As a family man who grew up loving the outdoors, Spencer Taylor was looking to get an action camera to capture his adventures, but just couldn’t justify spending $400 dollars.
He realized a lot of other families and backpackers might want a good quality camera that was affordable and easy to use.
He really believed that quality was the key difference. So he created a crowdfunding campaign to make it possible.
Thanks Spencer for creating a quality camera for families and travelers who do not have big budgets. @ViDiofficial
Spencer shared that everyone who listens to this episode will get a fully charged battery and an SD card already in it. (just kidding, they are doing that for EVERY backer).
