Most everyone has a really good camera attached to their smartphone. However, you can’t take a smartphone underwater while snorkling or on a high speed bike adventure through rough terrain. If you want to capture amazing outdoor photos and videos, then you’ll need a small and handy camera like the Davola Action Camera. It’s like a GoPro action cam, but at a fraction of the cost.
Now going for $30 on Amazon, the Davola Action Camera is lightweight, compact, and can capture footage at full HD at 1080p with its 12-megapixel shooter with a 170-degree wide-angle lens for wider and bigger viewing angles in tight areas or underwater conditions up to 98 feet down. This is impressive high quality footage at this price point.
“We bought this waterproof camera for our 11-yr-old daughter who wanted a GoPro but felt it was too pricey for a young child,” one satisfied Amazon reviewer wrote. “After reading the positive reviews on this camera this is what we chose and so glad we did! This camera is great for the cost! Really like the WiFi capability to be able to send photos right to my phone. Photos and videos are good quality! Our daughter is a swimmer and is always in the water and she has fun taking under water photos with her friends! I highly recommend this camera!”
The Davola Action Cam features time lapse photography, motion detection, a self-timer, loop recording and anti-shaking stabilization for smooth videos on bumpy and uneven roads and pathways. It comes with two rechargeable batteries for up to 90 minutes of recording time for each. That’s nearly an hour-and-a-half of time to capture footage!
“Super tiny camera,” a delighted Amazon reviewer wrote. “The camera is easy to use once I knew the function buttons. After just a few shots I was in love. The picture quality was focused and clear. It also surprised me that the camera contains many different settings. After using it for awhile, I now enjoy the fact it is tiny because I can slip it into my purse or pocket. I'm not sure how they fit in so may functions into the camera and at the same time produce so many nice pictures and videos. I would highly recommend this camera.”
This action cam comes with a wireless remote for hands-free control plus it’s WiFi-enabled — which means you can sync whatever you just filmed to your smartphone to share on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more.
It’s great for biking, diving, fishing, hiking, snorkeling, surfing and much more. If you’re an outdoor sports enthusiasts on a budget, the Davola Action Camera is a good choice to pick up.

I used it to take some fun and hilarious time lapse videos, underwater snorkeling videos, and underwater stills.

A waterproof case is included! Great camera, great price, great fun!”
For its versatility, build quality, and robust feature set, the Davola Action Camera is a really good value pick for waterproof and underwater photos and videos. Not bad for only $30.
