Today we are going to be covering our Akaso Brave 4 Review that we have been meaning to get around to posting for a fair few month now but simply have never had the spare time. Thankfully though, due to a few plans changing over the last weekend we ended up with two days spare and decided to take the Akaso Brave 4 out for a spin to see exactly what it is able to do when put through its paces.
It doesn’t take long to see why it has proven to be such a popular entry level action camera at all an in our opinion, it is only going to become more and more popular as time goes on. It has a very low price tag considering the performance and robustness it provides making it the obvious choice of the entry level cameras on the market right now. This has resulted in its reputation growing at an exponential rate within the extreme sports community with more and more people picking the camera up and using it as their go to camera of choice.
Here are some of the key features the Akaso Brave 4 boasts helping to push it ahead of the other cheap GoPro alternative action cameras on the market:-
- Video resolutions including 4K/24fps, 2K/30fps, and 1080P/60FPS.
- A maximum photograph resolution of 20MP.
- Some of the best image stabilisation on the market at this price point.
- Wi-Fi compatability.
- Wide angle photography angles that support 170°, 140°, 110°, and 70° degree view points.
- Fully waterproof to 100 feet when in its case.
- 2 inch colour screen.
- Excellent battery life via its included 1050mAh battery.
All of this comes together to let you capture your adventures no matter where you are with excellent quality. This lets you upload your video footage to your YouTube account when you get home to show all of your friends your adventures. We have an example video below that was recorded using the Akaso Brave 4.
As you can see, Akaso have came a long way over the years with their cameras coming on leaps and bounds when compared to their Akaso ek7000 that was one of their earlier cameras. A number of competing entry level action camera brands have also released their second or third version cameras to try and compete with the Akaso Brave 4 but we feel that only the Campark Act74 comes close in our opinion.
A common fault with the more budget friendly action cameras out there right now is that they simply do not have the robustness needed to help keep you going through the more extreme sports where you action cam is likely to end up taking punishment. Thankfully, Akaso have designed the Brave 4 to be as robust as humanly possible to remove this issue.
This has resulted in one of, if not the most well rounded entry level action camera available on the market today and it is no secret that we love it. Everything just works and is a testament to how much development Akaso have put into their action cam range to help them keep their dominance within the niche.
