It wasn't so long ago that we rounded up the best action cameras and put them to the test. Just half a year later, and the biggies all have new versions out. They're all better, but there's only one best. Round Two: Fight!
As you see in the video above, we tested the cameras in a variety of situations. We strapped three to a surfboard (the Drift wasn't yet announced) and surfed the leading edge of Hurricane Sandy. We set up static shots on the Gawker rooftop at different times of day. We tested each camera's various frame rates, still modes, and features. And then I strapped all four to my helmet and biked around Brooklyn (that rig, plus the Movember 'stache, elicited a lot of weird looks). Then we picked through the footage like the video-geeks that we are. Spoiler alert: none of these cameras objectively suck.
