GoPro Hero 10 Black

There’s a very good reason why GoPros are more well known than the category they inhabit. A trailblazer in its field, the GoPro Hero 10 Black is the latest addition to arguably the number one adventure camera series of all time. Coming off the back of number 9, GoPro maintains its “ready for action” vibe with another epic action camera.

Keeping the same overall design aesthetic as the Hero 9, this all-new adventure camera has a host of new features that will make it a worthy upgrade and an exciting entry-point for action lovers.

Starting with the all-new GP2 processor, the GoPro Hero 10 Black upgrades its performance in low-light situations, alongside significant improvements to its HyperSmooth 4.0 technology, making sure even the most extreme video recordings will turn out smooth and stable.

Capable of recording 5.3K 60FPS and 2.7K 240FPS SLow-Mo Videos with its 23.6MP image sensor, it’s now even easier to compose your shots and operate your GoPro thanks to an included LCD on the front and rear LCD touch screen on the back. Couple that with a 10M Waterproof rating, and you have the king of adventure cameras. Need we say more?

DJI Action 2 Power Combo

Using the power of magnets to make swapping mounts fast and easy, the DJI Action 2 will always be able to find the best position to capture all of your most exhilarating moments. Featuring RockSteady 2.0 Image Stabilisation to smooth out even the roughest of adventures, the DJI Action 2 combines horizon levelling for a touch of class and professionalism to your results.

The DJI Action 2 is no pushover when it comes to photographic capabilities. Featuring a wide-angle lens at the front, with a 155-degree field of view, adventurers can record up to 4K 120FPS resolution, as well as high-quality 12MP RAW stills. When you combine that with its 10m waterproof resistance, as well as being dust and crush-proof, it’s a powerful action camera that won’t back down.
