Action Camera Reviews

Action Cameras are small, light weight and enable you to shoot video anywhere. The compact design means that they can be attached to almost anything, and unlike conventional cameras they're designed to be attached rather than handheld, which is why they've become so popular with extreme sports enthusiasts.

The small size, ease of use and often full integration with mobile apps has also made them a more general popular camera choice. Best of all they're called action for a reason, the design, build and functionality means that they can withstand the elements as well as a knock or two, so an ideal choice for all the family.

As well as shooting video there's plenty of other features hidden inside these small devices, they shoot stills, time-lapse, some even feature motions and GPS sensors.

In this section we'll cover the latest action camera reviews, as well as a few links to the latest news and tips.
