Tips On Buying The Right Action Sport Camera

If nothing appeals to you more than a Saturday morning spent flying down a rugged trail on your mountain bike, wakeboarding and tricking behind a speed boat, climbing a sheer rock face or paddling a kayak down a white water rapid, then you know the next best thing is the look of dropped-jaw astonishment on your friend’s faces as you tell them of your adrenaline-pumping exploits. Wouldn’t it be great if you could take it a step further and actually show them your extreme sport in action? Well, with an action sport camera, you can.

High definition action sports cameras, also known as POV (point-of-view) cameras, have exploded onto the extreme sports scene over the past few years, letting adrenaline junkies film and show off their daring exploits on YouTube, Facebook and other forms of social media. Small, lightweight, built for rugged use and with no need for manual focusing,  these cameras are as easy to use as any other point-and-shoot, but have a wide range of mounts available for attaching them to just about anything.

Just about every sports action camera gets fantastic, high definition video and crystal-clear still shots, while having good audio for bringing the entire experience to life. Additionally, various mounting systes make different cameras more suitable for different sports.

Do You Race Cars Or Motorcycles?

If you have a need for speed that just can’t be satisfied driving a mere 55 mph, look to the GoPro HD Hero2 Motorsports Edition to satisfy your need for a camera that will capture every hairpin turn, burst of acceleration and twist of the track as you race your car or motorcycle. With a suction cup mount, J-hook, three curved adhesive mounts, two flat adhesive mounts and a three-way pivot arm, the Hero2 Motorsports Edition mounts to just about any vehicle frame you can drive. Rugged enough to tumble across the pavement and still keep shooting, the Hero2 is also waterproof. Professional quality photos and video, three filming modes and excellent sound quality will capture every detail of your experience.

Do You Surf, Waterski Or Wakeboard?

If “Endless Summer” is your favorite movie of all time, you dream of catching the biggest wave ever, and the beach is practically your home, then the GoPro HD Hero2 Surf Edition is your camera. It has all of the Hero2 features, including 11 megapixel still photos, 30 frames per second video and time-lapse settings, as well as every feature you need for crystal-clear, professional quality video or still photos. Waterproof to 180 feet, the Hero2 Surf Edition comes with two surfboard mounts, a float to keep your camera safe if it comes off the surfboard and assorted mounting hardware.

Do You Mountain Bike Or Motocross?

Combine high-quality motocross goggles with a full HD video and digital still camera, and you get the Liquid Impact Off-Road Goggle With Full HD Camera. With the tear-away lenses of the goggles, you don’t even need to worry about dirt fogging up your vision. The camera is mounted right in the upper center of the goggles, giving viewers of your video the feeling of actually being there as you fly down the mountain trail or burn up the motocross course. With a 136-degree wide-angle view, you will capture all the details of the course, and the high action mode films HD video at 60 frames per second.

Are You Going Underwater?

If you want to capture your scuba diving adventure in Hawaii or snorkeling expedition in the Bahamas, you need a camera that laughs at the water. The Delkin Wingman HD Waterproof Action Camera is super easy to use and is waterproof to a depth of 100 feet. It’s ultra-lightweight and comes with a universal mounting system to attach it just about anywhere, as well as helmet mounts and elastic straps to attach the camera to your wrist, gear or head. Eight megapixel still photos and four levels of video resolution capture crystal-clear pictures of your underwater experience. The Delkin Wingman is one of the easier sports action cameras to use, so you will be capturing the experience instead of struggling to figure out how to use your camera.

Do You Ski Or Snowboard?

Let your friends who were too scared to leave the bunny slope share vicariously in the excitement of the ultimate snowboard experience with the Liquid Image Summit Series Snow Goggle with HD Camera. Just slip on these anti-fog Lexan lensed snow goggles, and the camera, mounted right above your eyes, captures full HD video at 30 frames per second with 136-degree wide-angle lens and 12 megapixel still photos. Full audio brings the experience to life, making the video even more exciting as your friends get to witness your near misses on the mountain.

If your motto is a life of safety is a life unlived, you need a sports action camera that can capture the thrills, excitement and adrenaline that is a part of your weekend adventures. Share your extreme experiences, and let your friends see just what they are missing.
