In many cases, the videos that kids make for other kids to watch are made on different action cameras.

Action cams for kids are everywhere, and now, kids have durable, affordable options of their very own.  Does Vtech Action Cam continue to lead the pack in electronics for kids?  Continue reading and decide for yourself!

What Is An Action Cam?

Action cameras are small wearable and/or mountable cameras that capture videos while the user does just about anything.

These cameras are made to be waterproof and virtually indestructible, making them safe for use on bikes, ATVs, motorcycles, while swimming, rafting or just running around on the playground.

In many cases, the pixel rating on action cameras is low, so the quality of the video is lacking, but for most kids, professional quality isn’t needed.

How Are Action Cameras Used?vtech kidizoom action cam in action

The kids versions of the action cameras are designed pretty much the same way as the adult GoPro cameras are.

The  camera can be mounted using one of several options – mounted to the handlebars of a bike, strapped to a helmet, worn on the chest using a harness of sorts or held by hand.

Many of these cameras come with a removable waterproof case. When the camera is locked tightly in the waterproof case, it can be used anywhere that water might be an issue.

It is safe to be fully submerged, worn while zipping down a waterside or out in the rain while splashing in muddy puddles.
