Review - The Action Shot Camera Makes It Easy to Shoot and Share


Action Shot CameraOne of the things I remember fondly about being young, is riding my bike around the neighborhood while trying to master "death-defying" stunts.  I thought that I was the coolest girl around because I could pop a wheelie at will and ride for a short distance on just one wheel.  You know what would have been even cooler?  Being able to video tape it and share it with everyone I knew!

If you have a daredevil on your hands, then be sure to keep reading about the easiest way to shoot and share amazing action shots and stunts...with the Action Shot Camera!

I reviewed the following from JAKKS Pacific, Inc:

Action Shot Camera which retails for $49.99, but is currently on sale for $42.49 with FREE SHIPPING

Deluxe Mounting Kit which retails for $24.99, but is currently on sale for $19.99 with FREE SHIPPING

Get in the Center of the Action and Record Everything with the Action Shot Camera

Capture and share the action anywhere, with the Action Shot POV Camera! Attach to your helmet, bike, skateboard and more with the easy Click & Grip™ mounting system. Easy on-the-go interface means you can record POV footage and photos of all the action with just a few clicks. Upload your footage and photos to any computer (Mac or PC) with the included USB connection, then edit your greatest triumphs – or fails – with the included video editing software!


  • Multiple Click & Grip™ mounts
  • Helmets: Strap and Mounting Unit
  • Boards: Hinged flat mount for Skate, Surf & Snow to Camera Angle
  • Bikes: Handlebar Mount for BMX & Moto
  • Multiple, Strong Grip Adhesive Pads
  • Drawstring Storage Pouch

I couldn't get over how quick and easy it was to use the Action Shot Camera.  Simply take it out of its packaging, connect the USB dongle and hook it up to your computer in order to charge the battery.  Next, decide whether you'd like to record VGA or QVGA video or take photographic images with the camera.

I loved the time lapse images option whereby the Action Shot Camera would take up to 1500 images, one every 2 seconds.  The camera's internal memory can store up to 1,500 images like this and I was surprised at just how clear and crisp they were.  Of course, if you're moving too much, the photos can look a little blurry.  Here's a few of the best ones taken while my husband rode his Rockboard Scooter around the neighborhood:

Since this camera films in SD (Standard Definition), the images aren't as crisp as they could be.  If image quality is of the utmost importance to you, then be sure to check out the HD (High Definition) version of the Action Shot Camera.  Also, the Action Shot Camera allows for external memory storage via the microSD card slot, though its internal memory can store approximately 1.5 minutes of video.

I was equally impressed with the video footage taken by the Action Shot Camera.  Now my husband and I are too old for "death-defying" stunts anymore and our daughter is too young yet, but that didn't stop us from taking a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood while videotaping the whole thing!

In the video above, my husband had the Action Shot Camera strapped to his forehead, though with the Deluxe Mounting Kit, you can easily mount this camera to your helmet, bike handlebars or even your skateboard!  My husband kept saying over and over about how cool this would have been to have as a kid and I couldn't have agreed more.  Taking pictures and videos and then uploading them to your computer couldn't be more fast or simple.

If you'd like to put your child right in the middle of the action while letting them film the whole thing, then be sure to put an Action Shot Camera under the tree for them this year!
