Great action camera – AKASO EK7000

Akaso EK7000 camera is not too good in landscape photography. This camera is not designed for this use as it does not allow you to adjust ISO, shutter speed or aperture. Also, it does not come with an autofocus system. Although it is quite portable, its materials do not feel very robust without its included case.
Akaso EK7000 is horrible for travel photography. This camera isn’t really designed for photography, as the camera doesn’t allow you to adjust iso speed, aperture, or shutter. In addition, it is not created with an autofocus system, which can be disappointing if you want it to automatically monitor moving subjects.Akaso EK7000 cameraAkaso EK7000 is looking for action videos. This small lightweight camera can be easily mounted on helmet equipment. With its case included, it has a solid construction and is even classified for water resistance when used with your case, although we don’t test for it at the moment. He also does a good job of smoothing the camera shock. That said, its 4k and FHD video quality is poor and doesn’t offer many frame rate options for slow motion image recording.
The Akaso EK7000 has no camera stabilization, a feature that some of GoPro and Sony’s premium action cameras have pushed hard. Stabilization helps you get smoother images directly from the camera. Without this built-in feature, if you want a smoother movie than Akaso, your best approaches are to use a good gimbal or apply corrections during post-processing footage.
Burst mode requires a quick sequence of still images. It’s useful for quick action when you want to increase your chances of capturing the fleeting moment you’re looking for.
Burst mode on the EK7000 takes 3 photos over 1.5 seconds.
In general, action cameras don’t have a good battery life. The Akaso EK7000 adheres to this trend, but I was actually pleasantly surprised at how well it did. We did some tests, and at 4K25 and 1080p30, I received about 1 hour and 40 minutes, give or take, before the battery dies. For the 4K setting, this is actually slightly above some of its competitors. At 1080p30, which usually imposes lower requirements on the battery, it is on par with competitors or a shadow at the bottom.
Overall, therefore, the battery life is quite insignificant compared to other action cameras. You won’t be surprised by the higher battery life, but again it also comes with a backup battery that can be put into good use.
To maximize battery life, leave the wifi off, do not use the mobile app, and minimize the amount of display on the back screen.Akaso EK7000 cameraIt is also worth remembering that lithium batteries do not work well at very cold or very hot temperatures. This is not unique to this camera, it applies to all lithium batteries. So, if you’re filming in the winter cold and find that you’re not getting much battery usage, that might be the reason. You can try to keep the battery a little warmer to help you. An inner pocket of a jacket works great, but of course do not put it under any circumstances near a flame, oven or microwave! When lithium batteries burn, they burn exceptionally intensely.
You can connect to the camera using the iSmart DV app, which is a general utility mobile app compatible with this camera. It is available for IOS and Android. Photo: Akasotech
Its interface looks a lot like the GoPro app, although it doesn’t have the same polishing. There is a preview of what the lens is seeing. You can start and stop recording or take photos. And you can adjust resolutions and shooting modes and view photos and images.
The Akaso EK7000 is a compact camera designed for action videos. With its case included, it looks pretty solid and you can easily mount this camera on a helmet computer due to its lightweight design. In addition, its good video stabilization performance helps smooth the movement of the camera, even if you move quickly during shooting. That said, its video quality isn’t the best and there’s some visual noise present, especially if you’re shooting in low light.
