New Helmet Thumb

The age of the helmet camera is upon us. Thanks to increasing demand, new manufacturers are constantly entering the game while established industry pacesetters are rapidly improving their products. Add in ever-changing technology and suddenly picking the right way to share content with your friends becomes quite a challenge.

We tested current models from the top manufacturers side by side. Because these cameras each operate differently, it proved impossible to pick a clear winner. We made a pros and cons list for each camera to help you pick the best one for your application. We shot each camera at 30 Frames Per Second at a resolution of 1920x1080. All cameras were set to auto.

Note: We tested the most current products from each manufacturer at the time of this review. These manufacturers may have introduced new products or updates since our review.
