Garmin Virb Camera

You're all familiar with the standard feature-set of an action-sports camera by now, so it should come as no surprise that the Garmin Virb Camera ($400) is waterproof, highly-portable, can attach to just about anything, and shoots video in HD. But, because it's made by Garmin, the Virb brings something extra to the table. Full GPS connectivity, an altimeter, and an accelerometer mean it can do things like record your location, measure your speed, and determine your altitude (letting it intelligently shut off at the bottom of a ski run and turn back on when you reach the top). It also easily connects to smartphones, tablets, and other Garmin devices, while a wide-angle lens with distortion correction lets you capture huge images without a fisheye effect — and pressing play is as easy as sliding a switch.
