Tips on Choosing Your Next Action Camera

If your planning on using an action camera to capture your daily commute you will want to consider the size and weight of a camera when it is attached to your helmet. Its also worth considering what mounts and attachments can be brought for your camera which will allow you to install it where ever you want.

Battery Life needs to be taken into consideration as without adequate power you will not be able to capture your full journey.

Using the camera in the winter time might mean it has to tolerate a great deal of heavy rain, so consider buying a camera which is waterproof or at least water resistant.
