    The GoPro isnt that much better considering the 500% markup

  2. Tony A on March 10, 2021 at 11:28 pm

  5. Leslie Covert on March 10, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Apples and Oranges! Your a Mr Tech guy and your idea was to go head to head with the top of the line and the bottom. I don’t get it.

  6. Global Food TV on March 10, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Thanks for this awesome and honest review.

  7. Eddie Ruiz Fishing on March 10, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    That akaso could récord with only push a button?

  8. KINGDOM K on March 10, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    If you are good with davinci resolve.Its good value

  9. Unattainable on March 10, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Are all $50 cams on Amazon similar in quality? Then I will just have to get a GoPro….

  10. SuperLowScores on March 10, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    i got a gopro 8 black bundle for $250 and i am not disappointed

  11. Jwrob_playz on March 10, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Ok if you are starting out this is an amazing camera

  12. Thunder Road on March 10, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    I have a go pro 7 hero and I love it. But for someone that does not have the money to spend for a go pro are better that’s actually not bad for 50 bucks. Would make a great dash cam

  13. Ranger Rampage on March 10, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    That gopro 8 has really nice resolution, but on a fixed income I’ll never afford one, thanks for the ek7000 review it’s definitely me affordable 😁

  14. Håkan Rohdin on March 10, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    For the money I’m pleasantly surprised by the quality. The lack of EIS can be dealt with in post. And color correction can help a lot to create a punchier image similar to that of the GoPro. Of course both the used market and high-quality phones exist. I have for some times argued the best action cam can very well for certain situations be a used high-end camera with a cracked screen picked up for cheap since these are far easier to find than used high-end action cameras.

    I don’t have action cameras but despite I watch your review.
    Love from india

  16. Living with a GoPro 7. on March 10, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Ясен Хуй что 8 блек лучше , даже и нехер было сравнивать

  17. BrianVeliz on March 10, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    damm for the price is great, but its not 4k , the resolution is 2k

  18. DJ Adric on March 10, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Like the Hero 4

  19. Geefbird on March 10, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    "but it’s 4K quality looks pretty dang horrible, looks like it was shot on a potato" LMAO I laughed so hard I have to pee now.

  20. lovelessissimo on March 10, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I like the anti monster deterrent lights under the bed.

  21. Cem Karal on March 10, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Go pro hero 8 is so better than that camera because go pro has hyper smoot. İt is so usefull.

  22. Walnut on March 10, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    i had the akaso before i got my gopro

  23. Spaghetti on March 10, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    i notice gopro colors are always way off. The blues are way too blue.. the colors in general seem overly vibrant

  24. R.J & Co on March 10, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    To much pointing

  25. Eliecer140 on March 11, 2021 at 12:00 am

    50 bucks and look at that, it’s perfect, I even found an action cam in 40 bucks and same quality that AKASO.

  26. Sam Graham on March 11, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Next on news at 5….in our side by side comaparison, Lamborghini is faster than Hyundai!

  27. TRIPIX on March 11, 2021 at 12:01 am

    He is comparing it to such a good/exspensive it is good if u are just trying to record lime outdoor/fun

  28. Properties Of Allah on March 11, 2021 at 12:01 am

    2:33 You are not being honest 🙂 You filmed this in two different times. Because the clouds behind you are different. Not in the same day. And one Zoomed in the other zoomed out to sharpen the picture.

  29. bcK_ on March 11, 2021 at 12:03 am

    It looks more like a $30 camera with the extra $20 for accessories :/

  30. zaedlo on March 11, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Next he will compare a 2CV with a Porsche, this video is like a broken pencil, pointless.

  31. Garden State on March 11, 2021 at 12:04 am

    not bad for akaso to be match to a expensive GoPro….

  32. Jamal on March 11, 2021 at 12:05 am

    I got gifted the akaso and you put it nicely but it’s trash. For 2021 standards completely underwhelming.

    If you buy an action camera, your Probly shooting cool footage with it and you’ll realize the last thing you want is low quality on action shots/experiences you might not get to experience again. Don’t cheap out on an action cam. #2cents

  33. EbaGaZuda on March 11, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Too Bad they couldn’t find a way to put it APS-C Sensor on a GoPro which would be way better for video recording. Or what if GoPro put 2 Cameras on Front and a Rear Camera like smartphones?

  34. Frickanator on March 11, 2021 at 12:08 am

    can you review the Amecrest GO?

  35. the_height_ of_life on March 11, 2021 at 12:10 am

    You get what you pay for

  36. Properties Of Allah on March 11, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Actually I have both these cameras, and I can honestly say I prefer the Akaso to the GoPro. It looks a lot clearer and it is not pixelated, and it does not shake AT ALL. I don’t know what you were using right there but it didn’t look like an Akaso EK7000) quality.

  37. Al P on March 11, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Before you all run to spend so much on a money hungry pro, check the Akaso V50X even better. I do not have any connection with Akaso but after owning two, I have to say that they are a winners in my book. I use both on my motorcycle and the quality of 4K is superb for the price. Why should I pay the CEO of Go Pro his Lamborghini’s lease !!!! I am waiting for the Bravo 7 to come out soon.

  38. Christopher Hampton on March 11, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Check that 10$ more one. I want a decent camera for my 8 year old so he leaves my hero 8 alone lol

  39. Be Safe on March 11, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Nice

  40. Private Pilot J Morris on March 11, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Dude, you’re comparing apples tp oranges! This video doesn’t make any sense.

  41. david crawford on March 11, 2021 at 12:15 am

    I’m new to this…can I record with it and load to my laptop without a mem card ? TY.

  42. koalaKingsly on March 11, 2021 at 12:15 am

    ben thanx a meg for your wonderful side-by-side–just ordered one of these akasos for my wife assuming it had image-stabilization–thank goodness I saw your vid in time and that amazon is so kool about letting us change orders

    again ben: thank you!

  43. Florida Catholic Guy on March 11, 2021 at 12:17 am

    If we ever get the $1400 stimulus check I’ll get the hero8 or maybe the hero 9.

  44. Christina on March 11, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Thanks for this useful video 😀

  45. IRIA on March 11, 2021 at 12:19 am

  46. misshulagirl05 on March 11, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Lame 😒 I already bought this camera because the reviews were so good 🙁

  47. Shuqeen racer on March 11, 2021 at 12:19 am
