GoPro Hero3+ ( Black Edition)
Like the Hero3, the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition's strongest attributes are its excellent video quality and impressive list of shooting options. If that's what matters most to you, this is the action cam to get.
iOn Air Pro 3
A fun, flexible action cam, the iOn Air Pro 3 keeps things simple without sacrificing video or build quality, making it an excellent option for those who just want to go out and shoot -- in or out of the water.
iON Air Pro 2
One of the better action cam options available, the iON Air Pro 2 improves on the original, while still offering a good value.
Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 ( Black)
The only thing the Sony Handycam HDR-CX220 seems to have going for it is the low price, but "you get what you pay for" has never rung truer.
Sony Action Cam Wi-Fi HDR-AS15
The Sony Action Cam is a solid first effort and worth its price, but some design shortcomings may be enough to put off some potential buyers.
Liquid Image Ego ( Yellow)
The egg-sized Liquid Image Ego wins on size and simplicity, but its features -- outside of built-in Wi-Fi -- are minimal.
Samsung HMX-QF20 ( Black)
For good-enough video for Web sharing and a 20x zoom lens, the Samsung HMX-QF20 gets the job done.
GoPro Hero3 Black Edition ( 12MP)
The GoPro Hero3 Silver and White editions are strong contenders in the sports camera market, but the faster, more powerful Black Edition is head and shoulders the best sports camera on the market today.
The Contour+2 combines the best features of the entire Contour camera line in one simple, powerful flagship model.
JVC Everio GZ-EX250
As entry-level camcorders go, JVC's Everio GZ-EX250 is an OK option, especially if Wi-Fi functionality and a 40x zoom lens are at the top of your want list.
