I think my fascination with budget action cameras stops here. Yes this camera does record in 4K but it’s not GoPro, Garmin, Sony, etc. 4K. You really do get what you pay for and the video from those cameras is markedly sharper with more accurate colors than these budget cameras. While I’m not so disappointed as to send it back, if I had it to do again I think I’d just get another Wimius Q1 since I like that camera better even though it’s a little older. If all you want is a cheap camera to record whatever floats your specific boat (or flies my plane in my case) this camera is fine. It’s function and quality are almost identical to the Wimius Q1 except the Wimius has a much better user interface, a solid driver for transferring via USB, better time lapse options, and the Wimius records in true 30 frames per second in 4K where the Akaso only does 25 frames per second in 4K. I would highly recommend the Wimius over the Akaso if you’re looking for a budget action camera.
