REVIEW

Polaroid Cube ( Black)

The eye-catching Polaroid Cube is an inexpensive 1080p action cam with video quality that takes a backseat to design.

REVIEW

Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon Action Camera

The dual-camera Oregon Scientific ATC Chameleon is a good idea, but the execution and the overall feature set are lacking.

REVIEW

ContourRoam2 ( Blue)

As long as you don't need to change shooting modes on the go, the ContourRoam2 is a simple way to capture fine-quality POV videos in dry or wet conditions.

Oregon Scientific ATC5K
REVIEW

Oregon Scientific ATC5K

Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 (Purple)
REVIEW

Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 ( Purple)

The MHS-PM1 Webbie HD represents a step forward for Sony in the minicamcorder arena--but some quirks and only OK video quality prevent it from being compelling enough to best the competition.

REVIEW

Kodak Zx1 HD Pocket Video Camera ( Black)
