REVIEW: Which Video Camera should you Buy? Action Cam or Camcorder?


? Have you ever asked yourself, “Which camera is right for me?” or “Which camera is best for my needs?

There are a lot of ways you can capture video these days. Smartphones do a really good job and they are always on hand, but they are not a jack of trades. There are times when you need something better. Then comes the decision, which camera do I need? Do I need a point and shoot, a dslr, a sports actions cam, or a camcorder?

In this in-depth video I do extensive testing to compare a sports action camera and a camcorder head to head. I talk about the strengths of each and provide visual samples for comparison. All in an attempt to answer the question; “Which type of video camera should you buy?”
