The SJ8 Pro is a premium level action camera from Chinese maker SJCam. Featuring 4K at 60FPS and stabilized 4K30, this camera has all the features a budget pro level camera should offer. The Akaso V50x is from a brand that primarily trades on Amazon and is some of the more popular budget action cams. Offering stabilized 4K30, this camera has decent video quality for the price. So is it worth spending twice as much on the SJ8 Pro?

he Akaso V50x is a real 4K action cam with stabilisation at 4K and costs under $100. The $100 price point is kind of a tough one because it is generally where manufactureres start to make sacrifices in order to meet the cheap price, so let’s talk about what the V50X does right, and whether or not it’s a good camera: spolier alert, it is pretty good, but there are a few things about it that might make be a deal breaker for you. I would honestly recommend going for the V50 pro if you can swing the extra $20.

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!
