Christmas Gifts For The Adventurer/Sportsperson
GoPro kicked off the action camera revolution by showing the world you can squeeze HD video and a quality lens into a tough and tiny body.
Stripped back to a bare minimum, no viewfinder, no screen and minimal control buttons. the GoPro is now available in half a dozen versions, from the tiny HERO Session to the the top of the line 4K HERO 4 Black.
Time lapse, friendly features, and easy connectivity (WiFi & Bluetooth), make this the perfect choice for capturing your cycling, running, surfing and skiing adventures.
For people that still want a fully featured camera with all the controls that we’ve grown accustomed to, there is a huge range of “tough” camera to choose from.
Leading the pack for years, Olympus is a great brand to start with. The TG4 s the latest in a long line of Olympus Tough cameras, built to withstand the most punishing conditions, the TG-4 is waterproof to 15M, crushproof to 100kg and shockproof from drops up to 2M. As well as the rugged build quality that Olympus has become famous for, the TG-4 also ups the ante with class leading image quality and the previously unheard of ability (in shockproof cameras) to record images in the RAW format, allowing photographers more flexibility in post processing and editing of their images.
Capture the action from new and exciting angles with a Drone camera, fly above buildings and across the water with one of the many different models available.
With video quality ranging from regular standard definition all the way up to super professional 4K Hi-Def, there are models available for beginner to advanced videographers.
Prices start from only $150, which means anyone can afford to take their photography and videography to new heights.

It doesn’t matter how good your camera is, if it’s lost at the bottom of the ocean, it won’t be much good to you.
That’s why we always recommend a floating strap for your action camera, whether you’re in the middle of the ocean or on the edge of the swimming pool, you can rest easy knowing that if you drop your camera, it will happily float to the surface. It’s that simple :-)
