Elephone Elecam Explorer S by Redskull Youtube review

Description: For a camera that costs around $60, Elephone Elecam Explorer S offers you a 4K recording experience. Before you get too excited, however, the Allwinner V3 CPU isn’t the kind of CPU that supports 4K. This means that you probably will record footage in 2K and it will be interpolated to 4K. Talking about Allwinner V3, the microphone sounds produced will also echo and sometimes buzzing. Both recordings and taking pictures with this camera don’t turn out good. It lacks details, not sharp, and certainly has pixelation issue. It’s better if you choose another camera rather than this one.

Pros

  • Employs Allwinner V3 chipset & Sony IMX179 image sensor
  • Supports Wi-Fi mode, car mode, and Smartphone connect
  • Able to record footage in multiple frame rates: 4K @30FPS, 2.7K @30FPS, 1080p @60/@30FPS, 720p @120FPS
  • Package includes waterproof case (30m)
  • Microphone sounds is bit out of synch
  • Can capture up to 16MP still images

Cons

  • The 4K recording isn’t the true 4K (interpolated)
  • In-built display screen isn’t bright enough for outdoor activities
  • On-board panel doesn’t have good viewing angle
  • No Image Stabilizer
  • Camera footage isn’t great
  • Nighttime recording is very dark and has no details
  • Picture results are also not good
