Today we are going to look at an action camera made by a company called GeekPro.

This 4K action camera by GeekPro, latest model being GeekPro EOV1 Plus, performs much more than I had expected with it’s price. This action camera is targetted for people ranging from those who want to record extreme sports to just everyday footages.

The market for action camera is becoming more competitive as various companies compete for customers by pulling down the price of their products. This is one company that I’d have to commend for their ability to sell this camera of this high quality at such a low price.

2.4 GHz Remote Control

Oh, and about the remote control that comes with it, it is a 2.4 GHz frequency and it claims to be able to control it up to 30m(100ft) away from the camera but most users have tried and only found that its effective distance was between 15-20m. But still, it is a pretty handy tool when you have a monopod with you or want to take a selfie 5m away.

This remote control can also worn like a watch by adding the wrist strap and it is really helpful when  controlling the camera from a distance. Oh one last thing.. it isn’t totally waterproof so don’t say I didn’t warn you. 😛

Pros VS Cons

Pros

  • Cheap and affordable 4K action camera. I mean where else would you find something like that?!
  • Video Quality is as they said, crisp and detailed
  • Battery life is pretty decent at about 2 hours of filming per charge.
  • Bag that comes with it is really useful to house all the accessories

Cons

  • The camera’s video quality might drop if recorded directly under sunlight.
  • Watch not that waterproof as they claimed.

Summary

I feel that it is a really one of the best if not the best cheap action camera as it packs so much into one small camera without compromising the quality of the content. So if you are not willing to spend a few hundred bucks on a Go-Pro give this a try, I am very sure you will like it.

If you have any questions or doubts regarding the Evo1 Plus or anything related to action cameras in general, feel free to leave a comment below. Thanks for dropping by! =)

  1. Its insane how much stuff comes with the camera. I bought a canon for almost the same price and it came as is. I have been wanting to get a go-pro for a while but they are so expensive.
    Reviews like these really make camera shopping easier. Thanks for the insight.

    1. Glad you like it and eased your shopping experience! =)

  2. Hi Kai,

    What great information.. I am a photographer and the camera’s that you are reviewing are new to me. I have heard and have a gopro but have not heard of Geekpro. I will definitely be checking back to see what other types of camera’s you will be reviewing.

    1. Thanks Monika! Glad that you find my content and my website useful!

  3. Hey there! I found your article very interesting and informative to read. I’ve been doing airsoft lately and I’m planning to get a action camera. I want to record the footage while I’m in the game. Gopro cameras got my attention I heard good things about it but it is pricey. After I read your article this is a very good action camera for under 150. But I have a question which one do you prefer this or the gopro? Thank you for your response.

    1. Hi John thanks for dropping by. For me, a Go-Pro as you said, is a little too pricey even for me, hence for me I would prefer a cheaper yet good action camera such as this. This is because sometimes, there’s a small chance that your camera will get lost and your 400+ bucks will just disappear like that, hence even if i lose a cheaper action camera, it would still not be that much of a heart break as it is cheaper than the Go-Pro. Hence, to conclude, I would prefer this as compared to a Go-Pro most of the times.
