ABSTRACT About Action Camera Action cameras are used to capture extreme action sports or activities. Regular cameras are incapable of capturing high-speed actions and are not designed for harsh conditions, including extreme weather. In contrast, action cameras are compact, lightweight, designed for rugged conditions, as well as can be worn on the body or mounted on vehicles. These cameras can capture high-speed and high-quality images. The popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, is one of the major drivers of the global action camera market.
