Editor's Notes

January 08, 2019:

Above all else, action cameras must be able to take a beating without becoming damaged. Any model that will break or stop recording because of an impact or being submerged shouldn't be allowed to call itself an action camera in our opinion. We made sure to only include the toughest models around. We also did our best to identify as many options as possible capable of shooting in 4k.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
