AKASO EK5000 1080p WIFI Sports Action Camera 12MP HD

AKASO EK5000 1080p WIFI Sports Action Camera Review

The AKASO EK5000 Sports Action Camera is a small camera that allows you to capture and view high-quality HD pictures via your Smartphone or tablet devices. Designed with a large 2.0-inch LCD screen, this camera allows you to view all captured contents clearly without any clarity issues.

The 12MP camera and quality video resolutions of 1080p/30fps, 720p/60fps and 720p/30fps offer you a perfect opportunity to view classic contents whenever you need them.

Apart from the quality video clarity, the AKASO EK5000 Sports Action Camera comes with the latest WiFi technology that allows you to connect with multiple devices to view or share videos/photos wirelessly. With a water-resistant feature of up to 100 feet deep underwater, this sports action camera is great to consider for any outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, camping, swimming or skydiving.

Features of AKASO EK5000 Sports Action Camera

  • Outstanding video capture— This camera comes with an excellent 1080p and 720p video quality that’s sharp and crystal clear. The quality of the videos/photos captured is not affected by the surrounding environment. This means that the AKASO can be used to capture images of marine life up to 100 feet deep underwater as well as in rainy, snowy or foggy environments.
  • WiFi enabled— The WiFi feature is very important in such a powerful camera because it allows you to connect with third party apps such as EZ iCam to pair with iOS as well as Android smartphones and tablets. Although the WiFi feature has the capacity to pair with devices that are10 meters away, the performance can be affected by obstacles such as walls.
  • The battery— One drawback of modern smart devices is the battery life. A weak battery can really lower the ratings of a high-quality device even if the rest of the features are perfect. With the AKASO EK5000 Sports Action Camera, the manufacturer realized this and therefore included two rechargeable 900mAh batteries that offer twice as much recording time as compared to other cameras.

Pros

  • The AKASO EK5000 Sports Action Camera comes with a compact waterproof case that allows you to take photos and record videos underwater up to 100 feet deep.
  • The camera comes with only four buttons, making it very easy to operate and handle.
  • There are lots of mounting accessories available for this camera. This makes it easy to operate in any setting.
  • The camera comes with WiFi feature and two interchangeable batteries for easy swapping.

Cons

  • The battery of this camera is very weak. However, because it lasts only 1.5 hours while recording videos, the manufacturer has included another identical battery to cover for this drawback.
  • The camera doesn’t come with a microSD card. You’ll have to buy one separately if you want to record longer videos.

A lot has been said about the AKASO EK5000 Sports Action Camera.
