A new group of doctors could join consultants and junior doctors in taking strike action, union leaders have warned, in a fresh blow to government hopes of ending NHS industrial disputes.

The British Medical Association (BMA) said specialist, associate specialist and specialty (SAS) doctors would consider an indicative ballot on industrial action without an urgent offer on improved pay and working conditions.

Junior doctors staged a four-day walkout from Friday last week, and consultants will strike on Thursday and Friday next week and again for two days in September. Junior doctors are reballoting in an attempt to extend their strike mandate for another six months.

Specialist doctors have set the government a September 20 deadline for an acceptable offer


SAS doctors are senior medics who have chosen not to follow the traditional consultant or GP pathway. There are

Killexams : The 40 greatest action stars of all time

Moviegoers can't seem to get enough of the action flick. Good or bad, it's usually two hours when viewers can escape reality. Plenty of actors have made a living taking on action roles, so we figured we would look at 40 of the best action movie stars ever. We didn't include the folks at Marvel and DC because this is not about putting on a superhero costume to get the job done.



Though not the quintessential action star, the versatile Banderas has flexed his muscle in some memorable high-impact roles, most notably as a revenge-seeking mariachi in 1995's Desperado. He also stood out in Assassins, The Mask of Zorro, and as part of The Expendables franchiseHey, why not include his voice as the swashbuckling cat Puss in Boots?

Bronson was a tough guy personified, whether playing a cop. cowboy, or soldier. Bronson, a U.S. Army veteran, thrived mostly in supporting roles until the Death Wish films began in the mid-1970s when he was in his 50s. Bronson's work as vigilante Paul Kersey in those films turned him into a new generation of action-film fans.


Getty Images

Cage won an Oscar for his role as a down-on-his-luck alcoholic in 1995's Leaving Las Vegas, but he's also done well in the action genre. Mainstream hits like The Rock, Face/Off, and Con Air made Cage a bona fide action star and showed a bit of his creepy side on-screen. Though the 2000s weren't nearly as successful for Cage, he showed up well in the adventure thriller National Treasure in 2004.


Getty Images

The pride of Hong Kong has done a nice job of mixing his martial skills with some solid comedic timing, thus becoming one of the biggest action stars ever. It took some time for the former stuntman to enjoy mainstream success, but he ran with it when he did. Rumble in the Bronx (1995), the Rush Hour films, and even his voice work in Kung Fu Panda are some highlights of Chan's lengthy resume. 


Getty Images

As one of the better actors to take on the role of James Bond, Craig certainly gets a spot on this list. However, he had some quality action roles under his belt before taking over Bond from Pierce Brosnan in 2005, such as  Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Munich. He also should be noted for his high-impact work in Defiance (2008), Cowboys & Aliens, and even the 2017 heist comedy Logan Lucky.


Getty Images

Versatility is what makes Crowe one of the greatest actors of this generation. That includes his ability to take on action roles, none more so than in Gladiator (2000), for which Crowe won the Best Actor Oscar. He went for it again with such films as Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, 3:10 to Yuma, and Robin Hood. Though, some would argue his off-screen life might be even more action-packed.


Getty Images

It's only fitting that we talk action stars after Cruise reprised his role of Maverick in Top Gun: Maverick — the part that solidified him as one of the biggest names in Hollywood with 1986's Top Gun. While Days of Thunder followed suit, Cruise's stock as an action staple rose even higher when he became the leading man as Mission: Impossible was brought to the big screen in 1996His other notable action roles include Vanilla Sky, Minority Report, Collateral, the hilarious Tropic Thunder, Jack Reacher, and American Made.


Getty Images

The first — and arguably still the best — actor to portray the legendary James Bond character, Connery is an icon in every sense of the word, and perhaps solely for his Bond films. But there is much more to his action film resume. There's his Oscar-winning role as Jimmy Malone in The Untouchables (1987), and before that, The Man Who Would Be King and Highlander


Getty Images

As with any major motion picture star, especially leading male actors, eventually, they find their way into action thrillers. The superstars tend to get a franchise, and that's the case with Damon and the Bourne family of movies. His Jason Bourne roles proved Damon could succeed in action pictures. He's also come through in similar types of films like Contagion and Elysium, though the latter was not all that successful.


Getty Images

Diesel became an international star with his role as Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious (2001), and he has not looked back. He's the undisputed face of that particular franchise as well as that of the Pitch Black series of films (which includes The Chronicles of Riddick) and the XXX franchise.  


Getty Images

Eastwood might have a spot on the Mount Rushmore of action stars. Whether it's his work in such Spaghetti Westerns as A Fistful of Dollars (1964) or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) to the Dirty Harry series beginning in the 1970s and the '80s classic Heartbreak Ridge, Eastwood is at home with a gun in his hand and cigar in his mouth. One of the great American actors and directors ever, Eastwood is still as cool as they come.


Getty Images

Perhaps one of Hong Kong's most beloved actors, Chow seems capable of doing it all. That includes some stellar action work with prominent director John Woo and such mainstream hits as The Replacement Killers (1998), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007).


Getty Images

Ford is near the top of the list when it comes to the most popular action stars ever. Come on, the guy is part of arguably the two biggest movie franchises of all time in Star Wars and Indiana Jones, as two of the coolest characters in film history. Not to mention, he was stellar in Blade Runner, The Fugitive, and Air Force One. Of course, he also starred as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger.  


