Liquid Image Ego
The smallest Wi-Fi-enabled action cam we've seen, the Ego measures 1.3 inches wide by 1.5 inches deep by 2.5 inches high and weighs just 2.4 ounces. A quarter-inch tripod mount gives you a lot of options when it comes to attaching it to your gear, but Liquid Imaging also makes mounts specifically for the Ego as well as an underwater housing that's good down to 130 feet.
The good: The Liquid Image Ego is very small and lightweight; simple to operate; has built-in Wi-Fi; uses a standard 1/4-20 tripod mount; and is shockproof to about 6 feet.
The bad: Limited shooting options; tiny on-camera controls and screen; 29-minute clip length limit; not waterproof; only one mount included; like many cameras, includes no storage; battery isn't removable; Wi-Fi connection lost while recording.
The bottom line: The egg-sized Liquid Image Ego wins on size and simplicity, but its features -- outside of built-in Wi-Fi -- are minimal.
