A fantastic little action camera that came out just before the Xiaomi Mijia 4k. Both priced at the same at around $100 but this one has voice control but loses out on the resolution and only provides interpolated 4K video recordings.

It looks a little funky but that doesn't matter and if it spends most of it's time inside the waterproof case, no worries.

A solid little camera, much like the Gitup Git 2 with it's 1080p recording, a good sensor and chipset and because of it's size is very versatile.

An incredible entry level action camera, records in HD 1080p at up to 60fps and does it well. No crazy gimmicks, no fake 4K video recording and a trusted support offering from Apeman who seem to be making good action cameras and dash cams.

A great little camera with tons of settings and an info screen to control it all, compared to the Mobius camera it has a bit more going on with it. You can connect it to multiple devices like a larger battery or video out to help with RC/FPV use but it's let down by smaller field of view and no waterproof housing.

A fantastically cheap yet powerful little action camera by Eken, they do many different versions but this is one of their cheapest. Although this camera advertises 4K video footage, it is interpolated, which means it records at a lower resolution then just adds pixels to that to get a 4k "look", so this isn't a real 4K action camera.

There is also no image stabalization on this camera, but the quality of the video and photographs are still very good.
