We took a close look at the Gembird ACAM-W-001 WiFi Full HD camcorder and will explain in this report whether this camera is worth it and what it can be used for.


The manufacturer of this camera itself is probably unknown to most people. However, it not only manufactures cameras, but many other electronic accessories such as computer items.

Waterproof camera Gembird ACAM-W-001 WiFi Full HD can be used as an action camera and as a regular video camera.

Full HD video resolution at 30 frames per second and 2 megapixels produces excellent recordings. The maximum running time is about 3 hours.

Although the model lacks Bluetooth, it does have WLAN, USB 2.0 interface and HDMI output.

Design and appearance

The appearance matches that of a standard video camera. The dimensions are as follows: 8.7 cm (width) x 5.5 cm (height) x 4 cm (depth). Weight is about 142 grams.

A small photo camera lens is at the front, while a 1.5-inch Sports Cam display is on the right.

The camera is completely waterproof thanks to the IP68 housing, so you don’t need an additional protective housing.

Image sensor, resolution and memory

The image sensor has over 2.0 megapixels and the lens has a 140 degree wide angle lens.

There is a small snapshot button above the camera, and there is also a single, triple and interval recording function.

Both the images and videos are impressive, but it must be said that there are cheaper products out there right now that can do more, which is mainly due to the fact that this camera is already a fairly old model. SDHC and SD memory cards are supported.

Menu navigation and recording modes

The navigation through the sports camera menu is pretty clear and you can easily access all the functions.

What is a camera for?

With this action camera, you have the ability to capture impressive shots while you pursue your hobby or travel.

It doesn’t really matter if you’re on a motorcycle, underwater, or snowboarding in the rain, because the camera is not only splash-proof, but also waterproof. It also works well as a DVR.

Many camera accessories are included in the package, which must be attached to the camera.

Pros and cons


  • Splash and waterproof
  • Cheap Action Camera
  • Extensive accessories with multiple brackets
  • Long battery life


  • Not very high resolution
  • Old camera model


GoPro cameras are currently the leading action cameras in the market. They usually deliver exceptionally high quality recordings, but they are damn expensive and not everyone is willing to spend that kind of money.

So now there are many cheap brands that have also proven themselves because cams are cheaper and they have a lot to offer. Action camera Gembird ACAM-W-001 WiFi Full HD is one of such inexpensive models.

We were very impressed with the long battery life, which is much shorter than other action cameras. The resolution could have been slightly higher, but otherwise the model is really great!
