HOW TO Pick the Best ACTION CAMERA FOR YOU

There is a lot of choices when it comes to purchasing an action camera in 2018, with big brands like GoPro and Sony, as well as lesser-known companies including Veho and Olfi vying for the top place on the industry.

Our selection of cams ranges from affordable-ish, to quite expensive, and it’s worth remembering (as with most items) you get exactly what you pay for.

Image quality is among the most important factors when deciding on an action camera, and also the GoPro, Veho, and Sony actually excel in this area. It’s always worth checking out frame rates rather than maximum resolution, because while a lot of cameras shoot in 4K resolution, some less expensive models utilize a frame rate of 15 fps, making the movie seem wider. If you are shooting in 4K you want at least 30 fps, or just shoot in 1080p HD at 60 fps.

Most cameras also include bundled accessories, if you wish to take your action camera heavy sea diving you’re going to need a waterproof housing, or when you would like to mount it onto a car you’ll need a sucker mount. Some cameras include a load of mounts and instances free using the camera, such as the Veho and Olfi, whereas others a bit less generous.

Last year, we noticed that a rise in extra features being added to actions cameras. Some of them, like image stabilization, continue to impress in some specific models, while others, like voice management and GPS, are more “nice to haves” compared to “requirements”
