Action Shot Camera – A POV Camera for Under $50

I love shooting videos.  Now my kids want to shoot videos as well.  The problem is, I don’t really love the idea of my 8 year old, running around, filming his Nerf wars with my $700 to replace iPhone 5.

Is Their a POV Video Camera for Kids?

This got me searching online for an inexpensive video camera for kids, ideally one that they could strap to a helmet or their handle bars.  I quickly found the GoPro, which is a highly regard POV camera, but at $200, that was more than I wanted to spend for my 8 year old.

A few more searches and I think I found the perfect video camera for kids.  It is made by Jakks Pacific and is call the Action Shot Camera.  It is a POV video camera and it is made for kids.  Maybe the best part…the price.  At $49.95, it is not going to be the end of the world if my son smashed it.

Here is a great video review of the Action Shot Digital Video Camera –

I Will Review the Action Shot Camera and Report Back

After watching the above video and reading the review of the Action Shot Camera, I am sold.  I am going to pick one up this weekend and have my son try it out.  No, it is not HD (that would cost $99 for the HD Action Shot Camera) but I doubt my son and his friends care.

I’ll let you know how the Action Shot Camera works!
