EKEN H9 Ultra HD 4K Action Camera from EU £32.20 @ GEARBEST

82
Found 25th Mar 2016
I ordered one a while ago for more than this and it is a brilliant little camera.
just don't buy it for 4K or 2.7K as the FPS is too low, but 1080p @ 60FPS is awesome.
also if you need batteries the SJCAM ones not only work with it, they also improve the battery life quite a bit.

they do the same cameras from china a couple of quid cheaper but I would personally not bother as whist they always arrive, they can take over a month to turn up.

anyway, details below...

Bough this last time it was on sale from Gearbest EU. Arrived within 5 days.

Bought a similar action camera from GB. 12 days to arrive and for the ££ it's a steal! Extremely happy with my one.

Mine didn't last five minutes. The usb port just came off inside of the camera. Absolute junk.

got this on my motorcycle. awesome images

A link to the SJCAM batteries? Will order at the same time.

These ones? SJCAM Battery

Yes that one :-)

Good deal, Gitup Git2 also looks good for £84 with image stabilisation and external mic feature, long delivery time though.

Why is this one cheaper. For £31:

It also has other colours available, like black. What am I missing?

same one, just ships from China, if you don't mind waiting then it is a couple of quid cheaper as stated in my original post, but i would personally would prefer to spend the little extra and have it in a few days :-)

Does this come with extra mounts? I assume you can use this as a dashcam like the sjcam4000 wifi

How would you compare this with sj4000 sports version?

It looks pretty good for the price, but not quite up to Go Pro levels!

It's ok, but you have to buy everything else for it. Mount. Waterproof case etc etc. It comes with nothing

4K at 10 fps? Might as well buy an dj can or yi

That's true, but for better than 1/8th the cost not too many will be complaining!

tbf the gopro seemed incredibly flat and would need some sort of grading processing as its so wishy washy
only time it looked better was on people imo as ekin was abit oversaturated
the level of detail seemed much higher on ekin and the shadow detail thing could partly be as its -0.7EV as it seemed a bit darker overall anyway (and contrast possibly too high)
any sharpening/contrast/saturation options etc on these?
is there any dynamic range optimisers for video editing or would that take crazy processing power?
colour balance also too variable with ekin
(had sound off but will trust the review!)

didn't actually realise they were so wide - its basically constant fisheye which isn't great
any with a narrower field of view?

That's good, I didn't realise that

All colours out of stock from EU.

are these the same size and lens placement as a gopro? I need one for a gimbal on a drone

Banggood have EU stock £40 use code c6b45b for 10% off Most colours here

Not bad price

Jesus needs an action cam to show how he pulled off the resurrection

This or a Xiaomi Yi?

I wiuld use Banggood, but never again Gearbest. You might as well take your money and flush it down the loo.

Thats not true it comes with lots of accesorios, waterproof case, mount etc. I hace this camera but havent used it yet.

Out of stock on the EU site. I ordered one from the Chinese website with the 2 extra batteries plus charger, in black for 38 quid.

I'm in no real hurry to get it...

Will this output wirelessly to an android mobile ? To use on a cheap drone

Elephone ELE similar to the Yi but with all the accessories included,the wifi ap for this is also good,probably the best
deal at £42 as its 35% off.

Yes, as stated it comes with all variety of mounts. Only annoying thing is it doesn't have a screw thread in the actual camera base itself to attach to things, it pops into a little frame if you want to mount it on stuff, or put it inside the waterproof case.

Sorted now, i cut and pasted but it included a space. Thanks, just saved me a few extra quid

Ordered for a cheap drone setup. Thanks OP

It's certainly not a 4k *action camera* but if you dismiss the 4k aspect and treat it purely as a 1080p device it makes much more sense.

That actually suits my needs as im going to try it under my cheap drone so saves it being upside down as drone fixing is on under side (hopefully)

Black available now for £31.13 or $44.
10% quidco and GB offered me another $5 of at the end of checkout for my "loyalty".

(Does that site that I'm buying to much from them?!)

No EU stock but nabbed a black one at $43.99 with free priority shipping (10-15) days.
Will be replacing the SJ4000 on my drone. I read that the batteries and cases (including the waterproof housing) from the SJ all work with the Eken, which is great.
