If budget is a concern, this camera is a steal at just $60. The Akaso is the top-selling action camera on Amazon and has a 4.5-star average across more than 9,000 reviews. This wireless wrist remote control sports camera, offers long battery life, built-in WiFi, and up to 30 frames per second for incredible photos, which is 4 times the resolution of traditional HD cameras.

DJI Osmo Action

The Osmo doesn’t have quite the same range of accessories yet of its rival, GoPro Hero7, but according to travelandleisure.com, it does have a color display on the front (which GoPro does not), along with excellent image stabilization and an easy-to-use interface. The camera will set you back about $348. 

Sony FDR-X3000 4K

Its slim design, impressive Zeiss lens, and excellent optical stabilization are just a few reasons why this camera has received excellent reviews in the action camera category. It also has a splash-proof body to ensure you can chase waterfalls all summer long. On the more expensive side, this camera costs $368 on Amazon.
