One of the biggest trends in smash-hit YouTube videos and feel-good commercials is the point-of-view camera shot. To capture these high-energy, extreme videos, you need a POV action video camera.
POV cameras work like other digital cameras, but they’re built to withstand extreme conditions. Many models are waterproof and shockproof for capturing video while surfing, skydiving, skiing and skateboarding.
The most striking feature of POV action video cameras is the way they mount to your gear. By connecting a GoPro to a helmet, the camera sees what you see, and your body acts as a natural image stabilizer.
