Inspired Kathy’s Review:
Orbo Extreme NR22 Sports Action Camera
I’ve debated on what rating to give this camera/video recorder. This is a budget priced item. Know right off that if you buy this thinking your are getting a GoPro for a great deal you are going to be disappointed. This is not in the same quality class as a GoPro. I’m evaluating this based on its merits and price point not by comparing it to a GoPro. (I personally don’t own a GoPro but have traveled with people who do own them and seen the videos they have recorded.)
First off before you even open the box be aware that the Orbo Extreme NR22 does not come with an SD card so you can’t actually use it until you install one. I wish I had realized this ahead of time because we were excited to try this out but ended up scrambling trying to find a micro SD card so we actually use it. Fortunately I found an old cell phone that had one that was no longer being used so was spared a trip to the store.
This has 3 different modes easily switched between by a button on the side of the camera. You can take pictures, record video or put it in action mode for extreme sports videos. The touch screen on the camera is not very responsive and does not have great resolution. Thankfully once you upload pictures and video and view them on the computer they look better than they do on the camera. Also this preforms much better in full daylight than it does at dusk.
This camera is so light and compact. I’m really impressed by both its size and weight (or lack thereof).
I have a 12 year old son who has been using this more than anyone. He has hooked it up to his bike, videoed his friends and even attached it to the car and made me drive him around. It’s perfect for him.
It comes with a waterproof case and several different mounting devices.
The instructions are terrible but thankfully my son doesn’t seem to need them. He can just innately figure out how to work anything electronic. I on the other hand couldn’t even figure out how to open the waterproof case and required help.
If you are looking for a budget priced camera/video recorder then this is an affordable option worth looking into. If you are after high quality top of the line video capabilities then look elsewhere or you will find yourself disappointed.
For our needs, being that of a stay at home gadget illiterate mother with a twelve year old son, this is a great fit and we love it and use it often.
