Re: I had a new camera for Christmas...

I didn't realise that this is actually a real camera, till seeing your post over at the E-group, Barr1e
( I thought it was one of the miniature cameras that Ian was selling )

It looks a super bit of kit. Would be interesting to see some of the results in the forum.

Re: I had a new camera for Christmas...

Just trialling my Fitfort action camera today for the first time in its clear waterproof jacket. Methinks if I can get the settings right a gimbal would be quite useful for the making of videos.
If I'd had an extension pole with a tripod fixing I could have made use of the camera without its waterproof casing.

=========================

Here is a pic from Chesham Pond. The image and the video were taken on a cloudy day so when the sun takes its hat off we may well improve on what we got.

Re: I had a new camera for Christmas...

Is that the AKASA EK7000?


I have been using a Yi 4K Plus - it's very good indeed. I've also been experimenting with motorised gimbals, both for the action cam and smartphones.


In fact I took a lot more smartphone pictures than conventional camera photos duing2018.

Hi Ian -

It is a Fitfort an Amazon brand I suspect. It had very good reviews over many sites, hence its purchase. I see they are out of stock and little sign of it appearing again - although it still remains on their American site.
If I had realised how good the results were from a small camera I would have asked Anne (whose gift it was to me for Christmas) to choose the Yi ++ which has a form of stabilisation.
It has produced a few good family videos taken over and since Christmas.
