Build and Design

Out of the box, comes equipped with the waterproof case, the Front of the Amkov 5000s has a Digital 888+ICON monochrome LCD along with the Power/mode switch button, with two led indicators and a Lens, The Left of the camera (when facing towards you) has a Wifi button and right side with connectivity slots, a Slot for micro SD card, Micro HDMI and a USB 2.0 and capture button is position at top left along along with the integrated microphone. The Back of the camera has the Removable Battery Cover with a little Amkov Logo. Overall, the design is more matured and convenient to use, but the back battery covers seems to be delicate and of  not that great quality. Few instances, i found bit difficult, opening the back battery covers.

Image and Video Resolution

Image Resolution:  20.0 Mega Pixels (5152*3864),18.0 Mega Pixels (4896*3672),14.0 Mega Pixels (4288*3216)
Video Resolution: 1080P (1920*1080 Pixels) at 30 FPS,720P (1280*720 Pixels) at 60 FPS & 30 FPS, I recommend using a class 10 Micro SD card for smooth video capture.

Good Lens, Perfect Focus, Crisp Pictures and Amazing Sharpness

I was amazed and extremely satisfied with the image and the video quality for the price that is offered, the images are crisp and perfectly focused, the video recording at the 30 FPs was sharp, on the flip side, it has a bit more contrast when compared to GOPro or Xiaomi, but this can be adjusted through the Application white balance option.I found a very minor lag no lag, through the Wifi to Phone transmission  Android Application is simple, would have been much improvised with more features like time lapse.

  1. Hey Ans how are you? First of all thanks for your support and tips here. After searching for alternatives for Syma x8G, I have decided to follow your first advice. I purchased Syma x8w and this sports cam, because of it fpv capabilities. As a noob I would like to ask you what do I need to buy to use this camera with syma x8w and have fpv video? Can I see the live video only using my smartphone? Can I attach this camera and keep the original one only for fpv? Thanks a lot.

    1. Angelo, you need a monitor and a FPV Av-out cable, this requires some tweaking and setup

    2. Thanks for your response!!! I am a noob, so What tweaking and setup exactly I have do make? Do you have some cheap suggestion? Thanks!!!!
