How many of you dismissed action cameras when they first came out? Come on, own up – to be honest we were probably at it too… Even now we’re not totally convinced that rocking a headcam is acceptable.
But it’s becoming increasingly difficult to be a cynic – with ridiculously high resolutions and features you might not even find on a decent DSLR, action cameras look like they’re set to be a permanent feature in the ‘extreme’-sports landscape.
So, despite our contempt for the ‘radical unicorn’ look (credit to Whitelines’ Chris Moran for that one), we’re taking a peek at some of the latest and greatest cameras in their field – and a few that were just so strange that we couldn’t leave them out either.While you’re watching, don’t forget to turn up the resolution on each player for maximum POV cam stokage.