Getty Images

Say what one wants about Gibson's off-screen persona, the man has made some fine action movies. Gibson became a star thanks to the Mad Max series and Lethal Weapon movies but was elevated to a Hollywood giant with BraveheartGibson has never been afraid to take chances with films, both as an actor or director.


Getty Images

Star of the 1970s blaxploitation films such as Foxy Brown, Grier's characters don't take any lip from anybody. Playing tough female roles, Grier, who made a resurgence in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 hit thriller Jackie Brown , has been an influence on many young female Black actresses who laud her strength and empowerment.


Getty Images

Admittedly, Hamilton is on this list solely for her role as Sarah Connor in the Terminator films. But her portrayal as the futuristic cyborg slayer in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day is among the best female action roles of all time. We'll supply her some credit for Dante's Peak even before she became a real star with the underrated John Carpenter-written Black Moon Rising from 1986.


Getty Images

Inspired by the likes of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li, Jaa might not be a household name with casual American moviegoers, but he's blossomed into a martial arts/action star internationally. He made his mainstream screen debut in the Furious 7 (2015) and may not be flying — or rather, fighting — under the Hollywood radar for too long.


Getty Images

Arguably the current king of action cinema, Johnson might not be relinquishing that crown for a while. If not at the theater to watch a Johnson flick, you'll probably still see a preview of one of his upcoming films pop up before the feature. From his breakthrough as The Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns (2001) to 2019's Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and Jumanji: The Next Level, and even 2021's Red Notice, The Rock is not going anywhere.


Getty Images

There is not a role Jolie is incapable of playing, and that includes action pictures. Her first true spin within the genre came as the titular character in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. She followed with Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Wanted, and Salt to round out the last decadeLike Pam Grier, Jolie has left an indelible mark with her roles in these films from a female empowerment standpoint and is capable of tackling any project she takes on.


Getty Images

Once dubbed by VH1 as the "reigning queen of kick-butt," Jovovich might be at her best when doing just that on screen. Her breakthrough role came alongside Bruce Willis in the science-fiction action thriller The Fifth Element (1997). She shined in The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc and became a true star in the Resident Evil film franchise.


Getty Images

The king of martial arts action films, Lee opened the door for guys like Jackie Chan to walk through. The films of the genre that have followed still don't seem to compare to the brilliant, seemingly effortless work Lee put forth in 1970s martial arts classics such as Enter The Dragon and Fist of Fury. Despite a short film career, Lee's influence on martial arts films and the actors who followed can't be understated.


Getty Images

Li might not have the star power as Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan, but he could hold his own on the martial arts/action film scene. Though Li shined in War (2007) with Jason Statham, The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) with Chan, and alongside the all-star cast of The Expendables movies, we still think his best role might be that of Han Sing in 2000's Romeo Must Die.


Getty Images

Lundgren's breakthrough came as Ivan Drago, Rocky Balboa's international nemesis in 1985's Rocky IV. That was the start of a stellar action career for the chiseled Swede, who went on to star as He-Man in Masters of the Universe. Solid efforts in Red Scorpion and Universal Soldier followed. After many direct-to-video efforts, Lundgren became part of The Expendables family (like many others on this list).


Getty Images

One of the biggest stars of the 1960s and '70s, McQueen was a cool customer — the kind of actor moviegoers wanted to be like. His action roles were in films that were more along the lines of dramatic thrillers, though disasters, car chases, and shootouts were part of the plot lines. McQueen's work in The Magnificent Seven (1960), The Great Escape (1963), and The Towering Inferno (1974) still holds up well today.


Getty Images

Neeson has starred as a wide range of characters during an extremely successful career, and his action roles should be celebrated. Early on, his most notable parts were in The Dead Pool (1988) and Darkman (1990), a turn in the Star Wars prequels, and perhaps his most ruthless role in the Taken (2008) films. Neeson wasn't that bad as Hannibal Smith in The A-Team (2010) movie, either.


Getty Images

Maybe the title of this list should be "Chuck Norris and everyone else." While those jokes regarding how tough Norris is are funny, it's a tribute to a guy who literally made a living starring in action films — then, of course, those Total Gym commercials. In the mood for some good old-fashioned, feel-good senseless Hollywood violence? Check out The Octagon, Forced Vengeance, Missing in Action, Code of Silence, and The Delta Force. Then take cover.


Getty Images

For as much as critics pan the schlock Reeves has starred in, film audiences have never been able to stay away from him. His action film career really started as Johnny Utah in 1991's Point Break. He became a box-office superstar with Speed (1994) opposite Sandra Bullock, followed by The Matrix films, and more recently, the whole John Wick phenomenon.  


Getty Images

Russell's days as a leading action star might be in the past, but he's still among the most respected in the business. In his hard-guy, early work as the great Snake Plissken, action cult classics like Escape from New York and Escape from L.Astill hold up well todayOne of the most versatile actors of all time, Russell even succeeded win the action comedy Big Trouble in Little China and has popped up in the Fast and the Furious franchise.


29 of 40

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Getty Images

Arnold probably tops that list if we were ranking the greatest action stars of all time. From world-famous body builder to action hero staple to politician, Schwarzenegger has always been larger than life. Whether as part of the Conan and Terminator franchises or in Commando, Predator, or Total Recall — he even poked fun at himself in Last Action Hero — Arnold truly is the lord of the action movie world.


