If you are looking into getting a new action cam, GoPro cameras may be the first to come to your mind. However, the high price tag makes you step back. Thankfully, there are more and more new and cheaper contenders rising in China. Among them is MGCOOL which launched several action cameras like Explorer, Explorer Pro and Explorer Elite the past two years.
Recently MGCOOL made another leap in the action camera field. It claims that it will release a high-end camera comparable to GoPro 5 in 2017. Not only will it have touch screen, but it will be able to shoot 4K HD video as well. The MGCOOL Explorer 2 is a tremendous leap forward compared to its predecessor according to current information. Apart from the key upgrade of the touchscreen on the back, it will be able to deliver 4K video at 30fps.
You probably are familiar with the term “4K Video”. 4K is a video specification that literally just means “4,000”. It gets its name from the approximately 4,000 pixels of width of the footage. Generally, 4K video delivers incredibly sharp footage compared to 1080p. Shooting at 30fps means the shutter can go as low as 1/30 second. The 4k @30fps video allows a lower shutter speed meaning more light and better exposure of each frame. That is why 4K 30fps gradually becomes the mainstream.
The company will give more information and features about the MGCOOL Explorer 2 gradually. As always,, the camera will not cost too much. If you are looking for a high performance/price ratio camera, it definitely deserves a try. For more updates from MGCOOL you can click here or follow MGCOOL official Facebook and Twitter page.
