Sony Action Cam Mini

Sony Action Cam Mini

While the newest Sony Action Cam is Mini, it doesn’t skimp on features. This pint sized marvel has integrated image stabilization, a live-view remote to simplify adjustments, and it can shoot 1080p at 60 frames per second. You can see just how well it held up against the bigger POV cameras on the market in our annual POV Camera Shootout. Price is $250 | More info at www.sony.com

DJI Inspire 1 Drone

DJI Inspire 1 Drone

The Inspire 1 Drone from DJI successfully bridges the gap between consumer toys and the big budget rigs found on Hollywood sets. Despite offering operators a range of advanced video tools, it is still incredibly easy to assemble and fly. If you watch mountain bike videos with any regularity, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen some of the beautiful 4k footage it can capture. Price: $3,100, or opt for the equally impressive consumer oriented DJI Phantom 3 for $800 | More info at store.dji.com

AmazonBasics Portable Power Bank

AmazonBasics Portable Power Bank

Video cameras and their associated peripherals tend to be power hungry little gremlins. Despite having multi-battery packs, we often find ourselves running low on extended trips, which is why we’ve started to carry rechargeable battery packs. There are a number of excellent options, but this little unit from Amazon charges devices quickly. It has enough juice to recharge an iPhone three times. Price: $20 | More info at www.amazon.com

Feiyu Tech G4 Gimbal

Developed specifically for GoPro cameras, it makes it easy to shoot floaty steady-cam footage that will blow your friends and family away. Price: $350 | More info at www.feiyu-tech.com
