Save Vs Splurge: Action Cameras To Get You Going
If there is one gadget that became a rage this year, it has got to be the action camera. With this invention, we said goodbye to the usual video recorders that, TBH, were a hassle to use — and we only realised this once we were introduced to this marvelous tool. These mini camcorders are capable of capturing moments in a way that selfies fail to do. From videos to photos, these gadgets are a boon to any photographer or a techie.
The one word that an action camera is synonymous with is Go Pro. The company has proven, over and over again, that it is the best when it comes to producing action cameras — their Hero series is definitely a class apart. The latest to join the bandwagon is the Go Pro Hero 5. It’s smaller than the rest, but far more powerful. It gives you the opportunity to take 4K videos and 10MP photos while also including features like time lapse. Greater stability, one button control, and easily mountable on any gear, this camera is every solo backpacker’s dream come true, especially if you’re looking for a bit of a splurge. And it is waterproof!
But let’s be practical — we would have to save for a whole year to purchase the Go Pro; maybe even more. So, here is the perfect alternative that is actually a steal! This uber cute tiny polaroid action camera is #Bae. It can record 1080 HD videos that can be up to 90 minutes long. The in-built wide angle 124° camera allows you to get adventurous and capture much more than you expect to. Though not waterproof, it is splash proof — if you do spill a few drops of water, don’t panic, just wipe and click! With 32 GB memory, this camera will for sure keep you happy.
