I recently purchased the Akaso EK7000 sports action camera refurbished on eBay for $35 and I rate it a thumbs up. ¬†Amazon has the same camera new for $70 and it’s highly rated (4/5, 5700 reviews). GoPros are nice but expensive and I was looking for a low cost option for skiing, the beach and water parks.


  • Excellent video and photo quality
  • Easy to use
  • Low cost and includes a wealth of accessories
  • Accessories are plentiful and GoPro compatible


  • Mobile app can be glitchy
  • Lack of true 4K support. However, for me 1080p at 60fps is sufficient
  • I wasn’t able to get the remote control to work but it’s not a big deal to control via buttons. The audible alert signals when recording is enabled.
  • Out of the box, the camera required to charge batteries. However, an external charger and two additional batteries are just $11.99 on Amazon
