Action Camera BATTLE!

I’ve been buying gadgets since the day I got my first paycheck. Which means I’ve got tonnes of old phones, VCRs, cameras etc. sitting in my cupboards. Not too long ago I bought myself a GoPro rugged action camera, and thought it might be interesting to compare my new gadget to one of its ancient ancestors. (Ancient being a relative term.) 🙂

How far has Action Camera technology advanced in the last decade? I test an old action camera against a similarly priced GoPro to see how much has changed. In the process I check out the Birmingham canals and their wildlife, mountain bike along a towpath, and visit the site of the forthcoming HS2 railway station at Curzon Street.
