The Best New Action Cameras for Every Adventure

Regardless of whether or not your next adventure has you hanging 10 in the middle of a vicious curl while surfing, popping out of an airplane at altitudes that would give anyone vertigo, or just powering down a mountain run with fresh powder underneath you makes no difference at all.

All of those moments will eventually be lost to time forever – unless you cement them forever with the best action camera you can get your hands on!

 

GoPro Hero4 Black
 

Best for All-Around

The Gold Standard when it comes to action cameras today, you just can’t trust any reviews that don’t have this beast listed on it.

The action cam that started it all – and still the best all-around performer for those that want something to capture everything they do all the time – the GoPro Hero4 Black version is loaded with everything you need to do exactly that.

Pretty much everything-proof (just about bombproof), this is a workhorse that you can rely on no matter where your adventures take you.  ~$350

 

Sony FDR-X1000V/W 4K Action Cam
 

Best for Aerial Photography

Next to gold medalist GoPro is this beautiful little gem from Sony which is capable of capturing stunning 4K HD video with no trouble at all. Sony FDR-X1000V/W 4K Action Cam is the best aerial photography camera you’ll find on the planet today.

Super lightweight, very easy to securely mount to anything (critical when you’re up in the air) and effortless to control with remote capabilities, this is a top tier piece of tech.

This action cam is also easy to use and can not only shoot 4K videos but do it at a bitrate of 100 Mbps. A flagship camera from Sony that produces beautiful photos and very smooth videos that compete to be king of the hill.  ~$400

 

 VSN HD 360-degree Camera Kit
 

Best for Panoramas

Look, every now and again you’re going to want to pump the brakes a little bit on the adventuring and just soak in the moment and everything around you. And while most smartphones are built with panoramic capabilities today, none of them will come close to delivering the way that this bad boy does.

The VSN HD Camera Kit captures seamless 360-degree photos and video with a single and compact camera. It’s easy to use with the included remote or use their app to start/stop recordings, change shooting modes and settings, get a live preview and review your photos and videos.

The panoramic lens system syncs up wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet anywhere to do the heavy lifting of getting your panoramic lens right. Manage dust and is waterproof, it goes wherever you do!  ~$400

 

YI Action Cam
 

Best for Value

Maybe you don’t have the extra budget on hand to dump a ton of money into an action camera like the ones we’ve listed above. Or maybe you’d rather pump that money in more adventures, grabbing a quality cam at a discount that still gets the job done for you without breaking the bank.

If either of those situations sounds familiar, don’t be shy about snapping up this YI Action Cam! Loaded to the hilt with next-gen technology (and only a little bit more fragile than the GoPro line of indestructible cameras) this is a real investment in your adventure photos and videos.

Rocking an oversized CMOS sensor from Sony (the best in the business for low light and action situations), with built-in Bluetooth 4.0 and wifi technology cooked into the boot, this is a device that connects to your smartphone, tablet, or computer for effortless editing and uploading with no headache whatsoever. A special, special camera at this price point!  ~$100

 

TomTom Bandit Action Cam
 

Best for Stat Junkies

How great would it be to be able to capture all of your crazy adventures alongside all of your stats – distance traveled, time, altitude, etc – at the exact same time? The TomTom Bandit Action Cam is the only action cam on the market today that pulls this off that seamlessly and effectively, and we think you’re going to really love it.

4K HD video, stunning super high-def stills, and the ability to capture action during any adventure imaginable, you’re going to be able to use this amazing camera in every light and weather condition imaginable.

Close to as bulletproof as the GoPro lineup (without quite getting there), this is a special piece of tech that makes capturing your adventures a whole lot easier – especially if you want to crunch your numbers when you get back home!  ~$300
