Top action cameras available in 2017
The rule at the top of the Action photography world is that you pay for what you get. This applies for the photographs as well as for the cameras. The best brands there include Sony and GoPro. But, first a look at the action camera. This is a sturdy camera that you can mount on your helmet and has a wide-angle lens. You need this to cover the sporting action on a slope or on the fast track. You may even attach it to a hockey stick and they are best for video shooting.
APEMAN 1080p Full HD
Costing only 2,500 INR on Amazon, the APEMAN Action Camera is the best budget camera one could buy. This SLR Films Camera has an included helmet mount, bike handle mount, and a waterproof case. The 12-megapixel camera has 170-degree ultra-wide angle. It is water-resistant up to 30 metres. You can use a microSD card with 32 GB capacity for recording.

GoPro Hero5 Black 4K video
