The Eken H8r misses the mark due to blotchy video and the fact that it is not truly 4K capable and hardly even 2k capable. Were it advertised as a 1080p camera it would be acceptable: not the best camera I’ve ever used but far from the worst. It has solid build quality is and surprisingly good still images. It’s just too bad about all the problems with the video.
I owned this TV box for about a month before reviewing it. For that month it worked fine, but it suddenly stopped functioning. It turns out that the soldering around the power port had failed, and the power port separated from the board. This is likely due to heat. For this reason, I could not recommend this TV box despite its great performance.
Overall, this cam is a SKIP. If you want something better in this price range check out the Soocoo c30 as it is based on the IMX078 and Novatek platform which from my experience has been far more reliable in terms of video quality. Plus it has Gyro stabilization!
Overall these headphones produce good sound and are comfortable. If you’re ok with in-line buttons and the odd behind-ear hooks they perform pretty well.
The Musky DY-21L has quite a bit going for it in terms of sound quality. While the bass isn’t extremely heavy, the sound quality is overall decent with an ‘open’ feel to it. It has clear high tones and good mid-lows. Unfortunately some of the functionality of the speaker makes it difficult and frustrating to use.
So I managed to get my hands on a cheap $20 action cam from Amazon. This is the identical internal hardware for those “1080p” action cams that go for anywhere from $15-$20 on eBay. I thought I was buying a slightly better cheap action camera and this was a good deal – but the listing was misleading and I ended up with a piece of garbage. Skip to 2:00 in the video if you just want to see samples.
Overall I really like this little camera. It’s got decent video quality for the price and some nice mounting hardware.
Summary The SooCoo C30 represents one of the best cost versus performance ratios currently available on the market and has excellent value. I would recommend it to those who want a cheap action cam as it has all the necessary features: a Sony sensor, decent still images, smooth 1080p60 and a gyro stabiliser. My only complaints surround the user interface and a little problem with the colour in direct sunlight. Overall, though this camera is not perfect, it is a great deal.

I’ve drawn with a half dozen graphics tablets and I can say the Huion H610 is among the better I’ve used. The pen pressure works great, with decent weight variation. The tablet has a modestly rough texture to it, not exactly like drawing on paper but not smooth either. It reminds me of drawing on my old Wacom Intuos 2 in terms of handling – and that’s a good thing. The only parts that were difficult was the driver install.
This is a firmware test with the new Git2 firmware. Hopefully it fixes the colour balance problems I have experienced!
