Camera doesn’t tell a story – you do
At the end of the day, no matter which action cameras you end up purchasing, do not ever forget that creating videos and photos is an art. People will not watch your videos because of all the cool effects and gear you have. They will watch it because of the story.
The emotions which your video sparks are way more important. Even if you are not professional. Let’s say you are making a holiday video. Instead of just joining clips together, create a story that will remind you how much fun you had.
Instead of focusing too much on the technical stuff and specification, just get a camera that suits most of your needs. Perfect product does not exist. If it’s close to perfect it is pricey. Instead of waiting 2 months researching online on which camera creates such and such video, spend half of that time planning your video and the other half outdoors, creating stories.
People often over-think on what to get. They do insane amount of research and get disappointed at the end, because they are seeking for perfection for as little cash as possible. Of course, I am not saying you shouldn’t do a research at all. But stop wasting your time with technical stuff you do not need and want to understand.
Anyway, I really hope this guide helped you. If you have any further questions or a suggestion to improve it, please let me know. I would gladly reply to your questions and implement your suggestions into this guide.
