Description: In terms of camera footage, Aukey AC-LC 2 can match the GoPro action cam. As you can see from the video results, even the underwater one, all looks stunning. Colors quality is balanced and vivid. The recording itself isn’t shaky and smooth. Even when you directly record videos facing the sun, there won’t be many flares in the result.

Effective Pixels How much effective pixels the action camera has, it's measured in MPX (megapixel). These pixels are used for capturing the incoming light. These pixels are the ones that take the image/video. New cameras have the ability to decreas the pixel number, which you would use if you want to make a picture smaller. This process doesn't use less pixels, it just resizes the image.
12 Mpx (megapixeles)
Video Resolution This is the pixel number that a display or a camera sensor has (refers to the digital image of the action camera). If the action camera has a higher resolution, that means that it is capable of taking shots that have more pixels. If you have more pixels then they can provide the display with the ability of more visual information. So, simply put, the higher the resolution, the better images/videos your action camera will be able to take. The best resolution an action camera can have is 4K, Ultra HD (3840 x 2160).
Video Frame Rate The frame rate or FPS at which the action camera takes it pictures/videos. Many high quality cameras record at 30 fps. Frame rate or FPS in many occasions is reffered to as frame frequency. This is measured in hertz. Most of the movies are made at 24 fps so, you won't be needing more than 30 fps on your action camera.

170 ° (degrees)
Maximum Aperture The Aperture of a lens shows us how much light goes through the lense. The bigger the aperture the more light goes through, unlike a small aperture which lets less light in. The Aperture is measured in f-stops. The larger the aperture the smaller the f-stop number.
Display screen Whether or not the action camera has a display screen. The display screen is used for viewing images or videos you take with the camera or when you want to take a picture/video with it, you can see what the camera sees through this screen.