Getty Images

Following in the footsteps of Chuck Norris and other modern-day martial arts entertainers, Seagal was an action-film mainstay during the late 1980s and into the '90s. Complete with his jet-black ponytail and tan frame, Seagal cleaned house on screen and at the box office with hits like Above the Law (1988), Marked for Death, Out for Justice, Under Siege, and Executive Decision.


Getty Images

As big as a universal entertainer as Smith became in the early 1990s, it was only a matter of time before the Fresh Prince started making action movies. It started with the buddy comedy Bad Boys (1995) followed by blockbusters Independence Day and Men in Black. By this time, Smith was a worldwide superstar and continued to take on science-fiction action roles that fans still flock to see today.


Getty Images

Snipes' early film work was consumed by comedic roles, but that changed with the neo-gangster hit New Jack City (1991) when we got a glimpse of him flexing some muscle. He then became an action flick staple thanks to Passenger 57, Boiling Point, Demolition Man, and U.S. Marshals, and then he really hit it big with 1998's Blade and the series of films that followed.


Getty Images

Some might think it's a neck-and-neck race between Stallone and Schwarzenegger for the best action star in movie history. Fair enough. While the Rocky movies might not be considered action flicks, the first two in the franchise opened the door for Stallone to become a superstar and, ultimately, an action film staple. Nighthawks followed, and his continuing role as John Rambo took Sly's career to even greater heights. Popcorn action works like Cobra, Tango & Cash, Demolition Man, and Judge Dredd only added to the fun. 


Getty Images

At this moment, if we're going to talk about the current "big three" of action-adventure films, Statham would round out a group that includes Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. Statham's early roles in films like The Italian Job (2003) paved the way for him to make real money as an A-list action star in such franchises as The Expendables and the Fast and Furious — the latter in which we can see him team up with Johnson in the spinoff Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.


Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/United Artists

The late, great Swayze was stellar at mixing drama and action. Though he's probably best known for sappy films like Dirty Dancing and Ghost, where he displayed minimal physical angst, Swayze starred in arguably three of the most popular guilty pleasure action films of the 1980s and '90s: Red Dawn, Road House, and Point Break


36 of 40

Jean-Claude Van Damme

Getty Images

We first got a real eye on the "Muscles from Brussels" in the surprise 1988 hit Bloodsport (arguably, still his best film), and the rest is action hero history. From the late 1980s to the 1990s, Van Damme and Steve Seagal were staples of Hollywood action films. Cyborg, Kickboxer, Double Impact, Universal Soldier, and, of course, Timecop are just a few of his highlights.


Getty Images

Wahlberg follows along the lines of Will Smith. He's a big enough box office draw that his fans — and moviegoers in general — will come to see him in just about anything. Wahlberg also does enough of them that, while he's missed on more than a few action roles, he fared well in hits like Three Kings, Planet of the Apes, and Contraband. The point is that if Wahlberg keeps making action films, people will continue to watch.


Getty Images

Whether in westerns or war films, the "Duke" usually delivered. From his breakthrough role in the western Stagecoach (1939) to The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), The Longest Day (1962) to True Grit (1969), Wayne was one of Hollywood's biggest stars from the late 1930s and into the '70s. He's still the epitome of cool when it comes to leading men in Hollywood action films.


Getty Images

Often considered the first true sci-fi heroine, Weaver earned critical acclaim as Ripley in 1979's Alien. She became an even bigger action star with the following films in the series, including the sequel Aliens, which earned her an Oscar nomination. Though Weaver's career delved into more dramatic roles and several comedy spins, she's again shown her action and sci-fi chops somewhat in Galaxy Quest and Avatar.


Getty Images

He's part of the all-time "big three" with Arnold and Sly. But let's not just celebrate Willis' hard-guy, be-quirky-in-the-face-of-death attitude only for the Die Hard franchise. Armageddon was blockbuster cheese at its best, and Willis might have delivered some of his best one-liners in the underrated 1991 classic The Last Boy Scout. Plus, his vignette in Pulp Fiction provided the most action and entertainment within the film.

Killexams : The Best Action Cameras for 2023

The Best Action Camera Deals This Week*

*Deals are selected by our commerce team

Action cameras are small, lightweight, and sometimes even waterproof. They're useful because you can mount them to pretty much anything—from skateboards, surfboards, and bicycles, to helmets, body parts, and even your pets.

They have all but replaced traditional camcorders in the marketplace. Family historians and budding cinematographers now use a GoPro or similar camera for wide shots and vlogs, while smartphones and newer mirrorless cameras are the tools of choice for home movies.

Action cams also have a place in professional work. You should use a camera with a big sensor and interchangeable lenses when you can, but modern action cams capture video that's good enough to intercut. Think about shots that show the interior of an exploding car, for instance—a GoPro likely recorded the event.

Below, we highlight our favorite action cams across a wide range of budgets. And if you're not sure where to begin, check out our buying advice after the list.

Deeper Dive: Our Top Tested Picks

GoPro Hero11 Black

Best Action Cam Overall

Why We Picked It

The GoPro Hero11 Black is, bar none, the best action cam you can buy today. It's the latest version of the camera that defined the concept and the most technically advanced. It supports 5.3K60, 4K120, and 2.7K240 frame rates and matches them up with best-in-class stabilizaton and horizon-leveling. A nearly square image sensor boosts picture quality for creators pulling vertical 9:16 frames for TikTok, while its rugged and waterproof build means you don't need an add-on case.

