DB Power 1080p Sports Camera Review

The DB Power 1080p Sports Camera is aimed squarely at those who are interested in a GoPro but don’t want to spend a lot of money on the camera and accessories.  Not a problem with the DB Power camera, it comes with a bewildering array of accessories, as well as a case you get accessories for using this on a bike, helmet, dashboard, belt…the list goes on.

The actual camera itself is a dinky little thing and has the advantage of a built in screen on the back allowing you to frame your photos/video. It’s easy enough to operate and allows you to take both video and photos.

DB Power Camera LayoutThe included case feels very rugged and, according to the manufacturer, makes the camera waterproof up to 30 meters. There are buttons on the case, but at times they felt sticky and didn’t always pop back out fully, but that didn’t seem to cause a problem with the camera and it’s great that you don’t need to remove the camera to access the buttons.

It’s great you get some many accessories, but, as you might expect for such a low cost, they don’t feel great quality, for example the handlebar mount kept coming loose and had to be readjusted several times.

However the camera itself is a great little camera for the price. Picture quality is very good when movement is relatively stable (eg walking around), but does suffer from a lack of stabilization when used in ‘bouncy’ situations, such as off road biking.  Photos are OK but are unlikely to replace your camera/mobile.

It’s not a perfect camera, but it’s easy to overlook the shortcomings due to such a low price.  It’s a good way to see if you’d find a GoPro style camera of use before making an investment in a higher cost action camera.
