It’s that time of year again: The Holiday season! This is the time of year where we go crazy with our pocketbooks and buy a bunch of fun gifts for ourselves and others. With Black Friday right around the corner, we wanted to start this gift guide with one of our favorite types of technology: Creator Cameras!

Overall Winner

DJI Osmo Pocket 3 Creator Combo

The DJI Osmo Pocket 3 Creator Combo is the most remarkable portable camera to hit the market in years. It’s the ultimate evolution of what we hoped the DJI Osmo Pocket series would become. It sports a 1-inch image sensor, gimbal stabilization, and a tethered wireless mic (with the creator combo). It also has a host of accessories like magnetic ND filters as well as wide-angle and black pro mist lenses. This camera is a total game changer for creators and it is a must-buy for your video content gathering needs.

Price: $669

Best Action Camera

DJI Osmo Action 4

Let’s face it: the GoPro Hero 12 Black is barely an upgrade over the 11. Simply put, GoPro blew it this year. Thankfully, DJI picked up the slack with the DJI Osmo Action 4. The Osmo Action 4 features a new 1/1.3″ inch image sensor, 10-bit and D-Log M modes, and the best magnetic quick-release system ever to grace a camera. It’s also way more competitively priced than GoPro’s “upgrade.”

Price: $399

Sony ZV-1 II Vlog Camera

The Sony ZV-1 II vlog camera is an outstanding portable camera for content creators. With a 1-inch-type stacked image sensor and artificially intelligent onbord microphone system, not to mention wide-angle lens, the camera is pretty great. It’s biggest issues are its high price point and lack of optical image stabilization.

Price: $899.99
