Wazzup Pilipinas!

When it comes to traveling, one should take into account some things since even some slight details may be actually important. Many things will make your travel really memorable, and the memories will be pleasant. How to make them bright? The answer is to use an action camera.

Action cameras differ greatly. Compact and easy-to-use, they can be mounted on any surface, make high-resolution videos and photos with an incredibly wide angle of view. Many travel gurus and fans of active life mount the camera on a monopod and show us their adventures, extreme sports, diving, etc. These waterproof cameras are the best to catch the brightest moments of your life.

There are several reasons to take action camera when traveling. They are unlike any other kind of a camera. They're designed to be attached to helmets, surfboards, cars, and other objects. They're small, tough, and simple to operate with a lens that captures the world in high-definition video and a wide-angle fish-eye perspective.

Their small size and the POV footage has made them popular among extreme sports participants, who capture their adventures by attaching cameras to themselves or their equipment. They're also used by TV production companies where using a regular video camera would be impossible.

There are lots of options when it comes to buying an action camera in 2018 starting from wide-known brands like GoPro and Sony as well as less-known companies such as Veho and Olfi.

Image quality is one of the most important advantages of an action camera. GoPro, Veho, and Sony are really good in this area. However, it's always worth checking out frame rates rather than max resolution, because a lot of cameras shoot in 4K resolution, but some cheaper models use a frame rate of 15 fps, which makes the video look jumpy. If you're shooting in 4K, you want at least 30 fps or shoot in 1080p HD at 60 fps.

Some cameras also come with bundled accessories, even with an accessory for iPhone. If you want to take your action camera into the sea diving, you'll need a waterproof camera. If you want to make a video on a car, you'll need a certain mount. Some cameras come with a load of mounts and cases free with the camera, such as the Veho and Olfi, whereas others are less generous.

Tips to Select an Action Camera

First of all, look at three main aspects when choosing a certain type of the camera. You should choose a quality and small one. Consider your travel goals and financial ranges.

Quality comes first of all. You will definitely need the information about the photo quality, which is utterly significant. If you really want to capture awesome and clearly visible photos, you will need a camera with the proper quality. You should keep in memory one really essential point – don’t pay attention to megapixels. Some cameras may have different megapixels, but the quality will be the same. So why pay more for the same effects?

The second important aspect is portability. As you are going on a trip, you will need a small camera. Otherwise, your trip will be inconvenient and not that pleasant due to a heavy and big camera.

Price also matters. Undoubtedly, traveling requires some costs and the expenses are pretty big. Therefore, you should consider all aspects of your travel.

Finally, nothing makes a great trip like a good camera that will make your travel really memorable. Nowadays, you have a lot of different action cameras to select in the market. They are different and contain various features. Take a look and compare the most appropriate for your needs.
