Meknic A12 by Zi Reviews Tech Youtube review

Description: Although Meknic A12 can record footage in 4K @30FPS (true not interpolated) ,the video quality isn’t that good. For the daytime recording, you will see that some details are gone and some of the color productions are washed out. The same goes to its 1080p. Keep in mind that this action cam doesn’t have a Gyro but has Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS). However, recording is still shaky even though you apply it. You can also control the camera via an app. Unfortunately, the app has many ads so that’s a bit annoying. It’s better to look for other cameras
