SPORTS HD DV 1080p Action Cam Review, Video And Image Samples! Is It Worth Buying?

Last month, I saw an interesting deal with Goods.PH (Check : The Benefits of Shopping Online and Why You Should Start It With Goods.PH). I finally gave it a shot to shop my very first gadget online. Honestly, I have never been so confident of shopping gears online. I can buy clothes or other items but when it comes to gadgets, i always have doubts. The method of shipping is what worries me the most. I’m afraid that something might get damage or lost during the process.

Goods.PH, however, proved me wrong. I was expecting the item to arrive after 2 to three weeks of placing my order but I got it in just three days! So what kind of item I am referring with? It’s an Action cam. The item was on sale, dropping the real price from Php2000+ to only Php959. Since I am recently engaging myself into travels, I decided to grab this interesting offer.

Sports HD DV 1080p Action Cam is more like an imitation, a brandless item that is seemingly a clone version of SJCAM. Appearance wise, it looks almost the same (even the set of colors available) except that it has no SJCAM logo on it.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The box comes up with the Action cam along with many accessories including the Waterproof case, the bicycle stand, helmet base, support switches and straps (even extra nuts too) and of course a user-friendly manual. Unlike other packages I’ve seen online, this one doesn’t come up with Floaters and monopod so you have to buy them separately.

ASSEMBLING
For a first time user like me, assembling the action cam was quite a trick. I find it hard to remove the action cam out of the waterproof case and I had to search videos about it too haha. Generally, it just need a little getting used to but assembling can be easily performed.

INTERFACE / CONFIGURATION
Sports HD DV Cam has a very simple and manageable interface. The Camera can be turned on by holding the Power Switch button on the front (just beside the lens) for 3 seconds. It is the same button you can use to switch from one mode to another. There are FOUR modes in this action cam. First is the VIDEO mode where you can take videos, the CAMERA Mode for still shots, PLAYBACK Mode to review photos and videos you took and SETTINGS mode to configure the camera based on your preferences. To select item, simply click the OK button

VERDICT:
SPORTS HD DV 1080p Action Cam failed to reach my expectations but like they always said when it comes to buying items, you only get what you really paid for. The low cost action cam might be very inviting but the quality of the pictures and the videos is unsurprisingly poor.  There are times that I get decent videos but most of the videos are generally poor in qualities. The 1080p is just a tricky features to make this product look inviting but in reality, this kind of quality has never been achieved.

It is a waterproof camera indeed but not meant for underwater. There is underwater mode here so when the camera is being used underwater, it automatically zooms in.  There is also no Stabilized mode so the video tends to be shaky and at some point, it jumps or skips in few seconds while recording.

So is this Action cam worth buying? Well, it depends, if you are looking for a simple and portable action cam to record your activities without compromising your budget, then this one is ideal enough but if you are looking for that quality images and videos to share, don’t expect much from this action cam. I personally think that it is not really worth buying and I wish I could have searched for something else.
