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!
