Stuff Gadget Awards 2022: Best Action Camera of the Year

Lights, action camera!

This year saw some solid new action cams all-around, from the likes of DJI. But in this department we seem to have a hands down winner with GoPro’s new action camera. Here’s why!

Best Action Cam of the Year

GoPro Hero 11 Black

GoPro is to action cams what Ferrari is to red cars. So us picking the latest model in the company’s main Hero line as our action cam of the year may seem like a basic maneoveur, but we assure it’s not. What the camera is, is a rightful owner of this spot that has earned its hype in the market. The Hero 11 Black is everything you need and more. The key change from its previous generations is the new 27MP 8:7 aspect ratio image sensor, providing us much more scope when it comes to editing your visuals in the post editing sessions. It’s an acknowledgement of the 9:16 format beloved by our beloved Reels creators, but can more than adequately handle your everyday 1:1 and 16:9 formats. The point is that, no matter how you frame it, the camera has got your back, making it a sure-shot for this award.
