An action and sports camera offers you the ability to capture the most active moments of your life. These cameras can take excellent still photos. They also take clear video, and most are designed waterproof to make them perfect for water sports, including scuba diving. WiFi enabled cameras may even offer you the ability to live stream. When considering these products, check out the promised video quality. A 1080P image is common, but 4K is available on the market. The 4K will take up a lot of memory, though, and may be harder to steady for a decent shot. Watch closely for quality, some less expensive cameras do a good job. Others will be a disappointment. Some of these cameras are a little difficult to learn how to use. A good choice will come with a variety of mounting options, because that is the point of the sports and action camera, to be able to mount it on the move wherever you go.
