Capture Everything with this 4K Sports Cam
The AKASO EK7000 4K Sports Cam is a perfect starter camera for anyone who wants to get started with vlogs but isn’t quite ready to shell out for the GoPro price. The compact body houses a WiFi Sports Action Camera featuring Ultra HD Waterproof DV Camcorder with a 12MP sensor and 170 Degree Wide Angle lens. It’s an affordable and functional camera that will capture all of your movements in 4K Ultra HD quality with smooth streaming.
The AKASO EK7000 offers 4K 25Fps and 2.7K 30Fps video with 12 MP photos. All of this at 30 frames per second, an offering that beats most HD cameras. Just imagine how your surfing, skating, and other action videos will look thanks to the 170-degree wide-angle lens. Made for adventuring, the camera offers a wrist remote control so you don’t have to fumble with a lot of functions. With the touch of a button, you can shift the mode from video to photo, or burst photo to time lapse. The remote is 2.4g so effortless transmission — just keep in mind that it’s not waterproof. Once you get your videos, you can use the built-in WiFi to connect it your tablet, smartphone, or computer to share via a text message, email, Twitter, Facebook, or other social media networks. The Wi-Fi control lets you control the camera from a distance of up to 50 feet or 15 meters. All of this recording is possible thanks to the included 2 rechargeable 1050maH batteries. Each offers 90 minutes of recording time and the batteries charge via an included USB cable. You can add a micro SD card of 64GB to the AKASO EK7000.
Now that you know what it records, what can you use it for? Answer: Anything! Paddling, surfing, skateboarding, diving, canoeing, etc. Record your travel vlogs. The AKASO EK7000 will withstand even the toughest days you put it through thanks to its durable waterproof case. The case can stand up to 100 feet or 30 meters, and you’ll get gorgeous footage. Parents, this is a good pick for kids who want to begin their own YouTube channel. It even ships with a bicycle stand and helmet mount, plus a couple of tethers, so they can get out there. And with the mounts, just turn on the loop recording and screen rotation and it’s a perfect dash cam. Perfect for parents of teen drivers. It ships with everything I’ve listed here and is available in blue, black, or silver.
One of my New Year’s resolutions is to take more video and photos this year so I’m picking up the AKASO EK7000. If you’re having the same thought, go ahead and take a chance on this sleek little camera.
