What is an Action Camera?

How to make the most out of your action camera

An action camera also known as an action cam is a digital camera popularly used to record high-quality videos and images.

Action cameras are compact, waterproof, rugged, image-sensors and at surface level. You can take pictures in lapse mode and it also allows you to record high-resolution photos and videos.

Action cameras are compact and durable at the same time which directly means that you can mount them anywhere, anytime.

Action cameras are very easy to use as you don’t really need to have camera setting knowledge and manual focusing.

Let’s look at the 5 tips and tricks on How to make the most out of your action camera so you don’t miss out on capturing everything on your adventurous trip.

Play with the Angles

You will mostly find action cameras with a wide-angle lens which could be very beneficial for you to capture the perfect landscape picture.

So make sure you take full advantage of the wide-angle lenses and play with the angles to the fullest.

The wide angles allow you to get creative with your angles and position your camera at any angle.

Mounting an action camera to the end of a pole can even help you get a drone shot with your action camera.

Try Underwater Photography

The best thing about an action camera is you can take it underwater and do the transition from a land shot to an underwater shot.

Action cameras are capable of taking the best underwater shots, you’ll only need some underwater filters for colour correction.

You can also colour correct the image post-production if you don’t wish to waste your time in-camera setting.

Make Most Out of Your Action Camera with POV Shots

The action camera is best to highlight a particular point, location or your point of view which is very trending these days.

Capturing POV shots is a great way to make the most out of your action camera. While going on a long bike ride to the mountains, you can simply mount your action camera in the front to shoot a stunning POV video.

You can also mount your action camera on your helmet or while riding a car, mount it in the front to make the most out of your action camera.

Use it for Daily Shots

Use your action camera to capture daily shots

You don’t really have to use an action camera only while doing something crazy but you should also use it for daily shots.

It’s not necessary that you should only use an action camera for adventures such as bungee jumping or sky diving. Use them to shoot your everyday vlogs and normal travel vlogs.

Play with the Pace

Play with the pace

If you’re shooting with an action camera, make sure to keep the pace of the camera fast because the combination of the wide-angle and slow pace isn’t really good.

You’d want your audience to enjoy your footage but you’d also want them to understand what you’re trying to convey.

Learn to use several viewpoints and shorter footage instead of a single long shot. Even if the video isn’t action-packed, adding B-rolls and shots from several points of view can help keep it engaging, even if it’s a long one.