Who It's For

The Hero11 Black is as versatile an action cam as you can find. Surfers, skateboarders, and other X Games participants can strap the camera to their person or board to get first-person views of stunts. Vloggers should appreciate its front-facing color display and Media Mod accessory system. And 10-bit video, new to this model, is a plus for use in cinema projects.


  • Great-looking 5.3K60 video
  • 4K120 and 2.7K240 slow-motion
  • 10-bit color sampling
  • Numerous time-lapse modes
  • Waterproof to 33 feet
  • Solid touch interface and voice command support
  • Subscription service with useful features


  • Not ideal for long-form recording or macro work
  • One battery won't get you through the day

Insta360 X3

Best 360 Camera for Creators

Why We Picked It

The Insta360 X3 is the camera to get for dual-lens, 360-degree video. It captures an all-around view of the world and gives you the software tools to do interesting and creative things with the video. The camera is waterproof and can survive rough handling too, so it's suitable for mounting and capturing action.

Who It's For

Creators who want to try their hand at 360-degree capture and the editing techniques that go with it should find a lot to like about the X3. Its HDR video profile handles mixed lighting well and you can use the camera for special effects shots like Matrix-style bullet time and time lapse with motion.


  • 5.7K30 HDR video
  • Slim, waterproof build
  • Big touch screen with straightforward interface
  • Robust desktop and mobile editing tools
  • Loads of capture modes


  • Video must be processed before editing
  • A bit of a learning curve to grasp 360-degree editing
  • Mobile editing app limits resolution

DJI Action 2

Most Innovative Design

Why We Picked It

The DJI Action 2 rethinks the action cam design. It's modular and has magnetic mounting points that let you place the camera in tight spots that can't quite hold a GoPro. You can even use the camera as a wearable body cam with the included pendant necklace mount. Video quality is strong too, with 4K120 recording available for action and slow motion.

Who It's For

If you're looking for a small, wearable camera for travel logs and adventures, the Action 2 is a good choice. The camera's video features are competitive with GoPros and the industrial design is a winner for style-conscious influencers.


  • Tiny, go-anywhere form factor
  • Magnetic mount and snap-on accessories
  • Effective digital stabilization
  • Up to 4K120 video
  • 12MP photos
  • Waterproof to 33 feet
  • Works as a webcam


  • Front screen option pushes price high
  • Overheating is a concern
  • No card slot or charging port on main camera module
  • Front screen and battery aren't waterproof

DJI Osmo Action 4

Best Low-Light Action Cam

Why We Picked It

The DJI Osmo Action 4 uses a big Type 1/1.3 format image sensor to produce crisp video in dim light, better than what you get from the GoPro Hero11. The Osmo's pixel count isn't as high as the Hero 11's, but it still supports up to 4K120 or 1080p240 video and takes 10MP snapshots. We also like its 75-minute battery life, dual touch screens, and 59-foot waterproof rating.

Who It's For

The Osmo Action 4 is worth a look if you like to explore the world after the sun goes down. The front touch screen is handy for self-recording, and the camera's tough build quality means you don't have to worry about it breaking during rough-and-tumble use.


  • Wide-angle lens with excellent digital stabilization
  • Front and rear touch screens
  • Up to 4K120 slow motion
  • 10-bit D-Log color
  • Waterproof to 59 feet
  • Works as a webcam


  • Smartphone-based product activation
  • Quick-release mount is easy to lose
  • Rear display isn't visible through polarized sunglasses

GoPro Hero9 Black

Best GoPro for Budget Shoppers

Why We Picked It

Now two generations old, the GoPro Hero9 Black remains in the lineup as the budget-friendly option. Its 5K30 and 4K60 video modes aren't as good for slow motion, but the camera captures sharp video with effective stabilization at those frame rates. It also works with the same Media Mod accessories as its pricier Hero10 and Hero11 siblings.

Who It's For

This is a good pick for action cam fans who don't want to break the bank. At around $300, it undercuts the price of other GoPro and DJI models and gives you access to some GoPro-exclusive features, such as automated video editing and direct upload from camera to cloud.


  • Up to 5K quality at 30fps
  • Front-facing color LCD
  • Exceptional video stabilization
  • Up to 240fps HD slow motion
  • Time-lapse, buffering, and HDR imaging
  • USB-C charging
  • Strong app support
  • Compact and waterproof


  • You'll likely want to carry extra batteries
  • Subscription service adds recurring costs

GoPro Max

Best Audio in a 360 Cam

Why We Picked It

GoPro's dual-lens action camera uses two lenses to record the entire world around it, but can also function as a single-lens action cam. The Max's strengths as a 360-degree camera are its sharp video quality and software reframing tools. That's not to mention the six internal microphones that grab the best in-camera audio of any action cam we've tested. As you might expect from a GoPro, the Max is also tough and waterproof (though only to 16 feet).

Who It's For

The GoPro Max is a top pick for creators who want a dual-lens 360 camera and care a lot about audio quality. Travel vloggers and others who present to the camera won't have to fiddle with an external mic with this one, and the Max is waterproof to boot. GoPro offers reframing tools for creative edits too, though they're not quite as polished as what you get with the Insta360 X3.


