Activeon cameras offer an affordable option to capture memorable moments of your life while allowing you to enjoy the moment you’re in rather than holding up your phone or camera in hopes of capturing something special. I loved out trips to Disney World but at the end of every trip I remember seeing at least one or two pictures I didn’t even remember taking. So instead of enjoying the trip I found myself regretting the moments I had missed. Not to mention the video I captured was usually choppy and likely staged as I tried to recreate a moment I missed with the camera.
Activeon Gives You Several Shooting Options
All of the cameras in the Activeon line have a wide range of shooting options, the DX, which is what we’re using, has incredible 152˚ wide angle lens. This means when taking still photos you’ll get just about everything you’re seeing with your eyes in the shot, it’s amazing! You’ll also have the option to shoot full 1080P video at 60 frames per second.
You can shoot any of these modes using the point and click method we’re all used to and the photos and videos will be beautiful. You can also mount the camera. We’ve used ours with a head strap and mounted it to a dashboard. From there you can turn the video on and allow it to film as you experience what’s in front of you. This could include any sport you can imagine; they even have a surfboard mount!
Something I’m excited for is the next trip to Disney World! With the Activeon app on my smartphone I can attach the camera to the stroller or even the kids and control it from my phone. It even shows me the picture! I can’t wait to be able to live some of the Disney magic through their “eyes!”
Activeon Will Convert The Biggest Skeptic
When the hubby wanted to look into reviewing an Activeon camera I thought that it would be something we might use once and then not want to hassle with. But what I figured out is that once I added this I no longer needed my high definition camcorder. And while we aren’t incredibly active people, THOSE KIDS RUN US RAGGED!
We’ve taken this camera on two trips already, Oregon and the Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. And because of this camera we’ve gotten some incredible videos and pictures that we wouldn’t have had the ability to capture if not for this incredible camera!
The Activeon cameras will really surprise you, their size and convenience are incredible. When you compare the price with their competitors similar model and look at the features the competitor lacks, it will really blow your mind. With Father’s Day right around the corner, any dad would be thrilled to get such an incredible gift, and you’ll be thrilled to be able to look up from the camera at the next event!

The Activeon DX model sounds like a great option for me. I love taking pictures of landscapes so the wide angle will capture everything.
That sounds like a great gift idea for Father’s Day. My husband love mountain biking and I know he’d love to record his rides.
Christy Maurer says
The fact that it is water resistant is awesome! It looks like it takes great pictures as well. I’m sure all the active dads would love getting this for Father’s Day!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
I know this was a Father’s Day gift idea, but I totally want this! I’m the photographer of the family, anyway!

That really IS a great gift idea. Not only would my husband love one of these, but I would, too. It would get a TON of use in my family!
This is just what I need. I’m the one who’s always taking pictures and I don’t get to enjoy the views when we go places.
Nancy (@spiffykerms) says
Man! I need something like this for my youtube vlogging! Looks like a great camera.
What a great Father’s Day gift idea! I hate when I try to take a photo from inside the car and all I get is inside the car. I would love to mount this camera on the dashboard and take awesome photos.
This sounds like a great option. I am also guilty of living life through the lens.
Sandy KS says
Oh that camera would make a great gift. I love taking photos on trip sand wide angles.

The camera looks super amazing! I would so love to give this as a gift for Father’s day, it would make any father happy.
Liz Mays says
I could definitely use this for those activities where camcorders and DSLRs are unreasonable. What an awesome gift this would make!
This is so cool! I’m always the one taking the photos and missing out on being part of the memories. This camera would allow me to rest and take in moments with rest of the family.

This looks like a really neat camera. But for $150-250, I am not sure that it is really worth the cost. My iPhone takes great pictures.
This would make a great father’s day gift!! I think my Dad would use it on the boat! LOL!
I don’t know about gifting it to my dad… I will have to look into this for myself. lol. He’s just uses the camera on his phone. Thanks for sharing this… I’m actually shopping for a camera.
This sounds like a really cool camera and a great Father’s Day gift! We are always on the go and it would e a great way to capture all the moments!
This is a great fathers day idea. Perfect for my hubs for sure. I am still trying to buy something for him, as my kids make him their gifts so this is a great idea!
I am currently looking to upgrade from my point and shoot to a higher quality camera. I may have to look into this one, it looks like a great camera.
What a sleek camera and the pictures are really nice. I have no doubt my husband would love to have one. I would love to have one too. 🙂

That does take really great pictures! I don’t think anyone would protest getting a camera as a gift.
Uplifting Families says
This looks like a great camera. My husband would love one.
Maria-Teresa Andreacchi says
Wow this looks awesome I bet any man into technology would love this. Great way to capture all the important moments for your family!
My husband would love one of these for Father’s Day, and if they’re more affordable than other brands, then I will definitely be looking into it.

I like the way the images on the bottom look, but that ball field image almost looks weird. It looks like it has been edited 🙂

Hmm. This sounds like a great birthday gift…. for me. My husband hates to take pictures so I rarely end up in photos since I am always the one taking them. lol

This seems like a great camera indeed. I loved the video but do think I could never try this because I am afraid of heights myself. This would make a great Father’s Day gift. Thanks for sharing,
