EKEN 4K Ultra HD Sports Camera Review

Photography is one of my all time favorite things. I love taking photos everywhere I go. However, I’m not taking my Nikon anywhere near the water and I’m definitely NOT handing it over to 5-year-old Alice!! I was thrilled to be offered this little sports action camera from EKEN a camera that is similar to a GoPro at a fraction of the price. The picture quality is EXCELLENT!!

The first thing that I did was hand 5-year-old Alice the camera and told her to “go make me a video”! The EKEN 4K Action Camera kept up with Alice and took some clean crisp videos. Okay, so wanna see what’s important to a 5-year-old?? The sound is not very loud because I did have this in the waterproof case and on the handle, which explains the rapid spin around. So, remember if this is how amazing a 5-year-old can make a video think of what an adult could do!!

To switch modes for still shots, videos and to get to tools simply click the button on the front of the camera.

Click the lower button on the right side to connect to your WIFI.  This camera really is super easy to use.

In the tools you can set up so much! Video resolution, looping video, time stamp, exposure, photo resolution, burst photo, time lapse, continuous lapse, power frequency, language, date & time, sound indicator, upside down, screen saver, power saver, format, reset, version.

EKEN H9R comes with a waterproof case that’s well-fitting and tightly sealed. We’ve used this in the ocean and I can say with 100% confidence case truly protected my camera. The case closes tightly and securely, it’s not going to accidentally come open, even when Alice is holding the camera in the water. The case is crystal clear with easy to find and use buttons. EKEN H9R is waterproof to 30M!!

Charging is quick and easy. I found that the camera was fully charged in about 3 hours. Added bonus? The EKEN H9R comes with two BATTERIES!!  Using the 4k feature I can get a full 90 minutes of recording from each battery!

    Gadgetry passes me by but what a pro Alice is turning into! ‘It’s soooo soft, I wish you could feel it!’ And the glorious sunshine? AND how do you keep your carpet so clean?
