Specs and features of the SooCoo S100 Pro action camera.

Summary

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.

Reasons to buy

7 Reasons to buy the SooCoo S100 Pro action camera

  • Released in mid 2017 so a relatively new action camera
  • Price point at less than $100 so affordable for most who wish to get a new action camera
  • Stabalization on the camera to ensure smooth recordings and footage, no matter what adventures you're on
  • Solid choices in the Sony and Novatek image sensor and chipsets, really good hardware
  • Some decent recording features, including loop mode so can be used as a d ashcam or on a bicycle
  • A decent battery life at 2 hours continuous recording at 1080p 30fps
  • Has WiFi and voice control, so you can go hands free or use your phone to control the camera from a distance hands-free
Reasons not to buy

3 reasons to NOT buy the SooCoo S100 Pro action camera

  • No RAW feature for photos, only JPEG
  • This isn't real 4k, it's interpolated and the maximum resolution is 2k
  • Image stabalization works at the 2k video res but not at 4k, because it doesn't get that high
