|Overall rating 3.9 / 5|
Well suited for beginners, the IMars M80 Cam has a great photo sensor and great design.
To achieve better sound quality, even a dual microphone is integrated.
In the menu, you also have the opportunity to make many different settings. The model is often bought by divers and water sports enthusiasts as it has a waterproof case.
Another thing that made us particularly happy is that the camera design is very different from the competitors’ models. So you won’t get the action camera here in the standard version.
The kit also includes a range of accessories, so you can use the iMars M80 Cam in different ways.
We disclose all the details here in the action camera report.
Technical data and facts
The camera can be controlled with a 2.4G controller, which can also be attached to a wristband or pants.
Also integrated is a Wi-Fi system that you can use to connect the action camera to your smartphone. Images are also streamed here in real time and you can make many different adjustments.
Since action cameras are often used in exciting situations, photos can come out blurry. The maker of the iMars M80 has taken this into account and has developed an electronic image stabilization system so that photos are not blurry after they have been taken.

Camera, photo and video resolution
In order to create breathtaking images and videos, the manufacturer has installed a high-quality photo sensor. This is Sony IMX175.
This is a 5.77mm (1 / 3.2 type) CMOS photo sensor with a square pixel array. The power consumption of the sensor is very low. It also has an electronic shutter with adjustable charge storage time. The chip is also used in other devices such as smartphones or tablets.
The lens is a F2.5G fisheye lens with a 170 degree wide viewing angle.
The camera has 20 megapixels, but this is interpolation. This means that the resolution is extrapolated by the camera and does not match the actual value. In our opinion, this is a clear criticism.
You can set several different resolution values in the menu. We have written them down briefly for you.
For video recording, you can choose the following:
- 4K @ 30fps – with or without electronic image stabilization
- 2.7K @ 30fps
- 1080P @ 60 or 30fps
- 720P @ 120fps
Various modes can be set in the menu. For example, you can record a looping video, here you can select Off. / 1 min. / 3 min. And 5 minutes. There are also different intervals for time-lapse photography (Off / 1 sec. / 5 sec. / 10 sec. / 30 sec. And 60 sec.).
There is also a slow motion option that can only be used with 1080P (60fps) and 720P (120fps) resolutions.
You can also set white balance, ISO value and choose between many different languages.
In terms of design, we particularly liked the layout of the controls and the rounded contours of the model.
On the back is a 2.0-inch HD display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels.
The battery that was installed here has an average runtime and delivers up to 1A at 5V operating voltage. If you want to fully charge the battery, it will take up to 4 hours.
What is the maximum recording length ultimately depends on the video resolution setting and the type of use, such as which modes are used.

How good is the model compared to the competition?
The low price speaks in favor of the iMars M80 WiFi camera. The action camera can be purchased at regular stores for around 50 euros, but that’s not all. We’ve even linked an online store for you below, where you get another discount and end up paying just over € 35 for the model.
The value for money is unmatched compared to the competition. Photo and video recordings are very high quality for this price category. The only thing that bothers us a bit is the interpolation, which we think can be kept as the recording quality is actually not much better.

Compared to other cameras, the controls are located above the model rather than on the side. The cam can also be operated while in the underwater housing.
