 8t back if you dont like it.https://www.amazon.fr/gp/aw/d/B01N5L...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
