Looking for a camera that's powerful enough to capture all of life's incredible, action-packed moments, yet small enough to fit inside your pocket or clip inconspicuously onto your clothing? Say hello to the Insta360 GO 2, the 26-gram action cam that delivers powerful performance despite its diminutive size.

When I was shooting video as a one-person crew, to get some of the motion shots of cars or other moving vehicles, I needed a camera that I didn’t have to worry about operating but which also had high enough quality to match my main camera as closely as possible. I settled on different action camera setups since they have a few qualities that are indispensable to a filmmaker or videographer who needs to add motion shots or angles that aren’t possible with their main camera. Below are five reasons every filmmaker needs an

GoPro had another one of its "hold my beer" moments when the action camera industry released the 4K action camera—how about a 5K action camera? Just introduced is the new HERO9 Black action camera that records stunning 5K30 video and 20MP still photos using an enormous 23.6MP sensor packed into its tiny form, and it also has room enough for a front display, as well as a large rear touchscreen.

GoPro is not just the leader in the action camera field, its name is synonymous with the very type.

You've been recording with your great new action camera—maybe a GoPro, Osmo Action, or one of the many action cameras available—but the included accessories may not be very helpful as you try to enhance your production. The good news is: there is a ridiculous number of accessories you can purchase. The bad news is: there may be too many to choose from. While you can probably find basic accessories from the manufacturer of your camera, there are many third-party manufacturers making creative and useful accessories for action cameras. Let's look

In a way-back-when era, I had just purchased my Sony XDCAM PMW-EX1R for corporate and documentary projects and was getting lots of work with matching EX1 productions, since it was a pretty popular camera. So, it amused me when I saw the 2009 feature film, Public Enemies, and learned that the PMW-EX1 gen 1 was used as a B camera to the production's Sony F23 main camera for a few action scenes and close-quarter interiors.
