Okay, now let’s continue with our review:
2” IPS display adds up in Akaso V50. Not only is there a feature of touch screen, but you can also operate your camera through its buttons present on its side. But this touch screen has not many positive reviews. Many people complain that this screen is very small to operate effectively. Also, screen elements are always present on the touch screen. This does not allow the full view on-screen hence it acts as a turn off for videographer.
Advanced Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) feature is built-in Akaso V50 pro. It ensures steady videos, no matter how bumpy conditions are. You can also go hands-free with this camera by using several commands. You can use this action camera hands-free by saying commands such as “Camera turn off,” “Action Photo,” “Action start video,” and “Action stop Shooting.”
This camera isn’t waterproof itself, but it comes with a waterproof casing. With this casing, you can use this camera up to 40 meters deep inside the water. Akaso is here to make sure that you don’t miss capturing your moments of adventure even when you’re underwater. Talking about this action camera being waterproof, there’s one drawback. This camera lacks native water resistance. You can’t use this camera in simple cases such as rain. The remote controller for this camera, which comes with the package, is also not waterproof hence on risk.
Without waterproof cover, this action camera only weighs around 76g. This camera is so lightweight to carry anywhere with you either it’s your friend’s birthday party, bbq with family or your hiking adventure in the mountainous region.
Generally, Akaso V50 pro is easy to operate, but Akaso company tried to add value in this ease. They provide the number of mounts in each packaging. There’s a providence of mounts for bicycles, helmets. You name a place, and there’s the amount for this action camera available for you in packaging. Not only can you use these mounts to operate this camera but other cameras to such as GoPro Action Cameras. Being useful with other action cameras is a very great feature of accessories in the packaging of Akaso V50.
One of the accessories within the box is a wireless remote control. This remote adds ease to control your camera. You can fit it on your wrist and control your camera through its buttons. It’s only drawback is that it isn’t waterproof. The remote control feature not only makes V50 pro easy to use but also makes sure of personal safety. Operating with remote control on the wrist is a much safer option when you are on the go.
8x slow-motion video can introduce you to a new world of videography. You can slow your video up to 8 times on a high fps rate of 720p and reminisce moments of your adventure. There’s also amazing distortion-free option available, which removes around of lens adding up in this wide 170° wide-angle lens.
Capture your precious moments and share them instantly with the built-in Wi-Fi of Akaso V50 pro. This Wi-Fi enables your action camera to connect with your smartphone from where you can share, play, and download your videos without any trouble.
This action camera is indeed a decent budget and pocket attempt keeping in mind the high prices of GoPro. It has great core features, camera results, and usability.
