TomTom Bandit review

 

The Bandit doesn't just shoot great video clips, it turns them into action movies too

GoPro mount option ; Easy to use ; Quick video edit and upload

Heavier than some rivals ; Needs separate lens cover for waterproofing ; Bullet shape makes some mount options tricky

Built in motion sensors, GPS, manual tagging and easy operation are only the start of this ground breaking action camera. The shake-to-edit feature cuts out the pain of editing and lets you upload your movies quickly and without fuss.

TomTom Bandit review: Capture action the easy way

 

TomTom is diversifying and the Bandit sees the Dutch navigation company move into action cameras. We've seen TomTom lend its name to sat nav and sports devices and there's a nod to GPS experience in the TomTom Bandit, but this is really a foray into...

Waterproof out of the box (with a caveat), innovative mounting system, slick app that offers highlights, zero edit options

Regular lens cover traps moisture, low-light performance isn’t great, fairly bulky design

When it comes to action cameras there are a lot of options. GoPro is the dominant force in the market, with a wide range of products to suit the needs of many. The TomTom Bandit sits somewhere close to the GoPro Hero4 Session in terms of tech specs and...

TomTom Bandit: can the satnav maker beat GoPro at its own game?

 

The satnav giant is aiming to shake up the action-camera market with its striking and feature-packed machine

Easy to use ; Fast app streaming ; Create-a-Story feature

Record and stop not together ; Waterproofing needs Dive Lens ; 4K frame rate is poor

At this point, the action-camera market is pretty crowded. So what do you do if you want to get noticed? Well, other than coming in at a really low price , you go after user pain points. Perhaps the biggest one for most people is what to do with all...

TomTom's Bandit action camera uses built-in sensors to tag all the potential highlights in your clips to make editing easier. Its mobile app lets you quickly create a highlight reel just by shaking your smartphone. Charging and video/photo transfers...

Though video quality is very good from the Bandit, you'll get better results for your $400 from GoPro's Hero4 Silver or Sony's Action Cam X1000V. Mounting plate doesn't securely lock. GPS and other sensor information is only used for tagging. No...

The TomTom Bandit ably addresses several pain points with other action cams thanks to its quick mobile editing, versatile mounting system and removable battery.

TomTom Bandit

 

The Bandit is TomTom's first foray into the action-camera market. This may seem like a strange departure for a sat-nav company, but Garmin released its own take on the genre with the VIRB about 18 months ago. Both companies also focus on GPS devices...

Robust and attractive design ; LCD panel makes configuration easy ; Comprehensive remote control via smartphone app

4K only available at 15 frames/sec ; No professional-grade video data rate options

The TomTom Bandit is a well-made and feature-rich action camera, but it might not be enough to tempt you away from the latest GoPro.

The Bandit’s headline feature is its focus on editing and sharing your footage straight from your smartphone.

TomTom Bandit Review

 

The Bandit is an action camera that provides some of the best shooting options in the industry. For that reason alone, it is a solid option to capture all your favorite activities and events. In addition to this, it also has some cool features like its...

Special sensors flag the most interesting parts of your footage for later use with an automatic editing application.

This camera requires extra parts to be dive capable.

The TomTom has its problems like sub-par waterproofing, an unusual battery design and increased size and weight, but it provides solid framerate/resolution options, a useful design and a unique auto-editing method. Although it's not for everyone, it's...