  • 360-degree capture
  • Also works as a single-lens camera
  • Intuitive software tools
  • Strong stabilization
  • Good in-camera audio
  • Waterproof without a case
  • Integrated mounting clips


  • Effective resolution is really 1080p
  • Single-lens capture tops out at 60fps
  • Requires more editing time to get the best results from spherical footage

Insta360 Go 3

Best Wearable Action Cam

Why We Picked It

Cameras don't get much smaller than the Insta360 Go 3. The capsule-sized model records 2.7K30 video, is waterproof, and works well for point-of-view captures, an aspect that video creators are sure to like. The included Action Pod housing turns the Go into a standard action cam with a flip-forward touch screen, so it's not a one-trick pony.

Who It's For

The Go 3 should appeal to creators who want a wearable camera or adventurers who want something they can mount in interesting places to capture unique perspectives. Make sure you are comfortable with video editing tools, however, since the Go 3 requires you to run footage through its app to create time lapses or apply digital stabilization.


  • Stabilized 2.7K30 video
  • Versatile, ultra-compact design
  • Waterproof to 16 feet
  • Action Pod attachment has flip-forward touch LCD


  • Action Pod housing isn't submersible
  • Non-removable battery and no storage expansion slot
  • Some video modes require post-processing
  • Wearable footage looks unsteady

Insta360 One RS

Best for Mixing 360 and 4K Footage

Why We Picked It

The Insta360 One RS is an action cam that supports swappable lenses, a unique capability for sure. When we tested a basic kit with a 4K main lens for 16:9 footage and a dual-lens 360 module for all-around recording, we appreciated the versatility and creative features. For higher-quality recording, Insta360 even offers Leica-branded modules for both single-lens and dual-lens recording, thus making the camera upgradeable.

Who It's For

If you can't quite decide between a standard single-lens cam and a dual-lens 360 model, the Insta360 One RS might be the camera for you. It records pleasing 4K60 video with stabilization and supports extra-wide 2.35:1 recording. The dual-lens module does 5.7K30 and works with Insta360's excellent editing tools.


  • Compact design
  • Swappable lens modules
  • Waterproof to 16 feet
  • Stabilized 4K60 and 5.7K 360 video
  • HDR available at 4K30
  • 2:35 wide-screen mode
  • Mobile and desktop app support


  • In-camera mics disappoint outdoors
  • Modular design can get in the way
  • Small touch LCD
  • Battery only good for 75 minutes of 4K
  • Heat can limit long-form recordings

Buying Guide: The Best Action Cameras for 2023

Do Action Cameras Need 4K?

The first thing to consider is a camera's video resolution. 4K is a minimum requirement these days, and the best models offer more than double that resolution. The GoPro Hero11 Black, for instance, supports 5.3K.

Next, take a look at the available frame rates, expressed as frames per second (fps). Some action cameras offer up to 240fps recording, whereas ultra-budget options may only offer 30fps. The latter is perfectly fine for standard playback, but the frame rate matters more when you want to slow footage down in editing to create dramatic scenes. You can slow 240fps recordings down and play them back smoothly at one-quarter speed, for instance. If you want a cinematic look, pick a camera that has a 24fps capture option; that's the same speed that most Hollywood productions use.

The best action cams put fast frame rates and high pixel counts together—the GoPro Hero11 Black pushes 240fps at 2.7K, for example, better than the 1080p240 you get from the DJI Osmo Action 4.

If you're more serious about video, look for a model that offers a flat video profile that grades easily. We've not yet seen Raw video support in an action cam, but you can get that feature from larger models, including the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 6K. Some sort of stabilization is important as well, as it can help you get smooth footage without a tripod or gimbal.

The Best Action Cameras With Wide Lenses and 360-Degree Video

Most action cams have a lens with a wide, wide view of the world. You are thus likely to encounter some fish-eye distortion, especially if you mount it really close to what it's filming, but newer models remove that effect automatically. A few cameras also let you select a narrower angle for recording to avoid distortion at the outset.

Some entries have two lenses for spherical video capture, though not as many as during the height of the 360-degree video fad. The cameras that survived serve a dual purpose, leveraging software so you can use video for both VR headsets and flat screens. Software tools allow you to manipulate video in interesting ways, as you can see in the GoPro Max clip above.

There are also outliers in the design department. The DJI Pocket 2 has a gimbal-stabilized camera—it's not rugged, but vloggers should take a look.

How to Mount Your Action Cam

You should also consider your specific needs. Not all cameras are suitable for every sport and certain designs lend themselves better to particular activities. On top of that, different shapes allow for different mounting accessories and possibilities. If you want to catch a unique perspective, like an under-skateboard shot, pay close attention to a camera's size. If you're already invested in a system, like GoPro, which uses a proprietary mount, then sticking with what you've got can help you save money on accessories.

Waterproofing is an important aspect to consider if you plan to record underwater or even around water. Some waterproof cameras can go deeper than others or even have built-in waterproofing so you don't need to worry about an extra housing.

Longtime editors might be happy working with desktop editing software, but adventurers might want to cut footage on a smartphone or tablet. Look for a model with built-in Wi-Fi at a minimum if mobile editing is important.

You get better software support from name-brand options. GoPro and DJI include full-featured smartphone apps for on-the-go editing. Both automatically create an edit from your shots, a plus when you just want to get a quick social post out.

