Action cameras have surged onto the scene in the last few years. GoPro has set the standard with top-of-the-line features and a whole slew of options for nearly every product category. One area that remains a concern is battery life. As cameras have become Wi-Fi-enabled and are now shooting at higher resolutions, recording time has suffered along the way. The best options on the market top out at around 90 minutes to two hours.

That’s where the Activeon Solar X comes in. While the built-in battery provides a standard two hours of run-time, the add-on X Station solar panels can provide an additional four hours of recording. Need more than six hours? There is an answer for that as well…

Digital camera darling Nikon is throwing its hat into a new product category this year. For the first time, Nikon will be manufacturing an action camera.

Nikon must feel that there is a market for not only action cameras, but one that can shoot 360-degrees of footage. So where does it fit in an already crowded product category filled with haves and have nots?

Action cameras are amongst the hottest holiday gifts this year as GoPro prices have steadily fallen and the market has been flooded with competitors. It’s no surprise that a product category once dominated by one brand is seeing its prices get undercut every day as more third-party brands get involved. The popularity and rise of crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter are also playing a large role in this shift.

A new action camera has recently launched with an eye on finding a spot amongst a sea of competitors. The YoCam uses a compact design and a laundry list of features to standout amongst the crowd. Its campaign page proudly proclaims that this product integrates the “functions of GoPro, DropCam, Lifelogging Camera, Selfie Camera, Dash Cam and more.” That’s high praise for a product that just passed its initial funding goal.
