The HyphenX M80 is an Amazon Special of a generic action cam. All of these cams share similar hardware, so this review also applies to all of them. While some “brands” may have minor improvements over others or different included accessories, do not buy them. The results are universally disappointing and far worse than other cameras at this price point.
The V50 Elite is one of Akaso’s best camera. It has quite a lot going for it: decent 4K with stabilisation, acceptable audio quality and a touch screen UI, so how does it stack up compared to other cams in its price range? Well, on Amazon, there are few other cams at this price that hold up to it in terms of video quality so let’s take a closer look at it.
Xiaomi Mijia is a renown brand for budget, high quality electronics. So how does the Mijia stabilizer hold up? Well, turns out it does a pretty decent job, despite the app being a little simplistic. If you’re the kind of individual who films a lot of handheld footage with a smartphone, then a handheld smartphone gimbal is for you, and there’s honestly little reason to spend more money.
It’s hard to appreciate just how small this tiny 2-in-1 is; and that’s what makes it one of the coolest devices we have reviewed to date. This niche laptop will not be for everyone as it does have some flaws, but those who are interested in this type of device will not be disappointed if they buy it knowing its limitations. Relatively snappy performance, full Windows 10 and a folding pen/touch design are its highlights!
This is a head-to-head with two great action cams from 2018. They’re both great values but with the video side by side it can help you decide which one will work best for you! Either way you are going to get an excellent camera – just that one will be better for some people based on how they use it. Planning to film in 1080p only? Save some money with the Firefly 8SE. 4K? SJ8 all the way.
The Seago SG515 is a decent electric toothbrush with one key feature – USB charging. In terms of cleaning quality, it is on par with brand name products such as Philips Sonicare, however the build quality feels much cheaper. Buy this product if you want a cheap USB toothbrush, but if you don’t care about the size of the base and the portability then buy this Philips instead.
As far a basic Android TV Box goes, the Scishion AI One gets the basics down and has better specs than some of the competition, but a couple limitations hold it back from being an easy to recommend device.
The SJCam SJ8 Pro is SJCam’s top end action cam with a feature set to match. With 4K at 60 FPS and stabilised real 4K at 30 FPS, on paper this camera has a lot going for it. Can it live up to the hype? Well…
The SJCam SJ8 Plus is a great camera, except in one major circumstance: filming in 4K 30FPS with stabilisation turned can cause some stuttering. It may be our copy of the camera, however this issue makes the cam difficult to recommend when there’s several other cameras in the same price bracket that can film real 4K without issues. Step up to the SJCam SJ8 Pro for only a few dollars more.
The Viofo A129 is my current camera of choice, replacing my previous daily driver set up of the A119 + A119S. The A129 is a worthy successor to these cams, featuring clear dual 1080p with great night video. This is one of the first dual dashcams that I can recommend with ease, despite some little things that could be improved. If you want a single forward facing cam, get the Viofo A119 instead. If you want a front and rear setup without the hassle of wiring two separate cams, the A129 is a decent budget choice. And don’t forget a good memory card to go with this camera.
