Most Epic ACTION CAMERA: Quality, Affordable, Ready to Go

$151,880

1,253

It's simple. We engineered an action camera that puts pro-grade results within everyone's reach. Here's a confession--we don't plan to fight any great white sharks or skydive into a volcano any time soon. We're normal people...who are tired of having to choose between super expensive and poor quality when it comes to action cameras. And we think you are too.

This ain’t our first rodeo folks. We’ve been at this action camera thing for a couple years so we know what we’re up against. Some call it luck that we’ve been able to make an affordable camera with such high quality, but we’ll call it long hours, elbow grease and ingenuity.

So, just how does the Gen3 ViDi action camera stack up against the competition? Well, most cameras out there in our class cost 2 or 3 times as much. I mean, how else are they going to pay for their corporate heads, their global retreats, or their marketing? You know the answer: it's built into the cost of their products. We decided to take our money (what little we have) and put every last cent into the guts of the camera. Well...we DID save a little for the cool design too. 

We want to take the People's Action Camera to as many people as would like it--but going into major retail distribution is expensive. That's why the big brands can do it, but the small brands can't. So, here we are at Kickstarter--where all that goes out the window. We need your support to take the ViDi LCD camera to markets around the world. Since this is the first time the Gen3 ViDi is available to the public, we’re skipping the middle man and bringing it to you for way less than retail.

Underwater Sample Footage

Filming underwater is one of the main reasons that people buy action cameras. The ViDi LCD has a built in High Def CMOS Sensor with Low Light Resolution that increases underwater clarity especially when the sun is not shining.

The New ViDi LCD vs the GoPro Hero

Check out the side-by-side comparison video featuring the ViDi LCD and the GoPro Hero. We have a pretty amazing camera, but you don't have to take our word for it. You be the judge.

The ViDi LCD comes with so many extra features that the GoPro Hero doesn't come with. Here's a list:

  • Rear LCD Display Screen (This alone is freaking amazing! The only way to make sure you got the shot you wanted, is to watch the footage.)
  • 4GB Micro SD Card (Pre-installed)
  • Extension Pole (For all your selfie stick needs.)
  • Plugs into the Computer (To easily remove/edit your footage.)
  • Time Lapse Video
  • It Floats! (Seriously it does)
  • 1 Free Month of Shred Video (An easy drag & drop video editing software).
  • Did We Mention All This Was Under $100!

Announcing ViDi's FIRST Project Milestone

If we reach $100,000 in pledges, for each ViDi Camera you order, you will receive 2 additional accessories! The Handle Bar Mount & The Sticky Mount. 

Why You're Gonna Want These Accessories: 

THE HANDLE BAR MOUNT makes it easy to capture shots while riding your bike, motorcycle, or scooter! You can also attach it to a paintball gun, ski pole, drum set, or a stick... so you can record your dog playing fetch. 

THE STICKY MOUNT is perfect if you are doing anything with a helmet. That includes rock climbing, biking, motocross, skate boarding, sky diving, jousting, snowboarding, zip-lining, or even flying into outer space!

Spencer Taylor is a father of five and an entrepreneur dedicated to building real value. 

After struggling to find a quality action camera for himself and his kids to use that was also affordable, Spencer decided to see what it would take to develop a camera that brought as much quality as it did value. He's since amassed some of the best talent in product development, sourcing, and other fields to help make ViDi a reality. 

So, ViDi was born out of the search to create an action camera for the people. It was a long road, and many obstacles had to be overcome, but it's finally finished and ready for its debut... and it's happening right here on Kickstarter. 

The ViDi LCD is ready for the People.

Thanks again to all the supports on Kickstarter!

Risks and challenges

Here’s the really nice thing about ViDi: It’s not just a dream--it’s a reality. The camera is already developed, finalized, and is on its way to being manufactured as this is being written! We’ve already put in the time, money and effort to get the camera up and ready. In fact, we have our first shipment arriving just in time for the holidays. This is why we’ve offered the early bird special price and early delivery.

One thing we have to keep our focus on is delivery: We'll have the cameras and we hopefully have you involved. Once the campaign is over, we'll just have to be sure the cameras get into your hands with no bumps in the road. I mean, we could have the problem of too many orders, but that's a problem we're willing to spend time and money to solve :)

So, we are using our tried and true shipping partner that we've used a ton in the past. We trust our business with them and have confidence they will meet expectations.

While some Kickstarters have only a concept, a prototype, and some idea of a delivery path and timeframe, ViDi has had its plan ready to go for months.

We just need you!
