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.
JVC ADIXXION GC-XA2
After making several improvements and adding a list of new features to its first action cam, JVC's Adixxion GC-XA2 is easily one of the best options for capturing your thrills and spills.
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.
GoPro Hero3 White Edition ( 5MP)
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.
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.
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 ( black)
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-TS10 ( 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.
Flip UltraHD 2010 ( 1 Hour, White)
The Flip UltraHD 1 Hour is an OK entry-level mini camcorder if you just need something simple to shoot and share video, but there are better options.
