All the features that make Contour's action cams excellent are here in its entry-level Roam3. While it's not loaded with extras, it's one of the best you'll find for its price.
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 Action Cam HDR-AS10
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.
Drift HD Ghost Action Camera
With Wi-Fi, an LCD, and a waterproof body, as well as some nice accessories, the Drift HD Ghost uses its features to beat back the action cam competition.
Sony Bloggie Live HD Camera ( Silver)
The Sony Bloggie Live HD lets you wirelessly live stream all your life events with the ease of a shoot-and-share camcorder. But, not without a few caveats.
Sony Bloggie Duo Camcorder ( Violet)
Sony's Bloggie Duo minicamcorder makes it easier to be part of your own movie clips and photos. But that's about all it does.
ContourRoam Hands-Free HD Camcorder
The ContourRoam finally matches the rugged construction and ultrawide field of view of the competition, while still excelling as a sports camera with its ease of use and low price.
Kodak PlaySport Zx5 ( Aqua)
The rugged Kodak PlaySport Zx5 is a very good minicamcorder, but falls just shy of improving on last year's model, despite being more durable.
Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 ( Silver)
If you're looking for a simple shoot-and-share minicamcorder, the Bloggie Touch is a good option--that is, as long as you understand its limitations.
Kodak PlayTouch ( Red)
Mediocre video quality and a couple design issues keep the Kodak PlayTouch from being a top-notch minicamcorder.
