The Veho Muvi K2NPNG is a veritable bargain of an action camera with plenty of accessories bundled in

Specifications

Sensor: Not disclosed, Sensor pixels: 16000000, Max recording resolution: 1080p (60fps), AV connections: Mini HDMI, Size (HxWxD): 40x23x60mm, Weight: 84g, Warranty: One year RTB 

The K2NPNG doesn’t ship in a cardboard box; it arrived at our office in a hard carry case that you’re able to keep and use to transport the action camera and its wealth of accessories around with you. There’s a clasp that keeps it locked shut and the inside is generously padded. There’s just enough space to add in additional accessories should you buy other mounts, too.

The hard carry case is just one of many extras you get with the K2NPNG that you really wouldn’t expect given its low price. The other highlight is an LCD screen that attaches to the back of the camera to provide a live view as well as additional navigation controls. This is similar to the optional Touch BacPac available for GoPro cameras, although without touchscreen controls. This means you’re able to frame your shots more easily and change settings without having to use your smartphone.

You get a decent array of mounts in the box, including various sticky and Velcro mounts for flat and curved surfaces, a right-angle mount and a helmet front mount. GoPro mounts will also work, opening up your options. All of the mounts will work with or without the waterproof case, which will help cut down on weight if you’re doing activities that don’t involve water. 

It is worth noting that a Muvi K2, which doesn’t come with the aforementioned accessories, is available for around £30 less, but the K2NPNG version is easily worth the extra. Other action camera manufacturers can charge more simply for a hard carry case alone, making it a more than worthwhile upgrade once you factor in the LCD screen.

You also get an 8GB microSD card, but you might want to reserve it as a backup and buy a larger card for general use. You’ll only get about 1hr 30m of 1080p, 30fps footage on an 8GB card.

The K2NPNG doesn’t deviate from typical action camera design, looking like a cross between the GoPro Hero4 and Rollei’s ActionCam range. Free from the confines of its waterproof case and without the LCD screen attached it’s a fraction larger than a GoPro, and its lens extends out a little further.

Things get considerably chunkier once you put the action camera inside its waterproof case, however. There are two waterproof backs you can attach to the case, dependent on whether or not you’re using the LCD screen. With the screen attached the whole package becomes large, heavy and cumbersome. The waterproof case does at least allow you to go to depths of 100m, which is considerably deeper than most rivals.

You’ll want to make sure you use the anti-mist inserts inside the case, otherwise the lens and housing will mist up under wet conditions and forgetting to do so will result in disappointing video. You might also want to buy a few spares, as you might find yourself going through them quite quickly once they get saturated with moisture. Generic inserts will work fine. Continues on Page 2
