If you’re doc­u­ment­ing cars whip­ping past you at the Sin­ga­pore Grand Prix or the view while scal­ing a glacier in New Zealand, you’ll want a rugged, com­pact cam­era with a broad field of view and highres­o­lu­tion video ca­pa­bil­i­ties, plus sturdy ac­ces­sories that help you cap­ture your cho­sen ac­tiv­ity from in­ter­est­ing an­gles. Phone ac­ces­sory EVO SP-PRO GEN2

A hand­held sta­bi­liz­ing tool that can pivot, this gimbal works with both An­droid de­vices and iPhones and can go up to 14 hours with­out be­ing recharged. Its han­dle has a scroll wheel and menu but­tons that of­fer con­trolled zoom and fo­cus— use­ful for tak­ing scenic shots mid-hike on Lan­tau Peak. evogim­bals.com; $249.

En­try-level OLYM­PUS TOUGH TG-5

Wa­ter-, ice- and dust­proof, this sturdy model lets you fo­cus on en­joy­ing dune bash­ing in Dubai with­out wor­ry­ing about er­rant dust par­ti­cles that might scratch the lens. Its new 4K movie ca­pa­bil­i­ties record vivid de­tails in ul­tra-high-def­i­ni­tion video, even while you're nav­i­gat­ing rapids or snor­kel­ing with schools of fish. getolym­pus.com; from $520.

360-de­gree RICOH THETA V

The four-chan­nel mi­cro­phone in the lat­est it­er­a­tion of this three-di­men­sional cam­era picks up omni-di­rec­tional au­dio, which comes in handy for record­ing the sights and sounds of a jun­gle trek. Wire­less re­mote play­back al­lows for rapid, ef­fort­less shar­ing, and re­cently re­leased plug-ins for the An­droid op­er­at­ing sys­tem give trav­el­ers the abil­ity to cus­tom­ize soft­ware to suit their spe­cific hob­bies. ama­zon.com; $397.

Drone DJI MAVIC PRO PLAT­INUM

Up­graded pro­pel­lers and mo­tors al­low this Wi-Fi– en­abled, 700-gram quad­copter to fly qui­eter and longer (30 min­utes straight!) than other mod­els. It's a game changer for cap­tur­ing scenes from above— say, whale-shark watch­ing in the Philip­pines or sail­ing aboard a yacht on the An­daman. store.dji.com; from $1,099.
