TOP 5 KID ACTION CAMERAS
Kids action cam (learn more here) do not focus about photo quality and the shutter speed. Children have no ideas what they are. All of them just want to press the button and dial some actions to create a photos/videos.
So based on some professional researches recently, kids action cam is suitable for those children under 6 years old I think. Because at this age, they only need to learn how to use a camera, not how to create a best photos.
Therefore, kids action cam manufacturers have created some models which are very easy to use and they are very tough and light. Remember to buy accessories if they use the camera on their bike and wear them on their head.
These top 5 kid action cameras are the best models I have tried so far. For me, you should not invest more although you can buy them expensive ones.
For those who have children over 9 years old, I suggest you trying higher models which are also very easy to use and tough.
