What customers say about "Size & Weight"
AKASO EK7000 Action Camera (4K, WiFi, Waterproof)
  • Size and weight, this action cam is almost identical to a GoPro, other than a little thicker. Length and width is the same, with maybe a larger lens. Weight is very similar.
  • Not great but good for the size of the camera and the video quality.
  • It's a really decent and lightweight camera.

What customers say about "Display"
AKASO EK7000 Action Camera (4K, WiFi, Waterproof)
  • It is easy to operate and has a LCD screen on its back. It feels sturdy and did not break when I dropped it.
  • The product is easy to use and the LCD screen makes filming/photographing much easier.
  • Easy to use and good size screen to see what you want to capture. Good product for price.
  • The LCD screen is terrible - I have to look at it at an angle to see the image properly. If I look at it dead on, it has that "off-angle" look LCD screens get when you look at them from a weird angle.
  • The interface is pretty nice. The LCD screen isn't the highest of quality, and does actually make the footage looks sub-par (more on quality of footage below), but it does the job fine.

  • The only wish would be for a screen for viewing, but we knew going into it that this camera did not have one. It is a good camera for the price.
  • Great camera, only wish it had a view screen to see what you're recording or taking shots of
  • Amazing videos and very good picture resolution, although the fact of doesn't provide any screen makes a really downside when you're shooting videos because you're never completely sure if you're focusing right.
  • Only downfall on this is that it does not have a screen nor a replaceable battery but I'm perfectly ok with that and was willing to make that sacrifice since the quality of the videos is great and with a power adapter it recharges fairly quick.

What customers say about "Video"
AKASO EK7000 Action Camera (4K, WiFi, Waterproof)
  • The options of the video format is great. I will start video more on 1080P at 60FPS for my snowboarding this Winter.
  • Video quality is fine in good lighting.
  • The quality of the photos and videos are good but don't expect the same quality you would get from a more expensive camera or those professional cameras.
  • The video is pretty grainy on mine as are the photos in any format, maybe mine is defective or something.
  • Lack of image stabilization was also a problem. Most videos turned out shaky even when I was trying to hold the camera as still as possible. My understanding is that higher end cameras from more premium brands fix this via automatic stabilization.
  • I was concerned about the lack of image stabilization but have not seen any issues with this.
  • First and foremost, there's no image stabilization, so your videos are always going to be shaky and there's nothing you can do.

  • The pictures and video we took came out great even underwater. We were surprised at how good the audio recording was as well

What customers say about "Features"
AKASO EK7000 Action Camera (4K, WiFi, Waterproof)
  • The wi-fi function works great as well as the remote that came with the camera.
  • The Wi-Fi functionality is cool, but it's often leggy and unnecessary. Overall, these things are awesome and a fraction of the price of the top brand name.
  • Especially like the fact that it is water resistant because we wanted to use it while it sprinkled as well for our outdoor activities.
  • The wi-fi functionality is definitely on the camera, but when I try to pair it with the app it throws an error saying it's not compatible.
  • The only down side is I didn't realize it didn't come with a micro SD card so we had to get one before we could use the camera. Overall she is very happy with this camera.
