Gizmodo Puts Six Different Action Cameras Through a Thorough Review

ActionCamsGiz

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.
