What exactly is a CAMERADOJO? By definition, this device is a compact and lightweight camera designed to film pictures and videos of an activity while doing the said activity. And when I say activity, it’s more towards action activities like skateboarding, biking, running or any extreme sports or activities. It is often associated with extreme sports and outdoor activities simply for the reason that it is built like a tank(the best ones anyway) and all of them have mounting options to make it easier for you to film yourself doing something.
So for any of those seeking to buy a sports action camera, here’s the top 5 action cameras out in the market today.
- GoPro Hero4 Black – it’s no surprise that the best camera in the market today comes from GoPro, the leading manufacturer and basically the inventor of sports action cameras. The Hero4 Black’s most redeeming feature is the powerful resolution that it is capable of shooting. With 60 fps, think of the amazing slow motion footages that you can capture with this beast.
- Kodak PixPro SP1 – It has great video quality and the built is very solid and durable. The best thing about this camera is the price. It’s not as expensive as the Hero4 Black.
- Polaroid Cube – This action camera is every beginner’s dream. It is simple, easy to use, durable, good video quality and best of all, inexpensive.
- GoPro Hero4 Silver – Much like its counterpart the Hero4 Black, this version is also outstanding. It also has a touchscreen LCD which is not present in the Black edition. It has lower resolution capabilities compared to the Black though, but overall, it’s still a great camera.
- Drift HD Ghost-S – It has swiveling lens which is pretty unique for an action cam. It also has a large display which is seldom found in other action cams. The only downside is it doesn’t produce great video quality and quite heavy as well. Its most redeeming quality though is that it doesn’t need a case to be waterproof.
