We are checking out a brand new action camera from a cast so cool the ek 7000 Pro this is also very affordable action camera because you can buy this for about $70 and for the price we do get a lot of value first of all we have a touch screen on the back so this is a 2 inch touch screen something that we don’t usually see with action cameras this chip not to mention that you get a bunch of stuff in the box.
The first thing you’re gonna see is the waterproof case and supposedly the waterproof case is going to up to 30 meters in the water. but of course I haven’t been diving with it but I did have it in water and up there was no water going inside you also get a remote control so you can start and stop recordings or even take pictures without actually touching the camera so that could be useful in a lot of situations and you even get two batteries for it so we get to 1050 million power berries for it and the charger for those two batteries now one charge you should be able to get between 45 to 55 minutes if you are recording in 1080p so not the best recording time out there but since you have two batteries I guess that’s good enough and aside from that of course there are a bunch of stickers and mounts you can basically mount this camera anywhere on a tripod on a bicycle on a helmet pretty much anywhere the mounts up
You’re gonna find in the box so as I said a lot a lot of value the camera has electronic image stabilization as well but electronic image stabilization only works if you are recording in 1080p at 30 frames per second or 60 frames per second if you are recording in 4k at 25 frames per second the image stabilization doesn’t work and talking about that 4k at 25 frames per second I wasn’t able to find them the specs for this camera anywhere so I’m not sure what processor is being used inside so I can really confirm if this camera can actually recording room 4k from the looks of it I don’t believe that it records in real 4k I think that’s just an interpolated um 2k recording but as I said I cannot confirm and since we are talking about image stabilization I might as well and show you a couple of samples the image stabilization on and the image stabilization off on while recording in 1080p energy forest of the image stabilization works this and definitely not the best that I’ve ever seen but we have taken to consideration the price of the camera so for $70 I think it doesn’t good enough now taking a look at the camera itself so the camera is entirely made out of plastic it doesn’t look anything up spectacularly it doesn’t exactly feel premium but again it is fairly cheap on the front we have the power button and the mode button of course and we can see the brand name and the model name at the top we have the recording button and also an LED and that LED cannot be turned on or off so whenever you’re recording that led will always flash on the right-hand side we have a couple of buttons so you can navigate them menus and on the left hand side we have the HDMI out port the micro USB charging port and the slot for the SD card this camera can take SD cards up to 64 gigs and I tried a couple of 64 Giga SD cards with them they both work fine and there’ll be links in the video’s description just in case you don’t know what SD card to buy for it you can also charge these while recording so for example if you’re doing the time-lapse you can have a power bank plugged into the camera I can still do that time-lapse on without any issues and talking about time lapses the camera can also do time-lapse is at the press of a button so you just don’t have to do anything you just press start recording and the camera will do the time-lapse for you just above the charging port we also have the holes for the microphone and that’s the internal microphone because this camera cannot support external microphones you’re always gonna have to rely on the internal microphone and I guess I’m gonna show you a couple of samples that I’ve done the internal microphone so you can see how it sounds so let’s um check those out alright this is a quick microphone test they can so Kiki 7000 recording in 1080p at 30 frames per second I have the image stabilization turned off but I am using a gimbal one of these conditions so basically what this is no microphone recording from this action camera sound like we have our second microphone test Bay Castle ek 7000 prop once again.
I’m recording in 1080p at 30 frames per second and I’m using the camera on the gimbal but this time around I am talking behind the camera so under these conditions walking with a bit of wind and some traffic this is how microphone recording from this action camera would sound like and lastly moving to the back of the camera that we have the 2 inch touchscreen that I mentioned earlier the touch sensitivity isn’t the best out there so don’t imagine that the touch sensitivity is gonna be as good as you’d get on a smartphone but definitely good enough for the price as for the screen quality once again not the best screen out there I’m the vinner angles are decent enough so not amazing but good enough for the price of the camera the ek 7000 Pro can also be controlled from your smartphone or tablet over Wi-Fi so the camera can make a Wi-Fi network you connect to that Wi-Fi network on your smartphone or tablet of course you’re gonna have to install an app on on your smartphone or tablet and then you can see everything the camera sees right on your on a smartphone you can start and stop recordings you can change settings and of course you can see everything that you have recorded up in the past from the camera so very useful feature but this only works good up to 10 meters away from the camera next we are moving on to the most important thing for any action camera and that is the quality of the video recording so I’m gonna show some recordings that I’ve done in 1080p at 30 frames per second and 1080p at 60 frames per seconds you can see for yourself how long they look and then I’ll come back so you can talk about those recordings as you see for us of the 1080p recordings are on the sharpest um recordings out there and the quality decreases quite a bit and as soon as you turn on the electronic image stabilization but once again we have taken to consideration the price of the camera and that if you want something better of course you’re gonna have to spend more money so for 70 bucks that’s what we get moving on to nighttime recordings well these ones don’t look that amazing either I mean they’re fairly dark and once again as soon as you have the image stabilization turned on the quality decreases quite um quite a bit as well so let’s check out those nighttime recordings that I’ve done.
Oh did so you’ve probably seen for yourself from this camera is not gonna be the best for nighttime recording some s for pictures because of course this is the camera it can also take pictures the quality of the pictures isn’t that amazing either now the settings menu it’s very simple and much simpler than a lot of other action cameras that I’ve seen in the past so if you go in the settings menu you basically can change the video resolution you can turn on or off the image stabilization you can choose on the lenses angles so it depends how wide you want the image to be you have loop recording time lapse settings and so on as for the general settings menu there you can change on the language we do have some languages available and they’re not that many types in for other action cameras but good enough and of course you can even flip the camera upside down so it really depends how long you are using it but overall you don’t have as many settings as I have seen for a lot of other run action cameras in the past so to quickly conclude this video the key 7000 Pro is decent for $70 because for $70 you do get a lot of value we get on all that stuff that comes in the box and you get decent enough video recordings but if you are looking for better image stabilization if you are looking for better video quality you should probably spend some more money and get something better
