The Navig8r WIFI 1080p Sports Camera: A Must for Holiday Makers
When traveling the world, choosing the right type of camera can be downright complicated. There are so many options available out there that it’s easy to make the wrong purchase and end up with a device that doesn’t offer the right type of photographic capabilities.
In this review, we’ll look at why a 1080p sports camera with WIFI from Navig8r is a smart purchase. Whether you’re traveling locally or flying overseas, this device will make your trip easier in the following ways.
Lightweight and Portable
As you’ll be moving around a lot while on holiday, you’ll need a camera which is light and compact. This Navig8r model weighs a mere 72 grams and boasts an extremely small design. With dimensions of 74 x 52 x 33 mm, this is a camera you can easily slip into your purse or backpack and enjoy your holiday without feeling impaired.
You’ll also need a device that can take videos as well as images. Whether filming a scenic panorama or recording your friends mucking about at the beach, a Navig8r camera gives you the perfect footage through the following specs:
- Up to 1920 x 1080 resolution (Video recording)
- Up to 60 frames per second
- 100° viewing angle
- Built-in microphone
It even comes with a tripod mounting screw so you can take perfectly stable videos of the amazing locations you visit on holiday.
While you’re on the move, you won’t have time to hook your camera up to your laptop and upload your pictures and videos via cable. For the holiday maker who wants instant access, the Navig8r WIFI 1080p sports camera offers full wireless connectivity to any smartphone device. Simply install the associated app on your iPhone or Android, and you can instantly upload your photos and videos via social media, email or any other electronic means no matter where you are!
If you’re stuck thinking about megapixels, you’re living in the past! A more important aspect is the sensor size as this has more effect on the clarity and resolution of the images you take. This Navig8r Full HD camera comes with an amply-sized CMOS sensor which can take much better photos than your average smartphone. As cameras with larger sensors offer higher photographic resolutions, the full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution of the Navig8r 1080p WIFI camera shows it indeed comes with an ample sensor size suitable for holiday makers of all types.
Lastly, you’ll need to think about how you operate your camera. If you’re looking for simple controls that let you point and shoot, again Navig8r’s WIFI 1080p FHD model is a good choice. The camera itself features relatively few buttons for ease-of-use while travelling. Most of the more complex functions are accessed through the included remote control and/or your smartphone app.
As you can see, Navig8r has provided a user-friendly, top-of-the-range camera perfect for any upcoming holiday. Whether you’re traveling for a weekend or a month, this piece of photographic equipment will serve you well.

Why do I need HDMI?
HDMI is the most widely used format for home audio and visual equipment today. It is the simplest way to connect various home AV equipment using only one cable to deliver top quality digital sound and image. Look for Laser products with HDMI connectivity for the perfect and simple connection.
What is the difference between HDMI, component and composite?
HDMI, Component and Composite are all ways which Audio Visual playback equipment such as DVD and Blu Ray players, connect to Televisions and other peripheral display devices. As technology advances, new connection ports that deliver better performance are added to these devices while older connections are phased out. None are more obvious than analogue connections being replaced by superior digital connections. For example, Composite and Component are analogue connections and will require more than one connection cable to deliver video and audio. HDMI is a digital connection, supporting a higher quality video and audio signal all connecting via just the one cable. For reference, HDMI will deliver the best quality image, while Component will deliver an excellent image, and Composite will deliver a good image.
What is the difference between batteries?
The latest development with Lithium-Ion (LI) battery technology has been the introduction of the Lithium Polymer based battery. Not only does the Lithium Polymer battery last longer, the battery is no longer limited to traditional battery cylindrical shapes. The battery can now be moulded into a customised shape to fit inside any product making it the choice for manufacturers developing the latest slimline and stylish devices. For best results and like with all other batteries, LI batteries should always have top up charges if put in storage for extended periods of time.
What is the difference between 25fps, 30fps, 60fps?
"fps" standards for Frames Per Second (or just Frame Rate). Simply put, a higher Frame Rate means a smoother and more detailed viewing experience. For example the old Merry Melody hand drawn cartoons could be anywhere between 8 and 12 frames per second and by today’s standards look very jolting and un-natural. With more frames per second, movements can be made to look a lot smoother and life like. 30fps looks good. 60fps looks even better.
How much difference is there between 720p and 1080p?
These are used to describe picture resolution show the number of vertical lines. In the case of 720p, 720 lines are displayed. In the case of 1080p, 1080 lines are displayed on the screen which is probably the most common resolution on TVs today. 1080p is higher in resolution and will display a noticeably better picture.
Should I buy a SD card with the biggest memory so I can record more?
For most cameras, you want the biggest capacity SD card so you can record more. However it is not a critical requirement for crash cameras as they cycle record and continually recycle space on an existing card. The need to purchase a larger card would come down more to the cost differential between sizes and any possible second use you may have for the card when not in use for example as a camera card or as memory for another portable device.
What are the waterproof ratings?
IP ratings show that a product has been tested to resist penetration by dust and water. As some will be better than others at this, the IP rating scheme provides a common definition and explanation about a products performance to standardised tests. IP is followed by 2 digits to define the level of protection against dust and water respectively. IP00 means no protection at all. At the other extreme, IP68 means total protection where the first digit 6 means it is totally dust proof and the second digit 8 means protection against high water pressure and full submersion. Please see chart for interpretation of the digits:
