The new Stealth 2, as compared to Drift's existing Ghost-S

Drift Innovation's line of actioncams are certainly worthy competitors to the venerable GoPro Hero, although some potential buyers might wish that they were a little more compact. Well, the company has addressed that with its new Drift Stealth 2. It's reportedly 48 percent smaller and 42 percent lighter than Drift's Ghost line of cameras.  Read More

The Kodak PixPro SP360, with some of its optional extras

We've recently been hearing a lot about systems that record 360-degree video, although they mostly appear to be either professional setups or offerings from relatively small startup companies. That changed yesterday, however, when JK Imaging announced the new Kodak PixPro SP360 actioncam.  Read More

HTC's pipe-like RE actioncam

Although HTC is best-known for its smartphones, today the company announced its venture into another product category – actioncams. The company has announced the RE, a viewfinder-less waterproof video camera that looks sort of like something you'd find in a plumbing store.  Read More

GoPro has recently updated its lineup of actioncams with new models that include improved 4K video recording or a built-in touchscreen. But which one is right for you to capture your extreme exploits, or even those of your dog? Gizmag compares the specs and features of the Black and Silver GoPro Hero3+ and Hero4 cameras.  Read More

The GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition will offer 4K recording at 30 FPS

GoPro has just announced three new models in its popular Hero actioncam line. The followup to the Hero 3, aptly named Hero 4, adds 4K recording at 30 frames per second. This should be a big improvement over the 4K/15fps seen on the previous model.  Read More

The newly-announced Contour Roam3

For a while there, the Contour actioncam company was in a state of hiatus, leaving many people wondering when and if it would resume making cameras. Well, now it's under new ownership, and today it announced its latest offering – the Contour Roam3. While the camera reportedly offers "the best video and sound quality of any Contour to date," it actually features less bells and whistles than the company's existing +2 model.  Read More

The extendable PowerPole has a 5,400 mAh battery built in, allowing for up to eight hours ...

Even with the beefed up battery of GoPro's Hero3+, there's always the possibility of the camera cutting out right as the action heats up. Living out this scenario on the powder-coated ski hills of California led the team at Polar Pro to explore ways of not just extending battery life, but doing so without interruption. The result is the PowerPole, an extendable pole-mount with around five GoPro batteries worth of juice packed inside.  Read More

The Ricoh WG-M1 is a waterproof, shock-resistant, and cold-resistant actioncam

The newly announced Ricoh WG-M1 is the latest addition to the WG-series of rugged adventure cameras. But its quirky form-factor differs from the rest of the line-up, and the new 14-megapixel camera is clearly designed to compete in the action camera market. It features a wide-angle lens, built-in Wi-Fi and a 1.5-inch LCD screen.  Read More

Using the RM-LVR2V Live-View Remote, users can remotely preview, play back and delete shot...

And you thought Sony’s existing Action Cam was small ... Today at the IFA 2014 electronics trade show in Germany, Sony introduced its Action Cam Mini. By moving the GPS function out of the camera and into an accompanying wrist-mounted remote, the company has shrunk the camera to two-thirds the size of its predecessor.  Read More

The Qudos Action light, mounted alongside a GoPro Hero 3 White edition camera

We've seen a plethora of accessories for the GoPro Hero actioncam cropping up over the past few years, including everything from stabilizers to drones to helmet-mounted poles. Surprisingly, though, except for scuba-specific models, there's been almost nothing in the way of lights. Australian bike gadget manufacturer Knog recently set out to fill that void, by releasing its Qudos Action light earlier this month. I recently had a chance to get my hands on the thing, and liked what it had to offer.  Read More
