HD action camera reviews

We compare 19 HD action cameras in the CHOICE labs, including models from GoPro, Sony, Garmin and more.

Last updated: 23rd December 2014

One thing we know about action cameras is that they end up taking a bit of a beating, so it's important to make sure you get one that can keep up with you. Action cameras continue to improve in video quality and support for wireless connectivity. Add in the help of smartphones and they're now a user-friendly proposition.  

You'll no doubt want something that shoots high-quality footage of your thrills (and spills). That's why we've tested 19 models to answer the burning question: is it still all about GoPro? 

Our review will help you find the best action camera based on:
  • daylight quality
  • low light quality
  • artificial light quality
  • still photo performance
  • battery life.
