For those interested in a basic 1080p 30 FPS action camera without too many bells and whistles, the F23 action cam takes decent video and has an acceptable build quality. Its best uses would be as a cheap bike DVR for road riders or for someone who will occasionally use their camera and does not want to throw down a lot of cash. While it’s limited by its hardware, it has set my personal standard for video quality in a sub-$60 camera.
This speaker has a respectable audio profile, with a decent mix of low, mids and highs. Due to its size restriction, it does not have much in the way of deep bass, however it makes up for that by boosting the mids. This has a tendency to muffle treble a little bit, but it provides a rich, warm tonal range especially at lower volumes. The awesome build quality combined with the decent sound make it quite a good speaker.
This is an unbranded head unit that functions with primarily touch input. It comes in a plain box. It runs on a customs Windows CE software that resembles older Windows phones.
The X2000 has tack sharp 2K video with good color and exposure. It includes a mounting system for drone and FPV use but is not compatible with most action cam hardware. The camera does not have a screen, but instead includes a 5.8ghz wireless video transmitter.
It’s difficult to choose between these two cameras and a lot of it comes down to what you’re looking for in a camera. If you’re looking for something straightforward with decent video quality out of camera and easier operation, buy the M20. If you’re interested in a camera that can be tweaked and customized and has better audio, go for the Git2.
This is my favorite SJCam I’ve tested to date, with excellent daylight recording and a unique form factor. Aside from some needed improvements with the gyro and low light recording, this is a good option for those looking for a budget action camera.
The AutoVox D2 is a cheap dash cam built with low quality internal components. The result is a device that has poor video quality and low reliability. I reccommend looking at the A118-C (link above) as it is known for higher quality video and better reliability.
This Amaz-Play HDP-100 projector is a compact projector with acceptable brightness and a sharp picture, but the picture is too blue and the fan is quite loud. It works fine for movies and multimedia but for applications that require accurate colour I would recommend looking at the WH-80B or something with 100+ lumens instead.
I would highly recommend avoiding this camera. So much so that I haven’t even included links to buy it. From the outside the camera looks like any ordinary camcorder, but it has poor quality video in almost all situations. It is advertised as HD capable but the only usable format is 480p.
While it’s nice to have the solar panel as a last-resort type backup, it does not do much, so consider this product as its value as a regular charger before purchasing. When left on my window sill for days in direct sunlight, I was only able to get this charger up to about 25%. This is better than nothing, but solar will not be your primary charging source with this battery.
