    Hey Sunny, do you find that the camera occasionally crashes when recording 4K? I've tried several different memory cards with varying luck. Some record 90% of the time, others only work some of the time.

    @DrekiTech What is brand for your memory card? Some users feedback us avoid Sandisk, Transcend.

    I originally had a Lexar 633x in it. Then I tried a Transcend (had problems too), a Sandisk (worked a few times), a Toshiba (50 / 50), and an Adata (worked 90% of the time).

    It hasn't crashed yet but I only took short videos of few minutes at a time.
    How long 4k videos did you record?

    As this is a review, you should point out that the OV4689 sensor is a 4MP sensor so only has half the pixels required for true 4K video and 1/3rd the pixels required for real 12MP photos. However good the camera is, it can't "capture every detail" in 4K video or 12MP photos as claimed, unless the sensor information is wrong?

    Also, given the price I would expect it to have video stabilisation which seems to be missing from the feature list...

    Not a real 4k camera,it uses 4MP OV4689 Sensor,can not take native 4k videos.

    It's always good that people know what they are buying, then they wont be disappointed if they really wanted native 4K.

    Camera looks good, and that is a good selection of accessories, very nice that you include the case :)

    Yes, it is nice that estore009 is telling the truth to the people. As he said, the image shoud be improved, look at this aerial video from today:

    The sand is too white, too bright.

    enjoy,

    It usually freezes up right away, if it's going to crash. Once it works (with the same card), I've had it work up to 5 min. It's frustrating. I think it might be a combination of heat/memory card though because some brands definitely work better than others and the cam seems to crash more after it has been powered on for a while. :/

    @DrekiTech Suggest this TOSHIBA brand,Or other brand card features with 90M/S speed card&C10 class for 4K recording.

    I posted my own review here:


    I don't mean to highjack this thread, just that I concur with MTZ that some highlights are too bright in daylight. Perhaps the contrast is a bit high. Better dynamic range can be achieved from this sensor.

    Also I was dumping all my files into one folder on my computer and I notice that the file numbering resets each time I clear the card. So new files were always trying to overwrite the old ones. Is there any way to change the file numbering so that it is continuous until reset? Or I guess I could not be lazy and just make folders on my computer. It just might come up as a minor nitpick since on the camera the folders are simply named "photo" and "video" and if people try to copy those folders onto the computer as-is they might overwrite older files on their PC. Is there a way to label files by date? :)

    WiFi App:
    EZ iCam app works great but it requires location access for Android 6 or higher.
    Without location turned on, it doesn't even connect to the camera.
