Pros and Cons About Action Cameras?
 
Hello

I am curently making a survey about action cameras. What I would like to know is what you think is good/bad about them (and why), and what changes/ features could be cool to have. If you could also comment about limitations you have run into with action camera, it would be great!

The more detailed the discriptions are, the better, and please refer to specific camera models.

looking forward to hearing what you have to say!

If you want people to help with your survey you're going to have to record a video intro.

Hahaha, I thought you were joking. I was going to give him my opinion but I want to see a video first.

I love action cameras...

because when I see someone wearing one I know they are most likely an attention whoring tool bag...and I know to stay away.

They can be fun but they are a lot of work. Don't bore people with uncut video. For a decent video you will spend 4X long in front of the computer as you did actually filming.

the quicker the cuts, and the more variations of shot angles, all the better for the watcher.

Here is an edit that I'm proud of, it's a couple of years old but it shows all the thought I put into various angles and ways of shooting with just POV cams.



"Lead Cam" is better than "Chase Cam"

One of the features I love with the Drift helmets cams is the helmet mount and the Universal Clip that comes with the camera. It allows you, with gloves on, to quickly remove and re-attach the camera with one hand. Even though I work for the resort and a helmet cam company, I don't want to "Look" like a tool bag in the lift line.

So the end of every run, I quickly remove the cam and stick it in my pocket before I even get to the lift line. Drift also has an auto off feature which works nice to save juice. Useful when you just shove it in that dry pocket. I'll stuff a napkin in there to absorb any moisture that that cam has. I get a lot of face shots even on the groomers.

Nothing worse that seeing a Teletubbie in the Men's room.
