The Best Action Cameras for 2020

The Best Action Cameras for 2020

While waterproof cameras are great for bringing on board, action cameras are ideal for capturing footage of other high speed sports and outdoor pursuits. If you're looking to buy an action camera for your next yachting adventure, we've tested all the latest action cams from GoPros to the best 360 sports cameras money can buy...

GoPro Hero 8, £379.99

The best known brand out there still leads the pack. High definition 4K video mode captures smooth videos which can also be replayed in 8x Slo-Mo. It is waterproof to 10 metres, features a touchscreen, excellent image stabilisation and offers 14 different voice activated commands.

Garmin VIRB Ultra 30, £389.99

Garmin's offering to the field of action cameras is not to be underestimated. Film in ultra HD 4K/30fps combined with 3-axis image stabilisation to capture smooth content, no matter the terrain. It's also handsfree and boasts a high sensitivity microphone and built-in sensors and GPS capture G-Metrix data to prove how far, how high and how fast you went.

Sony FDR-X3000, £499

The Sony has decent specs – 4K video at 30fps, slow-mo up to 240fps and stills at 12 megapixels. But the highlight is its astonishingly smooth image stabilisation. Comes with a waterproof case and a remote touchscreen controller for wearing on the wrist.

DJI Osmo Action Camera, £329
