What customers say about "Size & Weight"

  • It is waterproof, compact, lightweight and can go wherever I do -up a rock face, down the piste, along the cycle track, or having pictures of my family day on the beach.

  • The camera is small and light weight with a rubberised casing. Looks good, recommended.
  • The camera itself is compact and operates in various video and still frame modes.

What customers say about "Display"
AKASO V50 Elite 4K/60fps Touch Screen WiFi Action Camera
  • I'm not a fan of the buttons, so touch screen makes things simple. Well just swipe and tap, you will catch and shot what you want. I am very amazed how good it is. I recommend this camera.
  • The back of the camera is touch screen and although its no iPhone touch screen it works pretty well and is responsive.
  • Only just started using it, but the image quality looks good to me. Touch screen and remote work well.
  • Great touch screen that is very touch responsive and an easy to use menu.
  • The touch screen seems a little slow to react, that is only issue which i have with that camera.

  • Small display on front it's useful when you check the camera's status when you use it.
  • Touch screen is well responsive, so much better than previous model SJ7 Star.

What customers say about "Video"
AKASO V50 Elite 4K/60fps Touch Screen WiFi Action Camera
  • I recorded few sample videos in 4K 30 and 60 FPS, it looks crisp without fiddling with any camera settings.
  • Pictures look blurry, lack of sharpness is obvious, colors were so washed out and video was the same.
  • The audio and video quality is better than I expected, I have tried the GoPro Hero 7, and I can assure you the gap different in the pricing is not worth it unless you are a videographer.
  • Video quality is at least as good, although stabilization can only be activated at 4k@30fps, not 60fps, not 1080 60fps.
  • In terms of video quality, I have to say I was really disappointed, I have a cheap 4k phone which was a bit more than this, but the quality was far superior than the V50.

  • Photo and Video quality seems good.(I'm not professional to photo/video).
  • Stable video, lots of useful helmet attachments provided , 2 hours battery life , responsive touch screen.
  • REAL 4K video. More features, like controlling ISO which is a big deal for me as it can be critical when recording at night and avoiding saturating with too much ISO.
  • I haven’t had the camera out on the trails yet, but test video around the house looks good.
  • The camera gave me a perfect video with great stabilization ability. The touchscreen makes it easier to operate.
