Recommendations for Waterproof Action Cam
« on: 04 Sep 17, 10:11 »
Hi, I am looking for a good waterproof action cam for diving as my SJCAM 4000 WIFI just died.   ::)

Must have:
1) Waterproof at least 30m (with/without casing)
2) Good battery life (Can shoot more stuff before changing battery)

Good to have:
1) Wifi capabilities
2) Image stabilizing
3) good low light performance
4) Viewing screen (to see what I can capturing)

Any recommendations?   ;D

Currently looking at Sony FDR-3000, Sony HDR-AS50 and GoPro Hero 5 session. Anyone owns them? Reviews please!

Woah the rx0 looks nice.  ;D

However, since it is not marketed as an action camera, official waterproof housing and underwater accessories may not be available.  ::)
