KeyMission 80 named one of the top five gadgets for summer

When so many action cameras are almost clones, this “lifelogging” camera that looks like a small digital voice recorder stands out as something truly different. Clip it on your backpack or pop it in your pocket, this offers the convenience of one-handed use with a 12.4-megapixel main camera with a 80-degree view and 4.9-megapixel selfie shooter plus the SnapBridge app that automatically transfers your photos to your phone. There’s a 1.7-inch touchscreen and it’s waterproof to 1m. It’s certainly not the toughest of tough cameras but at just 74g it’s delightfully compact and convenient for those who just want to snap the shot and keep going.
