Since its establishment, MGCOOL has been committed to developing action cameras like GoPro and bring to the market affordable alternative options. Last week we talked about two new affordable 4K action cameras that MGCOOL is about to bring to the market. And now the company proves that it’s seriously into the action camera market by putting up for preorder the MGCOOL Explorer, one of its affordable 4K cameras.
This new ultra compact camera -Explorer- features an Allwinner V3 SoC and a 16M Sony CMOS sensor. It is capable of recording full motion H.264 4K video @15 fps, 1080p video @60fps or lower 720p @120fps. You can control it directly or remotely from a smartphone via built-in WiFi (10 meters). When you put it in its waterproof case, the camera can function in fresh or seawater at depths up to 30m. It also supports for a microSD card with up to 64GB capacity.
If this is the first time you are going to buy an action camera, don’t go all out and buy a top-of-the-line GoPro. Instead, start with a budget device to enter the action camera world smoothly and with a small budget. Remember, action cams aren’t just about extreme sports. The MGCOOL Explorer 4K action camera is available for pre-order for only $49.99 at GearBest.com.
