Sena Prism Action Camera Preview Radical new design communicates with and controlled by a Bluetooth 4.0 intercom system. Sena GoPro Pack (review) now adds the same capability to a GoPro camera.

Garmin VIRB Preview Solid build quality and IP7 water-resistant. Here’s a quick preview of the brand-new Garmin VIRB action camera.

Sony Action Cam Review Sony dives into the action cam market with a disappointing result.
JVC GC-XA1 Review The JVC GC-XA1 is also our new class leader for motorcycle “action” camera video quality. Delkin Wingman HD Review A few interesting features with very good video quality. Not quite the equal of the class leaders though. Replay XD 1080 Review This 2011 webBikeWorld Product of the Year is a beautifully made camera that takes excellent quality video.
