We have a few GoPro cameras in our bag, but at this point they’re both a bit dated, so when the folks at Review XP reached out to ask if we wanted to try the 4k C300 Action Camera, our answer was an enthusiastic yes.
The Review XP Action Cameras are extremely affordable, with the C200 model starting at $59 and the C300 listing for $69 on Amazon. There’s also the C600 model ($89.95) that adds an anti-shake feature as well as a diving and car mode for use as a dashboard cam. At these prices they seem too good to be true. Especially when you consider the entire package included for that price:
- Padded and shockproof carrying case
- Waterproof case
- Belt Clip
- Camera frame
- Quick ties
- Tether cable
- 4k Review XP C300 Camera
- Switch Support brackets x3
- Fixed base mounts
- Handlebar mount
- Helmet mounts x2 and double sided 3m sticky foam
- Lens cloth
- Velcro straps x2
- 2x 1050 mAh rechargeable Batteries
- Protective back cover
- a User manual
- Wrist mountable remote control for camera
- Charger adopter
- USB Charging Cable
- GoPro chesty compatible mount
Based on all the stuff you get in the package, you could buy the camera for the accessories alone to go with a GoPro camera. It is missing a few of our favorite accessories like the chest mounted belt, but if you don’t already have one, Review XP offers an additional accessory kit that includes it, a padded case, a multitude of mounts, car helmet suction cup mount, extending selfie stick, head strap mounts, floating handle bobbers, wrist mounts for snorkeling and more for only $21.95.
Yes, the Review XP is a GoPro clone, but that’s also its biggest selling point. I’m still wrapping my head around the feature set, but more importantly, the controls are intuitive. Admittedly I’m comparing it to a Hero 3+ so it isn’t a fair comparison. A better comparison with be with the GoPro Hero, which is positioned as the base model in the GoPro line at $199.00.
I’m still diving into the controls and testing our setups as well as and sourcing additional cards and a gimbal, but we’ve been wanting to expand our video channel for sometime so stay tuned for updates as we update this working review and complete our boxing and first ride review video.
