For what it's worth, the only person who claimed that Schumacher's injury was caused by his action cam was some French F1 radio show host who later had to admit that it was pure speculation (after everybody took that news and ran with it). To my knowledge, nobody in the medical community made any kind of link between… » 4/15/15 4:28pm Wednesday 4:28pm

Garmin VIRB X and XE: One of Our Favorite Action Cams Is Leveling Up

The Garmin Virb Elite was one of our favorite action cams a year ago, which was a big surprise from a company known more for navigation and sports watches. It had some unique features and impressively sharp optics. It was big and bulky, though, and it topped out at 1080p/30fps, so it couldn’t hang with the big boys.… » 4/13/15 7:00am Monday 7:00am

Moto Maker for the Moto 360 Hands-On: Pretty Watch Gets Prettier

Not literally nothing—but so little that my body could not perceive… » 4/06/15 3:10pm 4/06/15 3:10pm

The Best Action Camera For Every Need

If I’m going to be doing stupid things that risk the health of my various important body parts—and I do, often—I want to make sure I capture those moments so I can relive them later. That’s how I elbowed my way into the action camera beat more than three years ago, and I haven’t looked back. » 4/03/15 1:21pm 4/03/15 1:21pm

Sony 4K Action Cam Review: Still Not Enough to Beat GoPro

Can Sony catch GoPro? It keeps coming close. Each new Sony action cam almost manages to reach GoPro’s lauded quality, but doesn’t quite seal the deal. With the new high-end 4K Action Cam, Sony looked like it might actually leapfrog GoPro’s flagship Hero4 Black. It doesn’t. » 4/02/15 4:00pm 4/02/15 4:00pm

Microsoft Surface 3: Slim, Light, and Running Full-On Windows

It took a couple tries, but Microsoft finally had a critical hit with the Surface Pro 3. It was what we wanted the first Surface to be. It wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty damn useable. But at $800 (and going up to nearly $2,000), it’s also expensive. The Surface 3 is Microsoft’s attempt to get in on that… » 3/31/15 9:00am 3/31/15 9:00am
