The camera is amazingly similar to this no-name product , which we had presented before half a year ago. The data sheet reads virtually identical, in addition to the same battery and display size (and price), the Allwinner V3 chipset, which is installed in both models, falls in the eye. As already noted, it does not allow any recordings in native 4K . The feedback in the comments after was also the quality of the full HD recordings not completely convincing.
Now with Elephone but a well-known manufacturer of technology adopted and they packed into their own Actioncam with the name ELECAM Explorer S. This does not change the hardware, but allows a better processing of the entire product. With the “4K @ 30fps” feature, the manufacturer as well as the Chinese shops are quite aggressive, and an “improved” version of the Allwinner chipset or the IMX179 image sensor is spoken. We remain skeptical, but wait a while.
Whether the 4K recordings are a little good or not, for under 40 €, the camera appears at first glance attractive. It should also be remembered that an extensive accessory package is supplied with the camera. Overall, Elephone here definitely aimed at the buyers, one (especially the first) Actioncam is not worth 200 €. For 40 € a full-HD actioncam with accessories is not a bad deal. First experience reports will show whether the Explorer S is even more than that.
