What to Look for in Action Cameras

These days just about anyone can shoot photos and videos like a professional action photographer, with pro-level cameras at hobbyist prices.

In 2002, GoPro was founded by entrepreneur Nick Woodman, who was inspired during a surfing trip to Australia but wasn’t able to obtain good action shots due to amateur photographers not being able to get close enough to the action, or even having access to quality equipment. In the years that have followed, photo and video capturing technology has evolved eons--with modern cameras boasting features such as voice control and social media video streaming.
