Elephone Explorer Elite by Redskull

Description: The Elephone Explorer Elite is another budget-friendly action cam from China that employs the Novatek 96660 chipset and 12MP Sony image sensor. Just for information, Novatek 96660 processor doesn’t support 4K frame rates recording so if this action cam claim to be able to do so, the result will be either interpolated or it’s not really true 4K. One thing you should notice also the weight. The camera itself along with the battery is about 67.2 grams, with the waterproof case, it becomes 145.9 grams.
