The action camera market may have reached oversaturation, but that hasn’t stopped companies from making them. Ezviz, a maker of home security cameras, is releasing two action camcorders that compete against market leader GoPro’s Hero4. While there are plenty of no-name budget action cameras that claim to do the same thing, Ezviz actually uses similar components and features as GoPro cameras.
The Ezviz Five+ and Ezviz Five share a similar body that weighs 2.5 ounces and measures 1.8 x 2.3 x 0.9 inches – slightly smaller and lighter than a GoPro Hero4 Black or Silver. Both share a 1/2.33-inch Progressive Scan CMOS sensor from Sony and a 3mm f/2.8 lens with a 158-degree field of view; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (802.11b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1 in the Five+, and 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 in the Five); 2-inch IPS touchscreen (480 x 320 in the Five+, and 320 x 240 in the Five); Micro USB 3.0 and Micro HDMI ports; mobile app for editing and sharing; and underwater depth of 131 feet when used with a housing. The camera also support Micro SD cards of up to 128GB versus 64GB in the Hero4 Black and Silver.
