These devices are durable and portable cameras for taking fast moving physical action from a first person perspective. These are mainly used for capturing anything action-oriented from extreme sports to any intense situation that would put other cameras at risk.
These devices are portable 360 degree cameras meant to capture the full scope of your surroundings. These are mainly used for capturing photos/footage of vast landscapes or large areas, indoor/outdoor.
