Initially, the camera was developed for outdoor adventure, sports enthusiasts and athletes. Within no time, It became an instant hit among adventure enthusiasts, they started using the device, to log their activities in real time videos. Later years saw a video revolution emerge from the shadows, everyone was making videos, this revolution made the demand for portable action cameras reach new heights,
