Amazing quality. Don’t hesitate with this
2 August 2018
I have always fancied buying a go pro camera, but could never justify the price to myself, as I suspected that after my normal few weeks of tinkering with it, it would be confined to my pile of gadgets that ‘seemed like a good idea at the time’
That’s when I stumbled across the Crosstour 16mp 4K action cam. The price was a tiny fraction of the flagship ‘go pro’ camera, so to be honest I didn’t expect too much, but I placed my order. Under £40 delivered for all that was quoted.... camera and a big bundle of accessories... surely this couldn’t be any good?
Well, the camera box arrived the following day via Amazon prime delivery service. The first thing I noticed as I took it out the delivery case was the absolute premium feel and quality of the packaging.... a good start I thought (photos included for reference).
On opening the box, the camera was already housed in its underwater case. A great touch I thought, as it offered perfect protection for transit. This sat next to a box full of individually wrapped accessories. Incredible.
The camera and all the various mounts and accessories are of excellent build quality. Far beyond any expectation I had for the price paid. So many accessories in fact, I doubt I will ever get round to using them all.
Within ten minutes, I had managed to attach the small cradle attachment to the top of my selfie stick (previous purchase) and set about testing it out. The battery was almost charged on receipt, with a spare in the box too.
The camera is easy to use, but has plenty options at the same time. I chose to pair mine with a 32gb Sandisk micro SD card (that’s the maximum capacity the camera accepts). I picked up a class 10 one from Amazon as part of the same order for £9 with a free SD card adapter. Very nice!
The camera can take still photos or videos at various resolutions, and so far I am impressed with everything about it.
Other reviews have said that the sound onboard the camera was almost non existent, which is indeed correct, however when you play any videos back from the memory card on a computer or Mac, the sound is perfect with no issues, and I have been very impressed with the picture and video quality produced thus far.
I’m still in the early stages with it, so still to fully test all the functions and get to grips with it properly, not to mention I haven’t got a clue what some of the mounts and brackets are for, but this little camera and accessory package is serious value for money and potentially one of my best purchases from Amazon.
