action cam Guide

What is a action cam

Actioncams are camcorder, which are small, mobile and digital operated. With them, moving pictures are photographed. The camcorders are protected against environmental influences, such as high and low temperatures, dust, moisture and shocks. This special camera is suitable for special or difficult tasks. Even at high speed you can make excellent and sharp videos and photos with excellent quality. The action camcorders are supplied with a lot of accessories, so they can be used even in the most difficult conditions. This makes a flexible use possible.

The most important functions

It is particularly important that the action camcorder take pictures that do not lose their sharpness, whether taken from the air, at high speed or underwater. In general, the case is very robust and stable and also very practical. A good Actioncam should withstand bumps, falls and large diving depths without any problems. Actioncams differ in other functions little of ordinary cameras. They are mostly via an LED display or over the mobile, via app, served. Videos and photos are stored either in the internal memory or on an SD card. To save battery and storage space, you can choose between different resolutions when recording videos and photos. With Intervallschaltung it is also possible with newer devices very many photos in a short time, or to create time-lapse movies.

applications

Actioncams can be used in different areas. Because they are easy on the most diverse objects, for example, the person, the helmet, the backpackon the jacket or on the equipment, they are often used by extreme athletes, skiers, surfers, divers, parachutists or cyclists. But also when skating, bungee jumping, on the halfpipe, on quads or motorcycles, or when hiking actioncams are used. The athletes‘ hands remain free to concentrate on the exercise of their activity. In addition, these sports are characterized by a certain dynamism. The movements are very fast, so that it is not possible with a normal camera to take moving pictures without blurring them. Actioncams are able to record these fast movements without problems.

Differences between one action cam and an underwater camera

Both cameras are different models with similar functions. An underwater camera is, as the name implies, mainly suitable for use in the water. An Actioncam, on the other hand, has many different uses, as described above. Why should one decide now for an Actioncam, if so, too Underwater camerasgives? The advantage of action camcorders is that they have a much better resolution for photos and videos. In addition, with the Actioncam not only pictures in great depth, but in any position, so even above the water. In addition, action camcorders are more robust than conventional underwater cameras. The accessories and housing are better equipped and versatile.

Various models in the test

As with almost every product, there are price and quality differences also with the action camcorders. There are cameras priced under 100 euros. However, then the image resolution is not very good. Most cameras in the price range have no HD resolution and also achieve no liquid frame rate. As a second camera or as a beginner model, these are perfect. The GoPro clone is available for under $ 100 and makes very good videos. The entry-level model GoPro Hero is available for just over 100 euros and is very suitable for the beginning. Mid-range models, such as the Sony HDR-AS100V ultra-compact action camcorders with professional features that cost up to 200 euros, usually make liquid videos in HD quality. Here should be paid attention to the frames. At least 30 frames per second are needed to record a fluid video. More money should be invested if the camera is to record fast movements with more action. The GoPro Hero 4 is currently the top model. It records professional quality videos. It is waterproof up to 40 meters and offers a 12 MP camera. It also has a Bluetooth, Protune and Wi-Fi feature. In the price category, this camera is high up. A cheaper alternative is the Rollei 7S WiFi Actioncam. This is waterproof up to 100 meters, has a resolution of 4k and offers a 16 MP camera.

advantages and disadvantages

Actioncams offer a very good video quality. Particularly moving pictures can be captured very well and sharply. They are characterized by a compact design and good workmanship. Action camcorders are waterproof, shockproof and protected against frost and breakage. Especially the low weight, which is below 100 grams in most cases, makes these cameras so beneficial. They can be fixed almost anywhere and do not bother. Another advantage is the many accessories, as well as cheap alternatives, which can be easily bought. Another advantage is the compatibility with quadrocopters. This allows outstanding moving pictures to be taken from the air. Unfortunately, the only drawback these cameras often have is the low battery power.

What should be considered when buying?

Who especially good pictures with the action cam would like to make, should pay attention to a high resolution and a low image noise. The actioncam should accurately reflect the texture and color. Also, the change from light to dark should work well with an actioncam with good image quality. So that videos can be played as smoothly as possible, should pay attention to a suitable frame rate. If this is too low, sports recordings will not play smoothly. To keep the pictures from stuttering, the camera should have at least 25-30 frames per second. A fast motion capture is best possible at 60 frames per second or more. In some cases, it makes sense to invest a little more and one action cam which operates at 120 frames per second. Before buying an Actioncam you should definitely look at the list of accessories. In order to meet the requirements in the outdoors, it is convenient to expand the camera with different brackets. Since, as mentioned above, in some actioncams, the battery life is the disadvantage, should be paid special attention to this. Because there is usually no power source outside to quickly recharge the battery. Normally, one has action cam a battery life of one and a half hours. Of course, a great advantage is to find a camera that has a longer battery life. More battery means more fun. For security there is the possibility to buy spare batteries and take them with you. When shooting with the camera, make sure that the action cam has an interval function. So even slow processes can be well recorded. Due to the short intervals, the action cam can take enough pictures.