If you go with a brand that doesn't supply an editing app, you have to bring your own. It's easy enough to use iMovie or Adobe Premiere Rush to cut clips together on your phone, however. If you need software for your desktop or laptop, check out our top video editing recommendations.

Which Action Camera Should You Get?

We've filmed hours of footage with many of the major contenders to determine where each device stands in the field. Ultimately, your choice should come down to performance and ease of use.

Updated Aug 2, 2023 9:53 AM

Most people today gravitate to semi-automatic guns when picking out a new rifle, never thinking about a bolt-action rifle. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that. To be fair, there are a ton of great semi-autos on the market, but there’s nothing quite like the feeling of working the buttery-smooth bolt in a high quality bolt-action rifle. Whether it came out of the box that way or it’s been broken in from being handed down through the generations, there’s just something about it that you can’t get from a semi-auto rifle.

Even though they may not be as popular today as they were in the past, there are still a plethora of great, brand new bolt-action rifles being made each and every day throughout the world. Thanks to that wide selection of offerings, though, it can be hard to narrow things down. To help, we’ve picked out the best bolt-action rifles below.

How I Picked The Best Bolt-Action Rifles

From budget rimfires to precision long-range rigs that cost more than my first car, I’ve been fortunate enough to shoot a lot of different bolt-action rifles over the years. I’ve learned that sometimes less is more and have been pleasantly surprised, while I’ve also certainly experienced guns where “you get what you pay for” applies—at both ends of the spectrum. As a result, I own bolt-action rifles at a variety of different price points in calibers and configurations that fit a variety of different purposes.

When it comes down to picking the right one for me, I evaluate bolt-action rifles using the following criteria:

Build Quality: What materials went into making the rifle and how does that translate into the finished gun? Does it handle like you’d expect for what it is, or does the action feel like it is full of sand? Is it built like a tank or does it need to be babied? Build quality will make or break a rifle.

Intended Use: If it’s a precision long-range rifle, what kind of adjustments does the stock have and how is it bedded? If it’s a hunting rifle, is it light enough for long treks in the woods? How you’ll use the rifle will help determine what aspects should be focused on when making a final selection.

Cost: Does this rifle provide a good value for the money? Am I getting what you would expect, or more, at a given price point?

The Best Bolt-Action Rifles: Reviews & Recommendations

Best Overall: Bergara B-14 HMR


  • Guaranteed 1.0 MOA groups or less at 100 yards with quality factory match grade ammo


  • fully free-floated barrel and one-piece action
  • adjustable buttstock
  • left-handed versions available


  • only 4 of 7 calibers available in left-handed version

Built for hunters and long-range competitive shooters, the Bergara B-14 HMR is a top-notch rifle. The world-renowned fully free-floated Bergara barrel on this hunting and match rifle (hence the HMR) is complemented by the super-smooth B-14 action, which is a two-lug system with a sliding plate extractor and a coned bolt nose and breech to ensure smooth feeding and extraction of the cartridge. Molded into the stock for repeatable bedding and accuracy is an integrated mini-chassis. It’s also outfitted with a Bergara curved trigger designed to certain a crisp, clean pull every time you fire the rifle. The trigger comes set at about three pounds, the receiver has been factory drilled and tapped to fit Remington 700 style rings and bases, and the muzzle is threaded 5/8-24 for a suppressor or muzzle device.

Best Premium: Weatherby Mark V


  • Lowest in class bolt rotation of just 54°


  • Standard and magnum configurations available
  • Bolt has a full shroud to protect user in case of an ammo failure
  • 23 calibers and 22 model variations to choose from


  • Can be hard to find one in stock

Roy Weatherby’s signature cartridges are powerful, so his 9-lug, push-feed action was created to withstand the extra pressure generated by them. The Mark V also offers the lowest bolt rotation on the market, ensuring scope clearance and quick cycling. The buttery-smooth bolt is forged from one piece and features relief ports and a full shroud to protect the user in the case of an ammunition failure. With 23 calibers and 22 different model variations to choose from, there’s bound to be a Weatherby Mark V for any purpose, from chasing Alaskan sheep with an ultralight Backcountry Ti to sitting for Kansas whitetails with an Accumark Pro, you’ll find what you need.

Best Hunting: Winchester Model 70


  • The “pre-64” controlled round feed action is standard production


  • Available in 21 different calibers and 13 variations
  • Popular Featherwight and Super Grade variations still available
  • Available in traditional “blue and wood” as well as modern “composite and stainless” variations


  • No longer a US-made product: made in Portugal by Browning for Winchester

Introduced in 1936, Winchester’s Model 70 has developed a cult following in the hunting and collecting community. The current production guns feature the “pre-64” controlled round feed action design, meaning that there’s no reason to avoid the model because of changes that were made a half-century ago. Whether you want a luxury model Super Grade with ebony accents and Grade V/VI walnut or a modern hunting rifle featuring Cerakote finish and a synthetic stock, there’s a Model 70 to fit your needs somewhere in the 21 different calibers and 13 different model variations. Plus, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get one of the best factory-produced bolt-action rifles available today.

