Review: EKEN H8R 4K Action Camera

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored or requested but based on my personal review.

Hello again, fellow readers!

Few years back I did a review on SJ4000 Waterproof HD ActionCam. The photos weren't great and they seemed to be bluish and needed editing all the time. So hubby decided to sell it and bought EKEN H8R 4K Action Camera. There's another model which is H9R but quality wise almost the same as SJCam.


He chose silver just like the SJ4000. I'm a noob when it comes to tech savvy so he chooses all gadgets for me. Oh btw he also gave me a Sony A5000 as an early birthday present. Should I do a review?

Specification
Similar packaging as SJCam but comes with a remote. A clear waterproof case comes with the camera so you don't have to purchase a casing separately.

List of functions and standard features.

6. Small size photos (4 megapixels)
7. Sharp but full of noise
8. There is a reason why cheaper than my SJ4000. That you need to ask the seller. If you see the accessories you will notice something missing and it's missing for a purpose.
China brand ma.
