6 best action cameras (2021): underwater, 360, compact and more
Choosing the right one the action was easy with the camera: go with GoPro. It’s still good advice. GoPro is at the top of our list and is the best choice for most people. But in the end we found some worthy competitors.
To find out which camera is the best, we tested them all. We pigeoned with them, we rode with them, we rode our bikes with them to the 6 year old reckless. We have found many unique opportunities that will record future adventures and survive.
Updated April 2021: We’ve added the Occu 4K camera and removed the GoPro Hero7 and Sony FDR-X3000, both of which have been discontinued.
