Main Specs and Features

The Akaso EK7000 is a digital sports action camera that can shoot 4K at 25fps. While it might not be the best, it is still one of the good deals for your money. This camera can also shoot 1080p at 30fps, and 1080 at 60fps. It comes with a small LCD screen which enables users to preview and review anything they record.

Another important feature is the ultra wide-angle lens. This makes it easier to shoot any type of picture or video you like. The Akaso camera is also waterproof and you can use it up to 100 feet underwater because of the special casing. This action camera has Wi-Fi capability so it is easier to share your work with your friends and family.

Video and image quality

As we mentioned earlier, this camera can shoot 4K. One thing that you should keep in mind, the camera is not going to have a great video quality if you shoot slow motion or at a higher resolution. On the other hand, if you want to shoot videos at the standard frame rate the quality is great.

The auto-focus is a great feature which is easy to use and it also makes it simpler to center the camera when you want to take a picture. This camera can shoot 12MP still photos and it also comes with a lot of different modes like burst photo, time lapse, and single photo.

Controls and Design

The design of this action camera is a common one. This device is box-shaped which makes it easier for users to mount it on helmets or on a chest mount. It is very compact, and it only weighs about 70g. It comes with a remote control which is a big plus considering the fact that you can operate the camera without even touching it.

Because it has WiFi capability, this camera can be paired with a smartphone and it is compatible with both iOS and Android. It comes with 2 rechargeable batteries which allow you to record for about 90 minutes. The waterproof casing is included in the standard package so you don’t have to purchase one by yourself.

Extra accessories and connectivity

It is important to mention that this camera, unlike many, comes with many extra accessories. While other action cameras don’t have anything extra in their standard package, this one is completed with many accessories which come in handy. Besides the waterproof housing, Akaso EK7000 comes with a lens cloth, a bike stand, helmet mounts and clips, USB cable, and a protective backdoor.

The special app for Android and iOS is a great addition. Because of this app, users can see and share everything they recorded. Another great thing is that it can be used to edit and review your work. Because of the Wi-Fi connectivity, this camera can be paired with a laptop or another device. Here you can use any program you wish to make small modifications to your work.

Conclusion
