Listing the best action camera is a hard task. Not only that it’s hard to pick the best due to large number of products being released each day, but also because of numerous factors that are involved.
Please understand that the below list includes only the cameras we tested. Unfortunately we are unable to test each and every camera, so the list might not be as complete as some people might expect.
People are different. What might be the best for us, might not suit you.
People love to quickly click the “add to cart button”. But before you make a decision which camera to get, it is highly recommended that you read our action camera basics and buying guide for better understanding.
