Contour Roam3 Hands-On: Shaky First Steps Back

The last time we saw an action-camera come out of Contour, it was for the Contour+2. Image quality was pretty good, but the mounts were way too fragile, and under the shadow of GoPro's colossal market-share, Contour shuttered its doors. But now it's back! And its first product back is... a slight improvement on its… » 9/23/14 12:00pm 9/23/14 12:00pm

Polaroid Cube Review: A Tiny Adorable Camera

The Polaroid Cube is a delightful little camera that takes still shots and video. Like the name suggests, it's a tiny cube just 35mm on a side. It sticks to any and all magnetic surfaces—even your dinner fork. It can be tossed around and taken out on the town and record all of life's oh-so-precious moments. But so… » 9/23/14 8:00am 9/23/14 8:00am

Sony's Latest Action Cam Has an Awesome Wrist-Mounted Controller

So far, Sony's Action Cams have failed to make a significant challenge to the GoPro: the challenger just isn't a better product. But the company bets that if it can develop enough cool accessories and mounts for its Acton Cam line, maybe—just maybe—it'll find its market. And we gotta say, the optional wrist-mounted… » 1/06/14 8:00pm 1/06/14 8:00pm

Liquid Image Ego LS Action Camera Has 4G for Instant Bragging Rights

Liquid Image has a new action cam coming out in June. It looks very not-unlike a GoPro. It shoots 1080p video at 30fps or 720p at 60fps. Nothing so outstanding there. What's unique, though, is that it'll attach to a 4G module. In other words you can instantly stream video from anywhere. That means your friends can… » 1/05/14 9:03pm 1/05/14 9:03pm

Ion Air Pro 3: The Waterproofiest Naked Action Cam Around

Ion may not be the first name you think of when it comes to action cameras (or the second), but the company has been around for a few years. The original Air Pro came in third in our action camera Battlemodo back in June of 2012, but it left us hungry for better image quality. The Air Pro 3 might just satisfy. » 10/30/13 9:00am 10/30/13 9:00am

GoPro Studio 2.0 Hands-On: Easier, Awesomer Videos (UPDATE)

GoPro, the Q-Tips of action cameras, recognized a problem. People are shooting tons of footage with their cameras, but are then letting it languish away on a dusty old hard drive, unseen and unedited. The California company is hoping to help correct that with new mobile apps and desktop editing software. » 9/09/13 9:23pm 9/09/13 9:23pm

Sony Action Cam Redux: Let's Try Again, This Time With Built-In GPS

Exactly a year ago, Sony dove into the GoPro-like adventure camera market only to leave us wanting a little more from its tiny Action Cam. The new AS30V comes with a few new features, including GPS connectivity and higher-resolution 12-megapixel stills. Is that enough to finally make Sony's Action Cam a real… » 9/04/13 11:00am 9/04/13 11:00am
