2. Sony HDRAS100V/W Video Camera

The Runner Up

Sony HDRAS100V/W Video Camera

- Design: 7.0
- Features: 9.0
- Performance: 8.0
- Image Quality: 8.0

A very lightweight camera action, also it is now splash proof even for the times when to use without the case.

  • Price: For me, this falls on the budget friendly camera category. I got in on sale for only $199.95 with free shipping from Amazon. It’s half the price of other action cams out there but it performs better.
  • Design: Light weight, small and compact and very easy to mount in any surface, it’s secure to ensure that it won’t fall or slip of in an event where someone or something bumps on it. The camera is made of thick, high quality plastic and is splash proof and good to use in any environment.
  • Video Quality: Comparing the video quality of this camera to the others is where it fell short. It has a 13MP camera but the images and videos are not as HD as they have claimed. On the other hand, it does catch colors beautifully and you can record videos up to 1080p at 60fps so your videos will not get lost in sync.
  • Features: The videos are also pretty stable since it’s highlighted as one of the special feature of this camera; I expected it to do well in that area.

Polaroid POLC3 Cube HD Digital Video Action Camera

- Design: 8.0
- Features: 8.0
- Performance: 7.0
- Image Quality: 8.0

Cool action camera, it is a mini little small can record HD quality action, for those who need budget affordable hd action camera.

  • Price: One of the cheapest action cams that I’ve reviewed but I would say this is great for those beginners who don’t want to splurge on their first action camera.
  • Design: The first thing that came to mind when I first saw this cam on Amazon is the Instagram logo. It’s small, square and has a rainbow stripe on the side. It’s compact, sturdy and made of high quality rubber coating and feels good in your hand.
  • Video Quality: It has a 124 degree wide angle lens so you can take a bigger shot of your surroundings.
  • Features: You can buy a mount so you can attach it and take it with you on your journeys. The camera is equipped with a magnet at the bottom that’s designed to stick to any metal surface. It’s also water proof and weather proof.

Final thoughts

GoPro has established their brand as an action camera over the years. What gives GoPro the edge from its competitors is the size, how it’s able to capture HD videos and how it’s amazingly durable. I’ve seen GoPro videos with the camera being thrown out or fell unintentionally or intentionally and they are still as compact and intact after falling a hundred feet in the air.

I was excited to try out this camera once the package arrived. You have to buy different accessories for the camera so you can take it underwater, on skydiving, use it during extreme weather and more. The battery drains easily, better bring a charger or spare batteries with you.

The other two can also fare well with the competition and will do well as action cams, I would definitely recommend them to beginners but as far as features, durability and the image and video capture, the GoPro wins hands down for me.
