Eken H9R action camera specs, feature and expert reviews.

Summary

A fantastically cheap yet powerful little action camera by Eken, they do many different versions but this is one of their cheapest. Although this camera advertises 4K video footage, it is interpolated, which means it records at a lower resolution then just adds pixels to that to get a 4k "look", so this isn't a real 4K action camera.

There is also no image stabalization on this camera, but the quality of the video and photographs are still very good.

Reasons to buy
  • People who bought this camera thought that the remote that came with it was a great idea and really helps with working the camera
  • A few states that the app was easy to use and connect to the camera
  • Some said that it was much cheaper than a GoPro but it did the same thing
  • Many people are happy with the video quality
  • Quite a few stated that they were only going to use the camera a few times a year so were happy to spend this amount on the camera
  • There are a lot of happy customers who have used it for many different activities, running, snowboading and snorkeling and really like the camera
Reasons not to buy
  • Some users said that the buttons aren't marked which makes it difficult to first use the camera
  • Others have said that the remote will only work once you have switched the camera on

Mounting and Form

Mounting and Form

The Eken H9r comes with a gopro mount on the camera case, so you can't mount the camera to anything unless you put it in to its case. Then you can use the standard 2 to 3 fin mount (GoPro) mount types.
