An action camera, also known as a sports camera, is an incredible tool for capturing video or photos of your outdoor adventures. Unlike traditional camcorders, sports cameras tend to be durable and compact, while offering high-quality visuals. Some action cameras record in 4K.
If you are thinking about buying an action camera, you need to consider a few factors. First, are you going to record video or take pictures under water? Many action cameras are waterproof, some at depths up to 30 feet or more. Maybe you want a 360 degree camera to get spherical views of your travels. Although sports cameras cannot capture stunning aerial views like camera drones can, these devices are able to go almost anywhere else. Sports cameras are also relatively simple to use. Many have apps that allow you to edit or reframe your video on a laptop or smartphone.
Convert your action camera into a helmet camera.
Nothing gets closer to the action than a helmet camera. The first-person perspective is unique for viewers, making them feel completely immersed in the action. If you want to record footage of your exploits while keeping your hands free, you may want to convert your action camera into a helmet camera. With an action camcorder mount, you can mount your camera to a helmet. With your action camera secured to a mount, you can get great video or photos on the go.
