DBPOWER EX5000 Action Camera
The DBPower EX5000 is a great little camera with a lot of features for a very reasonable price.
The EX5000 is tiny and records to a microSD card which isn’t included. What is included is a huge array of accessories such as a protective case, additional battery, and tripod mount to name but a few.
There are loads of options to dig through and experiment with and I was pleased to see a timelapse mode. These sorts of tiny cameras are great for timelapse as you can leave them setup and they don’t take up much space while they record over a long period of time.
Video quality is good although be aware this is a wide angle lens.
It’s compact enough to pop into your pocket or bag when not in use and it only takes a few seconds to power up and start recording.
If you’re looking at setting this up in a tricky to reach position you can make use of the WiFi connection by using an app called Finalcam. This connects to the camera and streams the image live to your mobile as well as giving you on screen controls so you don’t need to physically start the recording on the camera.
Great all round camera package, especially for those looking to try out this sort of camera without investing hundreds in the well known and established brand that it’s clearly taken inspiration from.
