When it comes to cheap gadgets, the mantra is usually "you get what you pay for". There's no better example than the Navig8r Sports Camera.
Design and features
The Navig8r cameras come in a variety of flavours from 720p recording to a Full HD "pro" kit. This review is for the 1080p version that sits in the middle of the range.
The Navig8r looks cheaper than its fellow inexpensive counterparts, such as theand . There's a lot of plastic, cheap flaps and a lightweight body build. To further this impression, our review unit actually shipped without one of the key components to the accessory kit — the main helmet mount itself.
Some awkward makeshift mounts ensued, including our particular favourite — gaffer-tape mount. Read: stick the camera to whatever surface we can with lots and lots of tape.
Fortunately, there is a standard tripod thread on both the camera and the waterproof case itself. The camera should ship with the following items in the box:
Helmet mount and strap
Waterproof housing, adhesive mount and safety tether
