So what can you do with an action camera?

You can call it one of these bad boys and open the packaging by smashing into it with your iPhone. What? I saw that on YouTube .Oh yes, you have to have a particular type of image and be a racing driver, skateboarder, surfer. You need to go on flying foxes, in planes, climb mountains, jump off cliffs.There is no denying there are some incredible videos of what people do with action cameras. Life is big in 2015 . As when games were being pushed in the 90s then they are developing an online stereotype of the person who uses an action camera and telling you what it is for. Even when I bought mine it started with the question:

So what do you want your camera for? Surfing, snorkeling, skateboarding?

He thought he was being funny so I ignored him and responded, ” I don’t know. I have no idea. I don’t own one and I don’t know what they do, so would it be possible to tell me what these things do and then recommend one that would suit my beginner needs? I wouldn’t buy a top SLR still camera when I am learning about photography.

The conversation improved and I got a barrage of information which I could interpret and then he made some very good points. So I have my camera and my bits. Having explored it myself now I know I need a couple of other bits for my own needs.There are some really good people on YouTube who explain this all well. Don’t patronise me, don’t railroad me, don’t stereotype me – just help me to get learning and doing. My camera is so small and dinky it can go anywhere and yes, I could do what the second video is suggesting and take holiday shots. Both of these videos capture your imagination and your dreams. The first one has some refined artistic input. Action cameras can teach us a different way of learning and getting feedback on what we are doing. I am just going to battle the stereotypical uses and find out what normal people can do with these bad boys. Oh, for heaven’s sake.
