Action Camera Buying Guide
Budget & Camera Size
Set your budget, from there, you’ll get a rough idea on which brands to go for. As for camera size, it actually depends on your purpose of buying. If you are buying for vlogging, it’s wise to choose a handheld and smaller Action Camera.
Video Resolution & Lens Angle
Video resolution is one of the key specs to look for when buying any cameras. Choose an Action Camera that supports high resolution like UltraHD (2K), 4K. You’ll find brands that offer up to 8K too. Take Frames per Second (FPS) into account as well. A higher FPS support makes your videos much smoother and real, thus it is ideal for recording slow motion shots or timelapse videos. So, If money isn’t a problem, choose an Action Camera that supports 4K resolution and above – because the higher the resolution, the sharper your video.
As for Lens Angle, you’ll find various options like wide, super wide, 360 ° and many others. Depending on what kind of video style you like, personally if you want to use it for vlogging, a superwide and 360 ° angle is a wise choice.
This feature is definitely a nice thing to have as most if not all of the videos you’ll be recording using the Best Action Camera will involve a lot of movement. Thus having stabilisation and anti-shake technology is an advantage to refrain from shaky videos.
Battery & Memory Card
Get one with higher battery capacity as batteries tend to drain faster especially when you’re recording a higher resolution video. Some brands might offer an extra battery pack too.
For memory card selection, If you’re buying an Action Camera with 4K resolution, make sure you choose a memory card that supports 4K. If you ask us, we suggest buying a memory card with the label SDXC UHS -I U3 V30 Class for a smooth video output. Most Action Cameras now support at least up to 128GB of capacity.
