In the hunt for the best budget 4K action cam from Amazon, we purchased 8 different cameras to test and put in a head to head showdown. Let’s see which camera is the best!
The Vantop Moment 5C is a budget 4K action cam that claims to produce 4K 60 FPS video at under $100. While it is true that the camera can make a 4K video file with 60 FPS, this format is interpolated (upscaled) from a lower resolution. However this camera appears to do near-true 4K 30 with image stabilization and very decent 1080p 30 with EIS. As well, it produces colourful and vibrant video that most people will find pleasing, especially if they are not pixel peepers.
The Vantop Moment 6S positions itself price wise between true budget cams and the high end. The 6S has great build quality, very respectable video and good audio from the internal mic and should be more than enough camera for those who are wanting something premium but don’t want to pay GoPro money.
Black Friday, Christmas and Boxing Day are just around the corner and it’s time for another yearly round-up of the best action cameras of 2019. Cameras on this roundup start at $26 so check it out now!
