What’s in the box?

I’ve never been more impressed by the presentation and feel of a bit of gear. The cam arrived in a sturdy hard carry case, making it seem much more premium than its price tag.

The case was big enough to house the many accessories, straps, battery packs that come with the MUSON MC1 action cam, and perfect for those who like to get rough and mucky on their adventures.

Decoding the various straps and accessories was very complicated but those who are well versed in the action cam world will not have a problem with it.

The accessories included waterproof housing box, handle bar/pole Mount, 9 various mounts, 2 clips, 4 bandages, 2 batteries, 2 tethers, 1 protective backdoor, 1 USB cable, 1 charging base, and finally- a lens cloth! The package contains everything you need, apart from a mains adapter to charge and a micro SD card for memory. For myself, as a beginner to the action cam world, this may have been a bit too much for me.

Matt and I took the camera on the legendary Tarka Trail in Devon. We hired bikes and strapped the cam to a helmet- which turned out to be rather fiddly, but as soon as it was secured- nothing could budge it!

Surprisingly, the camera recorded audio which we did not know it was capable of. Although the audio is quiet, the image quality is incredible for a camera in this price range. It is steady
and clear with a great wide angle shot for your action packed adventures.

The verdict

The look and feel of the camera is superb. It feels well designed, durable and most of all, completely fit for purpose. It boasts HD and WiFi capabilities along with a 30M, 170 degree
wide angle lens, 2 inch LCD screen, and up to 98ft depth when under water.

The only thing I’d recommend is educating yourself on action cams to avoid missing out on all the great features that this one contains.

At the bargain price of £39.99, the Muson Action Cam is a great budget alternative to a Go Pro, or a action-packed gift for someone who likes to walk on the wild side.
