After having a decent amount of time to play around with the Akaso EK7000 we have decided to publish an actual dedicated Akaso EK7000 review of the camera to share our opinions on it and why we think that it is the best cheap entry level action camera available on the market at the time of writing. Depending on the GoPro variant you get, the EK7000 can actually be one fifth of its price while providing similar video quality depending on what you are trying to do with your action camera.
This has resulted in a large number of people picking up the EK7000 to use it as their action camera of choice without having to spend a ton of money on something that is rarely used. The excellent performance of the EK7000 has resulted in a large number of owners posting their own independent reviews of the camera online to show how happy they are with it.
This has led to further sales of the camera with Akaso taking even more of the market share away from their competing brands. In turn, more of these people post their own independent reviews that intern lead to even more people purchasing the camera and with this process repeating over and over again, it has led to the exponential growth that the camera has seen.
Before going any further we would like to quickly share our favourite video that has been recorded using the Akaso EK7000. You can see the image quality that the camera is able to provide for you and that the EK7000 is also able to provide you with some solid audio quality too.
Now, make no mistake about it, the footage in the video above is from the Akaso EK7000 and you can expect much better quality from their more modern camera units like the Akaso Brave 4 as it has newer, more modern technology on it but this in turn comes with a higher price tag.
Back to the Akaso EK7000 and its features. At the time of its release, it was one of the first cameras in the entry level action cam niche to offer full 4k video recording capabilities allowing you to capture your adventures in beautiful and crisp quality. That said though, the 25 frames per second that the camera provides is pretty limiting and it will result in jumpy footage for any high speed sports.
If you are looking to use the EK7000 in a face paced sport where a slow frame rate will struggle to keep up then we would definitely recommend that you switch it over to its 1080p setting for these moments. Knock the frame rate up to 60 frames per second in 1080p HD for your faced paced moments and you will get some beautifully smooth video.
The navigation menu on the EK7000 is very each to use and the 2 inch touchscreen allows you to quickly and easily switch between 4K and 1080P so you don’t have to waste time while out and about recording your videos. At the end of the day, the Akaso EK7000 really is an excellent little entry level action camera that is well worth the money and will make a great addition to your camera collction.
