Not everyone who straps an action cam to themselves plans to make a 4K professional video. This “basic” GoPro lacks high-end features but adds one key element many action cam first-timers crave: an LCD screen. It shoots 1080p high-definition video and 8-megapixel stills, has a button to tag highlights, and incamera video editing. It has wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity, although linking it to a smartphone will significantly drain its battery. One downside of its integrated housing and built-in battery is you can’t swap batteries when you run out of juice.
