Best 4K action cam for the money
An action cam with a lot of features, excellent video quality and a more affordable price, the YI 4K is undeniably a good deal.
Best single-lens 360-degree camera
The 360fly 4K is just all-around a better camera than the original, and its excellent mobile app is a definite plus compared to competing cameras. You'll just have to be forgiving of its image quality.
Best dual-lens 360-degree camera
Whether you're looking to create content for your VR headset or just love cool camera gadgetry, the Ricoh Theta S is an excellent way to start creating spherical images.
GoPro bargain to beat
It's been well over a year since the Hero4 Silver hit stores and it's still our top pick for its solid video quality, ample shooting options and built-in touchscreen.
The Anti-GoPro for power users
Whether you're a pro or just someone who wants the best possible video, the X1000V can go lens-to-lens with GoPro's Hero4 Black, but with features that camera doesn't even offer.
Best for fast online sharing
The Bandit addresses perhaps the biggest complaint with action cams: Editing. It uses built-in sensors to pinpoint the most interesting parts of your videos and assemble them into a sharable clip sent straight ot your smartphone for sharing.
Best grab-and-go camera
What it lacks in performance and features, it makes up for in design and ease of use. And thanks to a couple of price drops, this tiny waterproof cube of a camera is now worth buying.
