GoXtreme Rebel and Reef action cams aim to make a splash

GoXtreme Rebel

GoXtreme is a German company that specialises in budget action cameras, and the Rebel and Reef are its two latest models. They’re being sold in the UK at Sainsburys and Argos respectively, and at prices which could make them the best action camera  for anyone scared off by the prices of GoPros and Garmins.

The Rebel is the tough dude of the two, and you certainly get a lot of protection for the price. It comes with a rugged mud-proof and waterproof casing which can be used at depths of up to 30m, which is getting into pretty serious deep diving territory.
