Shoot and share your adventures

Make like the survival expert and share footage of your own adventures with the Bear Grylls BG-AC-1 Action Camera. Whether you're exploring old ruins, scaling a cliff face, or white-water rafting, you can capture it all in Full HD at 60 fps, for clear and smooth footage that's worth uploading.

Be prepared

Every keen Scout knows you should always be prepared. Luckily, you get a bunch of useful stuff with the camera, including a variety of mounts, cases, and tools, all bundled into a water-resistant pack. There's an adhesive mount to attach to a surface such as your helmet, and a tripod mount for stable shooting from unique angles.

Simple to use

You can check you've got the perfect composition thanks to the 2” screen on the rear. The touchscreen makes it easy to navigate menus, change settings, and playback footage. You can also shoot 14-megapixel photos, or make an impressive time lapse of the world going by.

Take on the elements

Wherever your adventures take you, this camera can handle it. Pop it in the waterproof case and it'll be sealed from the elements – it's IP6 dustproof and IP8 waterproof to 30 m, so you don't need to stop filming when you discover a waterfall, need to cross a river, or want to hit the dunes in a buggy.

GB Just point and shoot
For the money it's way better than anything else you can buy. Got for skiing and the image quality is fantastic.
Maybe take a second battery. Bit fiddly on the go, but think they are all like that.

Lincoln GB Keen amateur
Nice price to include all the bits you need that Go-Pro charge extra for. Easy to use and set up with phone.
Battery life isn't great but then it's quick to charge.
