I received this camera within 2 days of purchasing which was a nice surprise, it was a good upgrade to my HTC RE (4) and I did not want to overspend at the time due to budget constraints. Currently using it as a point and shoot when I am out and about with my family. Videos are clear and pronounced so I have no qualms about that (using 1080p 60fps, it can do 4k 30fps).
I set the camera up to snap 3 photos at a time, so I do not miss anything, unlike the RE which was susceptible to blurred shot this camera took all 3 shots in quick succession without any blur which is a major plus in my books; Wide angle lens too so I capture wide shots and cram everything into the one picture.
The camera comes jammed packed with accessories, addons and instructions as well as two camera batteries which lasted about 8 hours with shooting constantly and videos.
Memory Card: 32gb Samsung Micro SD Class 10 Shooting Conditions: Only have shot in day and afternoons. Settings: Quick screen saver (battery saver) turned on, Video 1080p 60fps, Photos 20MP mode.
Bang for Buck, took a chance on the camera and was not left disappointed.
Bought this product to replace my old action cam. I was looking for 4k cam but don't want to spend too much money. After reading some detail, decide to try this product.
Product came with lot of accessories such as two batteries, waterproof case, dust proof cover, lot of mounts and adhesive pads (not sure I will using all of the accessories but waterproof and dusk proof cover came handy during my trail walk). Manual is basis. I wish it could explain all the settings of the cam in detail.
Lots of setting (there are 14 different settings you can use for different purposes). Video resolution from 720p to 4k with option to shoot 60fps till 1440p. Maximum image size is 20 MB. Option take photos in burst mode or time lapse mode. You can set Lens angle to Wide, Medium or Narrow. ISO settings from 100 to 1600 (useful if you want to take photos or videos in low light). There is also option to select different scene such Person, Scenery, Underwater and Defogging ( I have tried "Scenery" and got good pictures).
Photos at 4k setting is vivid. Video also looks good. Wish it had ability to zoom.
You can control cam remotely via their app. After downloading the app and turning on the wifi, you can connect the cam to your phone and access all the settings via phone. You can click photos and videos as well. Only annoying feature I found is that once the cam is connected to phone, you can control the cam only from the phone, all the buttons in the cam are disabled. Also, I am not able to access the photos in the cam from the app (Maybe I am missing some settings or something). Another thing, I found annoying are the buttons on the waterproof case is not smooth and you need to press hard to use the button.
Accessories itself is worth $10 to $20, if you buy it separately. So, for the price, I am happy with the product.
I needed a cheap action camera i could "abuse" for a short road trip. The package was processed and arrived just 2 days after purchasing! the box came with plenty of accessories and to my surprise the camera came with a waterproof case already! This alone would cost near $100s for the extras.
The Camera itself shoots very repsectable still photos and videos, on par with the base model GoPro. Battery life is around 30-40 min of non stop video shooting, At this price point this is a no brainer and offers amazing value for a 4k action camera.
I was in the market for an action camera with a higher resolution than my GoPro Hero 5 Black edition and APEMAN ticked all the criteria. Out of the box the Trawo Action camera provides a variation of attachment pieces and 2x 1350 mAh Batteries. Trawo Action camera isn't completely waterproof on it's own, it does require the waterproof casing which is provided although dampening of sound quality is expected as per the older versions of GoPros requiring waterproof housing. The 20MP Photos when downloaded on the phone give the camera justice; I've found the photos to be quiet clear and detailed when compared to that GoPro Hero 5 Black, my personal experience at least.
The camera does feel light in the hand as its made from a lighter plastic; without the waterproof housing the camera doesn't feel quiet as robust as my GoPro Hero 5 Black. The camera is quiet easy to use when operating and the app YUTUPRO which is used to connect to the app I've found to be seamless and straight forward to connect to via my mobile phone. The display screen on the camera isn't the greatest resolution and brightness although when connected to the phone via the APP a more accurate display of the image is displayed. The camera requires use of the buttons on the device as it isn't touchscreen. The camera does allow for play-back of video and viewing of photos on the device.
Overall, the APEMAN Trawo Action camera is great for its price point for what it offers, specs wise. In terms of having a robust action camera I would recommend the buyer leaving the waterproof housing on the camera to protect it from the elements.
I was very sceptical when looking at budget action cams as a Go pro is so much more expensive, but i decided to buy this one as the specs were too good not to try for the price point.
This is only a preliminary review but so far so good. I will eventually mount this to my motorcycle for rides. The quality is actually really good in both picture and video form. It handles lighting changes fairly quickly and the mic is really sensitive which was good to see. The video i attached is only 1080p but you can even see how dirty my windows are!
The menu is easy to use and has so many settings that even somebody who wants to be specific with video output or lens width can adjust. The other feature which lured me into buying this cam is the sheer amount of accessories and mounts that come standard. I always hated how expensive everything is for go pros.
2 batteries standard is also a great extra. The only thing you will need is a high quality SD card for 4k. i don't use 4k so it does not bother me. 1080p is more than enough for editing videos. I cant wait to get this on the bike.
The only negative is that it lacks the finish and design of more expensive brands but for an entry level 4k cam this thing so far is great! The support team are also great at answering questions.
I'm really excited to buy this economical priced action capital and put it to use. It is a good action camera which can does it job well, it also can records video and takes pictures like you would expect. It comes with a ton of extra parts such as extra waterproof cover, 2 batteries, mounts for bike, helmet, adhesives, and clips, etc. I am planing on using this thing for snorkeling and scuba diving, biking and just fun adventures. Take a look at my pictures, its a high quality product for a good price rather than paying for the go pro which is way more expensive.
I have had this camera for over a week now and i really like it, i was planing buying a go pro but this camera does the job just fine too. The best thing is that it comes with so many cases and mounts so you do not have to spend any extra money apart from getting a good SD card. The wide angle looks cool and the image stabilisation works well. The battery life is not surprisingly long however you get 2 batteries in the package which would cover you for a full day. My favourite thing is that you can connect it to your phone via WiFi and you can control from your phone. This is very useful if you are planing on doing some time-lapses. overall good value for money
Price is very good. Camera is easy to operate. You can record and charge at the same time without the waterproof cover. If you use your phone as the remote, the power in the battery of the camera goes down far too quickly hence why you get 2. Might last 1 hour. It is better not to use the remote if you want it to last longer. I'd suggest getting another 2 batteries either way. Night quality is poor. Evening is not too bad. Day is best. It's a good investment for the price. Can't compare to GoPro so anyone who says it's as good probably works for Apeman or their retail agent. Quick delivery. Overall 👍🏻One big plus is the response of the APEMAN customer service. They are quick to reply to any problems and suggest solutions. For that alone I'll go from 3 stars to 4.
In short... Lots of accessories. Great batteries. High bitrate. Image quality great for a sub $200 camera. Good hardware. Fast focusing, wide 170 degree angle (adjustable in software) Came with the latest firmware out of the box installed. Skeleton case included. Many more.…
CONS. For the money, really.. nothing? Images a little vibrant.. but I just edit my videos anyway. Maybe add some colour profiles in the software (neutral, warm, cool, vibrant)
This camera is great. High quality vids and pics. Shoots video in 4k and it also can do videos in slowmo. Comes in a waterproof kit and various clamps and attachments. 2 batteries as well. Wow. Loaded set. I must say I was surprised by the amount that came in the box.
