First action cam

4 posts in this topic

Well I finally decided to get a action camera to mount either to my helmet or my bike someplace to capture my rides (mainly for my viewing) I ended up getting a cheap one to start to make sure I'll actually use it and how it all works before stepping up to something more expensive.

So I am starting out with the Asako ek7000 4K cam. I think I'll just do 1080 at 60fps for the rides. Anyone using action cams feel free to share any tips for mounting or settings.

I'll try to add a short review of what you get for $84 and hopefully can upload some rides on here if I get anything decent.

Well this ek7000 camera shows up today so once I get it mounted and everything I'll run it and post a short review here in case anyone is thinking about getting one. I'm hoping it works good enough to let me figure out if I even care to capture my rides on video without breaking the bank.

Think I will start with handlebar mount instead of helmet for now.

Ok so I got the Asako ek7000 out this weekend on one of my rides and forgot it on the Fathers Day ride:nono:. I just uploaded the videos and took a quick look and I am highly impressed with the quality of the video for $80 and even on the bumpy backroads the vibrations did not seem obnoxious to me(go pro mount or something from RAM Mounts would probably make it even better). The only thing I noticed was I'm not sure how great the sound quality is but it is not horrible by any means. Also direct sun made a small red reflection in a corner but rest of video looked great. I'll test it on my TV which will let me know more on sound quality. If I figure out how to post a video clip I will so anyone thinking about picking one up can see what your getting for $80. I'm not getting into vlogging but I do think it would be nice to capture some of the rides I go on to show my little kids.

Well I got it up on TV and actually the sound is pretty decent. Low wind noise and captures the engine fairly well. All and all may not be the best action cam on the market but may be the best for the money.
