Here, we pick five of the best action cameras available now.
If you’re in the market for a 360-degree camera, the GoPro Max is top of the range. With offset front- and rear-mounted lenses, this nifty device takes 360-degree 18MP photos and videos that can then be stitched together on the GoPro app.
Olfi one.five Black
A great budget option, this 4K camera has a microphone, LCD screen and speaker, and does the basics very well. The waterproof case for an extra £25 is also excellent.
Insta360 One R Twin Edition
Clipping together like a jigsaw, this clever camera is really several in one. Users can choose between 360-degree footage or high-quality 4K wide-angle footage, depending on the lens attached, and the camera is easy to adapt on the go - although the fact that it is in separate pieces could make it less durable than some models.
DJI Osmo Action
Drone camera specialist DJI’s first 4K action camera gives GoPro a run for its money. With a rear touchscreen and front-facing screen, the Osmo Action has great image stabilisation thanks to DJI’s expertise in flying tech.
GoPro Hero 9 Black
This excellent, waterproof model from GoPro has a big sensor that can shoot 20MP stills and 5K/30fps video. The camera has a vlogger-friendly front-facing screen as well as a larger rear one.
