Watch out GoPro! There’s a new camera on the block, and this one has internet access. The new LG Action CAM, a 12.3-megapixel camera with built-in 4G LTE, allows you to live stream directly to YouTube—no phone or hot spot necessary. The camera is resistant to dust, sand and water, and can affix to vehicles or helmets, making it a useful livestream option for motocross.
