Xiaomi Yi ( White)
The Xiaomi Yi Action Cam's video quality and shooting options are well above other cameras in its class, but you'll need to bring your own accessories.

Kodak Zx1 HD Pocket Video Camera ( Pink)
While its video quality doesn't quite match up to that of the Flip Video MinoHD, the Kodak Zx1 does win points for its stylish, rugged design.
