HomeDBPower 4K camera hands-on: An affordable waterproof HD action cam

The DBPower 4K action cam is a nice compact camera with some great features. It has a 2.31-inch touchscreen that makes configuration easy. It is light at 78g (2.75 ounces), and it has only two buttons to operate the camera and video.

This 4K camera records at several different frames per second: 4K/24fps, 2.7K/30fps, 1080P/60fps, or 720P/120fps. Images can be shot at 20 megapixel, 16 megapixel, 12 megapixel, 10 megapixel, 8 megapixel, 5 megapixel, 3 megapixel, or VGA resolution. It will loop video every three or five minutes or record in time-lapse intervals of 100ms or 200ms.

There is a self-timer and burst image mode as well as an image quality setting. Other features such as sharpness, white balance, anti-shaking, and image review can be configured using the rear touchscreen.

It has a motion detection feature, gyroscope, and other features such as audio and the ability to add a date stamp to your videos.

The wide-angle lens is configurable and can be changed from a 70-degree angle, through 110, 140, and up to 170 degrees. The image can be rotated, so there is no need to twist the camera into portrait mode.

There are a lot of accessories that come with the camera, which makes this sub-$75 cam a bargain.
