Hi guys, new here.
Plenty of forums discussing action cams but since this is specifically for moto vlogging it seems like the best place to be.
Basically I want to dabble with moto vlogging. If I get bored, i'd still like to use the camera for insurance purposes. Im in the UK. So my wants are:

1080p 30 at least, prefer 1080p 60, dont care about 4k.
Reliable
At least 2 hours battery life
Takes an external mic
Can record with mic while charging

So far I have narrowed it down to:

Drift Ghost X. The only issue I have with this cam is the shakey reviews. It seems it can be unreliable and fail at the sight of water, despite being water resistant. Are these just a few unlucky individuals venting their frustrations on Amazon reviews?

GitUp Git2. £85, seems decent.

Amazon Crosstour/Apeman or some other 'no name' brand, a few here and there have mic input but no solid reviews good or bad.

Would really appreciate some help. Budget up to £150 max really.

I have the Gitup and meets all your expectations except for charging while mic connected

I was going to upgrade my Drift Ghost S to one of the newer Drifts but there has been quite a few issues with regards to using the mic adapters. I'd suggest looking at a second Ghost S. There's one eBay at the minute on auction at £77. Finishes at 15 Jun, 2019 21:38:35 BST.

I've been very happy with my Ghost X and I'm sad to see that it's gone. I'm not (or rather the Drift 4K still has a lot of bugs to workout. Over all I think you'll be happy with the Ghost X.
