A digital camera for action video gives me the freedom to record and share an exciting day of events from my view, friends and family sports action from a gathering, or simply portraits of distant family members who are visiting to archive for future reference. It gives me a choice to shoot great video, when only a video will do my subjects justice, or high quality stills of those subjects when I choose.
A digital camera for action video allows me to carry one camera to perform the function of two. So there is only one camera bag to carry, an extra battery pak and, maybe, a lens or two. I get to travel light and still have all the capabilities I need to capture all the action and stills that I want.
I choose a good quality action camera from a reliable manufacturer that is waterproof, shock proof, light to carry, and has controls configured so it’s easy to set up quickly for shots in various environments. Better yet, it lets me reconfigure those controls as I choose. Of course, it also has some automatic functions, like face detection, that save me a lot of time.
Until next time, Happy Shuttering!
