Deciding Factor One of many reasons to buy an action camera is the conveniently small size. I was looking for something to compliment my phone in recording videos of the trip.

These days, phone camera are sufficient for casual shoot and videography. You may check out my blog on my Huawei P20 Pro. This made my trip more enjoyable as I can travel light without the need to bring my mirrorless camera.
