Though the GoPro Hero is nearly devoid of features, this entry point for GoPro's lineup is just enough to get you started in the world of little, mountable cameras.
Pricing not available
HTC Re Camera ( Navy)
The HTC Re's features might not be as unusual as its design, but it's still a solid little camera that's easier and faster to shoot with than your average smartphone.
Typical price: £160.00
GoPro Hero4 Silver
The GoPro Hero4 Silver takes everything we liked about the Hero3+ Black -- especially the solid video quality -- and adds in some handy new features including a touchscreen, making it one of the best little action cameras around.
Polaroid Cube ( Black)
The eye-catching Polaroid Cube is an inexpensive 1080p action cam with video quality that takes a backseat to design.
Typical price: £89.00
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.
Canon Legria HF G10
The Canon Legria HF G10 camcorder's video quality is great, but its high cost and a few minor flaws mean it's lost some points in our book.
Typical price: £1,200.00
Canon Legria HF M41
Commendable performance and plenty of storage space make the Canon Legria HF M41 camcorder one to consider for advanced users. But competition is tough at this price point and there could be more attractive options available, depending on your requirements.
Typical price: £620.00
The Panasonic HDC-SD900 is a tremendous 1080p camcorder that's ideal for advanced users, marrying great picture quality with excellent manual controls. Its 3D capability is an added bonus, but you'll need to pay extra for the compatible lens.
Typical price: £650.00
GoPro HD Helmet Hero
The GoPro HD Helmet Hero is a 1080p camcorder that attaches to your helmet, and can also attach to your car, surfboard, bike and so on. Its excellent image quality means it's the device to buy if you want to document your extreme-sports shenanigans.
Typical price: £270.00
Sony Bloggie Touch
The Sony Bloggie Touch will probably be ideal if you're seeking a mini-camcorder that you can stash in your pocket and use to capture decent video. A lack of settings and a sluggish autofocus limit its uses, though.
Typical price: £180.00
