Best Action Camera Under £50

Thanks for taking the time to read our reviews of the best action camera for under £50, that is currently available on the UK market. The good news is that there are plenty to choose from.

However, in our reviews we only ever look at the top 2 buyer rated products. So in this article, we look at the winner and the runner up for the best action camera under £50.

We could show you a top 10 list, but let's be honest, you want to know about the best one, and not a lot of other information that clouds your buying decision. We like to add a runner up though, as most of our readers have told us, that they prefer one or two choices.

At this website we specialise in doing a lot of UK based product research. While it is nice to know what is happening globally, it really doesn't help our readers, when they are looking to buy a product such as an action camera, here in the United Kingdom.

To achieve this, we have completed a lot of research by visiting the different websites that sell these types of action cameras. On those websites, buyers have the opportunity to rate the products that they buy. Usually that is either as a star rating such as Amazon, or a 1-5 rating, and sometimes a 1-10 rating.

We collect and examine those important buyer ratings and then work out an average buyer satisfaction rating, which we score out of 100%. You will then see that score shown below in the summary review for the top 2 action cameras.

We also give you a general description of each camera, and then a summarised section on what the buyers liked, and what they didn't like.
