The world is evolving, and tech and cameras are beating nature-made evolution by a mile and that translates into lots of options. That said however, since its inception, GoPro has cornered its market. Actually, to be more precise, they have created, herded, captured, and fenced in a market. If you fancy yourself a sort Jacques Cousteau or Felix Baumgartner; a person who ventures to places where frost bitten fingers are like paper cuts , or getting ‘the bends’ is a right of passage, or perhaps you require an oxygen mask and G-suit, then in all likelihood you’re going to own a GoPro….or four. Or eight. As the single best selling camera in the world, there’s a good chance I’m right. Sony though is trying to take its own wedge of the pie with its slick Action Cam, and their evil geniuses are plotting to do it by going for everyone’s Achilles Heel…adorable exotic animals.

Thoughts & Whiskers
The Action Cam is great; it’s slimmer and prettier than a GoPro, it fits better on the side of the helmet and in the hand due to its elongated design, and results are brilliant. The thing is though, there’s not much wrong with the GoPros. And while most may admire the Sony, their bias is now too entrenched to like it. In fact, GoPros, while limited somewhat in a user interface, sort of make up for it because they can take a beating, and they just work. And they work, and they work and they work; like a mule with the juiciest carrot dangling at a lick’s reach and hot iron at its backside. Sony, knows this. As such, they need a new angle to grab our attention and it’s been done with a rather adventurous and mischievous rubber duck with a penchant for adventure. See him with some of nature’s most endearing and exotic animals below and tell us which cam you’d have and why!
