Digital Camera World Verdict

The PD70 isn’t a device designed to capture amazing video, but one to protect against dishonesty. Given that, it captures more than adequate quality video, subject only to the vibrations imposed by the host. Given it is possible to spend significantly more on a body cam without gaining much in terms of features, we see this as good value.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

Boblov offers body cameras for a broad range of users, from emergency services and security agents, through ride-share operators, to consumers looking to document their travels and adventures. The desire to avoid false accusations or frivolous litigation is a common bond, but there are also those who simply want to document their experiences.

The PD70 isn’t the highest resolution camera available, but it does sport all the key functions, putting it in the equivalent of a prosumer spot. It even adds a wi-fi download app and mini-HDMI socket, which definitely extends the offering beyond the basic, though the style and shape suggest a traditional uniform chest.
