Action cameras have been around but their 4K ultra HD counterparts are a relatively new addition to the mix and offer a wonderful mix of the hardy toughness of conventional outdoor activity cameras combined with the exquisite capacity to film your sports and outdoor adventures in full 4K ultra HD resolution at a decent frame rate.
This is what the AEE S71 Outdoor Edition Sports video camera offers to its users and although its nowhere near as popular or well known as the GoPro Hero line of 4K action cameras, it does deliver the goods from inside a tough, rugged external case that’s built to endure plenty of dust, grit, bumps and water splash that you might end up putting it through as you use it.
The AEE S71 Outdoor Edition Sports video camera offers a robust package that comes with no shortage of good features which make it not only compare well with the GoPro Her 3 or 4 but also actually make it a possibly superior 4K action camera to others such as Sony’s X1000V and Panasonic’s HX-A500 in certain ways.
For starters, the AEE S71 offers a 16 megapixel 10 frame per second burst shooting capacity that lets you capture wonderful, surprisingly fluid sequences of fast action photos which are perfect for stunt moves and sudden flourishes of motion. On top of this there are the 16 million pixels of the photo camera and the 120 frame speed shooting capacity that comes with video in 720p HD. Great for viewing or reviewing your photos/images on your 4k television.
Additionally, in the area of its 4K and HD video capture abilities, the AEE S71 can deliver ultra HD 4K (3840 X 2160 pixels) at a modest but decent 15 frames per second, Cinema 4K shooting (4096 x 2160 pixels) at a somewhat useful 12 frames per second and 1080p Full HD video at a robust 60 fps.
The AEE S71 also allows you to capture video in 960p HD at 60 frames per second and offers 720p HD at 120 fps.
A number of other features include WiFi connectivity, remote control capacity, a 12x digital zoom and an extendible wireless transmitter.
In terms of toughness –since this is after all an action camera- the AEE S71 is solid at enduring water down to a remarkable depth of 300 feet, can endure both extremes of heat and cold to a range between -10 degrees and 50 degrees Celsius and operates in even the extremely high 80%+ humidity of tropical and subtropical conditions.
