How to Choose the Best Action Camera for Your Needs

Choosing the right camera features

When choosing the right action camera for your needs, first you have to define what you need it for. What kind of activities you will be using the action cam for? If you focus is water sports, such as swimming or diving, then you need a waterproof camera suitable for the type of activity or sport.

Size and Weight

Picking a camera with the right size and weight is again determined by the type of activities you will be using it for. If you will be mounting it on your helmet, for example, you might want to choose a light small camera.

Video Quality

Our recommendations is getting the highest video resolution you can afford. The standard now is 4K resolution, so choose an action camera that can record 4K.  Even if you currently do not have a 4K TV, still buying a 4K camera is a good investment because soon the TV standard will be at least 4K. It doesn’t make sense if you settle for a lower resolution camera, because then you will not be able to fully utilize your new 4K TV, especially if you are investing into an expensive, high end action cam. Also choose a camera with a good quality imaging sensor.

Ruggedness

Choose a rugged, tough camera that fits your style. Most action cameras are built tough and water resistant, but depending on the type of activity or sport, some activities require a tough, shock proof camera, and most water sports require a camera with built-in waterproofing rather that a waterproof case.

Battery Life

It is always a good idea to go with the longest battery life that you can afford. When you are in the middle of an activity like skiing or diving, it is not very practical to charge or swap batteries.

GPS

GPS is a great feature in an action cam especially for travel enthusiasts, so you can track the location of your adventures. Best GPS action  camera we recommend is the Garmin VIRB Ultra 30.

Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 Action Camera
  • ULTRA HD VIDEO - Crystal clear 4K/30fps footage, 1080p/120fps, or slow motion capability at 720p/240fps
  • G-METRIX - Built-in GPS and external sensors with connectivity to Garmin devices to capture performance data like speed, elevation, heart rate and G-force

Wireless Connectivity

An action camera with built in WiFi or Bluetooth is very helpful in transferring your images directly to your laptop or sharing your photos or videos with friends on social media.

Mounting Options and Accessories

Make sure the camera has the mounting options you need for your specific sport or activity.

Also check the prices to see if you can save by buying a camera bundled with all the accessories you need.

Memory Cards

Choose a fast memory card designed for action video. Choose a microsd card with the highest storage you can afford. You need that extra storage.

 

Nice to have Features

  • Burst Mode
  • Time-lapse
  • Slow-Motion Video
  • Voice Control through voice commands.
  • A smartphone app for the camera.
  • Control Fields of View.
