The best action cameras to keep on board

If you're a superyacht owner then your opportunities for adventure are endless. Perhaps your next trip will take to the icy wilds of Antarctica or the remote shores of Chile? Or maybe you'll finally master that jet board flip you've been practicing all year. Wherever your yachting travels take you, capture every moments with these stand-out action cameras...

GoPro Hero 7

The best known brand out there still leads the pack. Its high definition 4K video mode runs at a smooth 60fps, or shoots at up to 240fps for slow-mo replays. It is waterproof to 10 metres, features a touchscreen, voice activation and excellent image stabilisation.

£379.99, gopro.com

Removu K1

For a more fluid image, Removu has combined its 4K camera with a three-axis gimbal. It shoots high definition footage, slow-mo and takes 12 megapixel stills, plus there’s a selfie function and a smartphone app.

$399, removu.com

YI 4k+ action camera

This little black box shoots wide-angle 4K video at 60fps and stills at 12 megapixels. It features a 5.6cm touchscreen and can be controlled by smartphone app and voice. It even supports streaming.

$219.99, yitechnology.com

Olympus Tough TG-Tracker

It’s heavy, at 180g, but exceptionally rugged with waterproofing to 30 metres. The camera performs well enough – 4K at 30fps, or 60fps in simpler HD mode, plus 8 megapixel stills. And its sensors cover everything from GPS to barometric pressure and add data to the video.

From £179.99, olympus.co.uk

Mokacam Alpha

Billed as the world’s smallest 4K action cam, the second-generation alpha weighs 79g and is just 4.5cm x 4.5cm. It records 4K at 30fps, or slow-mo at 120fps, and shoots 12 megapixel stills. Has a clever removable screen module and a magnetic battery booster.

$319, mokacam.com

Sony FDR-X3000

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.

£499, sony.co.uk