Best Budget: CVA Cascade


  • Available in standard barrel lengths and more compact short barrel lengths


  • Sub-$600 price is hard to beat for what you get
  • Compatible with all Savage 110 AccuTrigger two piece scope mounts
  • Available in 10 different calibers


  • Not as many caliber and model variations as other options on the market

The Cascade is CVA’s first ever bolt-action centerfire rifle. With a sub-$600 price point, it’s hard to beat the quality you get from the CVA Cascade, which is often considered to be a “Bergara on a budget.” The series features a threaded muzzle, making it ready for whatever muzzle device you want to use. The bolt design incorporates a 70° throw for smooth and fast operation, plus generous scope clearance. The synthetic stock is fiberglass reinforced and has a SoftTouch finish, while the buttstock has adjustable length of pull by way of a removable spacer – making it an ideal gun for still-growing youths, small-statured adults, or even the full-sized hunter who wants to shorten the stock to accommodate heavy winter clothing.

Best Rimfire: Ruger American Rimfire


  • Available in 17 HMR, 22 LR, and 22 WMR


  • Compatible with other larger-capacity Ruger magazines in the appropriate calibers
  • Many configurations come with a threaded muzzle
  • Includes two interchangeable standard length of pull stock modules that provide comb height options for scope or iron sight use


  • Some distributor exclusive configurations are hard to find

The Ruger American Rimfire bolt-action rifles offer the same reliability, versatility, performance, and affordability that shooters have come to know from the semi-auto 10/22 model. Available in 3 different calibers and multiple barrel lengths, finishes, and stock colors, you don’t have to settle for anything less than the exact bolt-action rimfire rifle you want. With the two length of pull and comb height stock modules, you can easily configure the rifle for use with iron sights or a scope. A 3/8″ rimfire scope base is machined into the receiver, which is also drilled and tapped for Weaver #12 bases. The Ruger American Rimfire also makes use of a patented Power Bedding integral bedding block system that positively locates the receiver and free-floats the barrel for outstanding accuracy.

What to Consider When Choosing a Bolt-Action Rifle

Obviously, the final decision is up to you, but if you decide that your next big gun-related purchase is going to be a bolt-action, then here are some of the things you should think about before parting with your hard-earned money:

Intended Use

Determining how you’ll be using the rifle can help narrow down what you should buy. A rifle used just for plinking or target practice will often be much different than one used for a long hunting trip or competition shooting.


How you’ll use the rifle can help narrow down what features you want the gun to have. For example, do you need a threaded muzzle for a suppressor or a brake? Is a durable, all-weather finish most important given what you’ll be doing? Or perhaps you want something with an adjustable trigger for precision shots. All of these are available, but not all are available for a given make or model.


Money is always on everyone’s mind. Thankfully, there are some great bolt-action rifles out there at every price point. Just because one rifle is more expensive than another doesn’t make it better. Figure out your budget and then you can find rifles with the features you want for your intended purpose that you can afford.


Q: What is the best bolt-action rifle?

Two of the most popular answers for what is the best bolt-action rifle would be the Winchester Model 70 and the Weatherby Mark V. Winchester Model 70s made before 1964 and the current production guns are the best out there for that make and model. They’re not called “The Rifleman’s Rifle” for no reason. Weatherby Mark V rifles are incredibly well built, featuring the lowest bolt rotations available and the strongest actions on the market. They’re built like tanks.

Q: Are bolt-action rifles more accurate?

The short answer is yes, bolt-action rifles are generally more accurate than other rifles. In the simplest of explanations, this is because they’ve got fewer moving pieces each time the rifle fires compared to their semi-automatic counterparts. Less movement often equates to better accuracy shot for shot. However, semi-auto rifles have come a long way, and they can be incredibly accurate, too.

Q: What is the best .22 Magnum bolt-action rifle?

One of the best .22 Magnum bolt-action rifles you can buy is the Ruger American Rimfire, which was included on this list. Essentially, you’re getting the same reliability, versatility, performance, and affordability that shooters have come to know from the semi-auto 10/22 model just in a bolt-action model instead.

Best Bolt-Action Rifles: Final Thoughts

In my opinion, there will always be a place in the world for bolt-action rifles. They’ve just got a certain aura around them that tends to draw you in. Today’s world is full of cookie-cutter semi-autos that all look exactly the same sitting in a rack. Bolt-actions, however, have unique personalities that instantly set them apart from one another even when they’re grouped together along the wall.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a semi-auto rifle. I own plenty. I just think that shooters today shouldn’t immediately discount the bolt-action as an antiquated action of yesteryear. The new models that are released each year have proven that cutting-edge materials and advancements make their way into these guns, too.

It’s all about picking the right tool for the job, and in some instances, the best tool is a bolt-action rifle.

Killexams : What Are the Criticisms of the Human Development Index (HDI)?

The Human Development Index (HDI) assigns numerical values to different countries as a measure of human prosperity. These values are derived by measuring levels of education, standard of living, and life expectancy. Countries with higher scores on the index are said to be better developed than those with lower scores.

The system is designed to help determine strategies for improving living conditions for people around the world. Human Development Index (HDI) values are often influential in conjunction with gross domestic product (GDP) and can affect a nation's fiscal and public policy. However, some critics argue that these measures are flawed and do not create an accurate picture of prosperity.

Key Takeaways

  • The Human Development Index (HDI) is a statistic the United Nations developed and compiled to measure various countries' levels of social and economic development. 
  • HDI values are influential and can affect the fiscal and public policy of a nation.
  • Critics argue that the HDI's measurements are flawed and do not create an accurate picture of prosperity.

