When it comes to choosing an action cam to film your daring, crazy and possibly stupid adrenaline–fueled endeavors, there is no shortage of options. To help you make a more informed decision based on your needs and performance of the cameras, Gizmodo has tested six different action cameras, quite literally putting them head-to-head.
Using what I can only describe as a monstrosity of a helmet-mounted rig, Brent Rose took a quick dip in the ocean and a speedy trail ride down the mountains of Santa Monica to gather some useful test footage. The cameras tested were, in no particular order: The Ion Air Pro 3, the Garmin VIRB Elite, the GoPro Hero 3+ Black, the JVC Adixxion GC-XA2, the Sony Action Cam 2 (HDR-AS30V) and the Drift Ghost-S.
Head on over to Gizmodo’s for a full breakdown and review of each camera, and to find out which of the six cams came out on top.
