Although the idea of a wearable POV camera dates back several decades, the first action camera to be offered on the consumer market was a GoPro.
The Story Behind GoPro
A young man was off on a surfing trip somewhere far off, and wanted to capture quality photos of all the action, but found there was no way to get close-up angles. This same young man also very badly wanted to invent something. That was in 2002, and that same year, Nicholas “Nick” Woodman founded GoPro. Two years of work later, the first GoPro was introduced, the

It seems like everything you buy these days has a video camera embedded in it somewhere. Computers, phones, gadgets, even game controllers stare back at you through unblinking, peephole-sized lenses. Whether this is a truly positive trend or the onset of Big Brother remains to be seen, but it makes you wonder how relevant dedicated video cameras are in the current landscape. The great HDSLR video revolution that started in 2008 compounded the problem for traditional video cameras: if you can get cinema-quality footage out of an
Each year, action-camera technology continues to improve and action-camera popularity continues to grow. Most major camcorder manufacturers now have at least one action camera, and there are a handful of other companies that specialize exclusively in action cameras and accessories for those cameras. Companies like GoPro, Drift and Contour have had the most success because they dedicate the bulk of their research to developing exactly the sort of performance the customer wants. Initially, the major manufacturers were a step behind, but in the
There are obvious reasons to choose a dedicated camcorder as a gift for Mother’s Day. For starters, it won’t ring in the middle of video recording. Next, the better camcorders contain an optical zoom lens that doesn’t degrade the picture resolution during close-ups, the way digital zoom does.

Additionally, some have innovative features like

In the summer of 2008, Nikon released the D90, a DSLR with an extra feature: HD video recording. It rocked the digital photography and video worlds. Suddenly photographers could shoot dynamite video and videographers could get the look and feel of a cinema camera without the cinema camera price tag. HD video quickly became the feature to look for in a DSLR. A new category of camera was born: the HDSLR.
HDSLRs are truly revolutionary. Their large sensors capture light better than any prosumer camcorder. SLR lenses are sharper and more
