WHAT’S HOT A quick reading of the instruction manual is all it takes to learn the settings of this camera, which is as easy as any sports camera to operate. It’s jam-packed with cool features, including six white balance settings, Wi-Fi that connects to the WASPcam app and time-lapse controls. The camera has a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, and among the resolutions for video are 4K at 24 frames per second (fps) and 1080p at 60 fps. It has a waterproof exterior, which can be taken down to 98 feet. Files are recorded on a microSD memory card.

A 170-degree wide-angle lens with a 4x digital zoom gives you a great view. And everything can be reviewed on a 1.5-inch LCD screen. The camera is powered by a 1050-mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery. There’s also a port for micro USB to TV for easy connection to view on your big screen. Several mounts and brackets are included. Other features include antishake technology and GPS tracking.

WHAT’S NOT It’s a bit pricey but worth the money if you’re an adventure and camera buff.
