GoPro Hero5 Black

Best GoPro to get right now

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
There’s much to like about the company’s new top-of-line GoPro, but being able to control the camera just by speaking to it turns out to be handier than you might think.



YI 4K Action Camera

Best 4K action cam for the money

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
An action cam with a lot of features, excellent video quality and a more affordable price, the YI 4K is undeniably a good deal.



360fly 4K

Best single-lens 360-degree camera

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
The 360fly 4K is just all-around a better camera than the original, and its excellent mobile app is a definite plus compared to competing cameras. You’ll just have to be forgiving of its image quality.



Ricoh Theta S

Best dual-lens 360-degree camera

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
Whether you’re looking to create content for your VR headset or just love cool camera gadgetry, the Ricoh Theta S is an excellent way to start creating spherical images.



GoPro Hero4 Silver

GoPro bargain to beat

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
It’s been well over a year since the Hero4 Silver hit stores and it’s still our top pick for its solid video quality, ample shooting options and built-in touchscreen.



Sony Action Cam FDR-X1000V

The Anti-GoPro for power users

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
Whether you’re a pro or just someone who wants the best possible video, the X1000V can go lens-to-lens with GoPro’s Hero4 Black, but with features that camera doesn’t even offer.



TomTom Bandit

Best for fast online sharing

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
The Bandit addresses perhaps the biggest complaint with action cams: Editing. It uses built-in sensors to pinpoint the most interesting parts of your videos and assemble them into a sharable clip sent straight ot your smartphone for sharing.



GoPro Hero4 Session

Best grab-and-go camera

Design : 9Features : 9Performance : 8Image qual. : 8
What it lacks in performance and features, it makes up for in design and ease of use. And thanks to a couple of price drops, this tiny waterproof cube of a camera is now worth buying.
