  2. AKASO - EK7000 SE 4K Waterproof Action Camera with Remote - Black - Angle_Zoom
    Top comment

    "The battery life is alright I feel like it does quicker maybe 30-40 mins probably due to me having it on 4k but overall it’s pretty good. The adhesive for mounting it on your helmet is a little tricky it had fallen off on me not riding but when I would set my helmet down and come back the next day to get it so I suggest either a strap on your chest or screwing it on your bike ....The Akaso EK7000 is a pretty solid budget-friendly action camera. It shoots in 4K at 25fps, which is impressive for its price point. "

    "The picture quality is 4K and not surprisingly very good. Stability has some minor movement on videos but is not significant. ...There's a 90 and 120 FPS option however they don't seem to be any better than the 60fps mode but for the price I'm okay with that. 4K is only 30 FPS just like the GoPro 7 and there's no way I'd spend that much money for the GoPro 7.