How the Human Development Index (HDI) Is Valued

The HDI was developed by Pakistani economist Mahbub ul Haq and Indian Nobel laureate Amartya Sen and eventually launched in 1990.

The goal was to measure development beyond just focusing on how much money people have. The HDI is calculated as the geometric mean of the following:

  • The health factor is assessed by life expectancy at birth.
  • The standard of living factor is assessed by gross national income (GNI) per capita.
  • The education factor is assessed by the mean years of schooling for adults and the expected years of schooling for children of school entering age.

Criticism of the Human Development Index (HDI)

Critics argue that the HDI assigns weights to certain factors that are equal tradeoffs when these measurements may not always be equally valuable. For example, countries could achieve the same HDI through different combinations of life expectancy and GNI per capita. This would imply that a person's life expectancy has an economic value.

The HDI also correlates factors that are more common in developed economies. For example, a higher level of education would tend to lead to higher GNI per capita. Critics argue the benefit or lack thereof of including two highly correlated values when perhaps one would be a better indicator of a country's well-being.

The HDI also fails to take into account factors such as inequality, poverty, and gender disparity. A country with a high value for GNI per capita would indicate a developed country, but what if that GNI is reached by marginalizing certain genders or ethnic classes? And what if that GNI is achieved by a small percentage of the population that is wealthy and, therefore, ignores the poor?

Furthermore, the values of the factors that make up the HDI are bound between 0 and 1. This means that certain countries that already have high GNIs, for example, have little room to Strengthen in terms of GNI score even if their GNI continues to grow and improve. This same parameter affects the logic of the life expectancy score.

Why Is the Human Development Index (HDI) Controversial?

The HDI is controversial because it is highly influential yet considered to be deeply flawed. The United Nations itself even admits that the HDI is not “a comprehensive measure of human development” and that the index is slow to reflect recent policy changes and improvements to the lives of a nation’s citizens.

What Are the Biggest Criticisms of the HDI?

The HDI was designed to measure development not just in terms of how much money people have but also in terms of education and length of life. The problem is not everyone is happy about the choice of indicators nor the way they are aggregated.

What Are the 4 Indicators of the Human Development Index (HDI)?

The HDI focuses on the following four factors: mean years of schooling, expected years of schooling, life expectancy at birth, and gross national income (GNI) per capita. 

The Bottom Line

The HDI is designed to consider other factors besides wealth, allowing a multifaceted examination of global prosperity and emerging market nations. However, the weaknesses of this measurement lead some critics to challenge its practicality for use in establishing foreign policy. This measurement does not sufficiently capture other factors that influence prosperity either.

Killexams : Rescues in Action: Kali

SEMINOLE, Fla. — Rescues in Action welcomes Kali! She is a gentle and sweet-natured dog and about two years old and 45 pounds.

Here's what Fluff Animal Rescue had to say about her:

"Kali recently became a proud mother, bringing 12 adorable puppies into the world. All of her puppies have either been adopted or placed in foster care, so now it’s time for Kali to find a loving forever home where she can receive the attention and care she deserves. She has a calm and composed demeanor, making her a wonderful companion for anyone seeking a peaceful presence. Kali loves going for walks and does really well on a leash. While she's nearly housebroken, a little patience and training will help her master this skill. She gets along with other dogs with a proper introduction, though a calmer male would probably make the best fit for her. One of Kali's cherished possessions is her red pig stuffed toy, so she should never be without it! If you're looking for a furry friend who you want to snuggle up with, Kali would be an excellent addition to your family. Kali is looking for a foster or a furever home."

Killexams : Specialist doctors threaten industrial action over pay

A THIRD group of hospital doctors in England threatened industrial action today in the latest twist to the NHS pay dispute.

The British Medical Association (BMA) said that members working as specialist doctors will consider planning for an indicative ballot for industrial action unless the government makes an offer to “urgently improve” their pay and working conditions.

Dr Ujjwala Mohite, who chairs the specialist, associate specialist and specialty (SAS) UK committee, said in a letter to Health Secretary Steve Barclay that while preliminary talks have been encouraging, the government is still to make an offer reversing years of pay erosion for SAS doctors.

The committee that said if an offer is not made before September 20, they will have no choice but to go ahead with an indicative ballot.

SAS doctors are senior and highly experienced healthcare professionals who have decided not to go down the traditional consultant or GP pathways, with most working in hospitals alongside junior doctors and consultants or in the community.

The BMA said that the government had continually failed to recognise and reward SAS doctors, who have seen their real-terms pay fall by more than a quarter over the last 15 years, leading many to leave the NHS.

Dr Mohite said: “Not many people will have heard of SAS doctors, but they play an incredibly important role in the NHS, making up the trinity of hospital doctors alongside consultants and junior doctors.

“Like our colleagues, we have seen our value steadily erode over the past 15 years, leaving many wondering whether they should stay working in the health service.

“With every doctor that reduces their hours or leaves altogether, the less safe it becomes for those who are left, risking exhaustion, burnout and yet more doctors deciding to move out, out of the NHS.

“Our patients deserve the highest quality of care, but we are seriously struggling to deliver that when so many SAS doctors feel undervalued.

“The government has the power to prevent another group of doctors from taking industrial action and we implore the secretary of state to make sure that we don’t have to.”

Junior doctors in England ended a four-day strike on Tuesday, while consultants are to withdraw their labour for 48 hours next week.

The Department of Health and Social Care was contacted for comment.
